    Hello folks, I am headed to Florida and was wondering where a good place to shoot was in the Bradenton area. Thoughts welcome. Thank you in advance.
  2. 1911 Carry
    Now that ranges are opening back up, I was talking to my small circle of friends on what do they shoot for a practice session. We discussed everything from various shooting drills, what carry ammo to use, what holster placement IWB/OWB and other related points of interest before the adult...

    I have an STI DVC Carry that I bought a couple of years ago and thought I shot it pretty well for my abilities. I recently bought an M & P 2.0 and put in an Apex trigger. Well @%#&*, I am finding that I shoot the M & P better overall: tighter groups and better accuracy at all ranges. kinda...
  4. Competition 1911's
    How do you shoot prone in stages? Are you a gun on the ground or just elbows on the ground or even a side prone shooting type of shooter? I like to get my gun on the ground and shoot that way. I find the sights return more normally and I can get faster follow up shots. If the stage makes the...

    I am not too sure if all of us can remember 14 things, but still, I found this gunfight technique post pretty entertaining and whoever wrote it has definitely done their research into military training https://thepreppingguide.com/how-to-win-a-gun-fight/

    I was not sure what section to put this in, so I picked this one. I took 3 1911's shooting Saturday. Full sized 9mm, Commander sized slide and full size frame 45 ACP, and a Commander slide and Commander/Officer? grip 38 Super. Zero problems with the 9mm and 45, but I consistently shot the 38...

    How do you shoot your 1911? High thumb? Thumbs forward? Teacup(jk)? Thumbs forward is much more comfortable to me but I see the ‘proper’ 1911 grip is high thumb. Is it worth it to change?

  12. General Firearm Discussion
    I don't know if anyone else might experience what I'm about to describe, if not, consider this a therapy moment for me :) Ever since I started shooting 1911's, with my right thumb on top of the safety, I have a problem shooting other non 1911 guns. For example, when I shoot a gun such as a Sig...
  13. Rifles & Shotguns
    Working my way back to the big bores I came across a couple of old friends that haven't seen the light of day in over a dozen years. Taking them out to play this afternoon. The scoped rifle is one of the last Farquharsons built by George Gibbs. It was built with German style sling swivels and...
