MDS Episode #0031: The Summit, being busted on bears, and into the future!

Caylen and Phil are back on the podcast doing a recap conversation on the last couple weeks of activity at Modern Day Sniper. Saying that they’ve had a lot going on is an understatement, and the conversation starts off talking about a recap of the Modern Day Rifleman Virtual Summit and extending thanks to everyone involved. The guys cover some points on positional shooting from our last PR 101 course,  some of Phil’s learning points from their bear hunting trip last week and a discussion on long range hunting ethics. The guys wrap up the conversation by letting some of their upcoming plans out of the bag.

MDS Episode #0030 Army Sniper Series Part 1

In this episode we brought on special guests from the Army Sniper community, Christopher Roberts and Christopher Rance. Both Roberts and Rance have spent some time not only as Snipers but as instructors at the US Army Sniper School in Fort Benning, GA. At Modern Day Sniper, we want to ensure the term "Modern Day Sniper" doesn't just revolve around what "Caylen and Phil" are up to, but to ensure all of our audience understands that being a Modern Day Sniper is a mindset that we are always learning and always evolving to be as proficient as we can in how we employ our long range precision rifle system, regardless of application. Obviously, for military snipers, it's the development on how to be as proficient and lethal on the battlefield as we can be.

For the longest time we've wanted our Army counter-parts to talk about their community and some of the differences of being employed as a Sniper in the Army versus as a Marine Scout Sniper. We've decided we wanted to make this a series, to ensure those that are listening are getting the full understanding of the Army side of the house, from their pipeline, to how their employed, their weapon systems and what are some curriculum differences between their program and the Marine Scout Sniper program. We hope you enjoy this series and please let us know if you have any questions about the Army Sniper program in the comments for the next podcast for us to answer.

Don't forget to grab your free pass to the Modern Day Rifleman Virtual Summit. Those interviews will be live from Sept 28 thru Oct 2. But if you want all those interviews immediately and for a life time access, we recommend checking out upgrading to the All Access pass. Thanks for listening and keep your face on the gun!

MDS Episode #0024: Caylen and Phil Back At It

Caylen and Phil are back at it after a brief hiatus. This was an awesome episode of catch-up conversation and diving deep into some great topics. With the training season back into full swing, they talk about what it means to be a good student and the process of learning, which then rolls into what they define as a bad shooter, a good shooter, and what separates those from a phenomenal shooter. The pair discusses other topics such as what it means to develop a standard, and how those standards are missing the mark in places around the community. They round up the conversations discussing what “line of white” means regarding the aiming process, and the new release of the Modern Day Sniper Fundamentals of Marksmanship course at the Online Schoolhouse.

MDS Episode #0023: Jacob Bynum and Assassin’s Way

After an unpleasant hiatus from our microphones (we sincerely apologize) we’re back at with an interview with Jacob Bynum, the creator of the future Assassin’s Way rifle match, entertaining questions from a Facebook Live question and answer session. Although things went well with the content and the questions, our technology skills need some work and you can expect a better experience next go-round. In the end, Jacob answered a lot of questions; hypothetical, by third-party, and live feed via our Facebook Live event. Thanks to everyone for listening, and please reach out to Jacob direct if you have any questions!

MDS Episode #0022: We host Ryan Cleckner of Gun University

We had a great opportunity to get to know Ryan Cleckner in this episode. Caylen and Ryan explore Ryan’s path as a US Army Ranger sniper and how he progressed within that community. Ryan talks about how he got himself into the Army’s sniper program and how the lessons he learned as a young Ranger translate to his career today as a firearms attorney and his newly established online venture, Gun University. We enjoyed getting to know Ryan, and you can be sure to hear more from him in the future!
