“I WILL NEVER…” PART 1: CORE BELIEFS

A few months ago, I posted an article The Hard Questions – Gracie’s Fireside Chat. This article posed a handful of questions that every person should consider before they carry a gun, or expect to use one for defense. It was also a key article in my series on the defensive mindset. Today we continue the project of  asking ourselves tough questions so that we can continue to build our personal tactical doctrine.

My Sifu once told the whole class that our home work was to make an “I will never …” list.… Read the rest

HOT CALIBER – THE STORY BEHIND THESE BULLET THEMED BEAUTIES

I have written up some pretty serious posts as of late, most of them reviews. So this week I want to lighten the mood up a bit and write about something a little more on the fun side.

As some of you may already know, I have had the Hot Caliber Renegade pendant on my Amazon universal wish list for quite some time now.  About a week ago, it arrived in my mail box. Thank you, summertime Santa!

While there is a lot of gun themed jewelry out there, the only pieces I’ve actually fallen in love with are Hot Caliber’s.… Read the rest

9 TIPS FOR WOMEN STARTING OUT IN COMPETITVE SHOOTING

I am not a professional shooter; I do not even attempt to compete outside of my local ranges.  If I were to be spending every weekend at local, regional, state, or national matches; I wouldn’t have the time to do what I really love, teaching firearms courses.  However, I do make the time to shoot and participate as a range officer in our monthly action pistol matches because I think it’s great training; it tests your capabilities as well as the capabilities of your gear under stress.… Read the rest

THE PINK GUN DEBATE

There has been a lot of dispute on the internet lately concerning pink guns. Some people think that pink guns are a sexist approach by the manufactueres to sell to women; some people think pink guns are just a desperate attempt to make women interested in  shooting to begin with; some think they look too much like a toy; and then there are those who actually like pink guns.

I usually don’t jump into these petty disputes (honestly, why are we even taking the time to write about this), but I haven’t seen anybody make the obvious arguments yet, and I’m sick of waiting.… Read the rest
