I started shooting around 25 years ago but really took it seriously 6 years ago. Working at a local gun store showed me how much I felt I could help others become proficient and safe with firearms. That's how R2B (Right 2 Bear) was created.
Shooter that says revolvers never jam. Lol.
I carry appendix. I also practice with outside the waistband on occasion. However, since I am a CCW holder, appendix carry is how I carry 99% of the time. Appendix carry offers the ability to conceal easier than any other position. Plus, I can get to it faster.
Every 1000 rounds or so.
Shot timer, laser pointer and my gun.
It has its place, but pros can be that you won't wait until the gun is empty. Cons would be you'll have to wait until you have time to reload like behind a cover or a lull in the fight.
1000 yard pistol shot.
Is that even a question that has to be answered? J.W.
There are quite a few people I look up to professionally. If I could name one... my wife. Personally... my wife.
The satisfaction of helping others achieve a level of proficiency and the friendship it has allowed us to create.
Technically, the restriction against large-capacity magazines, defined as an ammunition-feeding device capable of holding more than 10 rounds, has been unenforceable since June 29, 2017 because of legal challenges. As a result, gun-owners were able to keep large-capacity magazines they already owned.
Judge Roger Benitez opened the door to the acquisition of new magazines in a decision that found California’s gun control law to be an unconstitutional restriction on the right to own weapons.
Hands down... Glock 19.
RMR for sure.
Glock 19 with Surefire X300 & Trijicon RMR, Spydco Edura Knife, Streamlight Protac Handheld Light, CAT Tourniquet, Tier One Concealed Axis Slim & Kore Essentials EDC Belt.
Basically any ball ammunition for practice and Speer Gold Dot 147 gr.
I'm using Liquid Eyewear at the moment.
Ease of use and durability. Low profile. Oh and how easy it is to adjust after you've eaten way too much. Lol.
I'm always practicing my draw so my belt really takes a beating. Just the overall performance of the belt.
Being a husband and a father to my three kids.
It's not about me anymore. I come fourth.
ALWAYS be kind to others and treat everyone with the level of respect they deserve.
Asking non-professionals for advice on guns, fundamentals, training etc. Stop asking your friends. Seek experienced shooters.
Gun is always pointed down range at all times and inside of your stall until you are ready to leave.
Ask as many questions as possible. Always seek advice.
