2017 45th Annual Firearms Industry Super Shoot

Hello everyone! During the last week in May, I had the opportunity to shoot my first ever Super Shoot along with our Founder and Chief Technical Consultant Walt Berger. I had a great time meeting many fellow shooters and being able to put a lot of faces with so many of the voices that I hear while helping to answer the Berger Tech Line, and I'm thankful for having the opportunity to shoot with you!

2016 Canadian Fullbore Championships

When I retired from the Army Marksmanship Unit, one of my main goals (besides moving, buying a house, getting the kids settled in a new school, working on the new house, making sure the Wife was happy, starting a new job, etc.) was to, once again, compete as a shooter. My last 13 years at the Army Marksmanship Unit were spent as the head coach. I learned early on that you cannot serve two masters; my coaching duties had priority, so I stopped competing in 2004. When I joined the Berger Bullets team, I was excited to find out that my boss, Eric Stecker, wanted [...]

2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition

  The 2016 K&M Precision Rifle Competition was held on May 27 - 29 in Finger, TN at the K&M Precision Rifle Training Shooting Complex. I had never been to K&M but knew I could expect excellence from the owner Shannon Kay. What makes K&M unique is it was purpose built for precision rifle training and competitive events from the ground up. The current range consists of more than 80 acres with a very recent acquisition of an additional 112 adjacent acres. On Friday, the range offered shooters an open range day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Steel targets were set out every 100 [...]

2016 Cactus Classic

The Cactus Classic took place on March 19-20, 2016 at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Phoenix, AZ. This year's match had a great turnout with 138 total shooters, 3 of which were junior shooters. The Cactus had a full 5 days of practice, the Monday through Friday before the match. During this week we got to see a lot of familiar faces from last year as well as many new faces. For the most part, the days were full of great weather with normal Ben Avery conditions, meaning a bit of wind here and there. Thursday and Friday both had good conditions in comparison [...]

Phoenix weather forecasts are usually pretty boring, but we had some variety this year. Just a few days [...]

2014 F-Class National Championships

By Michelle Gallagher Welcome to Phoenix! It's amazing how so many months of preparation can disappear in what feels like the blink of an eye. But that's exactly what happened at the 2014 F-Class Nationals in Phoenix, AZ, when months of load testing, training and wind reading skills were put to the test during an unseasonably warm week in October. We were excited to see 175 shooters come from around the US and Canada, and even one all the way from Australia! Shooters and hospitality tents along the 1000 yd line. The week started with a Long Range Regional on the [...]

Firecracker 4800

By Michelle Gallagher Nancy Tompkins shooting. Smallbore shooters use personal windmills (top right corner) to help determine wind speed and direction. *Photo courtesy of Katelyn Hensley. My first rifle was a .22 Chipmunk when I was 7 years old. My mom believed that smallbore is the best way to learn the basic techniques of shooting – sight alignment, trigger control, natural point of aim, etc. I think she’s right. So my sister and I shot smallbore for years before we ever picked up high power rifles. Fast forward to 2014. I’m a high power shooter through and through, and haven’t shot a .22 [...]
