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!

MDS Episode #0018: What it means to be a Volunteer

In this episode Caylen and Phil build on the previous; going a bit deeper into their philosophy on the mindset of the sniper and the shooter. This time they dig into what it means to be a volunteer, and all the responsibility that comes with being a member of a volunteer unit. The conversation moves into touching on ego, what it is, and the cop out of telling someone to put their ego aside without fully understanding it’s meaning and how it affects performance.

MDS Episode #0014: Scott Satterlee and Hand Loading

You asked about hand loading, so we listened! We have a special guest on the podcast who needs no introduction in the precision shooting world, Mr. Scott Satterlee. Scott is a renowned handloading “tinkerer”, and we wanted to go straight to the source for the latest information regarding handloading. Scott takes us through his process of brass preparation, when to trim and anneal cases, and his process for developing the load. There are mountains of information in this episode, so have a pen and paper handy! We’re really excited to have this opportunity to talk with Scott and to give you an opportunity to hear what he’s got to say. If you’re looking for more information on this, check out the link below to a recent article that Scott contributed to on the effects of bullet jump and accuracy written by the guys at the Precision Rifle Blog and Mark Gordon of Short Action Customs. We sincerely hope that this helps streamline your reloading process, spending less time at the bench and more time on the range.

Caylen flies solo on this episode answering some listener questions. Before he dives in, he talks about the new online training courses coming together, a little deeper look into what it means to have “mindfulness behind the rifle,” and the benefits of a morning routine setting the precedence for your day. The Q&A was a great spread of questions, ranging from barrels, being wary of the man who only owns one rifle, reticles, external ballistics questions, and rifle fit. Caylen wraps it up talking about the importance of keeping a shooter’s journal and the impact it can have on your training progression.
