The “Muscle Memory” Shooting Fallacy

Over the last few years I’ve run into guys who advocate muscle memory shooting (or point shooting), and as soon as they do I try to keep from rolling my eyes.  What they claim to be able to do is draw and fire their pistol accurately without using the sights.  Some have told me they …

DIY: Night Sight Installation

Allow me to provide some background before getting into the meat of this post.  I don’t go to the movies that often because I generally despise large crowds and paying ridiculous amounts of money for butter laden popcorn (although it is delicious).  I do make an effort to go when a decent movie comes out, …

Rifle Slings: Practical, Impractical, Obsolete

I suppose rifle slings are like concealed carry pistol calibers, everyone has their favorite selection and can justify their choice in at least 3 paragraphs.  Just like pistol calibers (and probably even more so) the choices in rifle slings are far and wide, with so many configurations/materials/attachment points you can usually walk through 3 or …

So you want a MAN’s gun?

If you’ve been following this blog for more than a month you’ll know that I’m a Glock “fanboy.”  I have makes and models of other pistols but love my Glocks.  My wife and I both carry Glocks as our primary CCW platform and I’d estimate that I spend 90% of my time on the range …

Guns: Now Is The Time To Buy!

I usually check Armslist.com a few times a week, just to see if there are any guns on there which interest me.  Constantly checking the site and going through pages of rifle, pistol and ammunition ads have allowed me to monitor available in inventory as well as pricing.  I’ve come to the following conclusion: If …

Home Defense Shotgun Update

Some recent updates on my Mossberg Home Defense Shotty.  If you watched the video I produced you’ll remember that the ATI Components fit awesome with the exception of the new forend (not compatible with my specific model).  I wanted to mount my Streamlight via the ATI rail system which came with their forend but instead …

3D Printing, Gun Building Parties Are Legal Alternatives For Enthusiasts

By Zach Hunters and other firearms enthusiasts have been anxiously watching federal regulators’ every move when it comes to potential new gun control measures. Though Congress defeated a bill in April that would have required more extensive background checks on all firearms purchases, the debate is far from over. The White House, in early June, …

Realistic goals when training your family to shoot

I love to shoot and I don’t mind practicing so that I can get better.  I actually went shooting a few days ago and noticed my reloads were not as efficient as they should be.  So before going out to the range again I’ve decided to slightly adjust a few techniques, go through several hundred …

The Takedown Dilemma: Henry, Ruger or Marlin?

Henry AR7 US Survival Rifle

By The Maj When it comes to anything labeled “Survival”, the market place has been experiencing a bit of a boom as of late.  When the market place couples “Survival” with “Firearm”, the boom seems to go nuclear in an instant.  Such has been the case with many of the less expensive takedown rifles in …

Considering the VZ 58 as a Survival Gun

VZ58

By Georges Z. Fahmy – Senshido International We all heard the screeching noises from the ever-ending debate between AR and AK aficionados: the former yelling about the AK being uncomfortable to shoot, inaccurate, and “So Un-American” and the AK lovers telling their AR counterparts that Eugene Stoner’s baby is an unreliable piece of Tactical Gucci, …

Don’t obsess over how clean your guns are.

cleaning kit

I already know there will be backlash, mainly from some guys in the military community who are used to keeping their guns “white glove” clean and inspection ready.  I’m here to tell you that (for the most part) this is a waste of time and quite frankly ridiculous.  There is simply no need for this …

Building proficiency with DRY FIRE drills

dummy pistol rounds

Let’s face it, we don’t have piles of ammunition lying around just waiting to be shot which was all paid for by sponsors.  While getting out to the range is fun and necessary, there is much that can be done within the comfort of your own home which can (given enough time) drastically improve your …

Ammunition and Magazine recommendations

PMAG and Ammo

Lots of hype concerning ammunition and magazines these days.  With some lawmakers pushing to restrict online ammo sales and magazine capacity (in some states this has already happened) the market and consumers have both reacted.  Supplies are slim, with “in stock” notification emails going out and quantities being snatched up in mere minutes.  Prices are …

The Importance of the Press Check

Press Check on Glock

Regardless of whether or not there is a magazine in your weapon, is it loaded or unloaded?  Is there a round in the chamber and are you 100% sure about that?  Both valid questions when it comes to handling any weapon because we should always be aware of the status of our weapon. Those who …
