According to the press release, this video sees Freddie reviewing a number of different optics from Aimpoint, EOTech, Trijicon, Vortex, and JP Enterprises. He goes over the durability, reliability, trouble shooting, optic mounts, the downed optic drill, the occluded optic drill, mechanical offset, parallax and asymmetric position, reticle tracking, optics for handguns and shotguns, and zeroing at 100, 200, and 300 meters.
Freddie certainly has the experience to host this instructional video. As the release points out, Freddie is a retired Lieutenant Colonel from the United States Marine Corps, where he served for 24 years. After retiring, he served as the Director of Military Business Development for Aimpoint, Inc, where he spearheaded a training program on their use by the US Army Regional Training Center firearms instructors, US Army Mountain Warfare School, USAF Para-Rescue, and I Marine Expeditionary Force Advisory Training Teams.
“Many people like to run non-magnified dot optics on their carbines,” the press release reads. “There is also the trend to run them on pistols. Yet a good percentage of folks don’t know the difference between the different brands of dot optics on the market or how to best utilize the optics within their given applications. With Intro to Combat Optics, Freddie Blish covers all there is to know and then some.”
Intro to Combat Optics is available streaming from the Panteao website and will be available on DVD. MSRP is $39.99.
