Renowned trainer Tiger McKee recently wrote a very nice review of my revolver books (Gun Digest Book Of The Revolver and my new Defensive Revolver Fundamentals) for The Tactical Wire. This is pretty exciting to me, as he is one of the most direct descendants of Jeff Cooper and is a proponent of both the 1911 pistol and of the “Modern Technique” — all of which, as you’re probably aware, are very different than my personal viewpoints! To have him find value in what I’ve wrote is an incredible (and humbling) honor.
Speaking of books, a few weeks back I interviewed Gila Hayes, author of the new book “Concealed Carry For Women”, on The Gun Nation Starring Doc Wesson. (Doc’s been giving me grief that I’ve not mentioned him sufficiently in my articles and interviews, so I’m trying to make amends.) Gila and I talk about the book and the thoughts and motivations behind what she’s written. It’s a superb work and any woman who is considering carrying a concealed handgun needs to have it in her library. (Frankly, any male firearms instructor should have it too, so he understands some of the things that women need to take into consideration when figuring out how to keep a gun with them.) You can listen to the recording of that show; my interview with Gila starts about a third of the way in.
Speaking of The Gun Nation: in case you missed it last week, here’s a recording of the latest episode of The Gun Nation Featuring Doc Wesson. Doc and I talk about the Combat Focus Shooting Instructor Conference I just attended, I review the new book “Lessons From UN-Armed America” by Mark Walters and Rob Pincus, and we talk about hunting season, favorite shotguns, and a whole lot more.
Finally, don’t forget that I’m a regular cohost on The Gun Nation Presented By Doc Wesson. Catch a new episode every week!
