A new sport has been born over the past few years, melding the adventure race with shooting sports. Imagine racing through 24 miles of rugged Terrain in New Mexico at 7,000 feet above sea level, carrying all the food, supplies, weapons, and ammunition you will need for a 36 hour race. You are only allowed to sleep for 2 hours, and you are constantly tracked by GPS. You must scale obstacles, push disabled vehicles, and run through shooting stations, all while exhausted. If it sounds like a scene from The Walking Dead then you are on the right track.
Adventure racing often melds Zombie and end of the world themes to up the fun level. Such as the Zombie Destruction Biathlon our team participated in during March 2015. In its purest form it is simply about being tough, having endurance, and surviving.. Our team fought their way through conditions most Americans never face at Survival Trial the survival trial in New Mexico and came out on top. Ed Dawejko took home 1st Place, and James Goyet took home 3rd.
How does all this pertain to Sons of Liberties primary mission of bringing Combat Grade M4s to the American people?
James and Ed race with our purpose built adventure race gun, the Swamp Fox. Weighing in at only 6lbs. featuring a Geissele SSA Trigger, Magpul MBUS Pro Backup sights, and a lightweight 14.7" barrel pin and welded to a Surefire ProComp Brake. The Swamp Fox is light enough to carry for 30 miles while still being fast for close up shots and MOA accurate for the long distance portions. We are proud to support the members of the racing team, look for continued updates as they kick ass all over the US.
