Open. Flatter?

This is the fifth post in the “flat” series. You might find it useful to check out the previous articles before you dig into this one! Open division guns add one more rather obvious factor into this whole “flat” equation – the ability to redirect gas from the combustion of the gunpowder to help the …

Flatlining Your Gun

This is the fourth article in a series of posts talking about “flat”. If you haven’t read the others, you might want to do that first. Where we left off last time, we learned what properties about the sighting systems on the gun can affect your ability to call shots, and what we can’t do …

How the Eyes See

Any discussion of “flat” is incomplete and uninformed without an understanding of how the eyes actually see. I’m not talking about “we see at 30 frames per second” or anything quite as simple as that. I’m talking about understanding how shot calling really works, and how that affects not only what we perceive as “flat” …

Is “bear arms” Really That Unclear?

I don’t know if you’ve seen the Jennings v. McCraw decision. In it, U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings punted on addressing whether the 2nd Amendment actually allows a person to Constitutionally carry a firearm outside the home. There’s been a lot of flap on the Internet about it, of course, but not all of it …

Stick to what you know…

Charles Poliquin is a very well known and well respected strength trainer. I would hesitate to question any of his work in his area of expertise. Further, I wouldn’t be in a big hurry to start telling you how to strength train, because I simply don’t have the level of experience of folks like Poliquin. …

FAST reloads

I’ve had some folks tell me that my reloads are fast. I’m no slouch – I can generally reload the gun under a second in match context, and in the .80s or high .70s in practice. That isn’t fast. Nope. You need to see the big picture, and really understand what FAST is… Then you’ll …
