Just Getting Started

Just Getting Started (2/5)



  1. I don't follow his writing; so, I don't know if this is a common practice of his.
  2. The author of that article is either ignorant or attempting to be inflammatory. The MPDC policy does not apply to USSS agents. USSS policy applies, and the agent(s)' actions will be investigated under that policy and the applicable laws.
  3. Speaking of John Murphy's class, here is an interview with John and some of his recent students:
  4. I was just in Nashville at the Royal Range teaching this past weekend. I'll be there next year but don't know the dates. You can follow my class announcements here. John Murphy will be there in November with his excellent traveling road show.
  5. I have attended this presentation. It's well done.
  6. Standing there with a gun in your hand is a bad plan.
  7. Chris Cypert of Citizens Defense Research and I teamed up for this video on making the 911 call in the event of a range injury or accident.
  8. I can't speak to them, but right in Murfreesboro you have Citizens Safety Academy, and they are top shelf. Ryan McCann is also in the area, and I highly recommend him.
  9. Please elaborate on having the revolver higher in your line of sight for reloads. What were you doing previously, and what are you doing now?
  10. Link to YouTube Video Here's CJ, one of the students, running the 4+1 Transition Drill with a Tac14 in 20ga. I like this drill because it has many layers to it. The shooter starts at gunbox/cruiser ready and has to get the gun into action. Then they hit both outside targets (long transitions), both inside targets (more transitions), and ends with an emergency load to the center target. With only five rounds, we are practicing numerous skills. One issue with 20ga shotguns for defensive use is that there is not, in my opinion, a quality defensive buckshot load available for them. One must account for every pellet sent downrange, and quite frankly, I have yet to find a 20ga load with a good enough pattern beyond 7-10 yards to use with confidence. Here are pics of a Rio (I know) load I asked CJ to test in his gun. I didn't get pics of the Winchester Super X load he also tested, but it was worse. One round was fired at seven and 15 yards with three rounds fired at 25 yards. Note how many pellets are outside of the body of this large silhouette. For comparison, here is the same test shot with Federal 8-pellet reduced recoil FliteControl: I also ran the same test with some Federal "black pack" 9-pellet 00 buck. It held it's own out to 15 yards, but at 25 I had a pellet off of the body and several outside of the effective zones.
  11. Roger that. That was a fun class. I'll actually be in Murfreesboro teaching this weekend
