Last month sometime I went to the WCSO website and filled out the online form and paid for the renewal through their website. At the end of the online session I had to schedule an appointment at the Sheriffs office …

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 …

Discounting the IDPA rules violations I had a great match. I shot fast, got my hits, and even had …

Raleigh Judge Grants Injunction Against NC Law Barring Permanent Residents from Obtaining CHPs

For several years now, I’ve been pretty outspoken about some of the changes that need to be made surrounding NC concealed carry law, and one of the things that I’ve always thought needed to be changed was that NC law did not allow the issuance of concealed handgun permits to people who are non US citizens.
