Dry Fire – 66

What is dry fire?

  • It’s not sitting on the couch watching TV, unless you are only working on your trigger press.
  • Focus on what you are doing, and put up a target (see if you can snag an old one from a match)

There was a murder/suicide at a shopping mall in Maryland recently. The media is again pushing this as some sort of a mass shooting, but it wasn’t.

Hardcore History Podcast with Dan Carlin

It’s not a gun podcast, but it seems like everyone who likes our show, also likes Hardcore History, so you should check it out. I found the ‘Wrath of the Kahns’ series quite captivating, and I’m not really a big history buff.

Tip of the Week:

Short stages aren’t the time to “burn it down”. There’s very little room to excel and lots of room to fail. “You can’t win the match here but you can lose it here.”
