Focus

Thu, 02/01/2018 - 20:51

Last week when I was on the range doing all the shooting for last weeks Junk Science show I noticed something that I’d never noticed before. When I was doing the step into the box draws, I could reliably shave a tenth of a second when I put my focus on the draw stroke, and …

JUNK SCIENCE: Are Race Holsters Worth It?

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 22:00

For a long time I’ve wondered if the expensive race holsters that hold the gun just by the trigger guard are really worth the money, so that’s what I’ve decided to find out for this episode. So, here’s what I did: I setup a 10″ steel plate at 10y. I tested both holsters with 50 …

This week on the podcast: JUNK SCIENCE!

Sun, 01/21/2018 - 19:38

This is one that I’ve been really excited about doing for a while. I was originally going to do this with a knockoff CR Speed WSMII holster that I’ve had kicking around for a while, but then I decided to put it on the back burner until I could get my hands on a real-deal …

Q&A: Killed in the Streets!

Wed, 01/17/2018 - 18:20

Eric Lucas, I have a question for your Q&A if you would like. I know this touches on a subject you have talked about in the past. The closest USPSA club to me is an hour away. They shut down fairly early in the season. Last summer I still wanted to do some more matches …

Where to Start in Practice

Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:44

Been thinking a bit about practice, and where I should be spending my time in practice since I haven’t shot a match in about 4 months. What are the areas that I need to work on? Probably everything, and if that’s a thing, starting can seem overwhelming. I mentioned on the podcast last week that …

Ruger wants input on an IDPA gun

Wed, 01/10/2018 - 07:00

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: a Ruger SR9 with no safety, a 5″ barrel, and a decent set of adjustable sights, and forward cocking serrations, and hell, might as well add an optic cut, would make a killer beginner competition gun. There was never really anything wrong with the Ruger SR9, …

The Dumbest Thing Glock’s Ever Done!

Tue, 01/09/2018 - 20:51

Every time Glock releases a new product, they’re met by hoards of neckbeards shouting “That’s the dumbest thing Glock’s ever done!” all over the internet. Case in point from my memory: Glock releases RTF2 guns – Dumbest thing Glock’s ever done! Glock releases fishgill slide serrations – Dumbest thing Glock’s ever done! Glock discontinues RTF2 …

A Few Things for 2018

Fri, 01/05/2018 - 21:41

I’d like to see ALL of the major shooting sports stop fudging around with the rules all the time. We’ve been playing around with provisional divisions in USPSA for a couple years now, just make them official divisions. The USPSA part isn’t really a big deal, so lets talk about IDPA for a second. OMG. …

What to do with Junior Shooters who don’t help?

Wed, 12/13/2017 - 17:53

2018 Goals. I’m writing it down here, throwing down the gauntlet for 2018: I will make USPSA Production Master before my birthday at the end of June. I refused to make this goal last year, but 2018 is the time to make it happen. You read it here first folks. What are your goals for …

Q&A: What the heck is Hardcover and Softcover?

Thu, 12/07/2017 - 21:10

Jamie Stage planning. I’m struggling coming from IDPA to USPSA in stage planning. What are some basic tips to help? Are you breaking stages up by the number of positions? What are you looking for at each position? Is there a standard procedure I’m missing or haven’t yet learned? Seems overwhelming sometimes. I think stage …

The first piece of advice anyone gave me about USPSA

Wed, 11/08/2017 - 19:46

When I shot my first match, a local Grand Master shooter gave me a piece of advice that’s stuck with me to this day: “You’re not one of Charlie’s Angels, so don’t try to be them.” He then went on to explain that new shooters have a tendency to lock their elbows when they’re transitioning …

Keep your dummy rounds in your magazines during dryfire!

Mon, 11/06/2017 - 08:00

What can’t Gorilla tape do? I love this stuff, and it works great for keeping my dummy rounds from flying out of my magazines and all over the garage during dryfire. Some folks don’t drop magazines. If that works for you, it’s the simplest solution. Start your drill without a magazine in the gun, push …

So, You Want to be a Sponsored Shooter?

Sun, 11/05/2017 - 16:03

Gear that Doesn’t Suck: This Streamlight ProTac 2L flashlight is fantastic.I’ve had mine for 2 years this month, and it’s just been great. No worries about it changing accidentally from one mode to the next with their 10-tap system. It’s getting darker out earlier and earlier, so having a flashlight with you is just handy. …

What Do You Think of Carry Optics These Days?

Thu, 10/26/2017 - 21:01

Nick How do you feel about carry optics these days? I’ve thought about trying it down the line, just because I’ve heard training with a dot has benefits for iron sight shooters. But between stories of rampant optic unreliability, the cost of getting another gun+optic/new upper+optic, and persistent confusion over who this division really serves, …
