Ken Park on Concealed Carry

Samuel Hayes introduced me to Ken Park at the Norcross Gun Range. This is Ken Park. This is him drawing and shooting the target six times with a Glock 34. The video doesn’t exactly say how fast. How about Hella-fast? I try to stay away from “hella” as an adjective, but it seems to fit. […]

The Draw and Shoot Drill Part II: Going Beyond Accuracy

    I’ve been working on accuracy for months. Dry firing in a small corner of my garage, after doing the dishes and walking the dog at night. I rarely hear about handguns being equated with meditation, but I’ve found that the acts of dry firing and draw and fire is as close as I’ve come […]

Norcross Training Sessions: Keep Your Hand off the Trigger… Slow Down

This is what progress looks like. I shot these earlier this week at the Norcross Gun Range. My last session focused on a Black dot. It was my nemesis. I had to shoot it five times in a row before we would move on to draw and fire drills. I spent so much time shooting […]

I first wrote about combat archery for my blog, Chadvs.com. It was inspired by a Youtube video post by the guys at Atienza Kali.

How Not to Suck at Shooting: You Need Schoolin

My father owned guns my entire life. In that time I remember him going to the range a handful of times. By range I mean an expanse of red clay and briars behind a friend’s house in South Carolina and the back yard of our family’s home in Virginia. We called it plinking, and we […]

Dry Firing 101: The Wall Drill

“I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once. I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.” Bruce Lee Sam Hayes (Caliber Training Group) showed me the wall drill weeks ago. It is one of those things that is greater than the sum of its parts. You practice dry firing […]

Maryland 10th Calvary Gun Club bring the Buffalo Soldiers to another Generation

I put this on my Facebook page a few weeks ago. I wanted to revisit it because I think it’s important. It might seem counter-intuitive to teach young Black men and women about firearms in order to keep them off of the streets. Not to me. When you put firearms into perspective within the Black […]

Practice More, Shoot Tighter Groups: I didn’t, so I didn’t

I’ve been to the range twice since I started Daddys gun. Both times I had expert instruction looking over my shoulders and correcting years worth of bad habits. Bad habits from watching bad TV where good guys shot bad guys while displaying bad trigger discipline and bad grip. First we discussed the proper grip and […]
