The Everyday Sniper Podcast: Accuracy International Scott Siegmund
Today on the Everyday Sniper Podcast we have Scott Siegmund of Accuracy International. This week AI announced the New AI ATX Competition rifle.
We were out at the range and talked about the ATX rifle and how it grew out of the Accuracy International AT/AX generations. It's a great conversation.
The rifles are simply amazing to shoot, I loved every round. Once you realize you can tune the rifle , the recoil is in in a straight and hardly there. They just sit, and reply.
Thanks to all the Team AI Guys that came out, Matt, Rhett, and JR it was a ton of fun, hanging out, shooting, hitting stuff, including the house cat at 900 yards. (Steel, not real) Safe trip home.
Thanks for listening thanks, for sharing and thanks for being a part of the Everyday Sniper.

Everything is coming up Roses
Wow what a crazy week the country is having. This is nuts on so many levels I feel the need to address some of the political fallout as it has a bearing on the sniper's hide website.
We have been updating the Sniper's Hide website since March. We are in the final phases of the work and during the construction we are changing the way we look at politics. Tensions are high right now so we are compartmentalizing the posts so not to create the illusion we are a political website.
We see the purge happening on other social media platforms and I fully expect it to spill over to the gun community. We have to watch out for each other, the spin is out of control.
Because this affects our 2nd Amendment rights, we can't ignore it, instead I want listeners to be smart about it, Stay off the Skyline, protect yourself at all times.

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: Jacob Bynum Rifles Only Competition Talk
Welcome to the Everyday Sniper Podcast, in this episode, I am on the phone with Jacob Bynum of Rifles Only, the originator of all this shit we are talking about.
In this episode, pre New Years', trying to wash the stink away from 2020. We talk:
- Assassin's Way
- Rimfire Academy
- New Series Talk
- Competitions in General
- History Lessons
Thanks to Jacob for stopping by and filling us in about Assassin's Way. The event will be postponed due to Covid restrictions. So 2022 will be the new timeline for that event.
Then we get into nostalgia talking about events in past. We talk about stage planning, execution, where things are going, where things are going.
Lots of fun talking to Jacob, because we hung around each other so long the conversation flows nice.
Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing, and thanks for being a part of the Everyday Sniper.

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: Aaron Mikesell Allterra Arms
This is a really special episode revolving around Gain Twist Barrels. Aaron Mikesell of Allterra Arms reached out to me regarding my previous podcasts concerning Gain Twist Barrels. After hearing the discussions on the Everyday Sniper Podcast Allterra Arms decided to look into this Vudoo.
The results are in keeping with my own, Aaron and I go over the pros of using a Gain Twist Barrel and when they looked at these, they were sold.
I really appreciate Aaron coming on the podcast to talk about their findings. In fact, I love that they took the information I was spouting, tried it for themselves, and found the results credible. This is awesome.
If want a deep dive into Gain Twist Barrels, listen to this episode. In my mind it proves we can mechanically fix a lot of things people obsess over with software.
Thanks for sharing, Thanks for listening, thanks for Commenting,

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: Resolution Broken, Drama too fun to Ignore
Welcome to the Everyday Sniper Podcast, I'm Frank from Sniper's Hide your Hostess with the Mostest. In this episode, we are discussing Sniper's Hide Site Upgrades.
We are in the middle of a big site-wide upgrade to the forums. While this often creates drama it's nowhere near the drama of the Series is currently engaged in because of their Finale.
We have to mention it, too big, too bold, too in your face.
How silly can you be, using a Technicality to strip a winner of his crown based on a technicality. This is how you create drama.
But a fun little episode to get a few bloods boiling before the holiday.
Merry Christmas, All,
Sean - Tippy Toe, Tippy Toe... Ha!

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: Bridging Training and Competitions
This is a hard episode for me to define presently. I spent a day this week with Chris Way who has the Kraft YT channel and is shooting Assassins Way. Chris a newish precision rifle competitor who is local to me and very scientific in his approach to competition and training. Chris created a drill that tests a shooter at different positions on a standardized target in an attempt to record data.
Each shooter is different, so seeing how they perform can give us valuable information when it comes to both teaching and learning precision rifle shooting. I like the way Chris approaches this, so try his drill and post the results on SH.
Kraft Data Drive Thread
I think the listeners will find a few nice nuggets in this episode. Meeting with new people opens up your perspectives on things. It forces you to change your way of thinking, which is a good thing.

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: What is the Standard, CR2 Shooting Solutions
Today on the Podcast we have Chris Rance and Chris Roberts of CR2 Shooting Solutions. We have a great discussion on teaching students and working on a standard that all can relate too.
What would be your standard when it comes precision rifle instruction. What skills sets do you want to walk away with and be able to repeat after the course without the aid of reference.
I think with both Chris's we have hit on a question that should be the first one asked. What am I looking to get out of a precision rifle course. what are my takeaways for learning.
We are trying to be on the same page, and I look forward to working with CR2 Shooting Solutions in 2021.
Thanks for listening, commenting and sharing, thanks to both Chris Rance and Chris Roberts for an awesome discussion.

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: Sick Day Episode, Tippy Toe
I am at home sick, maybe covid, maybe the flu, totally nothing but annoying. So I decided to read the user comments and in doing so I have to break my own rules.
The comments crossed into my new year's resolution so I had to break it, but I metered my breaks.
Thanks to all the listeners who commented and who respond in the Podbean app.
Nothing crazy to it, but go on my normal Frank Rants

The Everyday Sniper Podcast: New Years Eve Resolutions 2021
Feels like a holiday to me, 2020 cannot end quickly enough so I am jumping ahead to 2021. I am putting out my New Years' Eve Resolutions for the new season.
Yesterday was Friday the 13th so I was being reflective on my mental well being so I decided to put together my resolution. My three choices for them are:
- Turn on SD, CE, & AJ
- Add a Level to all my Rifles to not to be different
- Stop hurting competition shooters' feelings because I am no longer interested in their idea of the sport
Also, I talk about the ELR shooting with James
The Michael Bane show with Mike Bush and Vudoo
and Finally my life fundamentals for all those listening.
Thanks for listening thanks for sharing thanks for being a part of the everyday sniper podcast.
