Michael Helm writer

Michael joins the SniperCountry family

Welcome Mike Helms – a firearm historian and esteemed Smith & Wesson collector!

Sniper Country is delighted to introduce our latest writer to our core team, Michael (Mike) Helms. 

We find that Mikes are especially good at writing about firearms…

Michael 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, Mike has nearly given up on leather holsters and now prefers kydex.
