Glock 34 with extended/threaded Wolf barrel

So I took this to the range to test it at longer distances than guys normally shoot their pistols regularly.  I wanted to see how it would paper at 25 and 50 yards with the Wolf barrel.  This pistol has Trijicon Big Dot sites on it.

This is how it did.

3 rounds of stock FMJ at 25 yards.  All in the 10 ring.

This is 3 rounds at 50 yards with the same FMJ stock ammo.

8 and 9 ring shots.

Testing .45 ACP pistols for accuracy

I decided to take out a few .45’s and hit the range to see which one of the group the best.  Were they even going to be close?  How far out could I go with each and still be combat effective?

I took these Three with me.  Glock 21 Gen 3 with no mods, Kimber Desert Warrior with aftermarket threaded barrel, and an FNX 45 stock with threaded barrel.

 

45 pistols

I shot these groups two handed, with a pole for stabilization.

The Glock 21 printed below as seen.

This is at 25 yards.  3 rounds

FN 45 Tactical suppressed pistol

I got my hands on one of these to play with for a while.  My first impressions turned out to be my lasting impressions.

The weapon is light weight, low recoil, high capacity, and accurate.  Reliability was 100% with 5 differnt loads fired through it; 3 of which were handloads that another .45 pistol would not cycle reliably.

The suppressor is a SilencerCo 45 Osprey.  The pistol had zero malfunctions or issues of any kind while using the suppressor as well.

The clothes are Adder System CCW line by Berne Apparel.  The vest and coat are already released and selling online and in over 500 retail stores nationwide.  The pants are a sneak peak at the 2016 line of Adder pants coming in stores in just a few months.  Summer 2016.

Rifle Dynamics; AK-47’s

I had the opportunity to meet with Jim, the owner of Rifle Dynamics in Los Vegas at his shop during Shot Show 2016.  What a great guy, and the quality of weapons that he puts out is amazing.

I have been in many combat zones around the world and carried an AK-47 in all of them.  I only wish I would have had this quality of AK while on tour.

They can make an AK custom to your needs.  Whatever it is that fills your need for your mission, they can build it to overperform your expectations.

Can you brag about your pistol shooting?

 

The 30-10 pistol training program.IMG_9898

This week during a qualification and tactical shoot, I had the opportunity to see just about every bad pistol shooting posture/habbit/training scar a shooter could have.  Every one of these shooters are 10+ years veteran shooters.  Not new students.

Training scars and bad habbits have been built and reinforced for years.  The ONLY way to break these bad habits is training!  Proper training.  Consistent training, as shooting is a parishable skill.

A solid foundation of the fundamentals is KEY!  This cannot be overstated.  You can never shoot at the level you desire without proper fundamental basics.  Get back to the basics.  Dry fire is the basics.  This program allows you to practice at home, or wherever you are in just minutes a day.  This WILL get you shooting pistol worthy of bragging at the range.  Only 10 min a day, and no ammo.

Most will not complete this training, as it is not “sexy”.  They will spend their money on ammo and guns, and range fees, and parts, but will not spend $47 on proper training.  And they will never shoot the way they want to.

This program will not only get you shooting, but will also keep you current, and proficient with your speed and accuracy.

This is not my program, I am not selling it.  I recommmend this training product because it works.  Period.

The link to purchase it and start shooting better today is HERE

This is how the Tier 1 Military Operators learned how, and this is how they keep their skill sets up.  Don’t think that there is a shortcut, or a sexier way to get it down, if there was, they would be doing it.  If shooting live ammo at the range would get you there, they would do that, as they have a MUCH larger budget than you do.

Want to shoot like they do, then do what they do.  And they do this!  Or you can look like and shoot like the pictures here taken this week at a Gov shooting range.
