Strategy Differences for Major/Minor Power Factor – 158

Ben talks about some of the USPSA strategy differences that he’s noticed coming from shooters who shoot Major power factor, and those who shoot Minor power factor. Turns out, when accepting advice from another shooter on a certain stage or strategy, you should weigh whether or not they are shooting Major or Minor power factor, because if you’re shooting something different, you may want a different strategy.

The News

The LA city council has passed a un-enforcable safe storage law for the city. People should store their guns safely, but government shouldn’t mandate it. It’s bad law.

A hunter in Indiana’s dog stepped on their shotgun and discharged it into the hunters foot. Dog’s name? Trigger.

There’s an interesting new pistol due to hit the market this month. It’s called the Honor Guard, and it looks surprisingly good, coming from a company that we’ve never heard of before. I think it looks like a love child between a S&W Shield and a Caracal. Takes Glock sights, which is genius.

Gear That Doesn’t Suck

Streamlight ProTac 1L

This is the light that Ben’s been running for a while now as part of his EDC, and the light that he’s planning to run in all of the fall/winter night matches that we’ll be shooting. It’s small, but not too small, bright enough, and it’s way cheaper than a lot of the competition. It’s a good piece of gear, whether you’re looking for a basic EDC light, or something to shoot matches with.

  1. Gripping the gun hard is really a difficult thing (for me), and I haven’t made much progress during dry fire. I think it’s because it’s the first activity I’ve done where a hard grip is useful. Pretty much everything else — casting a fly rod, typing, drawing, driving, whatever — benefits from a relaxed grip.

    So even if I begin a stage with a hard grip, I relax out of it pretty quickly. If you guys come up with a solution, I’d love to hear it.
