Vindication Part II

I am not sure if this will become a regular series on this blog, but this article will connect with at least a couple of others already on the blog.  While my last vindication article was all about why I choose not to carry a firearm at work (or some other places), this article will […]

Vindication

John and I have taken at least a little flak over the years for not putting our full names, photos, videos, etc., out there.  I have personally taken some flak (including in some comments right here on this site) for admitting that I do not “always” carry a gun.  One recent event shared by a […]

The Quest for the Sub-Second Draw

I am not sure when the quest for the sub-second draw became a thing, but clearly it did.  I am happy to not be on Facebook anymore, but whether it’s on Reddit, YouTube, or on the gun forums, it seems like this is the Holy Grail for many handgun owners. What is the sub-second draw?  […]

Got a Plan(ner)?

If you’ve ever read one of Robert’s end of year review blog posts, you’ve probably noticed that he keeps detailed track of round counts, personal performance goals, and achievements throughout the year.

White Settlement, TX Church Shooting Commentary…

There’s not much more I can say about the latest attack on a congregation that hasn’t already been said, and it’s not even been a full 24 hours yet. I refer of course to the lone gunman who opened fire in a White Settlement, TX church and was quickly and definitively put down by an […]
