The Equipment that I use

These are the various pieces of equipment that I take to the firing line with me.



Rifle with Sling

Lower receiver: Rock River Arms NM lower with Magpul UBR Gen 1 Buttstock

Trigger: Geissele Automatics service rifle trigger

Upper receiver: White Oak Armament

Barrel is any decent stainless steel match barrel

Optics: Leupold FX-II scope made to WOA specifications with custom made elevation and windage knobs graduated in clicks.

The sling is just a normal cotton web sling purchased from any number of sources. Some are more frayed than others and some have a little mold on them. They are regularly replaced.

Spotting Scope with Stand

Spotting scope: Kowa TSN-821M

Stand: Ewing


Shooting Coat

Creedmoor all leather highpower coat. This coat fits me well and is very comfortable.


Armato shooting mat. I've had this mat since 1998 and really like it. It's well padded and easy to roll up.


Schneller Shooting Cart

Offhand Ammo Holder

I bought this back in the late '90's and I can't remember where. It's made by Fields Custom Leather Slings of Oregon.

Hearing Protection

My wife is an Audiologist. She made impressions of my ears and had these ear plugs made. Yellow is left and green is right.

Shooting Glasses

Junkers glasses from I.S.S. in Texas. Only the right lens has any correction. The left lens is just plain glass with a metal blinder.

Data Book with Case

I like this nylon portfolio from Creedmoor. They also make the aluminum clipboard. The data sheets themselves are self-created.


Champion's Choice glove. The glove is replaced every year because they begin to smell during the course of the season.
