373: Choosing the Perfect Optic Mount with Tom Stewart

This week’s Guest is Tom Stewart from American Defense Manufacturing. Tom gives us the deepest dive you ever thought possible on optics mounts. We cover mount material, cant, cantilever, height, ring separation, torque and much, much more. 

Then Tom offers advice on how to get your junior into competitive shooting. Tom is an expert in that as well having gotten both of his kids into the shooting sports and traveling extensively for matches with the family. Tom discusses a progressive path of difficulty and responsibility from air rifles to 3-Gun and how to train while keeping it fun.

But first we discuss Tom’s path into competitive shooting that started with his desire to be better at his job in law enforcement. Tom has some amazing advice for professionals and civilians alike. This is an information-packed interview here and you’re going to love it.
