One of the USPSA topics that keeps coming up, is that folks want USPSA to change Production division to have 15rd magazines instead of the current 10rd magazines, to mirror IPSC Production division. For the longest time I’ve been adamantly against it, mostly because I just don’t want the division to be changed, because I don’t like change. After doing this video, I’m more ambivalent about it. I do think the change would do a …Read More »
Use a Mirror for Adding Distance in Dryfire
Ben just might be a genius. Like most of you I assume, adding distance to my dryfire isn’t the easiest thing to do, because my house is small. With a 1/3 scale target, I can get a scaled 25y if I stand at the very back of my garage and make use of every inch. That isn’t great for practicing the further distance targets much. I have some 1/6 and 1/12 scale dryfire targets, but …Read More »
USPSA Members: Look for your ballot this week!
Today I received my ballot in the mail for the USPSA Presidential election. If you’re a USPSA member, look for it, and PLEASE do a little research before you just pick a random name and send it back. Back in episode 139 of the podcast, Ben and I discussed this, and he tried to convince me that this race really matters. Today, I realized how much it matters. Check this out: Wouldn’t it be cool …Read More »

$6 To More Interesting Dryfire
Getting started with dryfire is super easy. Tape some scaled dryfire targets to the wall, clear your pistol, maybe put a par timer app on your phone, and go to town. I’ve been practicing with a handful of dryfire targets taped to my garage door for a few years now, but as I’ve gotten to the point of wanting to work on more specific things (like keeping the gun up while moving into a position …Read More »

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 …Read More »
USPSA Members: Great Deals on Remington Firearms Until May 30th
Like… nearly 50% off just because you’re a USPSA member. Pretty cool, although the guns on the list aren’t the greatest for USPSA, unless you want to shoot Singlestack. Either way, it’s cool of Remington to do it, maybe once production gets scaled up on the re-branded Para stuff they’ll have some deals on some doublestack 2011’s or something so I can get a Limited pistol… hint hint… Full details here. Pricing list here.Read More »
Things New Shooters Say At Their First Match:
“How were my hits? Good? If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a hundred times. On the surface it sounds like a perfectly logical thing to ask, but really if a shooter is watching his sights and paying attention to what he is doing, he should know where his hits were. I had a new shooter say something a while back at one of the Wake County Action Pistol matches about the lighting being …Read More »
A Note for Practiscore Users
Going through some of my notes from the last SWGC USPSA match, and I was reminded of a situation that occurred at the match. On one stage Ben was running the Practiscore tablet (A kindle running the scoring software for the match) and Chris Tilley was shooting a stage from behind a barricade with his open gun. When Chris transitioned to the side of the barricade that Ben and I were standing on, each of his …Read More »
