-George S Patton


I'm originally from Massachusetts, I now live in Santa Cruz, Ca. I have a wife and a Corgi.
This blog will be all based on my personal training and experience in the world of firearms, competition shooting and personal self defense.

Where have I been?

2 GORUCK Challenges completed, 2 GR Lights & a Spartan Beast. Eyes on a GR Heavy in the near future. Need to make it past the holidays first…

Pretty much sums up Defensive Shotgun 101 yesterday.

A little love for Special Operations Equipment. If you’re looking for great kit, head over and like OSOE. John and his crew make incredible stuff, all handmade in the MFUSA and have you covered for just about anything you might need. If you’re coming out to Defensive Shotgun with NorCal MedTac, OSOE has got your back with a bunch of shotgun gear. Look into the Micro Shotgun Rig (shown here) as well as velcro backed shotgun cards you can stick to the receiver of your pump action shotgun or smaller, belt run pouches for your shells.Oh yeah, and while you’re there, get a belt.
