I doubt I'm the only person who's arms tire quickly when shooting long guns. Frankly, when I'm really focused and doing everything as I've been taught, even shooting a pistol will tire my arms out quickly as well. But when it comes to shooting rifles and shotguns, which require the weak side to carry most of the weight of the gun, I notice my forearm begins to burn almost immediately. Once fatigued my left tricep serves as a very poor mount for my gun and for achieving a steady, careful shot. So I figured, if I was going to do this 3Gun thing right I should probably build up a little more strength in both my arms, and probably in the rest of me too.
By Gabby For Gun NutsIsn't dry fire training a great option for winters like these, when the range is an iced over highway away, and ammo is still so hard to find anyway? Too many people don't value the usefulness of dry firing. I imagine this is due to most people's understand of the definition of "dry firing," the inability of the shooter to judge if they are practicing correctly, or the spreading of the syndrome I have recently termed, "Dry Fire Training Boredom." To combat all three of these issues, and probably a few others, Laserlyte now offers a new training target option, Plinking Cans.
Most of us carry at least one insurance policy. Whether that policy covers your home, your car, your health or your life, in most cases you choose to protect yourself against the unexpected. Most gun owners view our possession of firearms as an insurance policy in itself. ...

By Gabby For Gun NutsLast week it was announced that Senoia GA, the city that is home to the production of The Walking Dead, is giving up the .40 S&W for 9mm. The Senoia Police Department has made a deal with Glock, in which trade-ins will be bought back for $300 and 16 new 9mm pistols will also be purchased. What could possibly make these cops opt for less stopping power, especially since new guns were not in their budget for this year?
Of all the shooting sports, 3gun requires a lot of gear (great for a gear head like me, not great for my wallet) but it's not nessicary for anyone to run out and buy it all right away. You have to figure out what works for you, and then build up the gear slowly. Some matches and stages may require a lot of reloads, others may require vigorous movement and your gear will have to respond accordingly.

There seems to be a simmering debate, that folks are not directly addressing. This is the question of pistol grips on shotguns. I was doing a little research on 3gun shotgun preferences and I found that in most cases competitors prefer a traditional stock. However, anyone who is a fan of pistol grips on their scattergun has told me that it gives them a tactical advantage. Is there no over lap between the tactical community and 3gun on this?

At this year's SHOTShow the Second Annual Women's Outdoor & Shooting Industry Dinner was held. Put on by Britney Starr of Starr & Brodhill African Safaris and Jacquelyn Kelly of Armed in Heels, the event took place at V bar in the Venitian hotel. The theme was Old Hollywood Glamor and, as you can see, almost everyone ran with it! This year the gathering saw some new sponsors as well as a few familiar faces, including Laser Max and GunUp Magazine.
By Gabby For Gun NutsI have now signed up to shoot the Brownells Lady 3 Gun match and will be sponsored by Gun Up Publishing, but up until last week I had never seen a 3 gun match in action. So I decided to head an hour south and east of Atlanta to South River Gun Club.
By Gabby For Gun NutsIn honor of Valentine’s Day (or in celebration of it passing with minimal collateral damage) I’d like to tell you a story of a great love shared by two top gunners.
One half of the pair, is a southern belle who is as sweet as she is gorgeous. The other half, is a northerner come south, who I have heard called, “the Michael Jordan of the shooting sports.”
