RECOIL is on scene at the Green Beret Pro Am again this year. We figure it’s a pretty damn good way to spend Veteran’s Day. Held every year at Range 37 PSR Gun Club (HQ of Raidon Tactics) right outside Ft. Bragg. This is the 5th Annual shoot. It pairs one amateur who has raised at least $1K for the Green Beret Foundation with a professional from the Special Forces community and historically raises many thousands of dollars (mostly via raffles, but also through direct donations).

The day began, fittingly enough, with the Pledge of Allegiance and the Special Forces Prayer, after which some salty Green Berets from the Green Beret Association Parachute Team jumped a massive American flag in kick things off (and by salty we mean one of them has over 8 thousand jumps). Then things went loud. We’ll have more information on the many vendors and supporters here later on. For now, we’ll hope the GBF can do as well as (or better than) last year, when they raised $60k.

If you’re interested in donating or getting in on some of the equipment raffles, you can do so at
