Former Navy SEAL Team 6 Member Mark Owen Gets Down and Dirty at Fire Range

Watch as former Navy SEAL Team 6 Member Mark Owen takes you out on an epic journey at his rogue outdoor firing range.

High speed low drag shooting tactics.

Mark shoots multiple weapons and loads of rounds while hitting his target nearly every time.

Mark’s expert marksmanship is not only a sight to see but also shows the dedication and hard work the Navy SEAL Teams put into this practice so that they can be ready for anything.

Mark Owen is from a remote village population 500 to 700 people in Alaska where he graduated his Senior year as ValVictorian of only 3 graduating students that year. He drove a snowmobile to school each day.

He bought his first assault rifle – AR-15 — from his History teacher between classes, put the gun in his locker until the end of the day then brought it home. Mark did a lot of moose hunting to help feed the family.

Growing up in Alaska taught Mark how to be comfortable being uncomfortable because of the extreme winter weather. It also taught him how to break everything down one bite at a time because survival in extreme situations takes focus.

It also helped him with the evolutions at BUD/S and breaking them down even further.

Each BUD/S class student does the following:

  • Runs 1,627 Miles
  • Swims 134.2 miles
  • Runs the Obstacle Course 39 times
  • Conducts 42 Dives, spending 61 hours under water
  • Each Class Shoots 1,413,000 rounds of small arms ammunition
  • Each Class Detonates 13,382 pounds of high explosives
  • You hike or patrol 150 miles
  • You complete a combat conditioning course 12 mile run, wearing 70 pounds of gear, to complete in 3 hours or less

Then is you add it all up, the equivalent is basically swimming from Cuba to the southern tip of Florida and then running all the way to New York City.

Question: Who is Mark Owen from SEAL Team Six?

Mark Owen is a pseudonym used by a former member of the United States Navy SEALs who gained widespread attention after being identified as the author of the book “No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden.” The book, published in 2012, provided a detailed firsthand perspective on the planning and execution of the mission that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

The author behind the pseudonym Mark Owen was later revealed to be Matt Bissonnette, a former Navy SEAL who had been a member of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU), commonly known as SEAL Team Six. Bissonnette’s decision to write the book under the pseudonym “Mark Owen” and to provide an insider’s account of the operation generated significant controversy and legal scrutiny.

“No Easy Day” received attention for its detailed description of the bin Laden raid and the operations of SEAL Team Six, as well as its potential disclosure of sensitive and classified information. The book’s publication led to debates over national security concerns, adherence to non-disclosure agreements signed by former military personnel, and potential breaches of confidentiality regarding operational tactics and security protocols.

Despite the controversy surrounding the book’s release, it offered readers insights into the training, dedication, and professionalism of the Navy SEALs, particularly SEAL Team Six, highlighting the intense preparations and risks involved in conducting high-stakes special operations.
