South Carolina: There’s a Snake in Your Grass

I haven’t seen something so stupid in a piece of gun legislation in a very long time. I literally jumped off the couch when I read it.

I like the newest IDPA proposed rules, a lot, mostly.

Listen to the podcast: So a bunch of text about the newest IDPA rules appeared in my inbox, and on a few different forums and discussion boards a couple days ago. The sources I got the text from are credible, in my opinion. The text talks about what the new IDPA rulebook will be for 2017 now that the comment period has passed. This will be our rulebook for the next 5 years. No clarifications …

3 Lessons from Competitive Shooting

Listen to the Podcast Just a few things I’ve learned from competitive shooting over the years: If you want to get better, stop chasing the newest, latest, greatest.

I’m super cheap, so in the beginning I tried to make all my own gear. I spent …

I’d just go to the range and shoot. When …
