Rank #1: The Everyday Sniper Episode 138 Philip Velayo Fundamental Talk
The Everyday Sniper Episode 138 Philip Velayo Fundamental Talk
Great Interview with Phil Velayo of Gunwerks, USMC Scout Sniper Instructor, Competition Shooter, and Fundamentalist. We breakdown rifle set up, talk a lot about stocks and your length of pull adjustment.
How the length of pull and rifle set up dictates so much how well we shoot. It goes from the back of the rifle to the scope, to the bolt and trigger. This is an important part of starting out with your precision rifle. Lots and lots of knowledge bombs dropped on the listeners and some golden nuggets mixed in.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 197, True Range Zero, User Comments
In this episode, I talk about your True Range Zero and what the end-user can do to fix issues with software to help fine-tune your truing. With a true range zero a group that is just .1 mils above center moves your group to 150 yards in terms of how the computer looks at it. So it's important to understand these variations.
Talking Gun Control a tiny bit, all about the messaging we are being attacked with. Make sure you do your part.
Some singing, a little stairway, and random musings. Finally, we end with User Comments from the PodBean App. Keep the comments coming we all enjoy them. Thanks for listening and being a part of the Everyday Sniper Podcast

The Everyday Sniper Episode 177 Phil Velayo SHC After Action
Great Episode here with top shooter, USMC Scout Sniper Instructor and Precision Rifle Instructor Phil Velayo on the line. Phil came in second place at the Sniper's Hide Cup with his partner Beau, so his perspective is super important to all.
We breakdown some of the stages and well as the main elements to executing a great match finish. Getting Phil's perspective all all this adds some much to the Everyday Sniper Podcast. He gets it on a level most don't consider.
We cover a wide range of topics from Wind to Trajectory and including the Fundamentals of Marksmanship. This should sound familiar. If you want to meet Phil, he is the lead instructor for Gunwerks, and he attends a ton of NRL and PRS matches out West here.
Thanks to all for listening, thanks for sharing and be sure to comment.I also want to thank Phil again for taking time out during a busy week of training.

Welcome to the Everyday Sniper Podcast, just Frank in this episode, and I am getting back into the saddle of talking Precision Rifle. In this episode, I go over rifle set up and continue the discussion started by Philip V and myself from the last episode. I put up two online training lessons up in the forum regarding rifle set up with a bit more focus on how the stock controls scope set up. It's an odd week for me, I have some travel happening, and just coming off the interview podcasts it feels weird to me. But I appreciate everyone commenting, sharing and being a part of the Everyday Sniper.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 189 Gathering Talk, Plus Optics, Barrels and Training
After having my computer die a second time, I had to upgrade my equipment so that put me behind the Eight Ball for a few days. Wanted to talk about the Gathering and some high points from the event. A couple in no particular order"
- The Attendance
- The Range Day
- The Dinner
- The Sponsors
- The New Products
I talk so optics, holding over with the reticle and distortions that might be involved and whether we can resolve those issues on target. Is it a big enough problem to address?
John Baker and TacommHQ have a great new barrel system and his work in this space I feel is showing a lot of promise. Disturbing the Harmonic resonance of the barrel during firing may yield a bunch of benefits that were overlooked for so many years.Again, thanks to the big-name sponsors for the Gathering, I know there was more, but I only have a partial list in front of me. So thanks to Leupold, Vortex, Applied Ballistics, MHSA, and all the others who donated or attended the Gathering Event in Denver.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 178 Joel Wise Interview Precision Rifle Network
We just finished our June MHSA Precision Rifle class and Joel Wise of the Precision Rifle Network was a student in the class. So being a media guy in the gun industry I thought we would do a podcast about the Class.
Joel is the main video guy for the Precision Rifle Series, and does a lot of content and filming for Shannon Kay and the PRS. He has a great perspective on the industry seeing it from many angles.The conversation mainly focuses on our class and Joel's experience during the class but we also go off on a few tangents as I am one to do.We got interrupted twice with scam phones calls as I never remember to put my phone in AirPlane Mode when I am recording podcasts from the phone. But aside from the two small interruptions I think this a great interview.
Thanks to Joel for Attending the MHSA Precision Rifle Class, and being a part of the Everyday Sniper Podcast.Thanks to all the listeners and those who share and comment in the Podbean App. Really appreciate ya all

The Everyday Sniper Episode 149 Ssgt Keenan of the US Army Interview
Special Interview today with Ssgt Keenan of the US Army. A fan of the Everyday Sniper, he reached out and spoke to Mike at MHSA and the rest is recorded.
We cover some of the modern differences between competing and being an active duty Sniper. This is really a unique interview that gives you a microscopic look at the differences between the military and civilian shooter. The crossover is real, how it materialize is really the only difference.
I really appreciate the Army gave us the clearance to discuss the topics we discussed. It's not an officially sanctioned discussion but we did clear it. We want to honor our warfighters and there is a no bigger honor than having the ability to talk to active duty soldiers.
Thanks to Ruben Keenan for taking his Sunday morning off to call into the podcast.

The Everyday Sniper Episode 179 My Celebrity Train Wreck MOA Rant
Frank here with the Everyday Sniper and Sniper's Hide, in this pre-4th of July episode I go on a nice rant regarding the Mil vs MOA debate. Seems like this thing won't go away anytime soon as guys continue to stir this punch bowl. The debate is silly, there is defined disciplines that work with MOA, in our game it's Mils all the way. It's easier, it's efficient and it makes communicating that much better.If you are an MOA shooter I feel sad for you, it's a terrible life to live in today's world. So if you dig MOA adjusted scopes, let me know what a jerk I am. I follow up with a few other tirades, but nothing too crazy.Thanks for listening, thanks for sharing, thanks for being a part of the Everyday Sniper Podcast. Cheers,

Rank #18: The Everyday Sniper Episode 191 Fundamental Breakdown, Elements vs FoM
The Everyday Sniper Episode 191 Fundamental Breakdown, Elements vs FoM
I was looking over some old military marksmanship manuals, not so much for the mistakes, but to see where things evolved from the Elements of a good shooting position to the fundamentals of marksmanship. And in thinking about the different techniques we use for shooting the various disciplines we engage in, how the fundamentals and the elements of a good position apply. We can free recoil a rifle and still engage in the fundamentals of marksmanship. We can also buy a hit by using the weapon system to balance our position and mask some of the errors induced by our poor fundamentals. As an example, a heavy class benchrest shooter can do a lot to eliminate as much as the shooter as possible. Others attempt to do the same thing in the field. Get a system or supporting device that masks the shooters or minimizes their influence on the shot. It's a practical exercise to look at each of these fundamentals and what we can do to minimize their influence using the gear.
It really comes down to education, knowing what fundamental controls what and how the rifle system marries to that fundamental. I talk Accuracy and Precision, we all know the rifle system can have a bearing on both. As will the shooter and his or her fundamentals when it comes to executing the firing task.
Hopefully, this episode of the Everyday Sniper makes you think about all there elements.

Rank #19: The Everyday Sniper Episode 174 My Rant on LE Equipment
The Everyday Sniper Episode 174 My Rant on LE Equipment
Back from Alaska, this is my June After Action Report. The Civvy classes we did were excellent. No equipment issues I can recall, nobody needed to default the SH Edition APO Rifle. But we also did an LE class and that is completely different story.This was not about the shooters, but their equipment that went back to the 1990s. In my mind this is totally unacceptable for guys who work the harsh wilds of Alaska. Having a working rifle and optic that is older than most computers is just wrong. The conditions in this part of the country can kill equipment in seconds. It's important to have the right tools for the job. Hopefully this can light a fire under the departments to step up.Also thanks to David for guiding me on my World's Most Successful Bigfoot Hunt.
Quals, I think quals and standards are very useful, and we need to recognize the benefit of having a very good qual system in place to test standards.
