Today, we feature your intrepid SOFREP Managing Editor going prone during Range Day at SHOT Show 2024 in Las Vegas.

I’m firing “The Hitsville,” a 24″ 6.5mm Creedmoor bolt action rifle manufactured by Detroit Gun Works.

The action of the bolt was as smooth as butter, and even though I’m a bit rusty, I had no issue plinking the 960-meter gong target. It’s a satisfying feeling.

This firearm is a finely tuned instrument, not surprising for a company that also machines parts for the likes of SpaceX and NASA.
