Remington Defense & Hot Brass

Five days at Gunsite will test your gear. This is where good guns break and old men realize they are old. It’s also where you can easily throw out your back and blow out a knee while working through shooting drills or ego busters like the Scrambler.

I spent these five days doing things like stalking imaginary Cape buffalo on my butt with a Remington 700 in .375 H&H on my lap and diving to my knees shooting a Remington Defense select fire R5 RGP.

Remington’s PR Manager Jessica Kallam told me that Gunsite owner Buz Mills had been watching me and wanted to know where I got my pants. I would have preferred he commented positively on my shooting but, at least he noticed…Right?

At any rate, as always, when at Gunsite I learn and over the past week I’ve learned that Mountain Khaki’s Original Cargo Pant is indeed range ready, range capable and, apparently, more interesting than watching a gunwriter shoot.

    Sounds like fun…

    A bit of a typo in the there made me run to the Remington link to see if they actually were selling RPGs, (also, select fire RPGs)

    The correct acronym is Remington RGP – Remington Gas Piston.
