Confucious say…

…man who aim at published stage descriptions, miss. This is another reprint from the earlier version of the blog – the stages referenced are from 2008, but the article is still quite valid! It seems like a discussion periodically appears on the Benoverse around someone trying to determine the best way to shoot the stages …

Standards Drills for Practice

Another blast from the past! What does the word “Standards” make you think of? Torture? Inhuman cruelty? Sadistic match direction? Or, does it inspire thoughts of confidence? Smug satisfaction at free match points? I’ll bet its one of the first ones, isn’t it? Why do standards exercises invoke such fear and concern in most people? …

It must be the shoes!

Choice of footwear for the practical shooting sports remains one of the least standardized pieces of equipment in the games. What works for people tends to differ widely, depending on their individual feet, their movement style, and personal taste. The shoes you wear need to be comfortable for a long day of standing, and provide enough support and grip to keep your feet solidly on the ground in a wide variety of surfaces.

Update: DAA Race Master Holster

About a month ago, I published an initial review of the DoubleAlpha Academy’s new Race Master holster. I promised an updated review once I’d spent some more time with the holster, so… here we go!

The DAA Race Master Holster

Recently, a new holster hit the market that promised to have all the good and none of the bad – the Race Master, made by Double Alpha Academy. I decided to give one a test, and see how it stacks up against the other holsters I’ve used.

Setting up a CR Speed holster

I recently had a friend ask me how to set up the Rescomp CR Speed holster he’d bought for his Sig X-Five. We were going to try to go over it while I was last in California, but we ran out of time. So… out came the video camera, and away I went. To save …

Are you a gunsmith?

What’s had me curious lately is the seeming large number of folks who think they are gunsmiths… Oh, they don’t run around telling people that they’re gunsmiths or anything like that… What they do seem to do, though, is to decide how a gun should be built, and then they go tell some ‘smith to do it their way.

Match Ammunition

Many of us travel to major matches with a big weak link in our shooting bags, and many times we do it cause we’re just flat out cheap! So, with the match season getting into full gear, and with folks approaching their first or second big match of the year, it seemed like a great time to discuss a subject that everyone seems to be thinking about around this time of year: Match Ammo!

Test Driving New Equipment

I usually advise shooters to try out everything they can before making a purchase decision, and don’t go into the trial with a preconceived notion of which brand or configuration you think you need. Go in with an eye towards results, and what works best for you. That’s exactly what we did here…
