Our Intent

The Practical Sharpshooter was created to share information that tends to be tribal or insider knowledge on topics related to competitive shooting, hunting, self/home defense or other subjects related to firearms use. Our contributors have the benefit of experience and access to many shooting disciplines, industry knowledge and sources within the firearms industry. This page is intended to document, maintain and grow the collective knowledge base of the shooting community.


These content contributors are fully vetted industry professionals that have practical and real-world experience with the guns, gear and other topics you’ll find here.
