Must Listen: The St. James Massacre

A couple weeks ago in the “Plug of the Week” on the podcast we plugged Mike Seeklander’s new podcast called the American Warrior Show. In the most recent episode Mike interviews a man named Charl Van Wyk who took on 3 active shooters. Van Wyk had a 5 shot .38spcl revolver, and he was successful in ending the attack on the church against shooters with automatic rifles, grenades, and bombs. “Violence is the immoral use …

3-Gun Dump Buckets

Over the weekend a video appeared (and subsequently seems to have been scrubbed from the internet) of a competitor safely dumping his pistol in a dump bucket that was resting on a blue barrel during a 3-gun stage, and as he moved from the position the dump bucket fell off of the barrel allowing the pistol to tumble out, earning the shooter a disqualification from the match. In response to the first video, the folks …

Slow is Slow, and Smooth is Smooth

Herky jerky is slow, and slow is slow, but fast is smooth. Several weeks back the old Tactical Compact Sedan decided that she had rolled her last mile, and blew up in my driveway (dropped a valve on cylinder #3) and the next day I replaced it with a new car which happens to have a manual transmission. I hadn’t driven a manual transmission in about 15 years, so over the past several weeks I’ve …

Question for Competitive Shooters: Do You Carry to the Range?

Miguel posted an article about a doctor that was involved in a defensive shooting this past weekend, who per some reports was on his way to the Mississippi Classic USPSA match. When the victim was attacked, his pistol was in his range bag. Luckily he was able to get to the pistol and get to work on the bad guys shortly thereafter. This brings me to my question: Do you roll up to a competition …

Everytown Not Telling the Whole Story on NC Background Checks

Everytown has recently begun to play the following ad on TV here in NC: The trouble with the ad is that they aren’t being completely honest about background checks. The ad makes it seem that if HB562 were to pass, there would no longer be any background checks for handgun purchases in NC. Unfortunately for Everytown, background checks for purchasing a handgun from a dealer is a federal law, which isn’t affected by the North …

Video of an Armed Home Invasion

Frightening stuff here. The bad guys clearly had very bad intentions after arming themselves and getting cabling (presumably to tie up the homeowners). What scares me is how long these guys were able to move around inside the home unnoticed. Also, good on the homeowner and his girlfriend for being armed, although I personally wouldn’t sleep in bed with a firearm in my bed, I prefer to just have it handy. (H/T r/firearms)
