So, I just wrapped up another weekend of shooting at my first USPSA pistol match. As per usual, I didn’t come in last, but I sure as heck didn’t come in first as pistol is by far my weakest discipline. If you guys would like to follow me as I learn the art of the pistol I would be more than happy to contribute to a series of pistol posts called “Fighting to Your Rifle” where I (and guests) can discuss the finer points of the defensive pistol. A pistol is your PDW after all. As civilians, the pistol is on your person, the rifle is in your car or ready at home. If you care to read about pistol usage in relation to the rifle, drop me a line!
As for the Glock… it’s what I can afford!
I wouldn’t mind seeing some pistol coverage but the thing I love most about this site is the rifle ‘centric’ material. I commented a week or so ago that I’ve learned a lot from this site because your progress and goals seem to mirror mine. Great choice on the Glock and Streamlight TLR-1. I have a G19 and a G17 and I love them both. They are reliable and caveman simple; which is perfect for me.
Pistol is my weakest as well. Like you it is purely a PDW. It gets me to my rifle or shotgun and is a comfortable companion away from the previously mentioned long guns.
As for glocks .. as long as you change the plastic sights it’s a fine choice. I run a G23 with TLR-1 next to the bed. I run 8 other glocks plus many other brands with regularity. You can’t do much better in a fighting handgun.
(List of glock mods I do immediately when I get a new glock .. LAV / Wilson Combat sights, LAV / Tango Down extended slide release and a grip plug.)
I love the concept of this site and have been a quiet reader for some time.
I would be in favor of adding pistol content, especially in relation to how the pistol can support the rifleman.
Yes, I would like for you to cover pistol info as well. Thank you for “The New Rifleman”
Some pistol coverage every now and then wouldn’t be bad, but this blog isn’t called “The New Pistolero” for a reason.
You shot the NHRPC match too? Do you plan to shoot the May match this Sunday?
Not the may match, since it’s mothers day, but the next month I will be there or at southern chester sportsman’s.
Yes. New to ARs. Enjoyed handguns for years. Can never know enough.
