American politics will be even more poisoned and polarized than it has been for the last four years. Tens of millions of Americans will see themselves as disfranchised and believe that the greatest champion they have had in decades was illegally driven from power by the same deep state-media conspiracy he fought for four years.…Quote of … Continue reading Quote of the day—Patrick J. Buchanan — The View From North Central Idaho
Downtown Nashville after the bomb In this year of all years it seems somehow very unsurprising that someone or some group would stage an attack with a large bomb on Christmas morning in a major American city. What the motivation was, or who did it, is so far unclear. Yet, good news or bad, here … Continue reading Merry Christmas 2020
A dandy article from Lee Weems, one of the better instructors out there on all things shotgun. The story draws historic parallels to a topic I've written on in the past. Could we go there again? Link to That Weems Guy.
This is solid information in the first of a series from The Tactical Professor. Dry practice has been part of my routine for decades. From my own experience with it, doing draw to presentation drills weekly with your carry gear and an inert analog of your carry gun, combined with basic dry fire exercises a … Continue reading Fundamentals of dry practice — tacticalprofessor

A very timely article from The Tactical Professor.
In the current political situation, if you have teenage children and haven’t taught them how to shoot a rifle adequately, you’re wrong, PERIOD.
I have taught a number of teenage boys to pass the Ohio POlice Rifle Course in just a couple of hours. Girls could do it just as easily. It’s not the greatest qualification course but it’s short, easily administered, and someone who can pass it is a force to be reckoned with, especially from a fixed position or support role.
With the exception of the reload in Stage Six, the entire Course can be done even using a tube fed autoloading .22 rifle with iron sights. The reload can still be done with a tube fed autoloader but probably not in the time frame allotted. Although many people think that a .22 rifle can only cause a bee sting, they are sadly mistaken.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post on the whys and hows of patterning a defensive shotgun and in the comments on that post I got a request for an opinion piece. So in the interest of giving the reader what they want, here goes. Among the followers of this blog are the … Continue reading Pick ’em
An outstanding article from Greg Ellifritz. My own experience with batons in police service, while not as extensive as the author's, leads me to agree with his take... batons and impact weapons really are not a good solution for private persons looking for less lethal alternatives. Written by: Greg Ellifritz With all the violent … Continue reading Why I Don’t Carry an Expandable Baton — Active Response Training
