Hwansik Kim Talks USPSA Movement

Moving quickly around a USPSA stage, and keeping your muzzle pointed safely down range isn’t always the most intuitive thing to do when you’re trying to go fast. I thought this video from Walther Arms and Hwansik Kim was really good at illustrating some of the different techniques you can use to move quickly, while keeping your gun safely down range.

The “Peacock” Target Array is Stupid.

This picture took the Gunternet by storm last week, and tons and tons of people have been asking questions about it, praising it, or, like me, think it’s stupid. In the picture above, the targets appear to be USPSA targets, so let’s assume that this array was used at a USPSA match. In order for it to be legal, it would have to be a speed shoot, with a mandatory reload per rule 1.2.2.3 in …

  • Concealed Carry

With 49 states now allowing some form of concealed carry for citizens, and more and more passing “shall issue” laws every year, concealed carry of firearms has swept the nation. Americans are no longer allowing themselves to be victimized, and are instead standing their ground, and defending themselves from those who wish to do them harm. I’ve been carrying a concealed handgun for …
