If you’re here, you probably love to shoot as much as we do. Because we take shooting seriously, we also take our gear seriously. We know that when you can trust your equipment, you can focus on what you love most - shooting.
Why We Do It
We also know that the world of shooting gear is massive and that navigating that world, especially for new shooters, can be intimidating and downright confusing.
This can be a problem when you’re researching new gear, and it’s compounded by the fact that there’s a ton of misinformation about firearms and shooting circulating out there.
Not only are shooting sports often highly misunderstood by the media, politicians, and 2A critics, there are also a ton of “shooting” websites that don’t give a hill of beans about providing solid, useful information. Instead, they focus on churning out poorly written content full of inaccurate (and sometimes dangerous) info.
Those sites have one goal, and one goal only - to rank high in the most popular search engines so their owners can make money. And so the content is often produced by writers who don’t know their way around a firearm and only focused on pumping content.
If you’re a shooter, you can spot those sites a mile away. You’re probably just as frustrated as we are, especially if all you want is practical shooting advice and honest gear reviews.
That’s why we started this website - to offer solid content written by solid shooters with decades of experience under their belts. We wanted a place shooters could trust, not one that was run by marketing experts with little to no experience behind a firearm. And we’ve done just that.
How We Do It
What makes us different? You mean besides our real-life experience and passion for the shooting sports? We’re glad you asked.
We Take Research Seriously
We make it our duty to keep up to date on all the latest shooting gear that hits the market. We know how to keep our ear to the ground. When we aren’t at the gun range, we spend our time in shooting forums or scouring the internet for industry news on cutting-edge innovations and exciting new products.
We also take field research seriously. One of our favorite things is getting our hands on new guns or gear to test firsthand. We love putting new rifles, optics, ammo, and other gear through their paces at the shooting range.
We Love to Shoot
Our favorite place to be is the shooting range. We’ve spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours there. Not only do we consider it our “happy place”, it’s also where we’ve honed our expertise.
In addition to being avid shooters, many of our experts are shooting or self-defense instructors, competition shooters, and expert hunters. Some also bring military or law enforcement experience to the table.
We’ve compiled a team of passionate shooters who eat, sleep, and breathe the sport. We are constantly striving to learn more, shoot straighter, and share our passion for guns and gear.
We are ready to tackle whatever questions you have about tactical, hunting, and shooting gear, so don’t be afraid to hit us up in the comments section. We also love to learn from other shooters, so if you want to share your own experiences, we want to hear those, too.
