Any time you have the chance to take a training course, there is the potential for learning and this class wasn’t any different.  David Maglio led the class through the curriculum designed to teach and reinforce solid fundamentals in various shooting techniques ranging in distances from 4 to 15 yards.

Thinking about hunting with the 7.62x39? That's not a bad idea!

Magazines are one of those places where you can save a few bucks, but when you do, one of the things you might discover is that your bargain magazines don’t drop free from your gun.  On the range it can be annoying.  In a match it can mean the difference between winning and losing.  In a violent encounter it can mean you face the worst consequences.

It is for this reason that I recommend to my students that they make sure to select magazines that drop free from their defensive handgun.

CZ Vz 58 Rifle - Not an AK

Comments| Posted in The Mag Life By Richard Johnson

Ever see the Vz 58 and think "That's a funny looking AK?" That's because it is not an AK-pattern rifle. Not by a long shot.

My daughter has a responsible attitude.  She is respectful, follows directions, and has shown a very strong interest in guns from an early age.  I began teaching her how to deal with firearms at the age of two with the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program, followed by the rules of firearm safety that I use and that I teach my students.  She was a natural.

If you are looking to increase the capacity of your AR-15 but want to maintain the flexibility that standard magazines offer, you might consider the ETS 30-round Magazine with Coupler.  The built in coupler on the innovative ETS mag gives you the advantages of higher capacity at the ready while maintaining the flexibility of standard mags.

We typically think about handgun fit problems in terms of folks with little hands facing challenges when they are forced to operate big guns.  Having big hands and trying to shoot a little gun can be a problem as well.

In the past, non-factory 10/22 magazines with more capacity than 10 rounds were finnicky and unreliable at best. There were a few exceptions, but for the most part anything other than Ruger 10-rounders were sub-par.

That all changed with the introduction of the BX-25.
