Larry Vickers, of Vickers Tactical, is one of the most prominent names in the firearms industry, and for good reason.

Vickers is a retired U.S. Army 1st SFOD- Delta combat veteran with years of experience in the firearms industry as a combat marksmanship instructor and industry consultant.

In his latest video, courtesy of Aimpoint and Bravo Company Manufacturing, Vickers discusses the proper way to hold a carbine with minimal recoil after each shot.

Vickers says that the key to controlling your carbine “you have to pull it straight back, straight to the rear.” Watch the video above to see exactly what he means!
