    Pistol and Blades

    I've been shooting pistols for 50 years. Got involved in the "games" for a decade or so back mid 80's-to mid 90's. Been a trainer for the last 15 since retiring back east where I carried a gun and sometimes two chasing BGs for a state Atty's. Generals criminal division. 1911's were the choice then, coupled with Sig 226's, Glocks and 5 shooter revos in the hot summer months.

    Also have a penchant for the blades, was the adjunct defensive knife instructor for S+W's training division for several years. I prefer straight blades today, but carried folders for decades when working. We must have members who are into the shooting sports here, probably not as many that are into the blades.

    Presently working a few days a week at a gun shop so I keep my hand in it a little longer. I carry both most days, What do you carry for either?

    Sig line takes you to a you tube channel where you can watch some of the skills I trained others in until this last year, now I'm really retired.

    Being a gun guy and partial to some blades i get the desire.
    i am hoping that real discussion on various aspects of the shooting sports can be discussed.
    I am a long range type myself and like to do the long range precision shooting.

    Trained as a counter sniper at HK, Sterling Va. in 94. Lets discuss long range anytime. I'm more familiar with 308 ballistics than other calibers, bullet drop at various distances etc.

    Sweet...


    I am partial to some good discussion on variations.
    I own a Tiger Carbine and the Romanian PSL which seems at least for those two to be fairly accurate for being an E-Block bang stick.

    I also have an 8mm Mauser K98 I modified with a Douglas BBL and shoots rather nicely I might add.


    (Just dont have the high finances for a PSG1).

    I dabble in it. I shot NRA Highpower for several years, and have been in and out of USPSA and IDPA for over 20 years. Iíve tried smallbore, silhouette, trap and others. Most recently, Iíve done F-class long range.
    I work with/instruct for 4-H Shooting Sports, and two of us started a Youth Program at our conservation club not too long ago.
    Iíve had training from Gunsite, YFA, and others.

    I tried HK's loaner PSG1 when there. Nice rifle, should have bought one before they went 12K and more now.

    The E Block guns are more than capable of long range. My preferred semi is the M1a NM s/s set up with a Pride/Fowler 10x
