I’ve seen it stated repeatedly that the NC Sheriffs’ Association’s opposition to removing the Pistol Purchase Permit system is about revenue for the department. I find this claim difficult to believe because they derive so very little money from the permits, especially compared to the manpower required to actually run the system. To put it in perspective, it costs about the same to get a PPP requiring a state-level background check and a Federal NICS …Read More »

What’s crazy about this, is that the files from DefCad have been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times, and taking …Read More »
Training on Steel
It might be an oversimplification to say that steel is for speed and paper is for accuracy, but it’s close enough that I’ll call it a rule of thumb. When you go to the range to train, which is as simple as having a goal aside from “shoot 100 rounds”, part of figuring out how to achieve that goal is working on the right skills on the right types of targets.

Why me? Why now?
I got an email today from a lifelong family friend who I’ve recently been introducing to shooting, in part sparked by his confessed ignorance about guns, their operation and role in society. I’ve managed to get him and his wife hooked, but received an email today scheduling another shooting trip, and lamenting, in part: I have to admit I’m feeling a bit frustrated by the fact that we seem to have chosen the worst possible …Read More »
