I’m Glad I Passed on a Winchester SXP Shotgun

I’m Glad I Passed on a Winchester SXP Shotgun

Back in November of 2013, a friend of mine invited me out to a Goose Hunt. Up until this point I had only ever hunted for deer with a bow (no luck whatsoever) and I thought a change of pace might be fun. Since I didn’t have any of the required equipment, I was loaned a shotgun, shells, and a layout blind. The Goose Hunt wound up being one of my most memorable hunting experiences to date. I had such […]

I Miss Rocking Out With My Glock Out  

I Miss Rocking Out With My Glock Out

Innuendo aside (admit it, I made you think of ‘The D’), I really miss competitive shooting. It has been a long summer and I am long overdue for putting some lead down range. Between my wife’s intense schedule, our recent move, and all of the other craziness that life has thrown at us, I haven’t been out to the range since the end of May.

My curiosity got the better of me and I reached for my phone. The message was from a shooter asking me to post an anonymous letter regarding IDPA Sanctioned Match Fees. Hello Walt. I was wondering if you would post a letter that I composed to open a discussion about sanctioned match […]

Designing a Fun and Challenging USPSA Stage

Designing a Fun and Challenging USPSA Stage

Practical Shooting is a lot of fun. You get to run around, shooting at targets, while competing to see who can be both fast and accurate. There is a place in the sport for all skill levels and it makes for an enjoyable day on the range. One of the nice things about USPSA is that stages aren’t typically recycled throughout the year (with the exception of classifiers, of course). This means that every match will present shooters with a […]
