Give your competitors emergency information!

I’m curious to know about the safety briefs at your local matches. Are they really a safety brief, or are they just announcement time? I’ve become pretty passionate about the fact that we need to have actual safety briefs at matches, because if someone gets hurt the procedures need to fall in place quickly, and there’s no time to delegate after the fact. The shooting sports are incredibly safe, because we have such strict safety …

Here’s a video about keeping a bunch of your data out of the hands of Google and Facebook. In just a couple weeks I’m already seeing less targeted ads on Facebook, and more general ads, and ads that are definitely mis-targeted at me, which is great. YouTube is becoming a hostile place for gun related channels, so ever since their last round of restrictions of pro-gun content a bunch of new websites have popped up …

So it’s April Fools day, but it’s also Easter, so a lot of the normal internet shenanigans for April 1st were a little toned down vs most years. However, USPSA pulled a great one on their official Instagram page this afternoon with this picture: This was pretty good, but I thought the best part was the absolute savage takedown in the comments in this exchange: “No” I don’t know who’s running the USPSA social media …
