JUNK SCIENCE: Turn And Draw

Mon, 06/19/2017 - 12:46

The turn and draw is a pretty standard start position for competitive shooting matches. Generally in a turn and draw, you’ll start facing up range, wrists above shoulders, and then on the buzzer you’ll turn then draw your pistol once it’s inside the 180*, and start engaging targets. The conventional wisdom about the turn and …

Shoot Everything

Mon, 06/12/2017 - 18:52

If you’re new to the shooting sports, don’t settle on whatever shooting sport you decide to shoot first is. Go shoot a bunch of different disciplines. The shooting sports are like high school cliques. If you go to IDPA, you’ll hear people talk junk about those USPSA gamers. If you shoot USPSA, someone will talk …

Get A Load Of This Garbage…

Tue, 06/06/2017 - 16:56

The IPSC Rifle World Shoot is happening right now in Russia. Team USA has sent a bunch of accomplished rifle shooters to compete, and it seems like most everyone made it there without issue. That is, except for Kuan Watson. It’s sad to me that he was flying around the world, to compete literally on the …

Gun Makers, Are We Really Doing This?

Tue, 06/06/2017 - 08:25

News broke yesterday that Rock Island Armory was coming out with a polymer 9mm double stack pistol, the SF9. Yes, the SF9. No, not the SR9 or PF9 or RP9 or the TP9, or even the CM9, PM9, or CW9. Not even the SD9 or AR9, VP9 or BP9. But the SF9. I have to say, …

The Biggest Problem With Advancing Gun Rights

Mon, 06/05/2017 - 20:26

Long story short, I believe the biggest barrier that we face to advancing gun rights isn’t politicians, but swaying the vast majority of the general public who are indifferent, or on the fence about guns. What I’ve found is, if you’re just a normal person who likes to shoot, and talks about it in a …

Thu, 06/01/2017 - 22:16

Tomorrow on the Q&A Show: Live Match Video Diagnosis

Wed, 05/31/2017 - 07:37

One of the more common questions I hear from folks just starting out in competitive shooting is that they don’t know what to look for in their match video.  Tomorrow on the Facebook Live Q&A podcast I’m going to be doing a live match video diagnosis based on my match video from Sunday’s USPSA match. …

Upgrade When You Have a Reason to Upgrade

Mon, 05/22/2017 - 20:41

Recently a well known tactical trainer dude posted something on Facebook about having an XD pistol malfunction in his classes, and went on to talk about how he’s seen a lot of malfunctions from the XD pistols in his classes. (I don’t doubt his experience, at all) Of course, a bunch of folks came out …

Sun, 05/21/2017 - 14:01

I just received notice that the annual Tsgt. Adam Ginett Memorial match will be on June 3rd at H2O Fowl Farms in Dunn, NC. I shot the match I think two years back, and maybe the first year it was held as well, and both times I’ve shot it, it’s been fantastic. If you’re an …

Yeah, you’re exactly right when you read the title of this post and said to yourself “Wasn’t it already legal?” No, it wasn’t, but it seems like everyone and their brother has been shooting them in Production division for a while anyways.

Shooting On A Shoestring

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 21:03

One of the more common things I hear from people who want to get started in competitive shooting is that they don’t have the money. Before I get going on this topic, I want to make one thing very clear: If you’re trying to scratch together the money to eat, now is not the time …
