SHOTGUN GUNFIGHTING Feed

Gabe Suarez brings back the Suarez Shotgun Gunfighting class for the first time in a decade. The shotgun is the battle axe of the modern gunfight battle field and of all the weapons, it is inherently suited to the aggressive Suarez style of shooting. Suarez brings his personal experience in several shotgun gunfights from his days working the Gang Unit to present the most real-world based look at the shotgun available to any shooter today.

Gabe Suarez commentary on the non-NFA, pistol grip only, Remington 870 12 ga firearm. He explains the use of the weapon and why it is not for the feeble. But that in its niche it is unbeatable as a power tool. Read more →


I am speechless...and that rarely happens by the way. I was sure that I was a heretic in the big Cathedral of American Gun Culture. That stuffy incense filled hall where every bullet comes with a lawyer, and the faithful perfect the angle of their feet in their Weavers as they sing hymns. But there I was open mouthed, incredulous, and pie-eyed. I had to take a moment to reconsider if I had suddenly become mainstream...if my iconoclast card has been revoked...if I was longer worthy to sail under the black flag. Dogs and cats were seen talking to real estate brokers. I am still astounded. Either "somebody" agrees with me, or "somebody" may have been paid by Mossberg to say nice things about the 590 Shockwave. I mean...what is next? A Mossberg Shockwave Class at a famous name shooting school? God only knows. BUY YOUR STAKEOUT 870 HERE Read more →


I almost laughed when I first saw this product, but then, this news item crossed my desk. ISIS has been using drones to pretty good effect. It makes perfect sense and it is surprising that they did not think of this sooner. As well, it will be a matter of time before the US Insurgencies, from the indigenous jihadis, to the counter culture socialists we see blocking roads from adopting this method. It doesn't take much imagination to think what a couple of anarcho-terrorists could do with a van full of drones in a big city. Not so much a laughing matter I think. Here is a video of the Jihadi Drone Attacks. And while I am not aware of what the range and specifications are for this item, it certainly seems like an attempt to address the issue of Terrorist Drone Attacks. I am neither selling nor profiting from this, simply an interesting product at an interesting time. And before you get all giggly and start posting that Gabe has finally gone bananas, it looks like the US Military... Read more →


It was only a matter of time. The "gun media mafia" is now anti-stakeout. The astounding thing is that they don't seem to be anti-Mossberg Shockwave, when our Stakeout 870 is used in the same way. I suspect if Larry Vickers had come out with the concept, these same detractors of the Stakeout would be rubbing their man-parts all over it and then wiping it down with canola oil...but there I go on a tangent. So the arguments...lets discuss them one by one shall we. 1). They say that these weapons are difficult to shoot well. Truth: We all recall the anti-red dot rhetoric where the same guys would claim that the red dot slowed them down, that they had to hunt for the dot, and the dot would disappear when they shot. We showed that all of these issues are training issues and that any new technology has a learning curve. The problem is that the lazy do not care for learning curves. Truth: Many of the pundits come from the police world where two trends have been insinuating... Read more →


Invariably, every time I post something about the Stakeout I will get emails from guys who simply do not know. Its like the pudgy doctor that has not kept up with modern science telling to eat grains and go jogging. So here is the long and short of it. The ATF has made rulings that a “shotgun” originally sold with a pistol grip only, and that has never had a buttstock attached, is not actually a “shotgun”, but a “firearm”. It can be listed as “firearm” or “other” on the 4473 and any other FFL documentation. In essence it is exactly like an AR-15receiver. There is no minimum barrel length for such a firearm. The only important point is that it not be short enough to be “concealable”. If it was concealable it would be classified as an AOW (“Any Other Weapon”) and be an NFA weapon. The ATF Tech Branch has stated the weapon must be over 26” to be considered not concealable. Multiple people have submitted inquiries about this to the ATF and they have received the same...

These are being built as we speak and we expect to ship the first dozen in about a week. In the interim I have been shooting the first one almost daily on the way to the shop in the morning. I have some observations after approximately 500 rounds through the weapon. Conditions have not lent themselves for any video lately, but I am hoping to do a few sessions in the coming weeks as the training area dries up. 1). The Stakeout Strap is not essential, but after all of this shooting I have found it does help. The front hand is crucial with this weapon...both pre and post shooting. It does all the work. Before the shot it drives the weapon forward and after the shot, the front hand works the action and drives back into battery and toward the target. There is a timing involved and the strap helps keep the hand in place. 2). Recoil mitigation. This is a heavy recoiling weapon and anything that can be done to mitigate the recoil should be done. The porting... Read more →
