There was a time not so long ago that I thought, this is silly. That was before I taught one. I had always done mixed gender classes, and frankly was lucky enough to teach with some highly evolved guys. However, for new women shooters, there is an ease that you get in a women only class that you don’t get in a mixed gender class. It is more comfortable to ask the questions that might be embarrassing, like how to use a public restroom when you are armed or how the bra holster works. Since more and more women are coming to shooting, and many are coming because of a fear, either Read More »

July 4, 2013 Adam Kokesh, an Iraq war veteran and self-proclaimed activist, is organizing an armed march on Washington DC. He is calling for supporters to carry loaded rifles “slung over their backs” as they cross the Potomac River into DC. On a FaceBook page for the event, he candidly admits that there is a risk of arrest, and while he discourages resistance, he has acknowledged the risks, encouraging participants to submit to arrest peacefully. Mr Kokesh acknowledges this is not a permitted event, which gives authorities one more basis for arresting participants. Frankly, living Read More »
I starting out shooting International Defensive Pistol Association competitions some 13 years ago with a highly customized Colt 1911 .45 that was a hoot to shoot. That big .45 semi-wadcutter slug left perfect .452 inch holes in targets that you could see from 20 yards away. It was soft shooting and had a crisp trigger. Of course I dropped some $600 in upgrades to that basic model Colt, with all new trigger parts, sights, grips, barrel, and a crisp gunsmith trigger job from our friend Ray Saltzman. The best thing about that Colt was I got to learn as I shot. I got to learn about Read More »
If you’ve never been to a gun show you are in for a treat! Be prepared for a plethora of sights, sounds and smells. At a large show you will likely hear a symphony of duck, turkey and deer calls. The smells include cleaners, jerky, the intoxicating scent of gun oil on a shiny new firearm…and the people! Young, old, in-between, camo, khaki, jeans, and often a few interesting alternative forms of dress. Antique firearms and swords, exotic wood rifle stocks, amazing selections of pistols, shotguns, rifles…modern, old west style…holsters, sights, leather, magazines, ammo, safes, Read More »
It was in my last blog, which was a while ago – so I apology for not getting this out at little earlier, that I talked about how our schools are “dumbing down” our children. I shared information about colleges changing their thoughts on education. However, just after my last blog, I ran across a college publication with an article titled, Right to Bear Arms: Students for Concealed Carry. After reading the article I had two thoughts. First Thought: This is just too Cool! Well, I thought to myself, this is really incredible and just plain cool! I know “cool” is an old Read More »
