Getting to Work Works: Shoot2Live IDPA Match Video Review

After the February 2015 Sir Walter Gun Club USPSA match, I decided that I needed to work on getting my butt moving during matches. I’ve been consistently dry firing since that match, and most all of the drills I’ve been doing have involved movement. Things like getting into position, leaving positions, reloads while moving from one side of the box to another, etc. Last night was the first match I’ve shot since the SWGC USPSA …

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 …

Motivation

I haven’t been seeing a whole lot of progression in my shooting recently, because, frankly, I haven’t been practicing. I haven’t been practicing because I haven’t been able to shoot a USPSA match since… ah… May? When I shoot competitions, I really care about the USPSA matches, and most everything else is just for fun. The closest things I’ve been getting to USPSA recently are the classifier stages that Ben has been designing into the …

Dry Fire Protip #1 – Magazine Baseplate Retainers

During the summer months I brought my dry fire practice into the living room, and lined up my targets across the top of the TV. This worked great, but I wasn’t able to move as much as I would have liked, so now that the weather has cooled down a bit, I spent most of the evening last night getting the garage all set up again for dry fire. All summer I just used my …

Ep.107 with Steve Anderson will release Monday Evening

Ben had the opportunity to sit down with Steve Anderson (yes, that Steve Anderson) earlier today and recorded Episode 107 with him. I was hoping to get the file and have it ready to go for the normal Sunday night episode release, but alas the interwebs aren’t cooperating. Stay tuned though, I’m sure it’ll be a good episode! In the mean time, you have 7 days left to get your Triangle Tactical shirts…
