Good time to hear from a legend!

Wyatt Earp: Frontier Marshal Wyatt Earp. 1848 – 1929 t “I was a fair hand with pistol, rifle, or shotgun, but I learned more about gunfighting from Tom Speer’s cronies during the summer of ’71 than I had dreamed was in the book. Those old-timers took their gunplay seriously, which was natural under the conditions in which they lived. Shooting, to them, was considerably more than aiming at a mark and pulling a trigger.

We need a shield!

I’m going to tell you something this week that you probably already know. The gun community right now needs to build up a shield. What I mean by this is that we need to build an effective defense against the legislation that is coming from the left and even from the right. Too often I hear guys talking about making their stand when gun grabbers come for their firearms. Often the battle cry of the…

Train

Before we talk about anything else it is important to say that when you are dry firing you must check all of the guns you will be using, all of the magazines, and ensure that there is no ammo anywhere near you. Safety first always. This week is one of those times where we have to think about our preparation. Unfortunately last weeks post became very real as we saw another tragedy take place in…

Should you mill your slide?

We may be biased in talking about this topic because not only do we mill slides but we love shooting Glocks that have slide work, so don’t expect too many negative points. We will try to be objective as we talk about it though.  The ability to mill your slide is a big advantage to buying a Glock pistol. Glocks are so simple in the design of their slide that you can do pretty much…

Let’s talk about Control.

     Shooting fast is important but maybe sensationalized in the current gun culture. We see it every where from John Wick to Taran Tactical and countless 3 gun competitors across all platforms. Elite shooters can burn down targets at lightning speed with great accuracy throughout the entire drill. How do they do this? I don’t know about you but when I start to speed up I see a definite decrease in accuracy the faster…
