Firearm Training & Practice

“One is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully.”

-Lt. COL. Jeff Cooper, U.S.M.C.-

Practice Results:

If you are getting 100% of your hits where you want them to be then you are not pushing yourself hard enough.

If you are getting only 70% of your hits where you want them you are pushing yourself too hard.

You should be getting 90%.

Gun Range Box Checklist:

This is a list of items that will make your trip to the gun range much more enjoyable and productive:

  • Set of small and medium size screw-drivers
  • Set of Allen wrenches
  • Tube of “blue” Loctite Threadlocker (non-permanent)
  • Spotting scope (if shooting distances to far to see where the rounds are hitting)
  • Heavy duty staple gun plus extra staples
  • Sharpie marker (to mark targets)
  • Baby butt-wipes (To clean the gun-shot residue off your hands after shooting. Remove them from their plastic box and place in a big Zip-Lock bag so that they do not dry out.)
  • Wide masking tape (To tape paper targets to cardboard. Don’t buy cheap tape. It will not tear well and will become a thorn in your side when trying to tape up targets.)
