Are Double Action Triggers Obsolete?

Back in the days when I was growing up, watching Miami Vice and reruns of Starsky and Hutch, SWAT, Hawaii Five-O and other classic TV police shows, I was always amazed as to how the cops would win the majority of their gun fights. Of course, they were the good guys and if you’re the […]

Running 416

Over the weekend, I’ve decided to finally partake in a monthly sub-gun match. And to be honest, I’ve been putting it off for almost two years mainly for three reasons. First is that the match range is far as shit from my place. Well, anything more than an hour away from me is what I […]

The Volkspistole

When Heckler and Koch announced that they were releasing a striker fire pistol back in 2014, I was like “it’s about time!“. After all, the only pistols that I currently have been using were all hammer fired double-action/single-action system. And unlike my former ownership of the XD-S, I was never quite bothered about rushing out […]

The Basics of Fundamentals

It’s funny to sit here and look back on the many classes that I’ve taken since I started learning how to shoot. No matter if it’s with a local instructor or someone recently like with Chris Costa; it seems that every (good) instructor will key in on the fundamentals of marksmanship. Although they all might […]

Handgun Employment Theory One

I’ve been looking forward to this class for quite some time now and that moment has arrived. It’s like waiting for that U2 concert that is almost a year away, only wishing for that day to get here sooner. As the date was getting close, I remember spending the entire week prepping for Costa Ludus […]

Subguns Sunday

It started with what I thought was a post that I didn’t think would have taken me seriously. But the post read… Sunday Steel Challenge Markham Park @ 0815. I am in for the MP5 squad…anyone else? That post came from my instructor. Well, I figure I answer him but I doubt he would take […]

Under Fire, A Look Back

I spent a few days looking back and thinking upon my first experience with Hot Shots and what I got out of it. Overall I really enjoyed it. I thought the courses of fire were well put together. They were are all doable, maybe not now at my current level, but I have a strong […]

Altair Tactical Carbine One

With limited ammo and the REC7 sitting away in storage for a little over an entire year, my dreams for 3-Guns pretty much went “POOF”. But I also think it’s more about my injuries of 2013 than anything else. Fast forward to today. With 10 steel ASC magazines and 500 rounds of ammo, I was […]

There’s Always a Lesson

I have to admit that it’s been nice to squad up with a group of people who has the same training as you. Well, at least for me it is. The mentality on the squad is definitely a lot different from a competitive environment. I mean, lets face it, I like doing my reloads and […]

Running Steel

I got invited to participate in doing a steel practice session with my instructor at TFA. I was pretty excited to get out there and try it. I’ve only been shooting mostly indoors at paper targets, with some exception to being outdoors. But I never shot steel! So the thought of doing it is pretty […]
