25 Daily Presses

I have neglected dry fire for far too long now. Live fire too, for that matter. I would probably be embarrassed to go shoot at the range tomorrow. To compound the problem, I have recently been toting a J-Frame revolver either in the waistband or pocket. Say what you will, but I have also been […]

Instructor Report Cards

I cannot imagine there are too many people in my shoes.  I have been to many classes over the years, almost all of them documented here on the blog.  I have met a lot of people in those classes.  Accountants, police officers, information technology specialists, lawyers, doctors, army reservists, etc.  I cannot ever recall meeting […]

My 2021 Competitive Shooting Year in Review

Since I started shooting competitively in 2016, the articles I have written outlining each match have been some of our least read articles.  I get it.  READING about a match is not as interesting as participating or even watching one.  So I thought this year I would just do a “wrap-up” article on my performance […]
