Reader Comments of the Week
“Push the gun forward as if you are throwing a punch, as hard as you can, while meeting it with your off hand as you begin to push out. Lock the weapon in by rotating your left “or off hand” so your thumbs are in line with each other pointing at the target. To get your hand high up on the bore, rotate your off hand by swiveling it forward, your off hand should fit in the groove between your fingers and hand on your strong hand. Push with the right annd pull with the left to lock it in place so that it can’t be knocked away even by a good smack. Now shoot by lining up your sights and releasing your breath.”
– GEORGE, in response to Lock It Up: Why a Firm Grip Is So Important
“I’ve used assorted laser devices for dry-fire, but I keep coming back to using a pellet gun shaped like my real one, shooting at small hanging objects that move and clank when hit. This is for “close-range quickdraw” type shooting, given the trajectory of the pellet. For precise long-range type shots, I stick with the old-fashioned “watch the sights while pulling the trigger” method, as I have no trouble putting the sights on target – my weakness has always been holding steady during the pull.”
– STEVEN, in response to Improving Dry Fire and Live Fire Training with MantisX
“Love Lancer L5 magazines. They do make a specific magazine for the 300 BO and it it molded on the magazine 300 Blackout. Definitely Lancer going forward for me.”
– JAMES, in response to Magazine Monday: 5 Ways to Feed Your AR-15
