AK-47 Competition Shooting
Our special guest this episode is Brian Nelson. Brian is the creative mind behind the most anticipated AK-47/Com Block shooting competition in the Nation, Red Oktober. Brian is also a USPSA Grand Master in 4 divisions and winner of multiple Regional, National and World Championship practical shooting titles and awards. Also joining in on this episode are Kyle Moore, Jared Seagraves, Aaron Keener and Brian Keeney.
Red Oktober is an AK (AK-47, AK-74, AKM) shooting match and gun show festival blending 3-Gun style shooting with AK-type rifles. The competitions are practical-style providing a fun opportunity to compete using the AK-pattern rifle in a style that is typically slanted towards more modern AR-style designs. Red Oktober is NOT intended to be a tactics and doctrine-based exercise, just a fun celebration of Mikhail Kalashnikov’s rifle.
