Learn Marksmanship from 3-Time Nat’l Champion Brandon Green

USAMU Basic Riflemans Course SFC Brandon Green High Power Shooting Training

The U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) has produced an excellent series of videos, which collectively cover the Basic Rifleman’s Course. If you are getting started in High Power shooting, or want to improve your position shooting skills, this series is well worth watching. And these videos are not just for service rifle shooters — even bench shooters can benefit from these videos, particularly Part 5, which explains how to estimate wind speed and direction. The lead instructor for these videos is SFC Brandon Green, the reigning National High Power Champion, and Service Rifle Champion at the 2017 CMP Trophy Matches. When SFC Green talks, you should listen.

SFC Brandon Green is a shooting superstar. Green won his third NRA National High Power Rifle Championship in 2018 at Camp Atterbury, Indiana. He dominated the HP Championship cycle, finishing eight points and ten Xs ahead of his nearest competitor. Brandon also won High Power National Championships in 2015 and 2013. And in 2017 he set new records at the CMP’s National Trophy Matches at Camp Perry. One of the greatest marksmen in the nation’s history, SFC Green has no weaknesses, excelling at all positions, both rapid-fire and slow-fire.

Part 5 — Wind and Weather Estimation (Very Useful for All Shooters)


Note: This video includes a hit location “target analysis” in the first 6 minutes.

Part 4 — Minute of Angle Explained

Burris Sale discount Eliminator 3 III laser rangefinder scopeBurris Eliminator III SALE
The Burris Eliminator III 4-16x50mm smart riflescope is now available for $999, a $500 savings off MAP (Minimum Advertised Price).

The Burris Eliminator III is an advanced electro-optical device that combines magnified optics with a built-in laser rangefinder and micro-processor. With the push of a button, the Eliminator III ranges your target. Then the micro-processor “brain” instantly calculates the required holdover for that distance, and displays a red dot on the reticle. Simply put the red dot on the center of your target and pull the trigger. The Eliminator includes an inclinometer, integrated smart dope card, and rangefinder rated to 1200 yards on reflective objects.

Who Should Use the Eliminator III?
For folks doing high-volume prairie dog and varmint shooting, we like the Burris Eliminator III. Just push a button, and the scope determines the distance to the target, calculates the hold-over, and then displays a red aiming point in the reticle. We have used the Eliminator and it worked well on critter-sized targets out to 600 yards, and deer-sized targets further out. Burt remember, you still have to make the right wind call!

Burris Fullfield Series Optics Discounts

Walther 30-Day Money Back Guarantee for PPQ and PPS Pistols

Walther USA pistol ppq pps m2 q5 polymer steel-framed

30-day Money Back Guarantee. We’ve seen that for some home appliances and cleaning products, but never for firearms. Walther may be the first pistol-maker to allow you to own a modern handgun for a full month and then send it back for a complete refund. That’s right, you can purchase any new Walther PPQ or PPS, and use it for 30 days. Then, Walther declares: “If you don’t love it, return it on us.” Yep, Walther will even pay for the return shipping. If the pistol does not fully meet expectations, return it to Walther for a full refund of the purchase price, including tax and shipping.

Walther’s Marketing V.P. Bret Vorhees explains: “Consumers are often hesitant to put down their hard-earned money on a firearm purchase, simply because if they don’t like it, they are stuck with the product. Walther is proud to be the first company to guarantee customer satisfaction our of our pistols… giving the consumer more options”.

Here is how the gun industry’s first 30-day, money-back guarantee for pistols works. After purchasing a new PPQ or PPS handgun from a licensed FFL dealer, the buyer can take the gun home and shoot as much as he/she wants for up to 30 days. Whether you buy the new pistol from a local gun shop or an online retailer, the pistol qualifies for the guarantee. If the pistol does not fully meet expectations during the initial 30-day period, the purchaser can return it to Walther for a full refund of the purchase costs, including tax and shipping. This applies only to the first purchaser of a NEW PPQ and/or PPS pistol.

The return process is simple, follow these easy steps:

1. Visit WaltherOwnersClub.com and click “Return a Firearm”.
2. Fill out the form with your contact information.
3. Upload a copy of your receipt or proof of purchase.
4. Submit the form and print authorized return shipping label.
5. Pack unloaded firearm in original case, and deliver to Fedex location.

Walther says purchasers who follow these procedures should receive their refunds within two weeks. This offer applies to all Walther PPS and PPQ models, including the newer PPS M2 series, and the outstanding PPQ Q5 match pistols (see below):
