AHP017 - Mike YardleyMike Yardley is a shooter, hunter and journalist  out of the United Kingdom. Mike runs the website positiveshooting.com.

Mike has written over 3000 articles for an array of different firearms issues for magazines. Mike is the author of several books and believes in good gun fitting and the positive shooting mindset. Mike has reviewed thousands of firearms over his lifetime and gives honest feedback on all his reviews.

Mike, with the help of Discovery channel completed a re-enactment of the Dallas Texas Kennedy assignation. Mike’s assessment of the re-enactment in his opinion is Lee Harvey Oswald, “or” the shooter who in fact shot John F Kennedy, certainly  could have realistically made those shots that killed President Kennedy.

This was a great interview. I really enjoyed hearing about the John F Kennedy assignation because I have many friends who live in Dallas Texas. I have been to Dallas about 5 times since the early 2000’s. If you get a chance to go to Dallas, You’ll love it.
