CZ P07 Review: The DA/SA Glock Replacement?

After a year of use, including range time and carry, I thought it’s time to review my almost daily companion, the CZ P07 pistol. If you’re in the market for a DA/SA polymer 9mm, then it’s definitely worth considering. But know what you’re getting yourself into first. Let’s talk.

Real-World Review: Esstac KYWI Pouch & Shooter’s Belt

Way back in 2011, I found myself interested in action pistol events like USPSA. I jumped in with both feet shooting matches at my local club in New Jersey where I was as a green a competitive shooter as you could find.

That led me down a long journey and several belt configurations. Let’s talk about what’s been working for me lately.

The Dry Practice Tune-Up Challenge

This Marksman Challenge is all about tuning up your skills through the use of disciplined and recurring dry practice (the activity formerly known as dry fire). If there is one recurring theme in every expert I’ve interviewed so far, it’s the importance of dry practice.

Skill Building: It’s Dry Practice, Not Dry Fire

I am what you might call a “fan” of dry practice. I’ve written articles about it, extolled its virtues to my friends, and engaged in quite a lot of it. In 2019 I set out to do ten minutes of dry practice per day for the entire year. I did it, and I spent a little over 62 hours dry practicing, mostly with my EDC firearm.

Rifle Weight vs Balance: Why it Matters

Rifle weight is one of those things that always seems to be shifting, and that has a huge effect on balance. A lot of people put too much emphasis on the former, but forget the latter.

One of my current goals is getting more involved in precision shooting and competition. It shouldn’t be a surprise that precision has been on my mind a lot lately. As I’ve been doing more and more reading and research, I’ve come across a few interesting ways of thinking about things that I want to share with you.

Savotta Jääkäri S – The Raw Truth Review

I’ve been using a Savotta Jaakari S daypack as my go-to for shooting, outdoors, photography, and other tasks since the end of 2018. It’s time I laid out my thoughts on this Finnish backpack and why I chose it.

100 for 30 Pushup Challenge

This challenge is about the lowly pushup, one of the simplest and most effective exercises you can do. But, really, it’s not about the pushup itself- it’s about discipline and routine building.

The Pistol Fundamentals Challenge

The PIstol Fundamentals Challenge is my variation on the classic Dot Torture popularized by Todd Green and Dave Blinder. It’s a 30-round challenge testing your ability to maintain accuracy across different circumstances while under time pressure.

A Trip to the Gun Show, it’s Been a While

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase, “Gun Show?” I think your reaction is very culturally dependent on where you grew up, the circles you run in, and the kinds of things you take an interest to. It’s been a long time since the last one I attended, so I took an opportunity to hit a local one over the weekend. Here are some of my notes.

Project Gungnir: My First Precision Bolt Gun

I’ve written a lot about the AR-15 platform and its uses, but there’s a lot more than that to shooting. Allow me to introduce you to my precision rifle project, which I plan to use for long-range training and competition.

The Tactical Chest Rig: What You Need, and What You Don’t

Today we’re talking about the chest rig. Whether it’s standalone or a plate carrier, putting stuff on your torso has become the de-facto “cool guy” way to do things. So what do you need to know about doing it?

Tarred Bank Line: the Cordage You’re Not Using, But Probably Should

Let’s step away from firearms for a minute and talk about cordage. Just about everyone in the shooting world knows of, and probably uses, 550 paracord. In fact, we love to “paracord all the things” with bracelets, rifle slings, and more. The stuff is useful for a lot of reasons, and we’ll get to it. But bank line is another alternative that you really should try out.
