Recreational Shooters Lack the Data to Get Better

I’ve been getting back into cycling recently. In doing so, I’ve been spending some time on message boards, and subreddits relating to the topic to get caught up on things as I’ve been off the bike for about 7 years. I’ve noticed some interesting parallels between the cycling and shooting communities, but I’ve also noticed one big glaring difference: Almost all cyclists have data. I came across a thread on a road bike forum where …

Cyclists: How do you carry?

Cycling was my primary hobby for a long time before I got into shooting. I reluctantly gave it up about 7 years ago when I was having some issues with numbness in my hands that I couldn’t deal with. I’ve decided to pick it back up since I’ve lost about 65lbs, figuring I might not experience the hand numbness issues now that there’s less of me. Way back on the podcast we answered a question …

Sitting on the Patio at Starbucks Tonight…

And I witnessed two knuckleheads squaring off in what began as a parking misunderstanding and was quickly escalating into people screaming, pounding on their cars, and was probably about to get physical any time. It all started when one family finished up their meal at the restaurant next door, and got into their SUV. As they were backing out, a pickup truck pulled up, and blocked the SUV from going forward. Other cars pulled in …

First impression: Lee Auto Drum Powder Measure

I’ve been loading ammo on my Lee Turret Press for about a year and a half now, and I’ve loaded somewhere north of 10,000 rounds of 9mm on it. That whole time I’ve been using the Lee Auto-Disk powder measure. In the beginning I was using Unique powder for 9mm, and I didn’t have any complaints with the Auto-Disk. It threw charges that were accurate enough, and it worked fine. However, a few months back …

Pat McNamara on “Scan and Assess”

There is so much of this in the shooting world. “Scan and assess” “Don’t look at your holster” “Don’t watch your reload” “Don’t let your finger leave the trigger on the reset” There is so much of this in the shooting world. “Scan and assess” “Don’t look at your holster” “Don’t watch your reload” “Don’t let your finger leave the trigger on the reset” Posted by Triangle Tactical on Thursday, September 17, 2015

Use a Mirror for Adding Distance in Dryfire

Ben just might be a genius. Like most of you I assume, adding distance to my dryfire isn’t the easiest thing to do, because my house is small. With a 1/3 scale target, I can get a scaled 25y if I stand at the very back of my garage and make use of every inch. That isn’t great for practicing the further distance targets much. I have some 1/6 and 1/12 scale dryfire targets, but …

Want a Triangle Tactical Sticker? Here’s How to Get One:

First and foremost: the stickers aren’t for sale. If you want one, you’ll have to earn it. I’m really excited about these stickers, so I went out and bought a book of stamps and I’m going to mail off stickers to the bunch of people that send me voicemails for the Q&A podcast until I run out of stamps. Here’s how to get a sticker: Record a voicemail question for the Q&A podcast. You can …
