Do you even press-check, bro?

M&P9 press-check

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?

Today on “Dumb guns I want”

Deagle brand deagle

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? Plus, this one is a .357 Magnum, so you know with that weird brake/porting assembly up front it’s just going to shoot fire everywhere, be loud as f***, and completely retarded and totally awesome.

The Ultimate IDPA gun?

Tanfoglio Limited Stock

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.

USPSA Single Stack Ready: Kimber Team Match II

Kimber Team Match II

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.

The best I’ve ever shot

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.
