Daniel Defense Firearms…Again!

Well, the good folks at Daniel Defense have trusted me with some more of their cool products! At the top is their DDM4 PDW pistol in caliber 300 Blackout and at the bottom is their DD5 V4 rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor.
 
The pistol will be tearing up berms at my gunclub, while the rifle is set to head to the GTI Legion facilities where it will be fired at targets out to 800+ yards.
 
Can you say “Yeah Baby!!”
 
Stay tuned for the reviews of both firearms in TheTruthAboutGuns.com.

Armageddon™ Gear for the GTI Tactical Course

I have been given the opportunity to attend a Government Training Institute Tactical Course on December 7th and 8th. Invited by my good friend, Ron Differ, I am very excited – and a bit nervous! – to try out shooting at targets positioned at distances up to 900 yards.

As part of my preparation, I needed to find a source for a shooting mat when shooting from a prone position and a rest for the butt of the rifle during the prone phase and the forend on other portions of the course. Finally, I needed a wrist board on which to record the necessary sight adjustments for the widely-varying distances. With this in mind, I approached the premier suppliers of all things related to Tactical shooting: Armageddon™ Gear.

One phone call and email later resulted in Tom Fuller‘s very generous offer to send this freelancer a set of Armageddon™ Gear’s Tactical-shooting products. The items sent included their Game Changer™ Support Bag, Ultralight Shooting Mat and Competition Data Armband.

With the MG Arms Banshee (their Long-Range Tactical Rifle) and the Gold Medal Federal ammunition, I am as prepared as possible. Now, I just have to be able to hit the targets…no pressure there!!

MG Arms Ultra-Light in 7mm-08

The two rifles from Carol and Kerry O’Day, owners of MG Arms, arrived yesterday. I was hoping to take both rifles to the range today, but we are receiving some of our ~50 inches of yearly rainfall. So, instead of rangetime, I spent several hours in a very enjoyable photo session with an MG Arms Ultra-Light chambered to 7mm-08. The plan is to photograph the ‘ultimate longrange tactical rifle’ (i.e. the Banshee) tomorrow.

I thought I would share a few photos of the Ultra-Light.

1) Whole Rifle Angled

6) Skeletonized with Bolt in

This Ultra-Light, like all MG Arms products, is a high-quality and accurate-as-heck firearm. To prove that I’m not being hyperbolic about the accuracy, I’m also including a JPEG of the sighting-in target that Carol sent to me.

3) 7mm-08 Group

The ammunition used to obtain this sub-sub-MOA group was hand-loaded by MG Arms staff. They included boxes of the same hand-loads with the Ultra-Light, thus I will have NO excuse for obtaining larger groups during my shooting sessions. No pressure there!
