Some of our readers are full time operators and contractors that fight for us and our way of life. Some of our readers are also parents and Imminent Threats come in all shapes in sizes; from physical to electronic.
What I want to touch on today and bring awareness to, are Imminent Threats to your family’s finances. Threats so underhanded they make my blood boil.
Let me explain… [Read More…]
SHOT Show is almost here and I’m excited about attending with ITS Tactical. In preparation for the show I ran across the SHOT Show 2011 App by FOXPRO.
The initial reviews were pretty harsh; slow start ups, not saving information, maps folding and unfolding was annoying. Of course these were all for v1.0 and this review is based on what’s currently available, v1.2.
After downloading the app and registering with my badge number and zip-code I was off and ready to start. [Read More…]
When the Gen4 Glock came out, the two big improvements were the adjustable backstrap for shooters with smaller hands and the dual recoil spring.
While my every day carry is a Gen3 RTF Glock 22, this was often the gun that most people hated. A couple excuses were that the serrations on the slide look like fish gills and the grip was too rough. The grip does feel a bit like 80 grit sand paper, but I’ve shot this gun in the rain with no slippage. For me the RTF is perfect because I know that my grip will not slip.
When the Gen4 Glock was released, my first reaction was that I had to try it, but wasn’t compelled to purchase it after I did. The grip wasn’t as rough as my current Glock and the back strap seemed more like a gimmick. I did however, really like the dual recoil spring. It was highly noticeable, reduced muzzle flip and allowed me to get back on target quicker.
So instead of making a $530 purchase to give up the things that I liked about my RTF to gain the dual recoil of the Gen4 I started looking around for a dual recoil spring. I finally located one at EFK Fire Dragon. [Read More…]
A few months ago I attended the RSKTKR class hosted by ITS Tactical learning a vast number of new skills. One of the common themes at the class was practice, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. There are many ways to practice drills, the most obvious method being live fire.
Another practice method is setting up a range in your garage and using an airsoft or paintball gun (hopefully write about at a later time).
The biggest issue with live fire training is the cost of ammunition is so expensive. Although I have found a local company (in Texas) that has the lowest prices for S&W .40 ammunition, it’s still pretty costly (about $230 per 500 rounds) and reduced hazard ammo for the range that’s the same grain as my carry ammo.
