Who is the Obsidian Concepts For?

Published: March 4, 2019|Written by: Andrew Bryant

This blog is as a resource for the novice who has never fired a weapon to modern day gunslinger. I will cover firearms, gear, industry news, and provide guides for shooters. I will also cover news within the military and L.E. communities. Think of me as Morpheus and you are Neo. I am here to show you how deep the rabbit hole truly goes.

There is so much going on in the firearms industry all I want to do with this blog is to provide a reliable source of information for fellow shooters. To give you the information to make informed firearms purchases, give you the scoop on a new piece of gear hitting the market, and to provide insight into the trends of the industry. I want to turn this into the Wikipedia for the firearms community.

A Blog for Shooters by Shooters

If you enjoy shooting, firearms, tactics, and gear you will feel right at home here at Obsidian. This is a blog built by a shooter for shooters. You will be able to get your fix here.

What to Expect

  • Quality above all else. This blog will be a reliable information source covering everything from firearms, gear, and industry news. Creating a hub of information for a new shooter to our high-speed low drag shooter.
  • Guides for everyone. I will create guides for  new shooters to advance guides for experience shooters. We will have a beginner’s guide to guns to advance guides on how to make wind adjustments. All will be covered in time. 
  • Industry News and Spotlights. I will cover industry news and trends. To make sure you have the insights on what is going on within the industry. I will also do industry spotlight profiles on companies to show the positive qualities and  spotlight articles on people within the firearms industry. 
  • Military Battles and Tactics. Lastly, I will research and study military battles and tactics and what brought them victory on the battlefield. Just because I enjoy military history and tactics.

Bringing Credibility to the Game

In the grand scheme of things I am not Tier 1 operator. I don’t have their skill sets and knowledge of those masters (I would love to take a master class from them though). I’m not going to try to act like I do. I am 0311(Marine Infantry) through and through. I served in 2nd Battalion 4th Marines, 5th Marines Reg, 1st Mardiv. I attained the rank of Sargent and the billet of squad leader. I did two deployments. One to Afghanistan and the second apart of the 31st MEU. I was a motivator while I served in the Marines and I was a student of the war. War is  my obsession and still is. I can’t blow you away with military stories of the high-speed and low drag situations but, my tactical and technical proficiencies are sound. I currently work in the firearms industry at a local range in Vegas as a Range Safety Officer. I plan on working towards getting my certification to become NRA certified CCW instruction and much more. 

How the Obsidian Came to Be

This blog has been a brainchild of mine for years now to be honest.  I always wanted a place where I could get reliable and cohesive firearms information. A lot of sources on internet when it comes to firearms is half-truths, misinformation, or partial information when it comes to firearms. This blog will be a reliable source of information for readers within or outside of the community.

About Me

I know a lot of people say they hate talking about themselves. I actually loathe it to be completely honest with you. Oh, well here we go. I am a nerd and absolute geek at heart.  I have always had a passion for the martial arts and combat. I have always wanted to go around the world and learn different martial arts and learn about different cultures. I have a passion for shooting, firearms, and tactics also. I want to share my passion with the community and world. So, I created this page as a hub for people who are like-minded within the community. With this blog I want to share my growth not only as a shooter but, as a man who is trying to live his life with purpose and vision. This blog is to be a voice to my passions. Join me on my journey.
