I will be competing in the Pecos Run and Gun in the Sun next weekend, and figured I’d post some video of some of my practice for it. It’s a 2-gun match (rifle and pistol) with rifle shooting out to 400 yards and between 6 and 7 miles of running. I’m using a Ballester Molina pistol, Swiss Gewehr 1911 rifle, and a cool original Swiss ammo bandolier provided by Liberty Tree Collectors. I expect the match will be grueling and miserable, but fun when I’m finished – and my goal is the be the fastest bolt-action competitor. I will have some commentary and followup on Forgotten Weapons, and the match video will be a segment in an upcoming episode of InRange TV.
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
