Shooting Drills…..Why?

In the last year or so, John and I have been posting more often about drills we have shot.  We have outlined what is entailed with the drills themselves and then described our own performance on these drills (sometimes our performances have been worth sharing, and other times less so!).  We share the drills because […]

2017: Looking Back

As I have done each year since the blog’s inception, I thought it worthwhile to revisit my goals for 2017 to see what I did, what goals were met, and how I (hopefully) improved. Formal Training I ended up taking 7 courses in 2017, six of which were one-day affairs (one was a two-day class).  […]

My Ameriglo Customer Service Experience

I’m going to share something with our readers that no one knows (not even John….until now). Over a year ago I wrote a review of the Ameriglo I Dot Pro sights.  I even went back to that article and updated it when I bought more sets.  Currently, ALL of my Glocks wear them (I do […]

Back to Basics: Dry Fire

Although I have written about dry fire here and here on the blog before, I wanted to revisit the topic and share what I’ve been doing lately, and explain how it’s helped me.

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall?

A quick internet search reveals that I’m hardly the only one to ever think of doing this, but I thought I would write a bit about a somewhat controversial idea. Specifically, I want to address one way to dry fire that I have found beneficial. Use a mirror! I’m sure most gun owners have done […]

Useful Training Tools

With all the training I have done over the last few years, I thought it might be useful to make a list of useful training items to have.  As such, this article can serve as a handy complement to my article on preparing for your first firearms class.  The items discussed in this list, however, are specific […]

A Sample Dry Fire Routine…

(Some readers may notice that the title of this post has changed… Due to some recent life changes, I would be lying if I claimed to do this exact routine daily. I do usually dry fire daily, even if it’s just a few presentations and trigger presses, but making time for a structured routine such […]
