Here’s another nice video on cross-draw holsters from Lee Laster and Expert Village. Lee talks about the cross-draw holster which is not very common as a carry option but there are those who prefer this type of carry.

Different Holsters Require Different Techniques

Here’s another nice instructional video from Lee Laster and Expert Village talking about different holsters and the techniques of drawing that are unique to each.

Another good instructional video on shooting and arm/hand position from Lee Laster and Expert Village. These are good tips even for someone who’s been shooting for a while.

Epic Fail-Shot In The Leg!

From www.epicfail.com, a funny/disturbing tale of one man’s heroic trip to the range.  The moral of this video? Don’t touch the trigger until your ready to fire! Okay, it’s funny because he didn’t injure himself seriously but not so funny when you think about untrained people carrying loaded guns. This is the reason I publish […]

Proper Foot Position For Pistol Shooting

Short video from Lee Laster and Expert Village on the importance of foot position and stance while shooting.

Isosceles Stance Not The Best

Here’s a video demonstration of the isosceles stance by Lee Laster and Expert Village. The isosceles stance is probably the most widely taught and recognized shooting stance thanks to television cop shows like Starsky and Hutch as mentioned in the video. An isosceles triangle has at least two equal sides, so our legs form the […]

Best Handguns For A Woman

Pretty good video discussing the pros and cons of different types of handguns suitable for women. This video may be a little controversial because she states that a woman should not look at a semi-automatic pistol as a choice for a first weapon due to long trigger pull and complexity of the gun unless they […]
