Match Report: 2011 USPSA Open/L10 Nationals

I’m a little late in getting up my final match reports from last year, so I hope you’ll forgive me! The USPSA Nationals historically serves up one of the best tests of overall practical shooting skills each year. The 2011 Open/L10 Nationals lived up to that reputation. Hit the jump for my match video and …

Defense! (part 1)

When it comes to your score, there’s only one person that’s responsible for your score. YOU! Like it or not, in the end only you can be held responsible for your score. I can hear your inner monologue… “Now, Dave, you know that the RO makes his calls, and the Range Master does his thing, …

Match Report: 2011 Double Tap Championship

Confucious say…

How many mags?

It’s a really common question I get, especially from newer shooters. How many mags? The other two common questions go hand in hand – Tuned or not? And, tuned by whom?

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.

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.
