Five ways to make your pheasant hunt better

Posted by Derrek Sigler on Apr 18, 2014 8:34:00 AM


The ring-necked pheasant was introduced to North America in 1881. It is one of those storied game birds that keeps hunters motivated every season. While many states have game preserves set up for pheasant hunts, no other state has reached the mecca status that South Dakota has. Wherever you’re hunting pheasants, there are a few steps you can take to have a better hunt.

The Best Holsters for Concealed Carry Guns

Posted by Jason Hanson on Apr 17, 2014 9:02:00 AM


For the past few years, concealed carry guns have been selling like crazy. And as any shooter knows, once you buy the gun, you’ve also got to find the right holster for it. This past weekend I was teaching a training course in San Diego. One of the attendees wore his gun on his ankle and swore by this carry position. He liked the fact that he could be driving in his car and have to barely reach down to draw his gun. He also mentioned that, while sitting in a restaurant, he would have easy access to the gun if anything occurred in the place.

Personally, I’ve never been a fan of ankle carry.

Bone Hunting

Posted by Mia Anstine on Apr 4, 2014 10:01:00 AM

It’s that time of year! The weather is getting warmer, snow is melting, and hunters are preparing for spring turkey hunting. Part of this is deciding which gun, choke and shotgun shell you will use. Another part of this involves scouting and locating turkey habitat. Springtime is a when we head out to look for those gobblers for upcoming seasons. While we’re out there, we can seize the opportunity to teach our young ones about wildlife and the outdoors. It’s also the time when bucks and bulls lose their antlers. This is a perfect time to drag our families, young and old, along to do another type of hunting: shed hunting!

Shed hunting is an activity that gets us away from the TV and outside to enjoy God’s creations. It is quite similar to the Easter egg hunts we had as kids. Regardless of your desire, or lack of, to hunt animals, anyone can enjoy it.

How To Rack Your Handgun Slide Like A Boss

Posted by Tom McHale on Apr 3, 2014 9:58:00 AM

Rack [rak]

Rack_the_slide1. to torture; distress acutely; torment: (His body was racked with pain.)

2. to strain by physical force or violence.

3. to strain beyond what is normal or usual.

In the shooting realm, rack has a different meaning (although the classic definitions of torture, strain and torment still apply for some people). For shooters, rak simply means to cycle the slide of a semi-auto handgun manually. Sounds simple doesn’t it?

Ammo_8_(1)Smaller caliber guns aren’t necessarily just for newer shooters. If you want to become an expert, practice with a light-kicking gun might be just the ticket.

25 Trigger Pulls to Become a Better Shooter (Handgun Training)

Posted by Jason Hanson on Mar 17, 2014 11:00:00 AM

Trigger-PullDue to time and money constraints, most of us can’t include going to the shooting range every day and fire hundreds of rounds, as part of our handgun training. Yet most of us can spend 10 minutes a day dry firing, which, in my opinion, is the number one way to improve your accuracy.

The thing is, just like any training, you have to do it correctly in order to see improved results.

That’s why I want to share with you my personal dry fire routine to give you an idea of what you may want to consider doing on a daily basis.

Using Bigger Guns, Smaller Caliber for Firearms Training

Posted by Mia Anstine on Mar 14, 2014 11:28:00 AM

Nanos2I met a very nice woman at an all-ladies, new-shooter, firearms training event. She was in a group with four other women. She had never shot a pistol and was a bit hesitant at first. She watched as all the other women took a turn.

They were shown how to safely operate, load and shoot .22 semi-automatic handguns and they appeared to operate them with ease. With the help of an instructor (you can read why we recommend professional help, when it comes to firearms training in this article), the four other ladies were quickly making holes in targets.

Gear for Your First Defensive Pistol Course

Posted by Jason Hanson on Mar 10, 2014 12:12:00 PM


One of the biggest questions I get from new shooters attending one of my courses is whether they’re prepared for it with the right gear. This is understandable.  Nobody wants to pay hard earned money for a course and then not be able to get the most out of it just because they didn’t bring the correct items with them.

Self Defense After Self Defense

Posted by Sara Ahrens on Mar 10, 2014 8:15:00 AM


With the passage of Illinois’ concealed carry law, all fifty states now offer their citizens some sort of opportunity to legally carry a concealed firearm. The intent of these laws is to allow citizens to protect themselves in life-threatening situations. Illinois’ law requires sixteen hours of training and/or approved experience to secure this right to self-defense through concealed carry. Having prepared curriculum for this training, I find there is one component of self-defense that is negligibly covered: articulation.
