Baselines #4 Reload Drills

If you are following this series, you have seen that I lay out some baselines then some drills on how to gauge or establish that baseline. In the last article, I wrote about reloads so this one is some thoughts on how to learn or test reloads. First, let me tell you all I am… read more »

A case for .40 S&W

Once the darling of law enforcement, .40 S&W has fallen on hard times. As major federal agencies like the FBI switch back to 9mm; smaller state, county, and city agencies are following suit. The swing back to 9mm has been driven by improvements in pistol bullet technology that has rendered all service calibers pretty much… read more »

Baselines #3

Once we have our first baselines as laid out (see parts one and two) there are a ton of other skills that need to be trained, practiced and tested. Having the ability to group, zero and fire at a stationary target from a few positions does not a gunslinger make. One needs to be able… read more »

Comp and Dot

Over the past several years, the “Roland Special” concept has gone from unknown, to being mocked, copied, modified, and has now taken its rightful place as internet meme. On the P&S forum, I commented that I felt like that the dot and comp together made a pistol shoot greater than the sum of the parts…. read more »

Baselines #2

Part Two In part one we talked about some standards from 0-500 with rifles. Some will argue that the standards are too loose while some will argue that they are too strict. That’s exactly why they are the standards. You can be above, at or below the standard. It’s easy to understand. Your standard shooter… read more »

Weapon Critical Comparisons

There is a big misconception with “lesser” brands versus higher end brands just being status symbols – for me, and I suspect for most P&S staff and subscribers – they are not. When some personalities start to push lesser brands, I begin to wonder about their motivations. People regularly seek a means of determining what… read more »

Baselines

I am LE and I have a decent baseline of competency with a pistol. What would you say a good basic competency with a rifle would look like? This question was asked of me recently and I felt it would be a good time to do a series on it because I am sure many… read more »

Trust But Verify …and Follow the Money

This week the firearms and tactical medical community is ablaze with news that Jeff Kirkham, the creator of the RATS Tourniquet has initiated a fake news campaign against the North American Rescue Combat Application Tourniquet. He’s also been cybersquatting on a couple of CAT-related domains. This has been covered in detail by many outlets, and… read more »

Tap Rack Tactical AAR

In September of last year, I had the pleasure of hosting Bill Blowers of Tap-Rack Tactical for his two day Tactical Pistol class. I am just getting around to finishing the AAR, but hopefully it will give anyone looking into the course an accurate idea of what to expect. TL;DR: Some people want a quick… read more »

Carrying Light With Firearms

This is an older picture and some EDC items have changed but the concept remains a constant. There seems to be a misconception that a weapon mounted light is mandatory for edc. I do require them on my in-uniform duty weapons, but there is a difference in tasks and expectations between an on duty police… read more »
