  • Canton McKinley Regional 2021

    After having several people tell me that, if they had to choose between either Canton McKinley’s regional or the National Matches at Camp Perry, they’d pick the Canton McKinley regional, I was intrigued.

  • Notes from Camp Perry Advanced SAFS 2021

    At the CMP National Matches this past month, I had the chance to attend the Advanced SAFS class that was put on the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (AMU).

  • 2021 Desert Midwinter Championship

    Earlier this month, I drove to Phoenix, Arizona for the Desert Midwinter match at the Phoenix Rod and Gun Club.

  • 2020 Cypress Air Pistol Fall Match

    A couple of months ago, on November 7th, I attended an air pistol match in Cypress, Texas. This was only my third ever air pistol match and the first match that I shot with my new air pistol, a MatchGuns MG1! Takeaways Probably the biggest takeaway that I had from this match was that I […]

  • Building a backyard air pistol range

    I bought a MatchGuns MG1 air pistol at the Arizona Desert Midwinter championship earlier this year. But, until recently, I had not taken advantage of this pistol.

  • Pistol Training 1-20-2020

    Last month, Destiny and I attended the high power rifle match at Northwest Texas Field and Stream Association.
