Tactical Pistol Three

I guess it was only a matter of time before I decided to finish up the “Tactical Pistol” series offered by Tactical Firearms Academy (TFA). To be honest, I was purposely putting off taking this last class because all I heard was that the qualifiers were brutal. Yes, there are two qualifiers. If you’ve taken […]

Are Double Action Triggers Obsolete?

Tactical Pistol Two

Recently I heard, in passing, from Kyle Defoor a question that some people often asked him in regards to shooting. What makes a Tier One Operator different from a another shooter?
