Kore Essentials Tactical, The Best Gun Belt?

I have always been a belt wearer but often its been a love hate relationship. Working as a pro shooter I need a belt capable of carrying heavy kit while remaining wearable and comfortable. It needs to be just as comfortable when I’m at the office or out to dinner with clients. Previously I have……


Mechanix 0.5mm High Dexterity Tactical Gloves

If you do a lot of shooting in all environments you will no doubt wear gloves or have tried some. If you have ever scraped your hand along Picatinny rails when it’s -5c then you will know why gloves can be a sensible option. My main issue with gloves when using a Precision Rifle has……


Sniper Solutions – Wind Finder

We have moved into a time where nearly every variable the long range shooter has to contend with can be calculated digitally. We have scopes with built in range finders, phones which can measure pressure, inclination, temperature. And of course we have ballistic calculators. Although companies have tried there is one variable that has proven……


Steiner M5Xi Riflescopes

I am lucky enough to have a job which gives me access to some excellent shooting equipment. For the last couple of months I have been using Steiner M5Xi scopes exclusively on a number of weapon systems. I have also had the opportunity to visit Steiner in Germany and gain an understanding of their manufacturing……


Applied Ballistics Seminar North Carolina

I was recently lucky enough to attend the Applied Ballistics seminar in North Carolina. When I say “lucky” I mean it because I live in the U.K. That is a pretty long trip and not cheap. My company sent me in order to expand my ballistics knowledge and I am very thankful as it proved……


WMS Firearms Training – Wales

Formed informally, the committee is a group of target shooters who belong to disparate NRA affiliated clubs. They meet regularly to enjoy discourse and long range shooting. So named after a black and white photo resembling a meeting of a soviet collective farm, the committee is dedicated to safe shooting and a bit of science…….


Civilian Service Rifle – Urban Contact Match U.K.

The MPGS Gurkha on guard is positively beaming. He looks like the happiest man in Pirbright, and there is nothing he would rather be doing¬†this early Sunday morning, than check in 100 civilians onto his base. He’s assisted by Fred from the NRA, who is armed with a list of names as he verifies the……


Extended long range – ELR

Lets get this straight out there.. I have read and heard a lot of BS regarding extended long range shooting. I think movies and video games probably have a lot to do with it. Because someone has become a pro at sniping from 1000yds+ in Call Of Duty they feel this may somehow extrapolate to……


Sig Sauer Kilo 2000 Rangefinder

When it comes to all things shoot related, I am probably one of the luckiest chaps alive. I work as an instructor at one of the very best ranges in the UK (Orion Firearms Training) and I get to see almost every variable piece of shooting kit there is, whether firearms, binoculars,……


Building a Presicion Rifle Part 5 – Long range steel in the snow.

I must confess I am a little behind regards writing articles. I have been very busy shooting and testing kit which is very important or I would have nothing to write about! Last week I made the winter pilgrimage to Wales with some of the regular crew with a goal in mind. To run the……
