One can only imagine that Gene Stoner is up in Heaven smiling as his design continues to see record sales. The AR-15 rifle and its myriad clones are hands down the most popular self-loading center-fire rifles on the American market. It might be easier to count the number of gun owners who don’t have a “Black Rifle” than those who do.
It is also true that a huge number of those who purchased a Stoner-style rifle during the last four to five years haven’t had any formal training with the guns and probably haven’t realized their full potential. That is where “Black Rifle Boot Camp: An Introduction to the AR15” comes into play. Hosted by Marine Corps veteran instructor Paul Markel, this new DVD thoroughly examines the rifles inside and out as well as discussing the best way to operate them.
Topics include the examination of caliber choices, operating systems (Gas Piston vs. Direct Gas-Impingement), barrel lengths and contours, aftermarket accessories, optic choices, marksmanship and operation, and much more. The viewer can take advantage of the same kind of instruction Mr. Markel has provided to thousands of U.S. Military troops. The “Black Rifle Boot Camp” DVD is available for immediate purchase by going to http://www.studentofthegungear.com.
Paul Markel is the host of Student of the Gun. SOTG has aired on the Sportsman Channel and Pursuit Channel.
