We just ran into Taran Butler of Taran Tactical Innovations on the floor of SHOT Show 2019 and he was kind enough to spend a few minutes with us to answer some questions. We talked about what to look for in an AR, how to separate gimmicks from the real deal, how to get into competition shooting and more.
In part one of our two part interview with Chris Costa, we talk with Chris about his early days at Magpul Dynamics and his role in the very influential video, The Art of the Tactical Carbine. With Magpul celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year, we think it’s a fitting time to look back at the tremendous influence of that video, and also discuss with Chris how the training concepts shared in that video change over time.

To learn a bit more about the legend of Jim and Hodge Defense Systems, we reached out to the man himself.
