    Some TRUTH right there.

  2. PTMCCAIN says:

    I heard it said: “Speed is fine, accuracy is final.”

    Great video.

  3. Darkhorse says:

    These guys are in a class all by themselves and teaching relevant, proven tactics.

    I wish them all the best!

  4. Jon, OPT says:

    It really is as simple as that.

  5. SamHill says:

    I hope they are making this series again.

  6. Attack 7 says:

    Old guys always talked about how history is funny, you’ll see this again, etc. 1998, ANCOC, a week of TF Ranger AAR (all units) – It seems it has come full circle, guys are pitching ‘turning off the firefight’ again! Next thing industry will hear is, “you wear eyepro to fight through the enemy’s effects.” Good on these guys for bringing it back out!

  7. Gerard says:

    Great info by top notch guys

  8. Mike says:

    Fantastic info, I’ll have to keep an eye out to see if I can join a class with these guys.

    As an aside – Chris looks like a modern day Jon Snow (which is intended as a compliment).


  9. Marcus says:

    Those who know, teach in simple truths.

    That’s some real, quiet wisdom right there.

    ….”My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit!”

  11. Kev says:

    Anyone have a lot of time with an LPVO up close? These studs are running a RDS in an offset mount along with the Razor? Don’t see a lot of dudes running the combo but obviously these guys know their shit.
