Aimpoint's newest offerings, the Comp M4 & M5 are fantastic red dots that now use standard AA and AAA alkaline batteries without a loss of run time. That's a great step forwards for a number of reasons, but really, what's going on here? How do these things work, how do they do this?

In this video Ian and Karl discuss the history of Aimpoint and the technological advances they continue to bring to the combat optics industry.

We discuss stage 6 as well as have some overall thoughts about the end of Day 1 of Hard As Hell 2 Gun 2018.

Stage 6:
Clear the room, check the corners, scale the wall, move the 100lb weight across the bay and then engage 5 zillion hidden paper targets!

This year Karl and Russell Phagan (Sinistral Rifleman) worked together on this video series, both of them shooting in Armored Trooper.

Karl is using a highly modified AK74 in an attempt to see how competitive he can be with a Kalashnikov platform, along with a Hudson H9 modified with a Delta Point Pro, and Sinistral Rifleman is using his top of the line KE Arms 15 and KE19 Stealth Special.

We used this match to do something a little different: discussing strategies on how to shoot the stages, along with post stage analysis of those strategies (success or failure).

During the battle of Guadalcanal, John Basilone had to displace with a M1917 machine gun a number of times. At one point, he lost the asbestos glove and sustained significant burns in the process.

Stage 5 is inspired by Basilone's Medal of Honor winning contributions to that battle; the shooter's non-dominant hand is rendered in operable by having a tennis ball taped into it; move the M19171 machine gun to three separate positions, then run your rifle through a course of fire, then proceed and finish with your pistol - all one handed!

The 1860 Spencer repeater was adopted by the cavalry but then mostly abandoned for the single shot 1873 Trapdoor rifle & carbine.

That seems like a curious move, so in preparation for more of our future Lever Gun Series videos, we decided to see if we could figure out why by testing both rifles against each other on the clock.

Was the US Military right at the time, or not?

Welcome to Stage 4 - climb the table, engage the moving targets, walk the plank, shoot from the confined space, crawl through the tunnel, swing over the pit, draw your pistol and neutralize the rest!

Welcome to Stage 3 - all pistol, downloaded mags, high round count transitions from one moving target to another all while distracted by a speaker system blaring the sounds of war behind you.

The M27 IAR has been adopted to replace the M249 SAW.

This moves the squad automatic weapon away from a belt feed system to a magazine feed system, not unlike the Russians did with their transition from the RPD to the RPK.

Is this is a good idea? Let's discuss.

In this video we have a very special, very brutal 2G-ACM pistol only stage.

Ian has a G19 w/Delta Point Pro and Karl has a Hudson H9 w/Delta Point Pro.

We shoot, we score, and we discuss the merits of both pistols as well as the important goal of shooting under physical and mental stress.

In 1914 Spanbroekmolen was the site of a windmill.

At the end of the First Battle of Ypres in November 1914 the German Front Line was established in this location on the high ground of the Messines Ridge.

Between then and 7th June 1917 the Germans spent a year and a half developing well-established positions here with concrete bunkers and strong defensive positions.

The mine at Spanbroekmoelen was started by 171st Tunneling Company, Royal Engineers, on 1st January. Six months later the mine was finished. To celebrate the mine's completion two officers made their way into the chamber with four bottles of champagne and drinking glasses. The main charge for the mine was made up of 50 LB (pound) boxes of ammonol, totalling 90,000 lbs (pounds).

The main charge was finally completed on 28th June 1916 and officially completed, according to the War Diary, on 1st July 1916.

The attack on Messines Ridge had been planned since January 1916.

However, it had to be delayed to June 1917, because of the Germans offensives at Verdun and the Somme.

Once blown, the mine left a 75m wide by over 12m deep crater, and the detonation destroyed the German lines.

The site is now a memorial called the "Pool of Peace".

Ian sits down with Ken Hackathorn to discuss the origins of practical shooting, specifically IPSC, IDPA and 3 Gun.

They chat about what started each discipline, what went right, what went wrong, and the early days of the infamous Soldier of Fortune events that really started everything.

Ian commissioned the production of a one-of-a-kind built left handed G3 and then augmented it with top of the line Spuhr accessories in preparation for an upcoming 2g-ACM match.

In this video we discuss that process, what was done to the gun and why Spuhr G3 accessories really modernize the rifle successfully.

It's pretty outrageous how some "shooters" treat public land, but it's even more surprising to see this sort of behavior at a free public improved range.

This video is just a brief tour of the sorts of unfortunate behavior that does exist amongst the gun owning community along with a call for the majority of us that do not behave this way to ostracize those amongst us who do.

AUDIO ISSUES: Yes, the audio in this video is potato. We know. We're publishing it anyways as it's still worthwhile based on the larger discussion.

We borrowed a Scar 17 "Heavy" to put through its paces.

We ran it through 3 stages at Az2gun and culminated with a mud test, which will be the end of this Scar 17 series.

InRange has, and always will, be interested in putting historic firearms through their paces in competition - both against one another and against modern equivalents.

That said, however, we see people still arguing that bolt guns are still relevant and in this video we discuss why that really is not the case.

The Assault Machine Gun from Knight’s Armament Company delivers the needed sustained volume of fire to an assault element at a low enough weight to keep pace with an assault.

With a low cyclic rate of 575-625 rounds per minute, and constant-recoil/spring run-out operation, it is more controllable than other similar machine guns that weigh nearly twice as much.

In this video we discuss the gun, its intended role, field strip it and discuss the history that lead up to the creation of this new Light Assault Machine gun.
