  1. General Firearms
    So for a while now, I've been printing my own targets from some random sites, but I actually wasn't satisfied with a lot of them, so I went and started my own site... For one, I actually wanted to run it by you guys to gauge demand. I know quite a few people do print out their own targets. But...

That said, your hunting rifle is not the best home defense weapon, and home defense weapontoday we are going to count down some reasons why that is. Now don't get me wrong, I like rifles and I own several of them, but...
  4. Training
    Yesterday me and my two sons took the RPD Basic Defensive Handgun Course at Rochester Brooks gun range. This is the second course I have taken with RPD, they are awesome. The instructors are VERY serious about what they are teaching, but unlike some folks in the gun teaching business don't take...

  6. Carry/Conceal
    I just received a new holster from Defensive Line Leathers and wanted to write up a quick review. I wanted a leather OWB holster for my Sig SP2022. All my holsters are leather, must have a body shield and no top strap, so I usually customize whatever I buy. I also wanted to get an Avenger style...
  7. Ammunition and Reloading
    I picked up a box of .38, 148 gr wadcutter ammo to use for target practice, a guy at the range said they also make a good defensive round, even better than lead round nose .38. Said it has to do with the flat surface being able to do more impact tissue damage than the round nose, which could...
  8. Shooting Ranges
    Getting bored shooting at 12x12" targets 50' away. Looking to do some practice with my gun for what it was made for - defensive shooting. Any ranges in the Syracuse area that I can shoot at 3, 5, 7, 10 yards? Indoor or outdoor is fine. Also looking for someplace with cheap membership...

    Police only need them to "intimidate and show power," according to Emeryville, CA Police Chief: All the law enforcement ass kissers need to wake up and realize that while a cop who respects your rights (all of them, not just 2A) can be an asset in the fight to for liberty, cops who do not are...

    We have been shooting a defensive pistol event at the Greenway club this summer. Getting a good mix of guys and gals shooting.

  14. Competitive Shooting
    Second run of the day was good enough to tie for top score of the day. I got lucky in my first run, if you look closely my last round fired caused a stovepipe. Tom's bad luck spread to everyone, I just happened to have the malfunction when it didn't matter.

    The CATO Institute (a Libertarian think tank) just did a white paper on the use of legal guns in self defense. I thought you might be interested. Here is a link to a summary page: Tough Targets: When Criminals Face Armed Resistance from Citizens | Clayton E. Cramer and David Burnett | Cato...
  16. Competitive Shooting
    I've been busy so I haven't had a chance to post these until now. More FTE, could be due to the loads being to light and being run through a conversion kit with a .40s&w ejector/extractor. The lead loads are most likely just to light since the plated lead rounds I've made don't have this...
  17. Pistol Permits
    I am interested in applying to have the restrictions removed from my permit in Schenectady county and I have read it will require some additional training per the Judges request. Where would one go about taking such a course within a reasonable distance from the greater Albany area?
  18. Competitive Shooting
    Run 1 I had a double feed, somehow I managed to not use any potty language. Run 2 was smoother, it's a shame I didn't get the camera started to catch Ron's bad joke. Well, see you next time, boys and ghouls!
  19. Competitive Shooting
    Opening night tonight It was good to see the familiar faces from last season and a few new ones too. I tried out my new Contour camera tonight. My 2nd run would've been faster but the malfunction made sure of that. See you all next week
