OutdoorsBest started as a passion for long range shooting and turned into a collaboration of like-minded people who want nothing more to share their knowledge and experience with those interested in the hobby.
We found early on that many shooters were familiar with firearms but few were well versed in optics technology. By following the market and the advances in optics production, we were able to fill that niche.
With decades of experience behind the scope in hunting and target shooting around the country, we wanted to bring what we know to the table and share it so that others could learn from our success and failures. We want to take what we know and apply it in a way that not only helps other shooters become more accurate but also gives new shooters what they need to get the accuracy we all strive for.
Having grown up around firearms and hunting in various environments, we had the opportunity that most people don’t. We got to develop our skills from an early age and make our mistakes while we were young. The modern shooting market makes that much more expensive. If we can save one person from making one bad decision on an optic or rifle purchase, we are a success.
Mostly, we are very glad you stopped by. Hopefully, you found what you are looking for here. We would love to hear your feedback to improve our site and provide a better service to the shooting community.
It can sometimes be hard to put into words the skills it takes years to develop. If you have questions or comments about an article, reach out to us! We want to know what you think and we want to make our site better!
