Mossberg Tri-Rail HuntWe’re doing a little something different here at with this article. While it’s common to review a firearm or optic separately—and we’ve done many such reviews ourselves--we decided it would also be helpful to review hunting rigs we’ve actually used afield—used successfully. The whole set up, from firearm and optic, to ammunition and any other tactical accessories we used. Brian McCombie starts off this new venue with a look at a shotgun set up……

SHWAT Guest Hunt50-60 hogs, maybe more, tightly bunched. Fish in a barrel! One slight problem; not our field to hunt and it has cows on it. ARHG! We hang around hoping they would migrate to land we could hunt. Nope, they were quite happy where they were. Now this was a bit agonizing, as we stood and drooled, mindful of small impediments like trespassing, hitting a cow, never mind a game warden… We drooled and resigned ourselves to go check other fields we could actually hunt.

Then… BAM BAM BAM. Oh I hit it for sure, I learned what the phrase “squeal like a pig” meant real quick.

On the day after Thanksgiving who wants to camp out to buy another flat screen TV when you can go kill hogs?

SHWAT Guest"Since my brothers started SHWAT a few years ago I have been the beneficiary of some very nice “table scraps.” Don’t get me wrong, my two boxers would tell you if they could talk that they live for table scraps and the occasional item that happens to hit the kitchen floor. It’s the highlight of the doggie culinary world. As are the experiences I have been able to take part in on occasion with my brothers Stephen and Jonathan. As a more “regular guy” with a demanding 8-5 M-F job, scheduling is always a bit tougher for me so when I do get to participate in any of their events, well, they are the highlight of the year and produce much bragging and bravado for several months! Seriously. Like I said, this took place the day after Thanksgiving and I am still talking about it!"

MDR Desert TechHave you ever wondered what it would be like to be part of a cutting edge firearms research and development team? Or maybe just to have a range day in the mountains with top trainers in long range shooting, handguns and more? Me too! And that’s exactly what just happened when Desert Tech invited SHWAT™ and nine others from around the country to their new training facility on the Utah/Idaho border. Ostensibly, we came to test drive, beat up and do our best to break prototype MDR bullpup rifles. Did you know you could shoot .308 one handed? We did all that, and had an amazing day on the range with a few other teams and weapon systems. The possibilities for the tactically minded hunter seemed endless!
