Blaser Tac 2 Law Enforcement Buy

It has been brought to my attention that a US based police department is negotiating a ONE-TIME buy for Blaser Tactical 2 barrels. These would be coming from Germany.  I do not have time lines or prices as they have not been set yet. The purchase will be for barrels only. Not magazines. The calibers available will only be the 4 …

Blaser Tac 2 Protest Overwatch

With all the Marxist violence that has been taking place across the country, our nation’s SWAT teams have been very busy. Why you ask?  Simple. Do you know ahead of time if the planned protest in your neck of the woods will be peaceful? Or violent? SWAT teams don’t operate behind the curve. If things go sideways? They are ready. …

GA Precision FBI HRT Rifle

So Officer Mike and Doc were back at the 600 yard shooting position testing it out. Not the rifles, but the grade.  Should I put a permanent bench there? Or maybe grade it flat? Perhaps leave the hill to more accurately simulate real world shooting positions?  Not sure. Still deciding. But during all this, I got a chance to see …

The Spotter McGee Target

One thing I have learned over the years without fail, is it’s always good to have a new pair of eyes look at something I am intimately familiar with.  The reason being these new eyes aren’t invested in my personal vision quest, bias or ego. And frequently, these new eyes will see something I do not. And in this case, …

Missed Opportunity

Did you ever have “the bag” loaded in the truck and never checked to see if it had a magazine included? Well…that seems to be the case with “Officer Mike’s” LWRC REPR.  It’s been in The Armory for a few weeks and it never occurred to me to check the bag for a mag. That is until I am trying …

Cold Weather Range Shakedown

So…it was a 1 degree day with winds gusting from 15-20mph. And “Officer Mike” wanted to see the rifle range progress. And I wanted to do some target maintenance.  Have to admit, when we discussed setting this day up; I didn’t know it was going to be so cold. When I figured it out, I half expected him to cancel. …

SCAR 20s Has Arrived

One of our good friends, who our readers have seen shooting his SCAR-17s many times, has sold off his 17 and replaced it with a SCAR-20s. It seems one of the SWAT snipers brought one to team training and it was the “Belle-of-the-Ball”.  I don’t have hard numbers, but it is my understanding multiple team members put in orders.  In …

Police Snipers Confirming 1000 Yard Dope

I had a chance to shoot with some police snipers a while back. The main goal of this trip was to confirm 1000 yard dope on multiple rifles. But what is interesting is what you don’t see. A bunch of super high-dollar rifles. Sure…you see some nice glass and suppressors. But you don’t need a $7000 rifle to get the …

Officer Upgrades His Sniper Rifle

A friend of the blog, “Officer J”, reached out to share some photos. He has upgraded his call-out rifle to a folding stock chassis and has outfitted the old stock as a dedicated night vision rig. Pretty interesting pics. He writes… “…I picked another Tac-2 up, but this one came with a modular chassis. It’s pretty sweet, but heavy as …

Don’t Dis The Rifle

Personal reality check. Sometimes I forget that people watch what I do closely. Sometimes too closely. Gun people in particular are really bad for this. Let me explain. Yes, you will see some fancy, rare and high-end weapons on our social media properties. It is what it is. But at the end of the day, it’s out picking up YOUR …

SCAR-17 Gets a Bad Rap and other Cliches

Perusing some of the bigger precision rifle shooting forums and you will detect a common thread among a wide variety of shooters: The SCAR-17 doesn’t rate. That is probably true and at the same time, wildly incorrect. Let me explain. Major life rule: Always know your audience. Who says the SCAR-17 is a joke as a precision rifle? A guy …

POTD — Blaser Tactical 2 Police Sniper

A Police Sniper shares with us a photo from a training cycle he recently completed. Pretty neat image and worth posting. I think his Blaser is very interesting with the camouflage finish. Much more professional than mine for sure. Thanks to J. for sharing the photo.     Marky www.John1911.com “Shooting Guns & Having Fun”
