About

My name is Todd Dow, aka Rifleslinger.  I started writing the blog, Art of the Rifle, in June of 2011, in an attempt to guide and document my journey in rifle shooting, while hopefully educating others.  In the summer of 2012 I saw a need for an improved rifle sling and designed one.  I had to figure out how to make it, and thought it was good enough that others would like to buy it too.

My approach to riflery is grounded in techniques, equipment, and a philosophy oriented towards practical shooting in the field, i.e., real world applied rifle shooting.  I am also fascinated by precision long range rifle shooting.  I’m committed to producing quality work that is useful to shooters who share my approach.
