Seeing the J-Frame sights

DSC_0288

The j-frame is an experts gun because its heavy trigger pull, light weight /defensive caliber and low capacity can pose a real problem for inexperienced shooters… But I think they have an even bigger problem for the shooter that wants to train with them. They don’t have any sights to speak of. This is even […]

Choosing a Concealed Carry Revolver

Defensive Revolvers

Choosing a concealed carry revolver can be a daunting task with all of the choices in the market and I thought it would be helpful to explain how I ended up with the Smith & Wesson 642. CCW Revolver Capacity Concealed carry revolvers are constrained in size and with the exception of the Colt Detective […]

The new WTBGU! Project Gun… S&W 642

As a reader of WTBGU! there is a pretty good likelihood that you carry a Glock 19 or an M&P Shield as your primary carry gun, but… even so, there is a good chance, at least some of the time, you carry a j-frame too. I’ll admit that I have a personal bias towards semi-auto’s, […]

20111116_Glock19

I may think about guns and gear more than anyone I know. I also try to be very pragmatic as I don’t really think of myself as a collector. If a gun or a piece of gear isn’t used for something, I don’t really have any use for it and would just assume sell it. […]

This week I got a tweet from Triangle Tactical asking what I thought about their podcast titled “How we would fix IDPA” and a request for comments. So here it goes… They start off by discussing 2 common grips that some people have that they have no issues with… cover and half-second Vickers count scoring. And […]
