Last week I was in Northern Michigan and I had a conversation with my Uncle about competitive shooting. He said that shooting a stage himself, and then having a friend shoot the stage after him wouldn’t really interest him, but if there were some type of “man on man” type comeptition where more than one person was on the firing line at a time and they were shooting to both complete a goal against each other at the same time, that he would be interested in getting involved in a competition like that.
Gear that Doesn’t Suck
At the H2O Fowl Farms IDPA match this weekend it was standard North Carolina summer weather: HOT.
A friend showed up to the range with a instant canopy for our squad which was completely awesome to give us some shade between shooting and pasting. Here’s a Coleman one on Amazon that you might want to consider for your range trips during the summer months.
Apparently MTV has an NC based reality show (I had no idea) and the star of the show posted a picture online of her baby in it’s bed, her man feeding the baby, and a pistol on her nightstand. People online apparently lost their freaking minds over the picture, not realizing that the child is an infant, clearly not capable of gaining access to the firearm. The picture, and her interview with TMZ are available here. Watch the video, it’s worth it.
Sig Sauer is sponsoring a top fuel dragster. On the surface this isn’t really much of a news story, but it’s just another way to show that Sig is really in touch with shooters. From the development of all the cool silencers they’re making, to the newly announced Sig shooting team, to the P320 that’s the new hotness, it really seems like they’re killing it lately.
This episode was sponsored by The Blue Bullets. They just announced some new bulk discounts, and shipping deals that you should check out if you’re looking to buy some new bullets for competitive shooting. Don’t forget, you can save even more with the code “triangle” at checkout. They’re Glock friendly, Open gun friendly, and they’re made right here in NC (but offer free shipping on most orders) to anywhere in the US.
Plug of the Week
Andrew Tuhoy of Vuurwapen Blog has launched a new podcast. The first episode is about the proposed ITAR regulations on the restriction of firearm “technical data” on the internet. It’s a frightening topic, and one that needs to be shared. You can check out Andrew’s blog post about it here, and his show is in iTunes here.
