Competitive Shooting

At the Range: A Non-Tactical Guy Goes Tactical, Part 4

I introduced my kids to a tactical gun, and they found it so much fun they beg to shoot it every time we go to my gun club. Finally, I was introduced to and became excited about competing in a different type of competition—3-gun—that was entirely beyond the scope of my experience, practice and passions.

The sad part is, I was one of those people in my own little world, I was never “against” the ownership of a tactical-style rifle. I just felt that I had no use for one. Since I took the plunge, I have fielded questions from just about every niche of my network of friends, colleagues and acquaintances…

Schumer Wants to Ban 100-Round Clips — I Have to Agree…

I just listened to the feel-good press conference about another so-called Assault Weapon Ban. It was sickening to hear the useless babble from the uneducated, uninformed lawmakers in this country until the logic struck me like a lightening bolt and really opened my eyes.
