Home Invasion Advice Derp

Oh boy, this one is a doozie. John was lucky because the intruder robbed him, but left him alive. Yeah, so lucky that he was only robbed, and not robbed and murdered. I guess I’m lucky that I’ve made it 29 years without being murdered too. If you come face to face with an intruder and you’re not prepared, lie down and do not look at them. Pretend to have a heart attack or breathing …

Larry Vickers Revives the RTF2 Glock Frame

This morning on Facebook, Larry Vickers announced that he, in partnership with Lipsey’s (a wholesale distributor) is coming out with a signature line of Glock pistols.

They will also come with a bunch of Vickers Tactical branded stuff (Vickers sights, mag release, slide stop, and baseplates). The pistols also feature “LAV” in the serial numbers for the …

It’s Not the Gun, It’s the Shooter

When talking to people about getting into competitive shooting, a common thing I hear it’s that they need to go buy a new gun before they get started. In a vast majority of cases though, they currently have a gun and gear that’s more than good enough to start. Case in point: The Wake County Action Pistol Matches Last Monday we shot the exact same stages that we shot on Wednesday. I shot Monday with …

I Need A Dropped/Offset Holster

Ben pointed this out to me from my match video from Sunday’s Fun Match. You’ll notice that the pistol is just beginning to clear the holster, and I’m all leaned over, shoulders crooked, etc. I suited up with my belt, holster, and pistol last night and spent some time dry firing in the garage while trying to keep my shoulders straight on the draw stroke. Unfortunately this particular holster sits a bit higher when it’s …

Franks Fun Match – October 2014

On Sunday I shot Franks Fun Match at The Range in Oxford, NC. This was my first match with the “bullets out” Ghost mag pouches. I definitely need a lot more practice with them, but the configuration seems promising. Still waiting for scores to be posted, but I feel like I shot well on all of the stages. A few minor things like giving away a couple more points down than I should have, but …

Question of the Day: .30-30 Lever Action Rifle for Home Defense?

While surfing the web earlier this morning I came across a forum post (I’d link to it, but I can’t find it now) where someone asked about using a .30-30 lever action rifle for home defense. I’ve always been a fan of the lever guns. My first gun that was actually mine was a Winchester 94 in .30-30, that my dad bought me for deer hunting. I’ve referred to it as the “poor man’s assault …

Dang Duck Hunting Disturbance

I received a couple text messages from my Dad this morning saying that it was a beautiful day in Northern Michigan to do some duck hunting. He went on in the next message to say that he didn’t get any ducks because someone landed an airplane in the middle of his decoys…
