This post isn’t going to be particularly well laid out, because I wanted to create a place that I could collect all of my thoughts on the 2014 IDPA Nationals. I actually spent more time thinking about this match than…
Gun: Ruger GP100 Match Champion
Vest: Armadillo Concealment
Holster: Garrett Industries Silent Thunder
I’m also rocking my 4Wheelguns speedloader holders and Safariland Comp-III loaders.

Sometimes I get bored when I’m done practicing, and I do stuff like that. Then for some reason, I post the video on the internet, likely because I’m a terrible person and an attention whore.
