Shooting and self-defense roundup

A few articles caught my eye over the past few days relating to firearms and self-defense issues.  I thought I’d throw the links up here for those of my readers who may be interested.

  1. Shooting Drill – ‘The Humbler’.  Greg Ellifritz gives us a course of fire that may look slow and easy in parts, but can be brutally humbling (hence the name).
  2. “Don’t talk to the police” — good advice?  Kathy Jackson highlights the pitfalls with this popularly recommended tactic after a defensive shooting, and offers some alternative thoughts.
  3. H&K and Backwards Bullets: The Real Story.  How H&K got egg on their faces at the 2004 Shot Show.  I wonder if the guy responsible ever got fired?
  4. An Army Of Knife Experts Share Tips On Choosing The Best Survival Knife.  It’s certainly a lot of food for thought.  I’m an African boy, and as such I was brought up with a strong bias towards K.I.S.S., so I’ll second Tim MacWelch’s advice.  Click over there to read it for yourself.
  5. FBI 9MM Justification.  From September last year, an explanation of why the FBI has retreated from the .40 S&W round and is adopting the 9mm. Parabellum as its issue cartridge.

Interesting reading.
