C.A.R: A Unique Shooting System for Improved Accuracy

Keanu Reeves used a unique shooting system in his recent John Wick movies. I wondered if it was all Hollywood magic, but I learned he trained over an extended period with Taran Tactical Training and that he shoots 3 Gun-type scenarios often.

An Argument for the Mid-Size Revolver as a House Gun

With those leaps came the inevitable discussion about insurance and liability and employee policies.

Do You Need Body Armor for Home Defense?

Do You Need Body Armor for Home Defense?

I strive to be ever reasonable about “realistic” defensive skills as opposed to the fantasy band camp that we see among many in the shooting and defensive community.
