How Do The Professionals Prepare For A Match?

A new (to me at least) YouTube channel called 2AlphaGear posted this video recently where they ask the professional shooters about the number 1 thing they do to prepare for a match: The number one answer: gear checks. Randi Rogers mentioned getting in some dry fire before heading out to the range, but for the most part all of the shooters interviewed talked about checking gear instead of trying to get in tons of last …

SureStrike Laser Ammo Review

A few months back the folks at Carolina Shooters Club asked me if I’d be interested in trying out some “SureStrike Laser Ammo”. I’ll give anything a try once, so I’ve been playing with it for a while, and finally posted my review of the product over at CSC. Bottom Line: Great for working on fundamentals with my wife in a low-stress environment (our living room) Not so great for competition related dry-fire as my …

Strong Hand Only Dry Fire Day

Sucks. Yeaup, that’s a blister from the bottom of the trigger guard on my middle finger. I’ve heard people call this “Glock finger”, but I’ve had it happen with any pistol I’ve trained with seriously. Glock, M&P, whatever, it doesn’t matter. I guess I need to work on building up a better callous there…

Video: Dry Fire Basics

Ben shot a quick video about the basics of dry fire. After we did Episode 66 of the podcast, we received even more questions about what constructive dry fire actually looks like. This will be the first in a series of videos Ben is doing about dry fire. Notice that he isn’t just pulling the trigger on the first shot and re-cocking the hammer for the next. He’s dropping the hammer, and then you can …

The downsides of dry fire

This week, on the podcast, Facebook, and blog, we’ve been extolling the virtues of dry fire for making you a more gooder shooter and overall raising your effectivitiness, but we would be remiss if we didn’t cover, at least in passing, the serious negative consequences of regular, focused dry fire. Sure spending a mere fifteen minutes a day with just you, the target, and the gun, and a holster, and a timer will be a …

Dry Fire – 66

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 1:05:31 — 45.0MB) | EmbedSubscribe: Android | Google Podcasts | RSS | MoreWhat is dry fire? It’s not sitting on the couch watching TV, unless you are only working on your trigger press. Focus on what you are doing, and put up a target (see if you can snag an old one from a match) You can also print out a 1/3 scale target to use indoors …

Match Review from RRRC

Since I’ll be missing this week’s podcast due to 1) being in Virginia and 2) being replaced by the awesome Humble Mechanic, I couldn’t help wrapping up my thoughts on the RRRC USPSA match this weekend. Before we roll the tape, a little back story: three weeks ago, I shot the Sir Walter Gun Club USPSA match in Creedmoor, NC and sucked. Bad. The culmination of it all was the classifier stage where I was …

A Free App to Help With Dry Fire (IPSC Shot Timer)

If you follow the Triangle Tactical Facebook page, you may have seen a post recently about how I am getting back into a dry fire routine after falling off the wagon for a few months. One reason that a lot of people don’t do constructive dry fire practice, is that most shooters (myself included) don’t own a shot timer. Having a timer, with a ‘Par Time’ function is crucial to constructive practice. As I mentioned …
