Experienced Shooters Have a Duty to Help New Shooters

Tue, 08/22/2017 - 21:07

I definitely think that experienced shooters have a duty to help new shooters at their first match.  Before the stage brief is read on your first stage, ask if there are any new shooters on your squad. Once everyone knows who the brand new shooters are, and eliminates the concern about giving advice to someone …

Hwansik Kim Talks USPSA Movement

Sat, 08/12/2017 - 09:24

Moving quickly around a USPSA stage, and keeping your muzzle pointed safely down range isn’t always the most intuitive thing to do when you’re trying to go fast. I thought this video from Walther Arms and Hwansik Kim was really good at illustrating some of the different techniques you can use to move quickly, while …

What Do You Do When a Range Officer Doesn’t Do His Job?

Mon, 07/31/2017 - 19:05

During the live chat for last week’s Triangle Tactical Q&A Live show Austin asked a question about what to do when a Range Officer isn’t doing his job? He asked (I’m paraphrasing here) but basically, what do you do when the RO on your squad lets a shooter slide for breaking the 180? In the …

The “Peacock” Target Array is Stupid.

Mon, 07/24/2017 - 10:00

This picture took the Gunternet by storm last week, and tons and tons of people have been asking questions about it, praising it, or, like me, think it’s stupid. In the picture above, the targets appear to be USPSA targets, so let’s assume that this array was used at a USPSA match. In order for …

The Herpiest Derp

Thu, 07/20/2017 - 07:31

Recently on Facebook something came across my feed where a random person was spouting off about how folks who carry concealed shouldn’t wear flip flops outside the home, because, presumably it makes it so you can’t fight or something like that. I carry most all the time I can, and I do it with a …

This was asked in the live chat for the last Triangle Tactical Q&A podcast, and I didn’t have time to get to it in the live show. Anyways, I think it’s definitely worth it to get the cardboard targets. When I priced them out, they were ever so slightly more expensive than paper targets, however, …
