Rant.

My political position as a gun owner won’t surprise anyone but… Why does anyone need an AR15?  You are not entitled to an answer to that question.  The U.S. Constitution says I can have one or not, my choice.  Just like I’m not entitled to ask why the Tide Pod eating Millennial wants to complain…

“It doesn’t work for me.”

Be careful with the excuse “it doesn’t work for me.”  My good friend Steve says “we don’t all wear the same size shoes.” The techniques, tactics, and tools we use for our personal protection need to fit.  Things like training, personal experience, fitness level, and a whole laundry list of details will determine the specifics…

Shotgun

Catching up here.  Two weeks ago I was coaching a tactical shotgun class, it’s been awhile.  Reminded me that it is still a viable personal protection option.  It has lost some of it’s sex appeal with the proliferation of the AR family but, WOW! I don’t see giving up it’s place in my arsenal anytime…

I can’t imagine!

Appendix Carry

The following is not in favor of or against appendix carry, but rather an observation of the argument against it. I try to listen when knowledgeable people discuss tactics and techniques, I’ve learned a great deal because of someone else’s perspective on a given topic.  Likewise, I will call BS when I hear it.  When…

Stir the pot.

I posted a video yesterday of Rob Leatham discussing the 9 Vs. 45.  I posted it mostly to stir the pot.  It’s an argument I learned early in my shooting education.  Fortunately I also learned early “only hits count”.  Evidence tells us handguns are lousy fight stoppers.  They are useful because they are portable and…

45 vs 9

Too many people want to dismiss Rob because he’s a competition shooter.  He’s right. https://gunsandgeardaily.com/rob-leatham-settles-the-45acp-vs-9mm-debate/#comment-26 Update:  This has caused the 9mm guys to lose their mind.
