Tempted by a Deer Rifle

Tempted by a Deer Rifle

Every year, after Thanksgiving Dinner, my wife’s side of the family has a tradition of making and exchanging Secret Santa lists. My list typically consists of items I find flipping through a store circular or gift cards for stores that I frequent. This year I was caught off guard when my in-laws gave me $100 Cabela’s Gift Certificate. Ever since Christmas I’ve been periodically eyeing up the sale flyers looking for something to spend it on. My initial plan was […]

Have you hung up the gun for good?

Have you hung up the gun for good?

Yesterday morning I was stuck at the office and bored out of my mind. The internet seemed to be completely dead. Nothing going on with Facebook or Twitter and my RSS Feed contained a handful of updates, all of which I cared nothing about. With my morning break quickly coming to a close, I wanted to do something productive. I grabbed a scratch pad and decided to jot down some post ideas. Maybe one less inspiring idea would lead the […]

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. I’ve missed so much in such a short time. Thanks to Facebook and YouTube, I’ve […]

Prepping To Reload My Own Ammo

Prepping To Reload My Own Ammo

Earlier this year I found myself in a bit of a predicament. I wanted to continue shooting USPSA but factory ammo was scarce and, what was available was rather expensive. If I wanted to continue to shoot I would either need to sell an organ to cover the cost of ammo or start reloading. Since I’m kind of fond of my insides, I needed to begin taking the steps to reload my own ammunition. The first step in the process […]

Why are Sanctioned Match Fees on the Rise?

Why are Sanctioned Match Fees on the Rise?

This morning I was sitting at my desk when my phone buzzed. I glanced down to see that an email had come in through the WaltInPA Contact Form. 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 […]
