Recreational Shooters Lack the Data to Get Better

I’ve been getting back into cycling recently. In doing so, I’ve been spending some time on message boards, and subreddits relating to the topic to get caught up on things as I’ve been off the bike for about 7 years. I’ve noticed some interesting parallels between the cycling and shooting communities, but I’ve also noticed one big glaring difference: Almost all cyclists have data. I came across a thread on a road bike forum where …

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 …

A Lesson on Having Fun While Shooting

Osage Combatives wrote a great post on his Facebook page yesterday that I had to share here on the blog: Post by Triangle Tactical. Competition is fun, but make sure you’re getting enough enjoyment out of your shooting to keep you doing it for the long haul.

I’ve Got Some Work to Do

This morning I’ve been cruising through some old match videos trying to come up with a game plan of things I need to work on in dry fire, and I found something from an old Wake County Action Pistol match that I thought I’d share. Something I need to work on it practicing #dryfire from different positions. Look how I fumbled the draw, and then my plan went to pot and I hesitated while shooting …

Franks Fun Match – October 2014

On Sunday I shot Franks Fun Match at The Range in Oxford, NC. This was my first match with the “bullets out” Ghost mag pouches. I definitely need a lot more practice with them, but the configuration seems promising. Still waiting for scores to be posted, but I feel like I shot well on all of the stages. A few minor things like giving away a couple more points down than I should have, but …

What Happens When You Don’t Stop For A Squib?

Yesterday, Brandon at Concealed Nation published an article with the below video showing a shooter with a squib load during an IDPA match: (Video Link for Email/RSS Readers) In the video the shooter is able to stop shooting before he shot another round into the squib, which can have disasterous consequences. On Saturday when we were shooting at the PDHSC/Shoot2Live IDPA match, a friend had a squib in his 1911, and unfortuantely was not able …

Lessons from Shooting my CCW Rig in an IDPA Match

Earlier this evening I shot the PDHSC/Shoot2Live IDPA match in south Raleigh. I decided that today I would shoot my actual concealed carry setup in the match. Even though it’s a match tailored for concealed carry, I usually shoot IDPA with my Glock 34 from what is essentially a competition specific holster (even though it’s within IDPA’s rules, it’s not something I’d carry with outside of a shooting range.) The Gear: Pistol: Springfield XDs 9mm …

Goodbye M&P, Hello Glock 34

After talking about it for a number of years I finally picked up a Glock 34 to shoot in competition. I moved away from Glocks temporarily because I was having slide bite issues, and the new beavertail backstraps hadn’t been released yet for the Gen4 pistols. Now they are, and I’m back. I’m not a “Glock guy” (see Episode 24 of the podcast) but I have found that I prefer them over the M&P’s I’ve …
