About Sniper Country

What We Cover

How We Work

If possible (i.e. our budget allows it), we buy the products we review. Sometimes companies send us free samples for us to test & review, however this will never affect the opinion of our authors.

As stated elsewhere on this site, we do earn a small commission if you buy something through one of our affiliate links. If you decide to support us this way, there are absolutely no additional costs for you and these earnings allow us to keep this website going. Thanks!

Our Team

Our team includes several gun enthusiasts, focused on different firearm variations. That way you can trust our advice on which .357 Magnum revolver you should buy, as well as our guides covering rifle cartridges.

Mike has been a shooter, bullet caster and reloader for more than 40 years. Never one to be satisfied with the status quo, he is often found at his reloading bench concocting yet another load. With a target range in his backyard and after 40 years of shooting, his knowledge of firearms and reloading is fairly extensive. He is married, with four sons and daughters-law and 8-and-counting grandkids.

Michael Helm writer

Mike is a firearms historian and handgun shooting enthusiast. With almost 20 years of experience in the shooting sports, Mike loves to contrast a company’s latest offerings with its ancestral guns. He doesn’t shy away from modern technology, though, and some of his favorite guns are “plastic fantastics.” A devotee to iron sights and a believer in the Weaver stance, he has nearly given up on leather holsters and now prefers kydex. Mike sits on the board of directors for the Smith & Wesson Collectors Association and is a member of the American Society of Arms Collectors, and he is writing a book about Smith & Wesson’s Model 1 revolver. He holds a degree in history and lives near the bayous of southern Louisiana.


Author Image Ken

Ken has a passion for writing and a love of all thing mechanical. He is currently studying towards a degree in Aircraft Maintenance and spends his free time working on his track car and mountain biking. As an Arizona native, Ken loves to escape the desert heat at the shooting range. He is particularly interested in the advancement of gun technology over time. He has a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, and applies what he learned to researching and writing about interesting topics in the world of firearms.

Ken mainly focuses on gear reviews. He covers everything from shooting gloves to gun oil and does most of his testing while shooting in the desert.


Author Huston

Huston is a hunting enthusiast who believes your success in the field is directly correlated to the amount of preparation at home. With a degree in Microbiology and several years of doctoral work manipulating bacterial genes, he attempts to merge the rational and unbiased thinking of scientific research with the passions of hunting and fishing. With two decades of chasing all manner of upland game, hooved mammals, strutting gobblers, and any small game that can fit in his Dutch oven, he hopes to offer new ideas and viewpoints on hunting and firearm concepts and traditions.

On Sniper Country Huston focuses on ammo. He is responsible for all our very popular cartridge comparisons.

How we try to stay on top of things…

Information that was up to date yesterday could be outdated the next morning. New standards are being developed and new products get released constantly. While a buying guide for rifles might be relevant for years a list of the best long range scopes might very well include a product not available anymore, a few months after it has been published. To avoid that from happening we fulfill periodical checks, to make sure the information we provide is always and stays applicable.

Although we take the maintenance of the information we provide extremely seriously, there is always a chance that we missed out on something. If you as a reader notice outdated information, we highly encourage you to get in touch with us, by using our contact page. We appreciate every contribution and reply as fast as possible.
