“The Dry Fire Primer” by Annette Evans

As likely happens with most of us, time occasionally gets away from me. Last August, when I attended Chuck Haggard’s Practical Revolvers, competition shooter Annette Evans was also in attendance. At the end of the day before Chuck cut us loose, he let us know that Annette had books for sale. I’m a sucker for a book, so I grabbed a copy of The Dry Fire Primer with every intention of diving right into it. Continue reading ““The Dry Fire Primer” by Annette Evans”

SGAmmo.com: Awesome Source of Cheap Ammo

Over the past two years I’ve ordered many thousands of rounds of ammunition. An awful lot of it has come from SGAmmo.com. I didn’t find out about SGAmmo.com until Mike told me about them and I felt late to the party, so I want to spread the word to you guys. Continue reading “SGAmmo.com: Awesome Source of Cheap Ammo”

Field Report: Taurus 856 .38 Special

Undoubtedly the coolest thing about starting this blog is how much I’ve learned since. Most of this knowledge is centered around the use of a roundgun, but but a considerable portion is about guns themselves.

Some of it is gained first hand, though, as was the case with the Taurus family of firearms to which I recently got acquainted through the Taurus 856.

Small Revolvers are Hard to Shoot

Sometimes you can be too close to something, too involved in a topic to see it from other perspectives. You can stand too close to a painting to see the whole scene and instead, focus on individual elements. A couple days ago I pulled my S&W 640 Pro out of my range bag. After a couple strings of fire I realized I had been suddenly yanked from the midst of the trees and treated to the full view of the forest that I’d been missing.

Precision Holsters Tactical Concealed Carry Nylon Belt

When I find something I really like – something like a knife, watch, wallet, or belt¬† – I can get pretty resistant to change. When something like this comes along that really works, I will use it until it just won’t work anymore. Once up on a time I found a belt that works for me and I wore it for about a dozen years. I was recently provided a Precision Holsters Tactical Conceal Carry Nylon Belt, and even though my old one is still going strong, I’m rethinking my belt choices!
