Queue Aaron Barruga.
Barruga is a Special Forces veteran who served in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world. He now runs Guerilla Approach to help train operators in practical, real-world tactics.
Ballistic Magazine tagged along at one of Barruga’s Guerrilla Approach courses. He let us jump in the passenger seat for a first-hand view as he took to the skies.
Using his Bravo Company Manufacturing RECCE 16 KMR-A Carbine, it’s easy to see why Barruga is considered an expert on the topic at hand. He fitted the rifle with Leupold’s 1-MOA Red Dot Reticle.
Watch the video above for a better look at what it’s like to shoot (accurately) from above.
