Underwater Target Practice

Our favorite unbiased media source Russia Today has released this footage of Russian Special Operations Forces utilizing their underwater weaponry in Sevastopol Bay. We must say this appears to be the most effective underwater defense known to man. Clearly, the switch over from the APS underwater Rifle to the ADS hasn't taken full effect. The SPP-1 Pistol has an effective range of 55 feet at a depth of 15 inches, while the rifle will hit a target at nearly 100 feet with the same depth.

Armilite Sponsors University of Florida 3-Gun Team

Armalite is proud to announce its addition of the University of Florida 3-Gun Team to its Ambassador Program for the 2015 shooting season. Founded by four members of the Gator Pistol Team in mid-2014, the University of Florida 3-Gun Team competes in multi-gun and pistol matches throughout the East Coast. They are a fully functioning club with weekly practices at the Gainesville Target Range. Shortly after banding together, the team made a splash on the 3-gun circuit with several members placing in the Top 5 in their division in major matches. 

The 2015 team members are: Evan Doss (Captain), James Nguyen, Jeff Simons, Justin Stephens and Steven Bottcher (Coach). The team currently has major matches scheduled in Florida, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Alabama, Virginia, West  The University of Florida Gators 3-Gun Team was chosen as Ambassadors of Armalite because of their goal to generate awareness of the shooting sports among young shooters, educate the public on firearm safety and grow the sport by creating a collegiate 3-gun series for college aged “Armalite is honored to be on the leading edge of the introduction of 3-gun at the collegiate level,” said Tommy Thacker, President of Armalite. “This partnership shows that we are dedicated to growing the sport across all levels of competition. We are hoping that this team will help educate other schools and bring more shooting programs to the forefront of the programs.”

The Gators will be using Armalite’s M153GN18 rifles this season. Be sure to look for these guys on a range or at an event year you!

Glock 43 V. M&P Shield

When I look for scientific reviews of  the best possible pocket pistol, I always turn Youtube channels for a thorough comparison. MrGunsnGear has provided just that by showing off the new Glock 43 in contrast to the previously released Smith & Wession M&P Shield. As he notes he doesn't normally do comparison videos, but clearly the Mr. Wizard in him took over and he just had to do it. Kudos to him for doing what will inevitably be done and discussed ad naueam.
