Together with InRange TV we brought their Desert Brutality 2-gun shooting match to Finland. What sets this match apart from other dynamic shooting sports is the physical challenge, which is a major part of each stage. In a similar fashion with Biathlon, shooting skill alone won't guarantee success.
Of the six stages shot during two days of Finnish Brutality, this video presents the first one. At the sound of the start buzzer the shooter was to drag 100 pounds of kettle bells over a fault line, pick up their rifle and go cone to cone to shoot a metal target at 100 yards from a prone position. After a mandatory standing shot with the rifle from the last cone, after which the shooter would dash closer and switch to a pistol to handle the final part of the stage. The clock is ticking and the heart is pounding for sure!
These stages are good opportunities to test functionality of your gear and learn valuable lessons. Check out how Ian (of Forgotten Weapons fame) and Karl themselves tackled the stage they had devised. Being in Finland, the natural weapon of choice was a Sako M92S, a civilian version of the RK95, and a plastic-fantastic Glock 17. Are you ready? Standby...
Here we go, X-mas is right around the corner!
Commercial bloodsuckers start exploiting the holiday season each year a couple of days earlier compared to last year, but snowfall comes later and later while summers are getting hot even above 60th parallel north. Is something going on? Obviously yes, and this is a race where we won't be beaten.
Linear changes are for cotton panty -wearing coffee sniffers, so we unleashed our hidden Credible Hulk and came up with a snowball effect: from now on our X-mas marketing is rescheduled to begin earlier and earlier at the rate of the Fibonacci sequence: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 and so on.
As a result, the wait for X-mas of the year 2038 should have begun 10,946 days early so it's high time to dig out your jingle bells and while we're at it, might as well handle the year 2018 along. Should you prepare for the winter of 2038 with shorts and sun lotion or stockpile canned food and ammo? Damned if we know, but it's best to be prepared.
There are many ways to field-test equipment. Years ago we dived into less conventional means, which may appear completely out of line and reason to some.
The operation wasn't exactly a great success, but we're glad no-one died out there.
