Upgrade When You Have a Reason to Upgrade

Recently a well known tactical trainer dude posted something on Facebook about having an XD pistol malfunction in his classes, and went on to talk about how he’s seen a lot of malfunctions from the XD pistols in his classes. (I don’t doubt his experience, at all) Of course, a bunch of folks came out of the woodwork defending the XD pistols, and other folks came into the comment thread bashing XDs, and even others …

H2O Fowl Farms – Tsgt. Adam Ginett Memorial

I just received notice that the annual Tsgt. Adam Ginett Memorial match will be on June 3rd at H2O Fowl Farms in Dunn, NC. I shot the match I think two years back, and maybe the first year it was held as well, and both times I’ve shot it, it’s been fantastic. If you’re an IDPA shooter, someone interested in shooting IDPA, or if you’re not an IDPA shooter but just want to support a …

Shooting On A Shoestring

One of the more common things I hear from people who want to get started in competitive shooting is that they don’t have the money. Before I get going on this topic, I want to make one thing very clear: If you’re trying to scratch together the money to eat, now is not the time to get started in competitive shooting. With that said, I don’t think being a regular competitive shooter has to cost …

The topic is unsolicited advice at matches. . For instance the guy that tries to pick apart random shooters match performance and tell them what …

Sig P320x5 is USPSA Production Legal Now

There’s been a bunch of consternation in the USPSA community over the past year or so about whether or not the Sig Sauer P320x5 would be made legal for Production division in USPSA. Personally, given that people like Bruce Gray, and Phil Strader were working on the project, and the late Team Sig were basically all shooting the P320 in Production, I didn’t think Sig would make a gun that wouldn’t be production legal. Doing …

Triangle Tactical – It’s been a fun 5 years…

Well friends, it’s been almost 5 years since I launched the Triangle Tactical podcast (the first episode aired 5/14/2012), and it’s been a pretty awesome ride.

However, it’s been 5 …

Things That Suck

There are some things in the shooting sports that just suck. Today, I talk about those things. What sucks for you? Let me know in the comments below this post! Anyways, here’s my list: Sub-machine gun matches It sounds so awesome, but at the one I observed, people were just spraying and praying, and as someone who embraces the DVC (Speed/Power/Accuracy) thing, it just didn’t do anything for me. Carnival stages I like hard shots. …
