Are you Prepared?

Can You Reload A Pistol With One Hand? Here’s How It’s Done June 28, 2017

There’s a big difference between going to the range to shoot a few paper targets, and having to use a firearm to protect yourself. A gap exists between those two situations that can be measured in miles. So even if you’re a really good shot, you’re not necessarily proficient with a firearm. You have to be prepared to use a firearm in real world situations, and those situations can be unbelievably messy and chaotic.

One thing you should prepare yourself for is the possibility that in an actual gunfight, you may only be able to aim and shoot with one hand. For instance, what if you were shot in the hand? That’s a very intricate appendage, and even a small caliber round could disable it.

That’s why you should learn how to fire and reload a pistol with only one hand. It’s very easy to learn, and could easily save your life one day. Here’s how it’s done.

And, it’s not just pistols that can be reloaded with one hand. The same can be done with AK-47 type rifles.

To prepare for a firefight in the real world, you have to consider the worst case scenario, and train yourself to overcome it. You have to abandon any immature fantasies you have and accept reality. No matter how good you think you are, you can still get shot in places that can significantly hinder your ability to shoot back. So don’t settle for just shooting at paper targets. Become genuinely proficient with your weapons, and learn how to stay alive in even those direst situations.

What Beginners Really Need to Know About Shooting Handguns April 5, 2017

Shooting a handgun is an activity that looks really easy, but definitely is not. It’s a skill that requires more focus and dexterity than using a rifle or a shotgun, and I’d wager that for most people, it takes a bit longer to master the basics too. That’s why if you’ve never fired a handgun before, you definitely want to take some advice from someone with more experience before you get started.

And what would be better than learning from the best? That’s what you get when you listen to Rob Leatham, a world renown professional shooter who has won dozens of competitions over the past 30 years or so. In the following video, he tells you the basics that every first time shooter needs to know before they pick up a handgun, and maybe even a few things that moderately experienced shooters might not be aware of. (warning, mild language)
