by Keith Coyle
This article is dedicated to my personal friend and Coaching Mentor, Roger Silcox, who I worked for at the Roses Wood  Shooting School from 1991 to 1993 full time, and then as a Locum Coach till 1998 when he retired. I am privileged to have been granted permission to use extracts from the instructional video “Shooting Straight”, which I assisted in the making of in 1991, to illustrate this article. I will forever owe this great man an immeasurable debt of gratitude in making me the Coach that I am today.

"First Impressions - The SIRT Pro Review" by Bill Mooney

First Impressions - The SIRT Pro Review
by Bill Mooney

Could It Be Love at First Sight?

I wanted to give you a quick first-impression product review of the Next Level Training SIRT Pro laser training pistol before I put it through the paces the next couple of weeks and finished a comprehensive review.
I'll be candid, I was a little skeptical when I first heard about the SIRT laser trainer. The concept sounded good, a training pistol the same weight and dimensions as a real pistol, lasers to show you where you shot, and a removable weighted simulation magazine for loading and reloading training. The laser trainers I've seen in the past looked like, well, toys. They seemed to operate ...

"An Alarming Trend in Concealed Carry that is No April Fools Joke!" by Bill Mooney

An Alarming Trend in Concealed Carry that is No April Fools Joke!
by Bill Mooney
I find it curious, if not aggravating when I hear a lot of noise how evil guns are when a firearm is used during a heinous crime. It seems like it is part of the required news reporting.
What about other crimes and accidents?
Just last week we heard of the tragic stabbings at the high school in Pennsylvania but no talk about the weapon used. The media pundits spoke about the alleged criminal and how he must have had some mental problems. He was a social outcast. But they didn't talk knives that much. When a gun is involved, watch out.
There are some very interesting trends happening in Chicago as of late. A ...

"Dust off Your Tactical Shotgun and Give This a Try!" by Bill Mooney

Dust off Your Tactical Shotgun and Give This a Try!
by Bill Mooney
 Today, I am focusing on the shotgun portion of the competition. Some 3 Gun experts say most time is lost during the competition with the shotgun. Competitors need to become efficient in loading and reloading the gun to save critical time.
Most tactical shotguns have extended tubes that can hold several shot shells. Most manufacturers are now creating models that will not only be great tactical and self defense shotguns, but can be used in competition. Most 3 Gun shooters choose a 21" or 24" barrel. With these models you should get an 8+1 capacity tube up to a 9+1 capacity. There are some models that will handle 10+1 ...

"Tactical Rifle Shooting: Zero in on Sighting-In and Snapping-In" by Kevin Reese

Tactical Rifle Shooting: Zero in on Sighting-In and Snapping-In
by Kevin Reese
While my rifle is ready to rock and roll, yours may not be. Maybe yours was recently purchased, your replacing your sights or scope or you haven't shot it in a while. No matter your reason, everyone needs to make sure their rifles are functioning correctly and shooting accurately. The problem is, many recreational shooters out there get lost in the complexities of sighting-in. Let's take a look at some sighting in. . . dumbed down for my own better understanding.
First you'll have to decide what ammunition to use. I discovered early on that with a 16-inch barrel and 1-in-8 twist, 5.56mm ammunition ...

"Concealed Carry Tips: How to Stop Worrying About PRINTING" by Chris Baker

Concealed Carry Tips: How to Stop Worrying About "Printing"
by Chris Baker

If you hang around the concealed carry crowd for long, you’re likely to hear about the issue of “printing”. That’s the informal term that describes when the the outline of a gun is visible through a garment even though the gun is technically covered. This is generally considered a bad thing, and many people will go to great lengths to ensure that their carry gun isn’t printing before they venture out into public.

I remember the first time I carried after getting my permit almost a decade ago. I stuffed a S&W snubby into the inside pocket of a heavy wool coat and went to ...

"Women and Guns" by Zack Phillips

Women and Guns
by Zack Phillips

The number of women buying, shooting and owning guns has been on a steady rise for the past few years and I see no sign of it slowing down. But who are these women, and why are they choosing to arm themselves? When I ask this question to women that come in our shop looking at guns, their response is normally for "home protection" or "self defense". But that is not the only reason, more and more women are getting involved in the sport of hunting and the sport of competition shooting.
The average woman is not as strong as the average man.  In a hand-to-hand struggle, even if she goes to the gym five times a week, the average woman is likely going to lo ...
