See Your Front Sight Faster & More Clearly

One of the most common problems that shooters have is how long it takes them to see their front sight clearly. The process is pretty amazing. The shape of the eye changes so that a clear image of the front sight forms on the back of each eye. A chemical reaction turns that image into…

Leads on Moving Targets With Pistols

I know that I have readers who believe in liberty, tolerance, and free speech, as long as it doesn’t have anything to do with Jesus…If that’s you, I ask for a few moments of tolerance, open mindedness and I think you’ll appreciate what I’m about to say. Today is Good Friday.  The day when a…

KKM Match Grade Glock 26 Replacement Barrel Field Test & Review

8” groups at 85 yards…with a subcompact? Awhile back, I decided to upgrade the little 3.42″ barrel in my Glock 26. I changed the ammo I was carrying from 124gr to 147gr and the stock barrel didn’t seem to like it as much. Specifically, I have steel in my back yard at 55 and 85…

Training for reality vs. training for averages

See how the right grip can cut your draw time in half and your followup speed by 75%

The myth of “Point” or “Instinctive” shooting

I got a great question/comment on Facebook today and I wanted to share it, and my response, with you… I talked some with Stephen…he has real world experience stopping lethal force threats with a pistol.  But he had 10s of thousands of rounds of practice ammo provided for him that allowed him to develop the…

Fighter Pilots & Combat Pistol

I got a well meaning question on FB that I wanted to share with you. It’s important to understand that people say things on social media in ways that they’d never say in person: Edward made the common mistake of thinking that being able to hit things when you’re plinking with friends with no stress…

Low Ready vs. Holster & Sighted vs. Unsighted Shooting

We’ve got a shooting study group that meets once a month to force us to get out of our comfort zone.  It’s all guys who are serious about shooting and can be trusted to move and shoot safely on a hot range in poor conditions. A lot of times, we end up shooting when it’s…
