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 ...

All or Nothing: The Press-Out

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

As anyone who has followed me here or on pistol-forum.com has to know, I'm a big fan of a technique called the press-out. So following up on last week's "All or Nothing: Unsighted Fire" I thought turnabout is fair play and so I'll examine the pros and cons of this ...
