Shooting the NRA “Basics of Pistol Course”

In keeping with my post last week outlining a trip to the range, this week I thought I would post the results of my latest range session.  As readers of this blog are probably by now aware, I am a huge fan of the writings of Claude Werner, “The Tactical Professor”.  I find all of his […]
