Week in Review:


  • Spent most of the week working on videos from the team at SHOT Show 2014! Lots of great content is posted over at www.shotshow2014.com for your viewing pleasure! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard this past week.  I did get some shooting time in yesterday and shot my friends Taurus 851 he got and the Pietta Colt Navy .44 Blackpowder.


  • I did not get in any live fire unfortunately. I usually get 1 or 2 matches in a month (Steel Challenge & 3 Gun); however, I did do my dry fire drills thanks to my SIRT pistol. Everyday I basically just put the SIRT in my pocket and fire at random Post It notes around the house (stationary drills and shoting while on the move etc).

Matt: Bought a couple new handguns, a Savage Model 1905 and a Smith & Wesson Model 29.

Steve: Returned from SHOT Show which was completely overwhelming. Attended media day at the range which was somewhat underwhelming until I visited Tac-Con which has a new “close to full auto” trigger system. Disappointed that Remington did not have the R51 available to shoot, only variations of the R1.  Made a lot of good contacts for future content for the FRN.
