BTNI Arms launched its new .308 Battle Rifle, made in the United States for American gun owners, as well as for export to foreign militaries. BTNI Arms manufactures small arms for export to vetted African armed forces, police and para-military units.

"Our USA-made firearms are of the highest quality, and we build each firearm with the knowledge that it needs to be reliable, durable and accurate, as it will be saving lives and defending the freedom and way of life of the countries and people who depend on it," said Jim Pledger, president of BNTI Arms.

The rifle features a precision-machined mil-spec 7075-TC aluminum matched lower and upper receiver, along with a mil-spec lower parts kit. The gun is available with multiple Cerakote color finishes, but it comes with a standard hard-coat anodized finish.

The rifle also comes with a 16.5-inch 416R stainless-steel barrel featuring a 1:10 twist rate. The barrel is finished with a VX308 Flash Hider from Odin Works. The gun also uses a 13.5-inch KeyMod Rail from Battle Arms Development. The ACS buttstock is supplied by Magpul.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
