About High Ground Media:

Beginning in 2017 with just a simple Facebook page, what started off as STL Shooting Enthusiasts, LLC featured a researched list of USPSA, IDPA, Tactical 2/3-Gun, and other unique shooting sport events throughout the Missouri and Illinois region. By 2022, Saint Louis Shooting Enthusiasts was deplatformed off Facebook, and remade itself as High Ground Media, LLC. The intent remains the same; to bring like-minded pro-2A enthusiasts together either through competitions, highlight trusted vendors, and build community. Today High Ground Media and all its data and content reside on its own independent web site that allows for an RSS feed and more dynamic content to includes; product reviews, editorials, developmental drills, and a blog feed.

About Us:


With a nod to Internet privacy and as the Owner and writer to High Ground Media, my name is Brian and I am an Army combat veteran (1998-2006). I served in the military for eight years throughout the world to include stations in; Georgia (twice), Korea, Texas, and Arizona. I have served three tours in Iraq, and four in Afghanistan, for a total of over three years combined overseas service. It has been an honor to serve alongside some of the greatest units in our armed forces – and those men and women whom have worn, or wear, the uniform will continue to have my respect. After my life in the military, I continue to work for the Department of Defense but only recently (2018) took up competitive shooting in USPSA. I look to grow in this area of my personal life while working towards the more comprehensive “tactical athlete” mindset while espousing the trifecta of mind, might, fight. With COVID-19 while I have not participated in many matches in 2020, the time in quarantine has allowed me to explore better ways to grow the site and write more informative-based editorials to help others think about their gear and performance.
