“Live Firing” featuring Anette Wachter

We’re excited to introduce Anette Wachter as our newest Tips & Tactics instructor. Anette is a member of the U.S. National Rifle Team and author of the 30 Cal Gal blog. In her first Tips & Tactics episode, Anette covers two fundamental techniques that are important to remember when shooting at a target.


I had the pleasure of meeting Anette at Shot Show last January.  She is very sweet, very tall and very down to earth.

I hope you enjoy her as much as I did.

Giving Back!

Firearms instructors have an obligation to never stop learning.  We also have an obligation to share information and teach people to be safer.


I had just such opportunity recently.  I taught an Awareness and Personal Safety class for the employees of a small shop near me. We covered all kinds of things from Situational Awareness to how to hit, break free from a grab, talk down an irate customer, calling the police, coping with a robbery and even the aftermath.  It was fun, they learned a lot, I learned a few things, and at the end of the class I think everyone had a new perspective. 



My new tag line might end up being Train for Real Life.
