So much is happening these days. Roads being blocked by protestors, random violence, protests, recently a man pulled a gun and started shooting while in a checkout line at a discount retailer. Short of never leaving your home, what can you do? Avoidance is your best defense. In other words, no need a defense. Instructors talk a lot about situational awareness. Basically it is processing information quickly, almost on a sub-conscious level, about your surroundings. I think of the space around me in concentric circles. 8-10 feet is really close, I need to know who is in that Read More >>

Negligent: failing to take proper care in doing something. We in shooting talk about Negligent Discharge (ND) when a gun is fired without intent. Accidental Discharge (AD) used to be another common term that has fallen out of favor as safety has been built in to modern firearms making the AD nearly obsolete. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot as a friend recently shared an experience of teaching a non-firearms related class where a student ignored the safety precautions and slightly injured herself. This was a situation that could have been much more serious Read More >>
There comes a time for every shooter to decide do I tell someone that I like to shoot or that I carry a concealed firearm. This is a very personal choice and can have profound consequences. Just look to media over the past year. Some very outspoken gun rights advocates have received death threats against themselves and their families. Some have been forced to move after their addresses were published on social media. Some kids in New Jersey faced suspension from school for going to a range with experienced parents for a day of fun shooting, and posting non-threatening photos on Read More >>
Julie has a long list of accomplishments; Veteran, Mom, Wife, Author, Hunter, Pro Shooter, TV personality, Captain of the Smith & Wesson shooting team, and IPSC World Champion Ladies Classic Division (probably the nicest shooter on the circuit), and newly elected member of the NRA Board of Directors!

Now that background checks are done by the federal government, this should not be a problem. This particular case, Mance v. Sessions, involved a resident of DC who wanted to buy a handgun in Texas to avoid the absurd $125 fee charged by the only FFL in DC. This case was of Read More >>
