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

Four of the Sig P238s have come through my classes in the recent past, and I have had the opportunity to both shoot them as well as observe them in the hands of my students.

Shooting the Barrett 50 BMG, what can I say? AWESOME! It’s a life changing experience…and not just financially—The rifle alone costs around $10,000 (that’s before optics or any other accessories), and each time you pull the trigger you just shot a five dollar bill.
My thanks to Gregg Smith and David Smith for making this possible! Watch Gregg as he points out where I hit. Enjoy!
