Concealed Carry Trigger Reset for Accurate Shooting

What we are going to work on today is trigger reset. Typically when newer shooters want to follow up on a shot they are pulling the trigger, letting go all the way and then they are pulling again. Ideally to keep accuracy on a follow up shot you should pull the trigger, hold it back and then gradually let it go until you feel a click and that trigger resets. From that point you’ve already taken up all of the preslack and take up in the trigger. You are right at that sear point and it’s a … [Read more...]

Cleaning Firearms

Cleaning is a topic, like most things firearm related, where everyone has a very powerful opinion. I’ve played around with different products, despite the loyalty some folks hold to this, that and the other thing. I will tell say, my favorite product for 1911’s is Mobil 1 Synthetic Motor Oil. Not only does it clean, but boy oh boy does that slick up an action well! For my Kimber 1911 pistols, I use Mobil 1 Synethic, while on my plastic guns I use the ever famous Hoppe’s #9 and a tiny dot … [Read more...]
