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 …

“Flat” and Calling Shots

In the last article in the series, I told you about how the eye picks up images and sees. We’ve been talking about what “flat” really means in terms of shooting – how we perceive “flat” when we shoot a handgun, what we’re actually seeing, and what shooting a gun that we perceive as “flat” …

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.

The M&P Project: Dawson Charger Sights

Most factory pistols come with the cheapest, most horrible sights you could possible imagine. The M&P is better, in this regard, including a set of steel, 3-dot style sights. But, we can do better than that!

Dynamic First Aid – Lone Star Medics

It’s been a looooooong time since I’ve had any formal training in first aid. Probably 25 years? Think: Boy Scout First Aid merit badge.

The M&P Project: Apex Tactical RAM

The one thing I really had issues with when I tried out the M&P seems to be a symptom of the overall trigger design. That is, of course, the utter lack of trigger reset feedback. If you ride the trigger on accuracy work, you rely on that feedback to tell you when the trigger’s good …

1050 Modifications

For the most expensive and “Cadillac” press in Dillon’s lineup, you’d think it was pretty much perfect from the get go, right? Wrong. Just remember, if it ain’t broke, you can always make it better! Here’s a couple of good ones to take a look at – the improved primer catch, and the aluminum roller …

Once Fired is Best

I’ve heard a lot of opinions on what to shoot at major matches… New brass only, or well used, or whatever I have laying around, or whatever happens to be loaded up… My opinion is that once fired brass, fired in your gun from new brass, is the only way to go… Here’s why…
