As much as I emphasize the importance of finding a handgun that fits YOUR hand.. And as much as I emphasize proper trigger press as a shooting fundamental…I’ve never really meshed those two principals together as this author does. And the correlation is SO obvious! Definitely will be stealing this incorporating this into our training […]
Empty Gun = Free Training (Part One)
Who doesn’t like free, right? With the cost of ammo at historic highs, and adding the cost of range time, for many of us doing significant live fire practice – by that I mean practice that is both effective and frequent enough to actually allow you to improve your skill set – is economically challenging. […]
How’d Wanda Do?
As well as could be expected. Considering her age and physical condition. And considering she had never fired a handgun in her life. (See previous post) At the end of an hour she was putting ten out of ten in a ten inch paper plate from ten yards. As well as could be expected. This […]

The increased peace […]

Just the pictures of the monsters on their website make my mouth water for Elk backstraps and a trip to the taxidermist. Check them out if you are looking for a […]
Ten Top Self-defense Ammo Picks | OutdoorHub
Tom McHale over at Outdoor Hub has penned this provocatively named article. Not the most in depth and scientific test protocol. Never the less, based on a lot of shooting experience.

Not “Can I?” – But “Must I?”
One of the scarier phenomenon I see in classes are the occasional questions that start out – “If x, y, and z happen, can I shoot ‘em?” And that is the wrong question. The question should end with “…must I shoot him?” And of course I can’t answer that one. I won’t be there when […]
