Rifle Ergonomics: Optimizing Your AR Setup

Even with a clear definition, few words are misused so frequently.

Unlike a phone o...[ Read More ]

We now live in the Era of the Carbine Course. As shooters, we’re always inclined to believe we’re ahead of the curve. Often, this thinking extends to shooting practices that we’ve never trained for—self-defense included. This overestimation of ability (known as the Dunning-Kruger effect) isn’t exclusive to the shooting community either. One study reported that 90% of drivers believe their driving ability to be abo...[ Read More ]
