I signed up. Feb. 2nd & 3rd, 2019, I will be in Southern Utah shooting the 2nd Annual InRangeTV Desert Brutality. Hopefully I'll win something. If you don't know what DB is, here's the premise: A 2-Gun (rifle & pistol) practical shooting competition, where the difficulty comes not from complex stage design and target presentation, … Continue reading Desert Brutality 2019
Last weekend was the 2nd Twilight Run 'N Gun. If you remember from my last update, I was feeling odd and apprehensive about this event. Well, it's come and gone, the cookie has crumbled, and the fat lady has sung. Before I get into how I ended up doing, let's take a moment to talk … Continue reading Twilight Run ‘N Gun 2018 II Results
"I am a man of simple tastes..."
The Twilight Run 'N Gun 2018 - Part II is on the 27th, 15 days from the day this is published. My rifle is already set up. I know what gear I'm going to run. I know what I'm going to change and I think I know what to expect. My real concern is that … Continue reading Twilight Run ‘N Gun 2018, PART TWO -UPDATE
This phrase doesn't come around too often, usually only when someone is discussing a new cartridge from an ammo manufacturer, or a wildcat they are contemplating. That doesn't mean this saying isn't still asinine. The heart of my entire point is this: whether cartridges are redundant or not depends completely upon how narrowly you have … Continue reading Stupid Sayings: “There are Enough Calibers Already!”

I am talking, of course, about my 460 XVR from Smith & Wesson, chambered in .460 S&W Magnum. *dog for scale This gun is heavy, loud, expensive, and hard to handle (insert … Continue reading Project: Epicyon
Holy smokes, what new hotness has ol' Bill Wilson unleashed on us this time? Huh. Kinda looks like a .300BLK. There's probably some sort of ballistic special-sauce that isn't obvious. Let's look a little closer... That's just re... -dundant. What does this do that the .300BLK doesn't? Uhh... add like 100 fps to a supersonic … Continue reading The New 300 HAM’R From Wilson Combat!
Oh, s*** boys! Here we go again! Register here: https://practiscore.com/twilight-run-n-gun-1/register It looks to be the same deal as the last time. 5k, at night, bring your own illumination. Divisions are 2-gun, PCC, and Night Vision, no equipment limits within those divisions. If you feel like you can hump it for 3 miles, you are free to … Continue reading Twilight Run ‘N Gun 2018, PART TWO
Before we start, let's get this out of the way: Repeal the NFA! Got that out of your system? Good. Let's move on. I was first introduced to the idea of a pinned & welded AR barrel in about 2011. NFA laws being what they are, a rifle has to have a barrel of 16"+ … Continue reading The Idiocy of the “Pinned & Welded” Barrel
There is a defensive rifle competition each month only a few hours' drive from me, at Oil Capital Rod & Gun Club. This make the second time I've attended, the previous time being June 2017. It's not a complicated affair, and I'd actually say it's a good candidate for a person's first match. The stages … Continue reading Practical Rifle Competition, August 2018
