What’s coming soon at Re-Gun.com

Hi, everyone! It’s been a while since the last update here at re-gun.com, and I wanted to give you a glimpse into what’s been going on, and what you can expect in the coming weeks on the site’s posts…

Sometimes, life gets in the way of things. Or, maybe more accurately, sometimes we bite off more than we can handle at a given time, and some of the balls we’re juggling have to get put down temporarily while we deal with other balls in the air. Such has been the case around here the last couple of months. As most of you know, I’m pretty involved in CrossFit, but what you might not know is that I run a second business centered around photography, and I’m also involved with CrossFit through Dave Re Photo. From mid-May through late June, I was very involved in the planning and running of the 2011 CrossFit South Central Regional competition as the Media Director for the event. I also attended two other Regional competitions in Jacksonville, FL and Denver, CO as a photographer. Somehow, in the middle of that, I found time to shoot the 2011 Double Tap Championship. That’s a busy couple of months! I’ll also be attending the 2011 CrossFit Games later this month as a member of the staff running the event (and maybe a few pictures, too).

In addition, my day job really heated up during that time. Unfortunately, something had to give, as it always does. So, as you can see, no blog traffic for a little while. I appreciate you sticking with me through the hiatus!

Now that things are a little more manageable, I can give you a quick preview on what’s coming to the blog over the next couple of months, and what my shooting should look like for the rest of the competition season.

One of the most important things to come here shortly will be my match report and video footage from the 2011 Double Tap Championship. Some of you may know that I went minor at the Double Tap – I’ll have a separate post detailing what happened (though I’ll bet you can guess, given the above), and how I dealt with it mentally during the match.

I received a lot of feedback on topics folks would like to see covered on the blog, including movement techniques. I’m working with a local videographer to see if we can record some concise, useful video covering the basic techniques, and I’ll be posting those, too. I have a pretty nice queue of things to discuss like this – it’s just going to take a little time to get them written up and any associated media recorded and available.

Finally, I’ve been looking a lot at other aspects of shooting, most notably the defensive side of things. I’m starting a project to examine one of the emerging popular platforms for duty, concealed carry, and competition – the Smith and Wesson M&P. I’m going to walk you from start to finish on my thoughts on the base factory gun, and the improvements I’m making to it to serve as a carry gun, and potentially as a USPSA Production division competition gun, too. I’m also going to review a couple of other carry options I have in the safe.

So, that’s the scoop – hope my hiatus hasn’t been too disappointing, and as always, if you have questions, or things you’d like to see covered on this blog, drop me a note and let me know!

      LOL… thanks, Rick. No worries – movement will get the full treatment over (probably) a few posts…
