    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.*NEW* FUNDAMENTALS COURSE: https://moderndaysniper.mykajabi.com/sp-fundamentalsSchoolhouse:https://moderndaysniper.mykajabi.com/sq-circle-of-components MDS:https://moderndaysniper.com https://www.instagram.com/caylen8541 https://www.instagram.com/moderndaysniper https://www.instagram.com/velayo_0317 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-modern-day-sniper-podcast/id1496688913 https://open.spotify.com/show/0FJIQbOcwVZiN1V4pZgJAd?si=5rsRTxHgTK2ImlrDgVAEXw https://moderndaysniper.podbean.com/

    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! https://www.facebook.com/jacob.bynum.39https://www.facebook.com/riflesonly/https://www.facebook.com/RiflesOnlyAssassinsWay/ https://www.instagram.com/rifles_only/?hl=enhttps://www.instagram.com/bynum.jacob/?hl=en Schoolhouse: https://moderndaysniper.mykajabi.com/sq-circle-of-components MDS:https://moderndaysniper.com https://www.instagram.com/caylen8541 https://www.instagram.com/moderndaysniper https://www.instagram.com/velayo_0317 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-modern-day-sniper-podcast/id1496688913 https://open.spotify.com/show/0FJIQbOcwVZiN1V4pZgJAd?si=5rsRTxHgTK2ImlrDgVAEXw https://moderndaysniper.podbean.com/

    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! Gun University: https://gununiversity.com/Schoolhouse:https://moderndaysniper.mykajabi.com/sq-circle-of-components MDS:https://moderndaysniper.com https://www.instagram.com/caylen8541 https://www.instagram.com/moderndaysniper https://www.instagram.com/velayo_0317 https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-modern-day-sniper-podcast/id1496688913 https://open.spotify.com/show/0FJIQbOcwVZiN1V4pZgJAd?si=5rsRTxHgTK2ImlrDgVAEXw https://moderndaysniper.podbean.com/

    MDS Episode #0020: Len Waldron on the modern hunting rifle

    With Phil getting the Gunwerks Long Range University training season started, we invited a great friend on the podcast, Mr. Len Waldron. Len is an accomplished outdoor writer, experienced rifle hunter, and the owner of a newly patented firearms lubricant, EDC CLP. During this podcast, Caylen and Len discuss the progression of the rifle hunter over the last decade, and how new rifles, optics, and most importantly bullet design and construction allow the modern rifle hunter to ethically and responsibly extend their effective range when pursuing game. They discuss some epic hunting trips and adventures of the past and how those experiences drive training to establish new baselines.EDC CLP Firearms Lubricant https://edcclp.com/Waldron Pond Outdoors https://www.youtube.com/user/fincam61/videosIG: https://www.instagram.com/waldron.pond/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WaldronPond/Schoolhouse:https://moderndaysniper.mykajabi.com/sq-circle-of-componentsMDS:https://moderndaysniper.comhttps://www.instagram.com/caylen8541https://www.instagram.com/moderndaysniperhttps://www.instagram.com/velayo_0317https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-modern-day-sniper-podcast/id1496688913https://open.spotify.com/show/0FJIQbOcwVZiN1V4pZgJAd?si=5rsRTxHgTK2ImlrDgVAEXwhttps://moderndaysniper.podbean.com/

Knowledge

Tons of no bs info about all aspects of the long range game! Truly believe everyone can take something away from each episode, I know it’s helped my mental game.

Practical information!

As a newer long shooter it’s hard to filter through the massive volume of information available.

Caylen and Phil offer clear information that is directly applicable. I listen and then apply at my next opportunity to shoot. I’ve found more consistency and fixed a more than a few ‘small’ things that have made big differences.

Keep the info coming!
