In this episode of NOIR, LaSorte gets on his soap box about having some courtesy while in your car and on the range. We do some shooting with professional boxer Gary Russell Jr. and LaSorte’s mouth finally gets him in trouble.
On this weeks episode of NOIR, I learn that someone people can’t stomach the way I hold my rifle. Also, I finally give up the dirt on where I got my .357 hat and I give thanks to my supporters for holding me down all the years.
When it comes to red dot optics, Aimpoint is at the top of the list. Unfortunately, when it comes to red dot prices, they’re right up there again. There’s no point trying to pull punches: Aimpoint are expensive. I’ve always been enamored by the company’s reputation for making unbreakable optics with alien-like battery lives. However, we are talking about a red dot on a piece of glass, so it’s hard for some people to quantify why something so simple can demand such a high price.
On this weeks episode of NOIR, we discuss whether a shotgun is the best home defense gun, I see a bullet button for the first time and we sit down with former NFL linebacker Andrew Kline and discuss whether or not Athletic Shooting can become a professional sport.
“Okay, here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to go around the corner, and I want you to act like you have a gun and I am an attacker coming to kill you. I’m going to come flying at you, and I want you to shoot me before I get to you.”
Why don’t they just shoot him in the leg? If I had a dollar every time someone asked that question I would have enough money to buy a new gun every week. On This weeks episode of NOIR we talk briefly about the concept of shooting threat in the Leg. I also review the Coonan .357 Magnum and LaSorte has a bit of tactical relapse on Ep.16 of NOIR.
Travis Haley, Rob Pincus, Dom Rasso, Gary Russlle Jr., Edgar Jones, John, Wayne Walding, and Andrew Kline each ran the demanding 14-stage NRA Freestyle course designed to put their athleticism, firearms training and mental toughness to the test. Find out who will win the NRA Freestyle Challenge at the end of the season.
My phone chimes indicating I just received a text message: “Would you disown me if I put a Nikon Optic on my AR?” I’m sitting in the middle of my living room floor, decompressing from a long day, and eyeing the coyote-brown Daniel Defense DDM4V5LW lying on the floor. It’s almost 12 a.m., and my friend is still texting me about guns.
On this weeks episode, LaSorte and I spend some time with Green Beret John Wayne Walding. John Lost his leg during a six-hour firefight in Afghanistan and went on to become the first amputee to graduate the Special Forces sniper course. Now, he builds custom rifles through his company 5 Toes Customs. I also review the 500 Magpul Series shotgun from Mossberg.
