Which is better for defensive shooting, IDPA or USPSA?

Well, it’s the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and I felt like beating an already dead horse just a little bit harder. But in all seriousness, I get asked this question a lot: “If I can only do one shooting sport, which one should it be?”

Hey, it’s almost Black Friday, why don’t you buy some of the best tactical pants ever?

Final score: 99/100
10-8 Performance Test: Passed
Parts Breakages: None
Armorer issues: None
Failures to complete the cycle of operations: 1

Concealed Carry Basics: Drawing from concealment at the AIWB position

Today’s video we’re going over how I draw my gun. I’ve tried over the years to make this movement as simple as possible and remove unnecessary steps from my draw.

The video I reference is this one: Appendix Carry 101.

Rock Island Armory 9mm 1911

This past week I spent some time out in Iowa doing some ammo testing for a project I have coming up. I decided to bring the Rock Island 1911 out to test their 9mm offerings, and as usual I was completely satisfied with its performance. The video is mostly me just messing around and wasting ammo, but it’s neat to see how flat the gun runs with 147gr match ammo.

As of today, the Rock Island has 3040 rounds on it…still with zero failures of any type. This gun is absolutely a triumph, and one of my favorite guns of all time.

Sig Sauer Nightmare Fastback Update

The Sig Nightmare Fastback is now at approximately 1700 rounds, and we’re closing in on the finish line. However, it’s begun to develop an unusual tendency to double feed when using Winchester white box ammo. After some testing, I’ve come to the conclusion that this is likely because the WWB has a shorter OAL than all the other types of ammo I’ve used. The question then is should I count these malfunctions against the gun? I’ve not been able to reproduce them with any other brand of ammo.
