Self Defense Classes
Self defense classes held every week!
Under the guise of tracking down another rifle for my wife as an excuse to buy a new toy (like I did with PS90). I picked up a CZ Scorpion Evo 3 Pistol, along with the SBTEVO pistol brace and adapter. I figured she would enjoy the more mild 9mm recoil than the 5.56 and 5.54 rifles she currently uses. Once it arrived it was very simple to attached the folding SBTEVO brace, you just remove the old cover and slide on the new brace. This gives the pistol very nice complete look. Almost too nice, as every time I bring it out people believe its a stock. Then the following weekend I threw a Primary Arms Advanced Red Dot on it and took it out to the range with a box of LAX reloads and some WWB. The CZ Scorpion’s “low profile” style iron sights where quick and easy to sight in at both 25 and the 50 which I left it at, and I co-witnessed the Primary Arms Red Dot to match the irons. This made aiming quick and easy.
Personally I think the SIRT Pistol Trainer is one of the best investments for dry fire, instruction, martial arts, and just about any practice that you could use a pistol for. This past week Next Level Training created a add on for those of us who have RMRs on their pistol and I went ahead and picked it up.
For $19.99 you get, well, not much, just a small piece of plastic that replaces the rear sight on your SIRT. In the rear it does have a back up notch that aligns up with your front sight post so you can still run it that way as well. I do wish though that it came with a higher rear and a replacement front post because a lot of people that run RMRs also replace their back up irons with suppressor height sights. So hopefully in the feature they will add a option for that. How the SIRT SPOT RMR Optic Trainer works is actually pretty clever. The SIRT itself has two lasers, one for trigger presetting and one for when you completely press the trigger. I almost ever use the presetting option, but with this it allows you to reuse it as the RMR red dot. So the first thing you need to do is adjust the laser to align up to where the red dot would be. For me I just aligned it to the fire laser to keep them in alignment. So when you set the trigger the laser shines and appears through the SPOT trainer.
It is currently Summer time here in Texas, which means 100 degree weather for days. And as much as I love shooting, staying out in that heat is a beast, and indoor ranges are usually packed, loud, and have bad ventilation. So during these summer months I spend less time outside shooting than I would like. In order to combat this I have been looking into different at home solutions. Being a big fan of airsoft and SIRT lasers I have come across the Smokeless Range by Laser-Ammo. What the Smokeless Range does that other similar products like L.A.S.R. does not, is allow you to use a projector or large screen TV. So instead of just placing a piece of paper, and pointing a camera to catch the light. This lets you practice against moving and reactive targets. Such as a Dueling Tree:
