I am constantly pushing myself to become better with my firearms. These days that involves trying new things and pushing boundaries. Recently, I passed the Texas License to Carry Test with my eyes closed, and I even did it from the holster to increase the difficulty. Before I passed the test, I did some dry […]
The gears of the anti-gunners turn quite quickly. A judge had quite the impressive ruling tossing out California’s magazine limit ban. But then an activist judge reinstated the ban within the week. Such is how the anti-gunners go. They act quickly and push their agenda using the excuse of “safety” even though nowhere in the […]
They say “speed is fine, but accuracy is final” – and it’s quite true. If you shoot soon and fast, but don’t hit anything, then you’re just wasting ammo – and if it’s a defensive situation, you’re creating potential collateral damage. Accuracy is paramount. But at the same time, accuracy without speed is just as […]
Anti-gunners keep on talking about saving lives – while proposing methods that do not save lives and instead leave law abiding citizens defenseless. Please PLEASE contact your representatives and urge them to oppose all upcoming anti-gun bills. Contacting your representative takes a few minutes and is quite easy. You can even call after hours and […]
I’ve said it before and I will say it many more times in the future – a gun is not a magical self defense wand. A gun won’t fix every situation and a gun can make things worse if you don’t know what you’re doing with it. This is why knowing how to use your […]
This past weekend I hit the range over at KR Training for Defensive Pistol Skills 2, Advanced Training 2 Scenarios, and Low Light Shooting 1. All classes focused on improving conceal carry competency. It was a lot of fun, especially Advanced Training 2 Scenarios, which involved running through a shoot house and even shooting through […]
Officer Actually Shoots a Suspect in the Knee to End the Threat After exhausting their de-escalation options, this officer chose to shoot the armed suspect in the knee to incapacitate the threat rather than shoot for center mass. Do you think he was justified? Anti-gunners are active Anti-gunners are getting active, pushing for more anti-gun […]
Anti-Gunners Threaten to Shoot Washington Sheriffs Who Won’t Enforce Gun-Control Pro-gun sheriffs choose to not enforce anti-gun laws. So anti-gunners threaten to shoot those sheriffs. Do they not see the hypocrisy of their own words? Rape Survivor Tells Congress Gun Control Left Her Helpless While some people issue threats to sheriffs for not enforcing anti-gun […]
Comedian Mugged at Gunpoint in DC, Rethinks His Gun Control Stance It’s oh so common that when someone is the victim of a violent crime, it causes that lightbulb to go off and they seek ways to protect themselves. I’m just glad this guy didn’t get hurt to learn his lesson. Lessons from Jared Reston’s […]

Gear and Hypocrisy The anti-gun movement loves to have “rules for thee and not for me.” This newsletter features two anti-gun politicians who contradict themselves in a rather big way. As for the new gear, the military is, unfortunately, being a little tight lipped on the new optics and new military caliber. While the military has […]
A handgun isn’t a magical self defense wand. It requires skill to use, not only when it comes to shooting fast and accurate, but also when to engage a threat and when to stop engaging. A threat might end after two shots, or the threat might keep on going like the Energizer Bunny. Speaking of […]
I very much consider myself to always be a student. There is simply too much to learn in the world of self defense and firearms competition. It's one of the reasons why I've thrown myself so hard into this world - there's so much to learn and explore.
Join me several times a week on my journey as I write about things I learn or about things my students ask me.
I hate spam just as much as you do - I will never sell your info.
