I’m a strong advocate for tossing the iron sights of yesteryear and using reflex optics. 20 years ago the optic was often as large as the pistol itself. Today’s optics are smaller, last longer, and are often as strong as the iron sights they are replacing. It’s amazingly counter-intuitive to tell someone to focus on […]

I Was Wrong!

In January 2018, I finally found a great deal on a SIG Sauer P320 XCarry. I had read every review and drooled over the specs since the debut at Shot Show 2017. Nearly a year later, I had one in my hand. I’ve shot it and carried it for a year and a half now. […]


As most of you know, I’m a trainer. I like to train and help others train. I’ve had a tool in my bag for a couple of years now that is exceptional. They just released their latest version and it is AMAZING. Let me introduce you to the MantisX. I haven’t needed anything but the […]

Inconsistent Performance

I teach about three or four one-hour pistol lessons every week. The most common problem that most shooters have is consistency. A lot of their shots are great, but there is always a flyer or two that misses the mark. Why is this? The answer is: stability. Most shooters think they have some super-human ability […]


I’m enjoying our new President and a more friendly posture towards the 2nd Amendment. But I am concerned that we continue to promote the correction of several anti-Constitutional laws that remain on the books. The first is the National Firearms Act of 1934. This is the legislation which created the requirement to pay a $200 […]
