North Carolina Concealed Handgun Permit Renewal

I’m finally set up with my new (renewed) Concealed Handgun Permit. This has been a long process, so here’s a rundown for those interested: March 25th – I received a letter in the mail from Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison stating that my permit was up for renewal, and that I should start the process soon.

USPSA Members: Look for your ballot this week!

Today I received my ballot in the mail for the USPSA Presidential election. If you’re a USPSA member, look for it, and PLEASE do a little research before you just pick a random name and send it back. Back in episode 139 of the podcast, Ben and I discussed this, and he tried to convince me that this race really matters. Today, I realized how much it matters. Check this out: Wouldn’t it be cool …

Farewell, Dudes

It appears the fellow gun podcasters, and the guys that I consider to be the OG’s of gun podcasts, the Gun Dudes, are hanging up their microphones after 340 episodes.  Long before I ever had the thought to start a podcast, I was a podcast listener. When I first started listening to podcasts, I listened to Jack Spirko’s The Survival Podcast, and The Gun Dudes. After recording over 180 episodes of my own shows, I …

Tacticool Derp: Tactical Footwear

I like flip flops. A lot. As soon as I get home from work every day, I toss my Red Wing’s aside, and basically refuse to put socks of laced shoes back on until it’s time to get ready for work again. I laugh a little inside every time I slide my flip flops on about something I read on a web forum a few years back. There was a discussion about every day carry, …

$6 To More Interesting Dryfire

Getting started with dryfire is super easy. Tape some scaled dryfire targets to the wall, clear your pistol, maybe put a par timer app on your phone, and go to town.

I’ve got a handful of pretty good classifiers in the 75-78% range, and I just need one more classifier above 75% to get my average into the A-class range. I started feeling really confident when my scores were landing where they needed to be to make A-class, which was awesome, however I think it was that confidence that …

Simple Self Defense: Lock Your Doors

I just came across this video, and watching it, and thinking about how long this guy was in the house is frightening. He just walked in, looked moderately harmless, but the caption on the videy says that he was found in the kitchen holding a steak knife. He’s lucky mama didn’t feel more threatened and give him both barrels. So this video is to say two things. One always lock your door. Number 2 this …
