I get asked this a lot. “If I’m serious about self-defense, should I shoot matches?” The answer is yes. Absolutely, unequivocally yes.
I decided to answer a question I’ve been getting asked a lot. “What’s the best 1911 for concealed carry?”
Here’s the final review of the Sig Sauer Nightmare Fastback 1911 in .357 Sig. The video goes in to some detail about the gun’s final score, but we’ll break it down right here.
- Failures to complete the cycle of operations: 3
- Issues that can be corrected by the user: 2 (-10)
- Parts breakages: 0
- 10-8 Performance Test: Passed
- Finale Score: 87/100
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.
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.
Here’s our final video in the series on the four rules of gun safety. Today we look at Rule 4.

I’ve had a lot of people ask my why I lean back when I holster. This video explains that.

Now we’re at Rule 3 in the 4 Rules: Never point your weapon at something you’re not willing to destroy. Pretty easy, right? Today we’ll see what happens when we apply a little critical thinking to it.

If you prefer a more capitalistic approach, there’s always Amazon. You can buy neat stuff like this SOG fixed blade for $30 bucks and some of the money helps keep the site up and running.
But what if you need to shoot and your sights can’t be on the target?
All guns are always loaded, right? I mean, except for when they’re not.
