    Male instructor seeking information

    With your permission, I posted this earlier in the "Instructors Only" forum and so far have gotten no response. Here is my post: I'm willing to bet that most of us have had to instruct new shooters to lean forward, or weight forward. Have any of you noticed that (to me at least) there appears...

    Too much power for business?

    The bill now working its tenuous way through the branches of the Legislature regarding extending the "Make My Day" law (what an unfortunate choice of names, why couldn't they just call it the "Castle Doctrine"?) to your place of business is being strongly opposed by the Democrats on the grounds...

I would be really interested in knowing if the magnum velocity generated out of...

    How do you carry when backpacking?

    Although it is perfectly legal to open carry in Colorado, I dislike backpacking with a visible handgun as just the sight of a gun sends the bedwetters into a frenzy. I simply don't wish to end up in that type of discussion. My newest "solution" is one of the Ribz packs. It is actually not too...

    When to replace recoil springs?

    Is there a rule of thumb available to use for an indication of when to replace recoil springs. My practice has been interrupted lately and I have completely lost track of round count. Is there a generally accepted guideline or indicator for when it would be a good idea to replace the recoil...
