Camp Perry Bullseye

It’s the challenge of traditional Bullseye shooting that brings nearly a thousand competitors to Camp Perry, Ohio. The targets are set at 25 and 50 yards. The shooting position is standing and firing one-handed in slow fire, timed fire, and rapid fire. The best will claim the National Match Trophies and receive the President’s 100 Tab. Plus, The Sub Gun that replaced the Thompson. The M-3 was built by a car company and looked like something from the garage. The Grease Gun is now one of History’s Guns. And the Gap Grind Pro and Amateur Precision Rifle Match is bringing more new shooters into the challenge of long-range rifle competition.

The name is synonymous with the oldest and most prestigious annual trophy matches in our nation’s history. And in a place that’s renowned for what might be the most challenging service rifle matches, the sport of precision pistol is no less important, no less challenging, and no less respected. The Civilian Marksmanship Program has invited traditional pistol shooters to Camp Perry Ohio, to compete in the National Trophy Pistol Matches. One look and you know. The stance, the intense concentration, and of course, the one-handed grip. It’s all unmistakable as the game of Bullseye Pistol. But this is Camp Perry. And here at the CMP National Matches, when it comes to pistol, there is no other game.

History’s Guns: Grease Gun

40-13-3At the beginning of WWII, the United States saw the obvious advantage in arming its troops with a small, full auto, pistol caliber firearm that could be mass produced cheaply and quickly. They named it the M3 Submachine Gun, but for a generation of young men more accustomed to working on cars than fighting the Nazis, it looked like something very different. The M3 Grease Gun is now one of History’s Guns.

Precision Rifle Competition is easily one of the fastest-growing of the shooting sports and the largest match on the Precision Rifle calendar is aimed at bringing in even more new shooters, it’s The Bushnell GAP Grind at K and M Precision.

AGM Global Vision Thermal Scopes

40-13-8From AGM Global Vision, this is the rattler TS19-256. TS is Thermal Scope, the 19 is the objective lens and the 256 is the thermal resolution. This is the TS35-640, 35 is a greater objective lens and stronger thermal resolution. Both use the latest infrared imaging technology to reveal temperature variations in all objects, in all light conditions. Both are water dust and sand proof, and both have digital reticules that can be zeroed to your rifle. Both are powered by internal CR123 batteries, or can be powered by an external power source through the USB-C interface port. Both capture video and still images, and both have a stadia metric range finder. That means the device can measure an object of known size and estimate distance. Both have dual scene modes, either jungle or recognition. And both have four viewing modes, red as hot, white as hot, black as hot, and my favorite, fusion, like Predator, the movie. The two differences here, resolution and usable observation distance, how far can the scopes see heat. Well, the Rattler TS19-256 is good to 950 meters, The TS35-640 that’s good to 1750 meters. Obviously, there is a lot of technology here, and that isn’t free, but it might be less than you’d expect. The Rattler TS19-256 is $1,600, the TS35-640 is just under $4,200.
