Kevin, Cory and I met up with some of the guys from Remington Defense this week out at Tier One Group for some photo and video shoots. It’s tough to get up early and spend a whole day shooting the latest and greatest weapons out there. I got lots and lots of pics and will be posting some along with background stories over the next week or two.
On a related note, we got to recon the facility as part of the planning for the 2010 Silencer Shoot. Wow, it’s going to be amazing, mark your calendars now- October 8, 9, 10.
We got to do a lot of shooting. Everything from .22′s to the belt-fed 240 to some of Remington’s new MSR’s in .338, and everything in between.
Here’s Cory putting a few rounds downrange with a Remington ACR, decked out in a full Crye setup. We spent most of our time on the 300 yard range and in the shoot houses. At the close end of the 300 yard range, there’s a stack of connex trailers to simulate buildings for breaching and sniping operations… well, you haven’t lived until someone rips off a belt with an M240 [unsuppressed] inside the connex. I think my fillings are loose.
At one point on Wednesday, Kevin commandeered a hummer and took Cory shooting…
