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 …

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 …

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 …
