    Guns & Grub 7 – How to shoot better positional shots and Sushi

    enJune 09, 2024

    Podcast Summary

    • Podcast discussion on sushi and bipodsDespite initial reservations, the hosts enjoyed sushi and reflected on the significance of D-Day anniversary. They also compared MDT Skypod and Atlas bipods, each with unique advantages in the shooting community.

      The hosts of the podcast had an unexpected enjoyable experience with sushi, despite past reservations, and they discussed the significance of the 80th anniversary of D-Day and paid tribute to the brave soldiers who served. The hosts also shared their opinions on different types of bipods for shooting, specifically comparing the MDT Skypod and Atlas bipods. The MDT Skypod, known for its durability and ease of deployment, is popular in the western US, while the Atlas bipod is favored for its simplicity and stability. Both bipods have their merits and are widely used in the shooting community.

    • Gunwerks bipodThe Gunwerks bipod offers a balance of affordability, lightweight design, and functionality for precision rifle shooters, but has a learning curve for adjusting height due to its different button functions compared to other bipods.

      The new Gunwerks bipod offers a more natural hand position for deployment, but has a learning curve for adjusting the height due to its different button functions compared to the Atlas and MDT bipods. The Gunwerks bipod is also significantly lighter and more affordable than the Skypod, while still maintaining a solid and high-quality feel. The quick-deploy legs and infinite extension collar provide versatility and a solid lock-up. However, the single-leg button mechanism may require adjusting both legs to maintain rifle stability when deploying. Overall, the Gunwerks bipod offers a balance of affordability, lightweight design, and functionality for precision rifle shooters.

    • Gunwerks bipodThe Gunwerks bipod provides excellent height adjustability, quick deployment, and a unique mounting mechanism, making it a valuable addition to any rifle setup, especially for hunters. Its carbon fiber construction, changeable feet, and affordable price make it a standout choice for functionality, elegance, and affordability.

      The new Gunwerks bipod offers excellent height adjustability, quick deployment, and a unique mounting mechanism, making it a valuable addition to any rifle setup, especially for hunters. Despite being less expensive than some high-end hunting rigs, it still delivers impressive performance and design. The bipod's carbon fiber construction and changeable feet add to its appeal, making it a worthy investment for those seeking functionality, elegance, and affordability. The adjustable feet and simple mounting system set it apart from competitors, making it a standout choice for shooters and hunters alike.

    • Long-range shooting limitations of Athlon scopesAthlon scopes may not meet the highest precision demands for long-range shooting due to glass quality and thermal optic limitations, but they perform well for closer distances and lower-precision applications.

      While the Athlon scopes are functional for long-range shooting, their glass quality may not be sufficient for the highest precision demands, particularly at 1000 yards. For example, during a recent shooting session, the speaker found it challenging to define target edges and spot misses with the thermal optic, even at 500 yards. However, at closer distances and for lower-precision applications, these scopes perform well. The speaker also noted that the thermal optic, while high-end, struggled with consistency and resolution at longer distances. Despite these limitations, the speaker expressed appreciation for the opportunity to review the scopes and acknowledged their value as tools for specific shooting applications.

    • Shooter's influence on rifle systemMinimizing the shooter's impact on the rifle system improves shooting accuracy. Natural positioning, proper alignment, and stability are key factors.

      Improving shooting accuracy involves minimizing the impact of the shooter on the rifle system. While night vision and thermal sights can enhance shooting capabilities, they also add complexity and potential errors. For optimal accuracy, the rifle should be mounted in a stationary position, and the shooter should aim to eliminate their influence on the system. This includes maintaining a natural and comfortable position, keeping the rifle properly aligned with the body, and avoiding unnecessary movements. Additionally, the shape of rifle stocks, such as the curvature of butt pads, can impact the shooter's ability to maintain a stable position. Overall, mastering shooting fundamentals requires a deep understanding of the interplay between the rifle, ammunition, and the shooter.

    • Rifle positioningProper rifle positioning against the body can enhance shooting accuracy and comfort by maximizing contact with the buttstock and midline alignment, reducing unwanted movement and improving recoil absorption.

      Optimizing the position of a rifle against the body can significantly improve shooting accuracy and comfort. This includes ensuring the buttstock is flat against the shooter's body for maximum contact and surface area, as well as positioning the rifle as close to the midline of the body as possible. This reduces unwanted movement and helps the body absorb recoil more effectively. Additionally, many shooters modify their stocks or padding to achieve a more comfortable and stable shooting position. Overall, the connection between the shooter's body position and rifle setup is crucial for achieving consistent and accurate shots.

    • Celebrity experience, Sushi, RiflesThe group experienced being treated like celebrities in Korea, tried sushi from Osaka, and discussed different types of sushi and rifles, including positional shooting and precision rifle equipment. They also touched upon the importance of field of view in scopes and the trade-offs involved.

      The group had an interesting experience in Korea where they were treated like celebrities due to their tall white stature. They also tried sushi from Osaka and had a discussion about different types of sushi, including California rolls. The group also talked about rifles, positional shooting, and precision rifle stuff, including bipods. They received questions from their audiences on various topics, including the comparison of California rolls to California guns and the discussion of a specific scope. The group also mentioned their experiences with different scopes and the importance of field of view in scopes, but with trade-offs. The discussion also touched upon the idea that bigger field of view may lead to a bigger exit pupil, which could result in losing usable light if the exit pupil is larger than the actual pupil. The group also mentioned that in western matches, the field of view matters. Overall, the conversation was a mix of various topics, including cultural experiences, food, and shooting equipment.

    • Field of view vs MagnificationA larger field of view in a rifle scope improves target acquisition in complex environments by allowing for quicker scanning and more information to be visible, while higher magnification may limit the field of view and offer more detail.

      A larger field of view in a rifle scope can significantly improve target acquisition, especially in complex environments where distinguishing targets from their surroundings can be challenging. This is because a larger field of view allows for quicker scanning and more information to be visible without having to constantly zoom in and out. While higher magnification may offer more detail, it can limit the field of view, making it less beneficial for target acquisition. Ultimately, the decision between a scope with a larger field of view and one with higher magnification depends on the specific shooting scenario and personal preference.

    • Firearm LawsUnderstanding the specific laws in your area regarding carrying a firearm, staying informed about changes, and seeking legal advice when necessary are crucial for responsible firearm ownership

      Importance of understanding the legal aspects of carrying a firearm. The guests emphasized the need for knowing the specific laws in your area, as they can vary greatly. They also discussed the importance of staying informed about changes to these laws and the potential consequences of carrying without proper permits or training. Additionally, they highlighted the value of seeking legal advice when necessary, especially in the aftermath of a self-defense situation. Overall, the conversation underscored the importance of being prepared, knowledgeable, and responsible when it comes to carrying a firearm.
