Glock Trigger Pull Experiments

Monday, April 27th, 2015

I'm currently breaking in two Glock gen4 19s. One will eventually become my everyday carry pistol. The other will serve as my primary training gun. Because of the issues with my arm/grip/finger strength, I am making a lot of compromises regarding trigger pull weight that I wouldn't have in the past. ...

Cleaning Guns by Todd Green

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

I know. Cleaning Guns by Todd Green is like How to Have a Successful Marriage by Tiger Woods. I clean my pistols every 5,000 rounds or so whether they need it or not. Someone at the NRA Headquarters Range turned me on to this little plastic doodad a while back and ...

Some recent ... let's call them discussions over on my Facebook page have once again reminded me that some people don't understand what training issue really means. All too often it is used as a catch-all to blame anything and everything on the shooter. Had an accident with a gun with a two ...

Monday, April 6th, 2015

I'm in the process of putting together a photo album of the Burton/Heirloom 1911 Commander that shows all the little things that make it different & special compared to all the other Commanders out there. That got me thinking about the Glock 19 I was carrying. Here's what makes it different ...

All or Nothing: Red Dots

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

A never-ending topic of discussion these days is the pistol mounted MRDS (mini red dot sight) that is becoming more popular among shooters. As with so many things, it's yet another "All or Nothing," with too many people believing they're best or worst under all circumstances for all shooters. And ...

Clickgate

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Every time someone visits my site, I make a few pennies. That's what those ads on the right do. After a recent explosive "debate" on my Facebook page I have discovered the fastest way to becoming a millionaire. Glocks are not perfect. They have some design features which are not necessarily ideal. Some ...

War Belt Meets Dress Belt, pt2

Friday, February 13th, 2015

A little over a year ago I wrote about a belt system that a friend developed. It's specifically designed for folks who need to carry a lot of gear in a low-profile environment. The manufacturer, FirstSpear, has updated the belt's web page and included some great information and a video specifically ...
