First in a series of live videos, 3-Gun Nation cameras caught up with Todd VanLangen, team Beretta competition shooter and long range rifle instructor. VanLangen is a former military sniper with years of experience behind the long gun for both work and competition.
VanLangen serves as Range Master for the 3-Gun Nation Long Range events alongside Match Director Joe Burdick. But most notably, VanLangen teaches the 3-Gun Nation Long Range rifle classes, such as the one being held prior to the South Regional events on May 18, 2018 at Arena Training Facility. (The South Regional will not only host a full-scale 3-Gun Nation Regional match, but also an additional six-stage long range match).
In addition to VanLangen’s vast experience with training and long-range shooting, Todd is sponsored by Beretta firearms. Beretta, one of the most prominent names in the firearms industry, also features several sister brands of rifles to include Sako, Tikka and Victrix Armaments.
“Anyone can show up to my long-range class,” said VanLangen. “No matter what your skill level is, I can get you from zero to long range in a day. We go from ammo selection, gear selection into the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship into competition.”
However, being a sponsored Beretta shooter has its perks. Such as being able to utilize the Sako TRG 22 in 6.5 creedmore. “I like it because of the 60-degree throw on the action,” said VanLangen. If you like the 700’s, they have a 75-degree, so you can really cycle through rounds quick.”
Although VanLangen has access to one of the top rifles on the market, its not necessary to have an expensive gun to participate in long range. “We see all types of rifles in the 3-Gun Nation Long Range events. Whether a Remington 700, your Savages, the Ruger rifles, you name it. The biggest thing is to come out and play and the rest will take care of itself.”
