postheadericon [VIDEO] Changing Your Grip For Better Accuracy

USCCA’s ‘Into The Fray’ series of videos offer some great insight into firearms and concealed carry. Their latest episode gives some terrific pointers that show how changing your grip can give you better accuracy when at the range.

Below is a written explanation of the change, and you can also watch the video above for the demonstration.

We all know that the one-shot stop is basically a Hollywood fantasy, so it should come as no surprise that we want to get multiple rounds on target quickly. The best way to do that is to change your grip to help keep the gun on target. I learned this method from Jason Speller at his DRAW school. It is so simple that it makes me wonder why no one came up with it before. Take your support hand and rotate the hand down about 45 degrees as you grasp the pistol this prevents the muzzle from dropping greatly during recoil. Yes, I know the muzzle rises during recoil, but with the traditional two-handed grip, we tend to push it back down too far, guiding follow-up shots lower. This hand rotation prevents that. Give it a try. You will like how quickly and accurately you can shoot.

Is this something that you’ve done? Are you going to give it a try? Tell us in the comments below and share your thoughts.

postheadericon Permitless Concealed Carry In Utah Dies In House Committee Thanks To Lobbyists — Better Luck Next Time, Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH — We recently covered Utah’s exploration of permitless concealed carry in a previous article. As House Bill 237 headed to the Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee, we expected quite a bit of push-back from anti-gun lobbyists such as Moms Demand Action and others. Sadly, we weren’t disappointed.

After emotional appeals and anecdotes delivered by both sides of the argument, Moms Demand Action managed to dredge up yet another victim of a shooting incident that could have easily been solved by a good guy or gal with a gun.

via Salt Lake Tribune

“HB237 potentially allows dangerous people to easily carry concealed loaded weapons in our state in public places, such as Trolley Square,” Anne Bagley, a survivor of the Trolley Square mass shooting, representing Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense said, and “allows people who have not passed a background check or have proper safety training to carry loaded weapons around children and all of us.”

A tie vote, 5-5, in the House Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Committee ended discussion on the bill for now.

We covered our discussion about this bill in this article.

To be blunt, this was deft political maneuvering on behalf of Gov. Herbert to avoid having to veto the third time such legislation has been raised in Utah.

By delaying discussion and delaying a House vote, Herbert essentially avoids having to make a political stand on the issue. His prior complaints were related to the ability of domestic abusers to have access to firearms without a permit. This version of the bill mandates that law enforcement would take a much more active role in reporting domestic abuse cases and informing those accused of domestic abuse, or subject to protective orders, would not legally have access to guns.

If any of us are under the mistaken impression that organizations such as Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense and any other shell non-profit are actually interested in gun-related issues, we really need to start dismantling that notion. These are political apparatuses. Like weeds in the desert, they only spring up when conditions are suited and fade back into the ground the second the water dries up.

For Utahns that have a legitimate right to keep and bear arms, tabling this sort of discussion is tantamount to politicians being afraid to tackle real issues.

On the other side of the argument, another woman gave her story of how she was forced to illegally carry concealed after her abusive ex-husband poised a serious risk to her life and well-being. She did pursue and eventually obtain a permit to carry concealed in Utah, but not before having to violate the law to protect herself.

This is a real life example of someone who can use permitless concealed carry.

Needless to say, I sincerely hope the Utah legislature reconsiders this bill in the future and maybe has a more proactive conversation regarding permitless concealed carry. It would be even better if they used facts and data to back up their arguments.

postheadericon Is Carrying Two Pistols Better Than Just One?

By Luke McCoy via USA Carry

Some concealed carriers swear by it, others call it excessive. Carrying more than one handgun for personal protection has some distinct advantages and disadvantages. Do you pack more than one pistol when you head out into the world? In this article, we’re going to take a long look at the benefits and limitations of carrying a backup concealed carry handgun.

Theory: If One Gun Jams, You Have A Backup

No matter how ready we think we are, there’s always a lingering doubt that we’ll run into the dreaded “click” when it comes time to pull the trigger. In those situations, we can practice for action drills to remedy a misfire or failure to fire. However, some concealed carriers prefer to just jump to a second pistol. If you’re equipped for it, that’s certainly an option.

PRO: Immediate follow-up to a malfunction.

CON: Failure to remedy the malfunction through remedial action.

Practice: It may just make more sense to practice more with the equipment you use on a daily basis so you can develop a baseline of expectation for what that pistol is capable of. If it’s not up to your standards, perhaps consider switching to a more reliable gun.

Theory: If One Gun Runs Out Of Ammo, You’re Covered

This can especially be true for revolver lovers. When that first cylinder is expended in a gun fight, there’s not a whole lot of time to fumble around with a speed clip or a moon clip. Sometimes you want to be able to immediately stay in the fight. Having a secondary gun can definitely be a great boon.

PRO: Staying in the fight just a bit longer.

CON: It may be better just to carry spare magazines and spend more time practicing combat reloading.

Practice: There’s no way of knowing how long a self defensive gun use situation will last. It may be five brief seconds or fifteen minutes. Chances are good that if the fight goes on longer than ten to fifteen minutes, you’re going to need to have the option of reloading or switching pistols. It might just make more sense to stick with the same pistol you’re using and simply reload.

If you’re worried that one extra magazine isn’t enough, it’s still more expeditious to carry another magazine than carry a whole other handgun.

Theory: Can Hand Off A Gun To An Ally

Dire situations can make strange bedfellows. Who knows who the man or woman to your immediate left or right may be when a bad situation strikes. In a defensive gun use situation, you may feel compelled to offer aid or assistance to those nearby. Having two people equipped to handle your opponents may up your chances of surviving. Having a backup gun means you can turn one good guy into potentially two.

PRO: Immediate force multiplier.

CON: Uncertainty in tactics and training.

Practice: If you’re willing to trust a complete and total stranger with one of your firearms, then you’ve made up your mind. However, if you don’t know or are not confident in that person’s abilities with a firearm (or their understanding of firearm safety), you may be creating another liability for yourself in the short term. It may be more useful to help those in your vicinity properly use cover and concealment until they can flee than surreptitiously handing out your own lifeline.

In conclusion, carrying a backup handgun in either an ankle holster or a secondary holster isn’t the worst idea in the world but it may be a bit impractical in a defensive gun use situation. You’re probably better served training to reload, fix malfunctions, and practice tactical handgunnery than carrying a secondary gun you may never get the opportunity to use.

postheadericon [VIDEO] Colorado Middle School Teaches Students About Guns; “I think that it’s better for them to have a respect for it.”

A recent segment on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt discusses a Colorado middle school’s different approach on guns, which is being hailed as a great way to introduce children to firearms and more importantly, allowing them the proper exposure to respect them and know how to safely operate them. “I think that it’s better for them to have a respect for it.”

And we couldn’t agree more. Back in the old days, firearm classes for kids used to be on the normal agenda. Sadly, it’s been stripped away over the decades and is no longer a routine class for many kids across the country. If it starts to come back and spread around, you can bet we’ll be seeing the beginning of a better country.

If the video below does not load immediately, wait 30 seconds. If the video still does not load, you may view it here.

WATCH: This school is taking a different approach to guns and gun safety: "I think that it's better for them to have a respect for it."
