Safety and Complacency

I have had students approach me after classes and ask if I handle my gun in the same “ultra-safe” manner when no one is watching. I think it intrigues them because many times people comment on it as to how it looks exaggerated or fake to them.  I remind them that yes, I do these things EVERYTIME I handle a [...]

Scott and Tamara – A (gun) love story

Wow.  What a great day I had yesterday! I had the honor of teaching two people how to shoot better – and how satisfying it was. Scott and Tamara are like many other couples in one way.  He has been around guns for a long time and she, well, not as much, but has a nifty little Berretta and they [...]

Ignorant Media = Ignorant Masses

All week long I have been resisting the urge to finalize my opinion in the tragic shooting in St. Louis, Missouri.  I just don't have enough information - accurate information, yet.  As a student of things gun, hence the term gunist to describe myself, I am acutely aware that the opinions of what I will refer to as the "masses" are largely ignorant [...]
