What I Learned in 2011

Looking back at 2011 I must say on a personal level, I am glad this year is over. Too many funerals and not enough weddings. But this is a gun blog!

Lessons learned:
  • A well made holster is required.
  • Don't buy any more cheap guns that you will never shoot twice.
  • Buy only quality optics. 
  • Always bring folding chairs and bottled water to Blog Shoots.
  • I can hit an 18 inch target at 250 yards, repeatedly, without a magnified scope, with a Cx4 carbine.
  • 922r compliance is a pain in the ass and not that hard with AK platforms.
  • I need to do more Skeet Shooting.
  • Tactical Bacon is pre-cooked, ready to eat and actually pretty awesome.
  • It's easy to travel via Air with firearms.
  • There are more ranges around than we realize.
NRA Convention:

I attended the NRA convention this year. I met a lot of great people. Enjoyed the show. Collected a lot of blog content.

Blog Shoots:

I Hosted a blog shoot at NRA HQ early this year (thanks for the reminder Andy!) I think we will do it again in 2012. I attended Northcoast II in Ohio and Mid-Atlantic Blogshoot in West Virginia. Both were big fun. Great friends and firearms!

Additions to the collection:

My big purchases this year were a Sagia 12 and  my Glock Suppressor!


--Here is to a great 2012!!

Well, you "hosted" a blog shoot in February at the NRA Range.
