Springfield/Warren 9mm 1911 Endurance Test: Report #5

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

9,962 rounds 4 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages 3 mags deadlined With a little over six weeks of concealed carry under my belt -- I know, bad pun -- how is the 1911 working out?

SOM for Real

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

follow the link for video: South Carolina Deputy shoots charging knife-wielding attacker A couple months ago I wrote about shooting on the move (SOM) and the importance of moving at a pace that matters. Sometimes merely sprinting (without getting hits) or shooting (while flat footed) isn't enough. The video linked above is a perfect ...

Monday, August 20th, 2012

The pistol-forum.com Drill of the Week takes a slightly different tack this week with Caleb "Gun Nuts" Gidding's 150rd IDPA Practice Session.  Contrary to the title, it's an excellent overall program for a short training session: draws, reloads, low% targets, and high% targets with multiple reps of everything so it's ...
