A chat with Chuck Rossi from Open Source Defence

I spoke to a few people about my upcoming interview, and the general response I got was ‘oh… who?’. Fair enough, I guess, this is a little bit of a tangential subject for me, as most people know me from talking specifically, and technically about long-range precision shooting.

A chat with Caylen Wojcik

Caylen Wojcik is a face that some of you will already know quite well. I first came across him in the extras section of the...

Ryan Hey

You know, for a man all over social media, it's actually kinda hard to find out much about the man! I was looking for a decent BIO to include with this post but kinda came up short. Ah well. Bearded Viking Warrior who shoots rifles, really, really well... how does that sound?

Todd Hodnett

A great interview with the original cowboy of long-range - Todd Hodnett.

Brent and Chris

A great talk with two very experienced pistol shooters, but also, two people passionate about growing the shooting sports in NZ. Brent is from GunsNZ and Chris is from The Auckland Shooting Club.

Frank Galli from Snipers Hide

I feel very privileged to be able to talk to this man. Frank is such a wealth of practical, realistic and just plain right information when it comes to Practical Rifle shooting. Never one to back down or follow trends (actually, he seems to create them), Frank is all about questioning everything, testing everything and applying everything to your shooting and your system.

Graeme from Taranaki Long Range Shooters

While I was down at the recent Tarata Long Range Shoot, hosted by Gillice Practical Rifle Shooting - I caught up with Graeme - one of the founders of the Taranaki Long Range Shooters - originally a Facebook Group, and now growing into a fantastic shooting club.

An overview of an awesome Sako Carbonlight / Swaro Scope setup…

The Sako Carbonlight remains one of my favourite lightweight factory guns. It's build quality is phenomenal, its function sublime. While I get to setup and shoot a vast array of firearms, I am always happy to see a Sako turn up, because, with the right ammo, it is going to shoot! This 6.5 Creedmoor was no exception.

Avoiding spoilt meat – some causes

There is a wide amount of reasons meat gets spoiled in the field - ranging from a little gamey tasting to a rank rotten mess. However, good handling and processing practices for animals goes a long way, gets the most out of the kill and pays the respect due for taking an animals life. Take your time, do it right, enjoy the results.
