A Pistol For the Present Day Gunfighter (Why I carry a Glock)

When the Glock first arrived on the scene, I remember hearing many deride this new “plastic gun” as “not worthy” when compared to its most successful and widely used predecessor the 1911.

As with all things, change is inevitable and just as the 1911 replaced the revolver, so has the "plastic gun", specifically the Glock, replaced the...


SKIPPING BUCKSHOT - FORGOTTEN SHOTGUN TACTIC

SKIPPING BUCKSHOT…AND OTHER PROJECTILES I learned to do this back in 1986. It had been used in gunfights by the L.A. Sheriff's Deputies several times and a viable tactic.

Home Alone – The Minimalist Approach to Getting in Shape

If you have finally decided to take Gabe’s advice and start working out but are not sure what gym to join or when you’ll find time to hit the gym, let me offer some advice. Forget the gym. At least postpone it until you get in better shape and can maximize the benefit of a membership. There are advantages to a club; however, the travel time cuts into workouts. My hectic schedule and rural location convinced me to go it alone. If you want to give it a try, here is how to start. Schedule a regular time. I find...
