Nightfighter on the Range

I know what some people might be thinking. “Nate, since you graduated from school, you must have gotten some dream job with a 6 figure salary enabling you to purchase all manner of luxury firearms items.” Well, first off I have no dream job, and second off I did not purchase this pistol myself.

Accuracy and Precision- The Test

To understand any of this you need to read parts one and two. There I laid out what we are trying to accomplish and why. The short version is using testing to find where the gaps are in your equipment. For this example I am attempting to find the inherent accuracy of a rifle and… read more »

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 »

Gunslingin’ #5

If you haven’t been keeping up, I have done articles on Stability, aiming, and data. Those articles lead back to the first one and the shot process. For this one, I am going to focus on that and the “why” to use it in your own shooting and getting it into your training. This will… read more »

Eating Our Own Part Deux

This is a follow-up post to Eating Our Own, published by P&S last year. Most of the themes are the same. We still face dogged opponents set on taking our liberties away. We still have problems with infighting and heresy. We still have different Second Amendment- based advocacy organizations vying for our membership, support and… read more »
