Using the Velcro belts for duty and competition shooting is one of the best inventions ever. However, once you load up your belt with all the gear, the surface area of the velcro is covered up and the belt doesn't work like it was designed. In this video I show you a very simple method I employ for this problem. I do this to most all of my gear where I have to use lots of items on my belt. The solution is cheap and easy to do.

Robert Vogel shoots the shooting challenge in a smoking 1.6 seconds with a .63 draw! He's using a Glock 34 with a Safariland rig. I'm not sure if anyone can beat this time. This is REALLY fast!

Proper grip on the handgun is essential to not only hitting your target but also looking good. I found this video to be extremely enlightening and it made me laugh. Please feel free to share it as more people need to learn this "freestyle" shooting technique.

One of the most common malfunctions I see in competition shooting is a bulged case on a reloaded cartridge that fails to go into the chamber of the gun. This is a simple problem that can remedied with a case gauge and checking your ammo before using them in a match or at the range. The case is typically swelled so large that in the reloading process the case does not return to spec even with the resizing die. In my case shown in the video, the case was from a 9mm open gun where pressures are much higher than typical 9mm. The spent case therefore exhibits extreme swelling all the way down towards the rim. Most reloading dies are unable to resize all the way to the rim. I must have picked up the brass at the range and tossed it in with my own when I reloaded it for my Glock. You may also run into this problem when purchasing reloaded ammo from the people at the gunshows.

I've gotten lots of questions about how to strip these 1911 type guns and put them back together. I finally got around to my "spring cleaning" and took my STI EDGE in 40S&W apart for a good cleaning. I broke the video into two parts to make it easier and less boring for those that know what they are looking for.
