Bismark of the Military Aviation History channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Bis18marck70 was filming in Switzerland, and asked me if I could get him on the range and teach him to shoot. How could I refuse such a request from a Top Bloke like himself? And it gives me an opportunity to illustrate how I train a novice (although I’m not normally constrained by having to film…)
Since he’d never shot before, we discussed the four marksmanship principles and started him off at 300m with my 7.62×51 / 308 Win M1 Garand (Beretta-made) from 10:52, then moved him on to a 7.92x57mm Mauser Kar98k for a bit of a shoulder beating from 39:37 and then the Tikka T3x Arctic in 7.62×51 / 308 Win at 57:04 for something modern!
Switzerland’s most popular native-English-language guns & shooting channel! Probably. Maybe. I guess. A somewhat off-the-wall and tongue-in-cheek look at firearms, military history and shooting, and a jolly good tilt at the windmills of fuddlore to go with it. And the odd off-topic vid about Switzerland, or whatever happens to take our fancy. We normally launch “in-series” vids on a Friday (early launch on a Wednesday via Patreon and the FB page https://www.facebook.com/Blokeontherange/ ), out-of-series vids launch precisely… whenever.
