During the course, Joe and I were paired as we shot from a railing. I could hear him muttering about how my .300 Winchester Magnum was vibrating him off his rest. I told him that he too should be shooting a real-man’s caliber. I guess that is when he found out I was a smart aleck. Even so, Joe seemed pleased to act as my guide for a tour of the Daniel Defense facility near Savannah, Georgia.”
Check out the Video interview with Joe that accompanies my article submitted to TheTruthAboutGuns.com. Particularly listen close to the final quip from Joe…
This is NOT a complaint or brag, just an observation. Each of these articles has an associated video. Some of the videos are from interviews with manufacturers or hosts for hunting trips. Others record yours truly and/or Frances (my lovely assistant and wife) discussing a product and then using said product.
During this waiting period, I thought it might be good to share the videos, with a brief introduction. I’ll post a link to the full articles at TTAG as soon as they appear.
Today’s offering involves the third Daniel Defense firearm that I was sent to review – this time, their AR-platform DD5V5 rifle.
Frances and I were allowed to again spend time on the Government Training Institute‘s ‘level range’. There we tested the accuracy of the DD5V5, coupled with the Hornady ammunition sent to us by Joe Marler of Daniel Defense and Neal Emery of Hornady; during our workup we fired at targets ranging from 100 yards to >700 yards. Our accuracy at the longest distances averaged ~95%.
On Sunday, March 1st, Frances and I head to the Government Training Institute‘s facilities in Barnwell, South Carolina. (No, we are NOT going there for the Presidential Primary!) Chris Lux and the other folks at GTI have given us permission to bring a ton-of-stuff out to review on their ranges.
“What ‘ton-of-stuff’ is being lugged to GTI for reviews?”
Our design is to ‘walk’ the rifles out to target distances of up to 700 yards. Cannot wait to shoot all of the firearms, and watch Frances do the same. I am also pumped to see how the firearms, Tuffpak, bench, fieldrest and ear protection perform.
Yes, you are correct. A magical weekend of shooting sh** is about to happen for the Arnolds!
Stay tuned for a ‘ton’ of review articles at TheTruthAboutGuns.com, complete with photographs and videos of each of the products being reviewed!
(Please excuse the plastic. There aren’t corpses, we’re just having some painting done in my trophy room/office.)
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.
Dan Z Editor of TheTruthAboutGuns.com is pumping out Frances’ and my video interviews from the DSC Convention. The next one is already up and is with Josh Cluff of H-S Precision. Check it out if you love accurate, long-range shooting and hunting rifles! You can see the article here.
My newest review is now available at TheTruthAboutGuns.com. I was given the opportunity to review another of MG Arms’ wonderful rifles. This time it was their Ultra-Light model in 7mm-08 Remington. You can check out my data and conclusions here.
