The Tactical Games is the hot new expression of the second amendment and physical fitness bringing Crossfit and multigun together into a shoot-em-up puke fest.

My name is Tim Jensen. You may know me as the "Grunt Style 1SG". I have drank more beer, pissed more blood, banged more quiff and beat more ass than all you numb nuts put together.  I am an ass kicking, hard charging salty soldier of the sea, so that means don't jerk me around or I'll kick your ass off this friggen planet. I like drinking whiskey and smoking fine cigars, play a lot of poker and can shoot the hair off a fly's ass well over 1000 yards away.    Military Career Marine: Vehicle Commander, Rear Section Leader as well as dismounted infantry squad leader of...

What is the difference between a professional baseball player, pro-football player, or basketball player and a tactical athlete? Professional sports players get an offseason. Tactical athletes, however, are on point 24/7/365 with No Off Season!  A Green Beret, SEAL, or Delta Operator doesn’t have the luxury of taking a day off. They don’t get to say, “I’m just not into it today!” They are constantly deploying or preparing to deploy.

On my recent vacation I started writing a book on getting started in 3 Gun. I really want to highlight as much of the community as I can. Please email me: Pictures of life at matches / practice Great 3 Gun Quotes Short stories about 3 gun Here are a couple paragraphs from the intro to the new book (unedited).

Cameras and Gear for filming 3 gun and creating influencer content
 
You can find all the gear we recommend on our Amazon page:
 
Stick with your smartphone at least at the beginning. You can do a ton with a smart phone and basic editing software.
 
Upgrade 1: Filmic Pro Mobile for iPhone and Android gives you a lot more control of the quality of picture, focus, compression, etc. It gives you zebra stripes for exposure and edge highlighting for focus. $14.99
 
Upgrade 2: Small table top tripod / Large Tripod $20 - $200 Look at Sunpak or Manfroto
 
Upgrade 3: Rode VideoMicro $50-60 with the dead cat and all the cables you need for mobile or a DSLR
Option: Samson GoMic $200 lavmic
 
Upgrade 4: Osmo Mobile 2 $120-130
 
1080 vs 4K from Filmora.com:
There are a number of reasons why 4K has pulled clearly ahead of 1080P in terms of picture quality. These reasons focus mainly on factors surrounding the way it is able to resolve extra fine detail, being able to see this detail when seated closer than ever to the screen, and from a production point of view, the ability to scale down the recording to regular HD and other formats while retaining the high contrast, highly detailed quality of the original (particularly when viewed up close).
The top three reasons that 4K video trumps 1080P are: Detail, Closer viewing, Scaling
 
Upgrade to DSLR or Video Camera
 
Highly recommend a comcorder for ease and cost. Sony has some awesome cameras for all price ranges we particularly like the AX53 $800-1000
* 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) recording of more subtle detail and color
* Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active mode
* 1.05 inch ZEISS Vario-Sonnar® T* lens with optical 20x zoom range
 
DSLR will give the very best video quality but requires the most work
We love the Panasonic G85 $600-700 with a basic stabilized lens and G5 $1400 body only. Expect $300-whatever for a lens.
 
Other considerations and gear:
 
Batteries
Storage, on camera
Storage, off camera
Processing requirements for editing
More Microphones Rode Pro
Editing software
Inexpensive: iMovie free for mac Adobe Elements $70 one time
Top of the line: Adobe Premier $20 per month and Final Cut Pro $300 one time 
Mobile: iMovie, android adobe has an option google best video editor android and read..
 
Lewis Bisono, 3 Gunner, Short Bio:
I did not grow up around guns as I was raised in an anti gun household. I started shooting in 2010, about 2012 I started shooting bowling pins and steel plate matches. I wanted more action, found 3gun around 2013. 
 
So I’m very particular when it comes to video content. In the early days when Instagram was only 15 seconds I jumped in and started creating small comedy videos which can still be seen on my other page @lewis_kankoo. It’s been prob 5 years since I filmed a comedy skit and mainly got out of it because I felt like the market was getting saturated with garbage content that wasn’t funny. On top of that people started paying for subscribers and I wanted to organically grown my own audience without having to buy fake followers. Then I really started getting into shooting so that page kind of died off but I still leave it up because a lot of people enjoy the old ones. Heres a quick example:
 
 
Those were the good old days. All done on my iPhone 4 lol. My current goals would be to share what I’m learning and seeing everyday with my audience. I think the #1 thing that makes phone videos kind of blah is the audio. I tend to watch much longer when something  is recorded with a mic versus someone recording how to’s as they hold their phone. I’d like to start a YouTube channel for videos that are longer etc. plus it would be cool to get some badass stage videos.
