While shooting the Guardian Long Range Competition at the Marksmanship Training Center, I had a chance to speak with Kirk Young of Precision Rifle Media. Kirk extended an invitation to bring me on the Precision Rifle Media Podcast to discuss the Guardian Match. Kirk has some great content and brings on a wide variety of guests. The Precision Rifle Media Podcast is available on the web and on iTunes for Apple fans. Make sure you check it out!
On a cool dark Michigan morning, I found myself driving up highway 66. I was not quite sure what I was looking for since this would be my first trip to the Marksmanship Training Center. Locating a range for the first time can often be like an easter egg hunt. Thankfully GPS coordinates (+44.482147, -85.178525) for MTC were posted on the registration page.
As I neared the coordinates, I saw a small yard sign advertising the Guardian Long Competition next to a dirt road. A little further down the dirt road, you arrive at the gate to the Marksmanship Training Center. The large permanent MTC sign here makes is pretty unmistakable.

When you carry a handgun for most of your waking hours a good belt is a critical component. Much like the “perfect” holster, shooters are always on the hunt for a better belt.
One of the problems that I frequently encounter with stiff “tactical” style web belts, is that I either cannot get them tight enough or they work loose. Leather “buckle” style belts often cause you to choose between one hole or another (or punching your own hole). The Nexbelt is advertised as being able to solve both of these problems.
Nexbelt was kind enough to send us one of their new Titan BD Tactical Ratchet Belts to review. I have been wearing the Titan BD daily for several weeks now both in my daily routine and at the range. This is quickly becoming my belt of choice. Continue reading Nexbelt – We Review The Belt with No Holes
This year I had the pleasure of competing in the 2016 Sniper’s Hide Cup. The “Hide Cup” was shot on private property near Colville, WA. The location is notable for being the most scenic I have ever shot in. There were lush mountain sides and deep valleys. One hundred and forty eight shooters turned out to brave the weather for two and a half days of “field” shooting. Continue reading 2016 Sniper’s Hide Cup
Modular Driven Technologies is a Canadian based company that has been making rifle accessories for some time now. In the past we have reviewed the LSS chassis and the HS3. After reviewing those systems, we received several requests to review the TAC21. The MDT TAC21 Chassis predates the LSS and HS3. It seems to sit at the opposite end of the design spectrum. All three chassis use AR type stocks and grips. The LSS and HS3 take an almost minimalist approach to chassis design. The TAC21 is a behemoth in comparison.
