Guns & Voting…Can YOU Carry When You Vote

One of the big questions that comes up every 2 years is whether or not you can carry your firearm when you vote. It’s an important question. Voter intimidation at polling locations isn’t widespread, but when it happens, law abiding people should be able to defend themselves if necessary and not left to feel disarmed and…

Removing Creepy Crawlies From Your Water…

I love holidays…not the new made-up ones, but the ones that we had when I was growing up. Here’s a Halloween pic I found on my phone of my boys and I from a few years ago when we were dropping them off for pre-school.  Yes…I’m in disguise… In the spirit of the season, I…

The Fallacy Of “Training To The Test”

I’ve been shooting a lot of standard courses of fire lately. 5×5, FBI Qual, Casino Drill, and others. I’m trying to figure out airsoft times/distances that compare to live fire and which standards are even valuable to shoot with airsoft.

When Can I Draw My Gun

One of the more common questions that I get is about when it’s legal or appropriate to draw a firearm. The short answer is, it depends 🙂 Part of it depends on where you are… Are you at home responding to someone trying to kick your door in the middle of the night? Are you…

Event/Media Driven Training & Modified Dicken’s Drill (8″target 60yards)

I’ve got a couple of cool things for you today. First is a “drill” was created this week to commemorate Eli Dicken’s life-saving actions on Sunday at the Greenwood Park Mall in Greenwood Id. Latest reports from video analysis evidently show that Dickens fired from a braced position, behind a column, 43 yards away from the…

Distract, get off-the-x, draw from IWB concealment, AND put 2 hits on target in less than a second

This is going to be fun… Making a hit on target in under a second is a great goal.  It’s relatively useless in a gunfight on it’s own, but the smoothness, efficiency, and confidence that you build in the quest for a sub-second draw is INCREDIBLY valuable. Making 2 hits on target in under a…

Last week, I had the privilege to teach at the A Girl And A Gun national conference for the 5th year in a row.  It was in beautiful Grand Junction Colorado at the Cameo Shooting Complex and it was another incredible experience. 550+ women shooters from all 50 states took blocks of instruction on everything…
