Scared of the Boogeyman

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Recently, a well known instructor announced that he is banning AIWB from his classes. From my point of view -- as someone who has taught a lot of high velocity shooting to people who carry AIWB all the time -- this is silly. It's literally nothing more than fear of the unknown. Following ...

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.

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 ...

To Infinity, and Beyond!

Monday, April 20th, 2015

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 ...

Cleer EDC Pocket Kit

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Most of my friends (and I) tend to carry a full IFAK -- Individual First Aid Kit -- or two on our range bags for emergencies that hopefully will never happen while we're practicing. But as we see new emerging threats like the attacks in Paris and Nigeria, people are ...

There Are Many Like It

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 ...
