The missions of the Tac Girls – Brittney owns January
You may have noticed a series of interesting new videos appearing in the video tab here on RECOILweb. Those come to us courtesy of the Tac Girls. The Tactical Girls – and their calendar – are what happens when a number of beautiful women, a military history buff, the owner of a NFA Class III business and a photographer all get together (you can read more about the whys and wherefores of being a Tac Girl here). Interestingly, many of these ladies are competitive shooters and/or CCW holders. We’ll tell you a little bit more about them in future episodes. Tonight we’ll introduce you to TacGirl Brittney, of January 2014.
Brittney is currently Miss South Dakota USA 2014. She’s 24 years old and is an impassioned equestrienne. When not riding or working as the Director for a ‘horses for the handicapped’ organization she shoots, fishes, goes 4-wheeling and watches hockey. The weapon she is using in this vignette is a Spike’s Tactical Black Assassin. More information on the rifle and its furniture below. As for Brittney – she has green eyes, is 5′ 8″ tall and her vitals are 34D-26-33.

NOTES: With the Black Assassin Spike’s painstakingly picked apart every component of the AR platform to save weight without sacrificing strength, reliability or performance. The evolutionary result is an excellent, lightweight competition rifle that retains the strength and reliability expected by tactical operators, the best of all worlds.
In building the Assassin, Spike’s examined every aspect of the AR-15 design and improved it using billet parts, self-lubricating coatings and top shelf components. The ambidextrous safety and magazine release expected by competitors is also appreciated by operators who may need offhand controls in more dire situations.
