Why Isn’t There More Technology in the Shooting Sports?

Ryan in VA sent his email to podcast@triangletactical.net for this episode of the podcast:

Why aren’t there more technological advancements in the shooting sports, particularly with regards to match management? While you guys put the Nook to good use at the Wake County Action Pistol Matches, I’ve never seen them used anywhere else. One non-existent piece of technology that I think would be neat would be a shot timer that would communicate with digital scoring software and inform shooters of their splits along with their match times/scores.

Our opinion: just buy a Shotmaxx if you’re interested in having all that information.

Lansing, MI Mayor Isn’t Happy About Armed Citizens

“It used to mean something!” lol, this guy is hilarious. He can’t seem to grasp that people have a right to keep, and bear arms. I can’t even be mad at him, because his rant was so entertaining.

Gear that Doesn’t Suck

This week we talk about the Safariland ALS retention holster. If you need retention, this is the holster to get. The release mechanism uses your thumb in a very natural motion to release the pistol from the holster. It’s high quality, and something you should definitely consider if you’re an open carrier, or just feel like you need more retention.

You can get the Safariland ALS here.

The News

Some fools were “open carrying” in Georgia last week. Carrying a shotgun, racking rounds into it, loading it, etc. In Walmart. They’re lucky they didn’t get shot. I’m not a fan of carrying to make a statement, so I think what these guys did was utterly stupid.

Last week we mentioned that LuckyGunner won their court costs back after being sued by the Brady Bunch. They’ve decided to take that money (approx. $111,000) and donate it to pro-gun groups. How great is that?

Dryfire Drill of the Week

Practice some unloaded table starts. Pistol and mags on the table, on the buzzer pick them up, load the pistol, and engage a target with 2 rounds. It’s a skill that came up in this weeks classifier that I haven’t practiced in a long while.
