What if I told you there existed today a rifle cartridge that has been around for nearly 150 years, one so large that its brass peals like a bell when it strikes the ground, one that launches massive, heavy bullets over great distances and is more than capable of harvesting any land animal on earth.

Beyond Dry Fire: The SIRT Pistol

2 comment(s)

Practicing for proficiency with a handgun takes more than just live fire at the range. Even then, live fire practice is logistically challenging for some and also expensive thanks to ever climbing ammo costs. Smart shooters will fill the gap and get good reps in with dry fire, but dry fire does not provide complete feedback for the shooter. Don’t…

Jeff Cooper, founder of Gunsite and father of the modern technique of the handgun. Cooper laid out a set of design criteria that he believed would result in a handy, light, powerful…

Ah, gun control. If there was ever a beat-the-undead-horse political activism trope, it would definitely be gun control. The apple of their eye pie in the sky cause that unites all the fractious, cannibalistic Leftist rabble-rousers and elites from the poo-caked hills of San Francisco to the gleaming skyscraper turned supervillian lairs of New York City. Thanks to the election…
