Tubb Instructional DVD Can Benefit Position Shooters

David Tubb’s instructional DVD, “The Art & Technique of the Modern Match Rifle”, is a great resource for any High Power or position shooter. This 2-disc DVD provides over 4.5 hours of instruction and shooting demonstrations. We’ve watched the entire video and can assure you that it is excellent. Novice High Power and prone shooters who apply David’s methods should definitely improve their scores.

David has included highlights from that DVD in a shorter promo video. While the shorter video is a sales tool, it’s very informative in its own right. Watch the video and you’ll learn a great deal just by watching how David shoulders his rifle, and how he adjusts and maintains his shooting position. David shows examples of prone, sitting, and standing positions. In the short “trailer”, David also provides helpful tips on adjusting sights, and placing the spotting scope.

If you shoot Service Rifle, High Power, or prone, you can benefit from watching this short sampler video. The full 2-disc DVD is available for $49.95 from Creedmoor Sports or Superior Shooting Systems. With over 4.5 hours of content, the DVD covers all the across-the-course positions, the set-up and use of aperture sights and diopters, High Power and long range targets, the approach method in offhand, proper placement and use of spotting scopes. The DVD includes bonus footage of David shooting strings in all of the across-the-course positions.

New DeLorme GPS Offers Satellite Communication Capability

Delorme Text Messagaing SPOT GPSDeLorme has come out with a new, handheld GPS that can send messages via satellite, using SPOT satellite technology. What’s the benefit? This allows a user to stay in touch with others (or reach emergency responders) even when out of cell phone range. With its texting ability, DeLorme’s new Earthmate PN-60w offers many of the benefits of a satellite phone, at a fraction of the cost.

The Earthmate PN-60w is the world’s first handheld GPS that enables Type & Send text messaging via satellite. With the PN-60w you can send a text message (with your location), from pretty much any spot on the globe. Having that capability can be a life-saver for a hunter or hiker stranded in the wilderness. Messages are created on the PN-60w’s internal keyboard, sent wirelessly to the separate SPOT communicator, then relayed via satellite to individual email addresses, cell phones, buddy lists, and/or geo-caching websites. In case of emergency, SOS messages can be sent directly to rescue services with the user’s GPS coordinates embedded.

Delorme Text Messaging SPOT GPS

As a stand-alone GPS, the Earthmate PN-60w has premium navigation features including a 32-channel GPS chipset, dual-core processor, 3-axis electronic compass, barometric altimeter, elevation profiles, and GPX file transfers. The Earthmate PN-60w comes with DeLorme Topo North America GPS maps and desktop software included, with topographic and street coverage of the U.S. and Canada. The unit can also display high-resolution aerial imagery, official USGS and Canada topo maps, NOAA nautical charts, and Navionics charts, (all extra cost). The text messaging, track progress, and emergency SOS/911 features are activated via separate fee-based SPOT subscriptions (not included in hardware price). MSRP for the PN-60w and SPOT Communicator bundle is $549.00, with product availability in July.
