I met Chris Cerino at the 2011 Bianchi Cup, just after the first season of the History Channel’s Top Shot TV series and as he was just starting his training company, Chris Cerino Training Group. He had an infectious, positive attitude and was a great shooter as well. Later, I took his four day Diagnostic Pistol Instructor Course and learned more about pistol shooting than I’d acquired in the previous 30 years of shooting and teaching people to shoot. Cerino has an analytical approach to training shooters. He’s thought out the issues that prevent good performance and has a way of presenting them that’s both revealing and helpful.

I recently received a letter from a reader on the subject of long-range shooting and ballistics. I’d recently done a blog entry on zeroing rifles, and the reader advised me of some factors I failed to mention in the story. It was apparent he was much better informed about the science of ballistics than I, and I appreciated both his knowledge and his concern. Reading the email, and my subsequent response put me to thinking about something that can have a positive effect on the success of a shooter, whether for personal defense or as a hunter or competitor. Simply put, there is no substitute for mastery of the fundamentals.

Getting Old and Still Seeing the Sights

Some think that life during your youth is better than it is once you gain maturity. I am not one of them. I’ve enjoyed life much more now that I have a few miles on my odometer and chips in my paint. I may not be as strong or as fast now, but I’m smarter and I know how to live. There is a down side to having some vintage on your label, though, and it relates to vision. It happens to all of us provided we live long enough. Our eyes age and the fluid in them gets a little cloudy, the muscles that shape the eye to focus get a little weaker, and the iris, the aperture that adjusts for optimum vision in different lighting conditions gets lazy.

A Quick Tour of the Beretta ARX100

I've never watched the Transformers movies, but if my understanding is correct, those flicks were about 1974 AMC Gremlins morphing into deep fried banana splits, thereby earning free admission to the Texas State Fair. Or something along those lines.

Even if I'm a bit off in my understanding of the Transformers plot, you have to admit the idea of effortless transformation on demand is a pretty cool thing. Politicians do it all the time based on poll numbers and density of cameras within 25 yards, so why shouldn’t rifles be able to perform the same feat?

Many hunters have bucket lists of items they would like to harvest. The challenge in checking animals off the list comes in assessing the cost to hunt said animals and having the time to sufficiently scout the area prior to the hunt. Fortunately, for some, hunters can look to a guide or outfitter to do the behind the scenes scouting without using up valuable vacation days.
