Mental Performance Blocks (gunnuts.net) – Caleb discusses a topic very near and dear to my heart. I think most of the time that I perform poorly it has more to do with overconfidence or psyching myself out than a lack of skills.
Don’t Shoot .357 (thetruthaboutguns.com) – Have I mentioned that I don’t think revolvers are a very good defensive weapon? Sure they can be good in the right hands, but here is yet another reason why you should just ignore the revolver when selecting a defensive weapon. Many extol the virtues and the power of .357, but it comes down to being a difficult round to shoot. If you are going to bring a revolver to the fight, at least use .38 special.
Training with a DA trigger (gunnuts.net) – A second good posts from Caleb this week… this one is about the double action trigger. There are a lot of beliefs out there that a double action/single action pistol makes training more difficult than with a gun that has a consistent trigger pull like a striker fired gun for example. Caleb tries to debunk this myth. While he makes some good points, I think most DA/SA guns have a DA trigger pull that borderlines on ridiculous, making DA/SA a liability when you need to hit quickly the first time.
