Meet the new Sole of Spartan
The new sole of Spartan Race.
According to Larry Vickers and SSD this is THE rifle that took down OBL.
Guessed as much.
If you guessed this exact configuration I’m gonna need you to play the lotto for me
You could have guessed the illuminator, optic, and rifle with high probability but the rest, pretty rough.
I definitely figured it was a 10.5” 416 from the word go.
What rail is that? Looks like a weird geisslie(sp)lol rail
Pat McNamara - Neglect
We sometimes neglect working on the fundamentals. These are the core skills around which everything rotates. It is sometimes necessary to lie flat on your belly and work basic rifle marksmanship (BRM). Refresh on the importance of building a position to achieve a natural point of aim. Understand that without a natural point of aim, there is muscular input and where there is muscular input there will be movement in the weapon when fired. This will have an adverse effect on the desired impact of the round fired.
When you work BRM, you appreciate external ballistics and the effects that wind, temperature, humidity, and angle have on desired impact.
You develop an understanding that this differs from one round to another depending on the make, grain, caliber, and type of round.
“Single shots should be practiced one round at a time. BRM forces us to concentrate on the fundamentals. These fundamentals should be engraved into our hard drives because as tactical gun handlers we must be able to perform certain skills intuitively.
There are facets that must be felt and performed at a subconscious level. i.e., loading, pre-combat check, safety manipulation, building a position, achieving a natural point of aim, sight alignment, trigger control, feeling the metal on metal imperfections in the trigger group, calling your shot, seeing how far the sight rises, seeing where the sight settles, following through, realigning the sights, and resetting the trigger. These must be practiced in near slow motion.
You must have a firm understanding of minute of angle and the accuracy of your rifle. You must know how your sights adjust. You should have a basic understanding of external ballistics to understand the possible adverse effects caused by winds, temperature, humidity, and angle.
BRM allows the shooter to establish a tempo or demeanor.”

Small, Light, Fast.
The tendency for many is to go for the biggest weapon possible. I know a lot of people who like big blades and big handguns, but end up leaving them in their car or house.
Make sure your defensive weapon is in a size and weight you will realistically carry every single day.
Carrying a weapon some of the time is carrying it none of the time.
Raven Concealment Systems- I’ve been working closely with RCS on a new product. It should be available around second quarter 2014. If you stop by the booth maybe they will tell you about it, maybe not?

This is part 2 of 2 in my series on my first Tough Mudder experience. In part 1, I wrote about what I learned from the day. Here, I’m going to describe each obstacle that we had on Sunday, September 29 at Mount St. Louis Moonstone. Note that each event presents different obstacles and you…
I have to say this was the hardest physical thing I’ve done in my life. Before this the most I’d done was a pretty basic 10km obstacle course, NOTHING like the ~20km and 18 HUGE obstacles of Tough Mudder.
Along with the obstacles, this was set in Yorkshire moorland, which is basically hills…
