Ah, the press check. The way truly paranoid people make sure the bullet gremlins haven’t magically removed the round from the chamber of your carry gun. Some people will say that it’s an unnecessary measure that can cause bullet setback, and other people say it should be an essential part of your daily routine. So bro, do you even press check?

A ported Deagle brand Deagle? Yes please. Can you imagine how rad/stupid this would be with an Aimpoint H1 in a low mount clamped on to the forward rail?

Ever since I made the Tanfoglio cool by shooting it at Bianchi Cup in 2012, the Stock/Elite line of guns has been taking off in USPSA Production division. But it hasn’t really been adopted by IDPA shooters, partly because it weighs approximately 1.8 million pounds and was hard to sneak under IDPA’s weight requirements.
I’m thinking of getting back into either Single Stack or L10 later this year. Those have always been my favorite semi-auto divisions, because the equipment you can run in them is frequently more relevant to what people carry every day than Production is anymore. Now that Production is being overtaken by 43 ounce DA/SA steel pastablasters, maybe it’s time to go old school.
We all have that moment – the sun is shining, birds are singing, your sights look good, the trigger feels just right, and you shoot better than you’ve ever shot anything before, or maybe ever again. I’ve seen guys at that moment, and I was fortunate to capture my personal experience with that moment on video.
To this day, that Tanfo Stock II in .38 Super is the best pure competition gun I’ve ever shot.
Back on April Fool’s Day I ran a joking “review” of the UMP45 where I pulled all the gun’s data from Battlefield: Hardline. I had fun writing it, but what I didn’t touch on is the fact that I’m utterly stupid for the UMP45 and would move heaven and earth to get one.
