Sight Seeing!

I’ve been doing some thinking lately (yes, I know that sounds dangerous) about sights and what we need them for. Bear with me on this, but we need to use our sights to make accurate hits on whatever we’re aiming at. Using sight alignment and sight picture in conjunction with a proper trigger press and follow through is what allows us to brag to our friends about how much of a better shot we are than them. The thing that has been itching my brain lately, and what started this little post, is that we have to actually be able...

The Crucial Importance of Carrying Medical Equipment

I wanted to use the recent uptick in shark attacks off the coast of Florida to showcase the importance of carrying your medical gear at all times. You don’t get to leave them behind because you are on vacation. A stark example of this was demonstrated in an incident involving a 15-year-old girl who was attacked by a shark. Thanks to the quick thinking and resourcefulness of two vacationing doctors, who improvised tourniquets from available materials they found on hand, the girl's life was saved.

Kayla Lewis

  Kayla shot her first firearm when she was three years old and took her first formal firearms training class when she was nine. She got her first carry pistol, a Robar Glock 19, when she was in the 8th grade. She has been able to carry a concealed handgun daily since she was 18, and she has.  Kayla took an interest in all things medical after her first “Immediate Action Medical” class in 2007. After becoming a mom and realizing she had the stomach for it, she went to nursing school and graduated with honors. She was a Nurse in...

Guns and Gear of the Civilian Contractor in Iraq Being a Civilian Contractor providing security has to be one of the most unique occupations ever. The term “mercenary” gets thrown around quite a bit and although it may technically be correct it doesn’t adequately describe the professionalism of most of the people in the industry. Yes there are guys who are doing this purely for...

Get the most from IDPA

By: James Yeager There are two groups of people who shoot IDPA and I have no problem with either. One group are the “Gamers” who are constantly trying new guns, gear and techniques to make them faster and more likely to win. They are in it purely to win, and they do win, so they are accomplishing their goal. The other group is the “Martial Artists” who are there purely to prepare for violent confrontations. They have no need “win” the match. They feel no sense of failure after they loose because they knew they were going to loose before...

Get More From Your Training

By: James Yeager I would like to pass along some information that might make your tuition at your next firearms training class go further. This is directed toward tactical training but will most likely apply to other areas of instruction as well. The motivation for this article is watching students go through the same evolution as I did and wishing they didn’t have to climb the same costly, time consuming, frustrating, ladder. I remember my very first training class. It was very exciting and a little scary. Who were the other pistoleros? Would they laugh at me? Would they be...

Don’t Drag Your Dry Cleaning

By: Scott Gatlin After a couple of years of picking up my own dry cleaning (shirts and pants), I recently picked up a dress for my wife. As I was walking to my truck in the parking lot, an elderly lady in a passing car rolled down her window and said, “Honey, you are dragging that dress through the puddles.” She was right, and the dress went back to the dry cleaners. As I drove home, I realized why I had dragged the dress. I had become accustomed to carrying my dry cleaning to the truck at a certain height,...
