Q&A: Is my Glock 19 holding me back? Heard any Production rumors?

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 49:18 — 33.9MB) | EmbedSubscribe: Android | RSS | MoreBryan What is a good age to start a junior shooter?

Q&A: Any Tips for Shooting IDPA with a Weapon Mounted Light?

Mike asked this question a while back and I answered it on a Q&A podcast, but I wanted to re-address it in a video format, because it makes it a little easier to understand. Do you have any advice for shooting a night match (IDPA if it matters) with a weapon mounted light? I have been turning it on with my trigger finger after I draw it but wonder if it would be better to …

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 34:30 — 31.6MB) | EmbedSubscribe: Android | RSS | MoreFor a long time I’ve wondered if the expensive race holsters that hold the gun just by the trigger guard are really worth the money, so that’s what I’ve decided to find out for this episode. So, here’s what I did: I setup a 10″ steel plate at 10y. I tested both holsters with 50 draws in the …

This week on the podcast: JUNK SCIENCE!

This is one that I’ve been really excited about doing for a while. I was originally going to do this with a knockoff CR Speed WSMII holster that I’ve had kicking around for a while, but then I decided to put it on the back burner until I could get my hands on a real-deal race holster. If I’m gonna do it, might as well do it right! So, anyways, this week I’m going to …

Ruger wants input on an IDPA gun

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: a Ruger SR9 with no safety, a 5″ barrel, and a decent set of adjustable sights, and forward cocking serrations, and hell, might as well add an optic cut, would make a killer beginner competition gun.

The Dumbest Thing Glock’s Ever Done!

Glock discontinues RTF2 and fishgill slide serrations – Dumbest thing Glock’s ever done! Glock slightly changes the texture of the finish on their …
