FIREClean – Pat McNamara + KAC SR-16

It’s always fun to watch Pat McNamara at work and in the above video, he wields a custom 1911 to demonstrate a ‘turn and burn’ drill at 10, 15, and 20 yards. In the time leading up to the drill seen here, Pat put 2500 rounds through that same pistol, which was treated with FIREClean, cleaning it only just prior to the drill.

This bonus video shows the results of using FIREClean on a KAC 11.5″ select-fire SR-16 Direct-Impingement carbine. 3000 rounds of 5.56 ammunition were run through the gun, and it received no additional oiling or cleaning, only an initial treatment with FIREClean. All shots were suppressed, mostly fully-automatic fire.

Impressive? I think so.

    Mac is the man. Why can’t we clone him and make him everyone’s PSG?

  2. Chuck says:

    Can we just clone one and make him my Platoon Sergeant?

  3. Just curious, what units did McNamara service with?

      This is why we post the backgrounds of all of the Gunfighter Moment contributors in every article. Some readers are now and/or aren’t familiar with them.

      Pat McNamara (Mac) has 22 years of Special Operations experience, 13 of which were in 1st SFOD-D. He has extensive experience in hostile fire/combat zones in the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. He trains individuals at basic and advanced levels of marksmanship and combat tactics.

      When he worked in the premier special missions unit, he became an impeccable marksman, shooting with accurate, lethal results and tactical effectiveness. McNamara has trained tactical applications of shooting to people of all levels of marksmanship, from varsity level soldiers, and police officers who work the streets to civilians with little to no time behind the trigger.

      His military experience quickly taught him that there is more to tactical marksmanship than merely squeezing the trigger. Utilizing his years of experience, McNamara developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant and encourages a continuous thought process. This methodology teaches how to maintain safety at all times and choose targets that force accountability, as well as provides courses covering several categories, including individual, collective, on line and standards.

      While serving as his Unit’s Marksmanship NCO, he developed his own marksmanship club with NRA, CMP, and USPSA affiliations. Mac ran monthly IPSC matches and ran semi annual military marksmanship championships to encourage marksmanship fundamentals and competitiveness throughout the Army.

      He retired from the Army’s premier hostage rescue unit as a Sergeant Major and is the author of T.A.P.S. (Tactical Application of Practical Shooting).
