2022-004 - First Shots - On the Range with Lexi [3 of 3]
This week, Rodney teaches Lexi the range portion of the First Shots class. The entire class is not included in this video. This video is NOT sponsored by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. The NSSF created this course as an introduction for new shooters, but it is taught throughout the United States by many different instructors who may teach the class somewhat differently -- though based on the same material.

2022-001 - New to Shooting? Consider the NSSF First Shots Class [1 of 3]
2022-001 - New to Shooting? Consider the NSSF First Shots Class [1 of 3]
It can be difficult to get started with a new hobby, especially one as potentially dangerous as shooting firearms. It is important to have an understanding of how to safely handle a firearm. The First Shots class, developed and promoted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, is an excellent introduction to shooting for those with no prior experience. Rodney teaches the course locally at The Buffalo Trading Company, and we thought a bit of an introduction to what this class is about might be helpful.

2021-012 - Stopping Power of the 9mm Luger
Following up from last week's video regarding the History of the 9mm Luger, we look into the Stopping Power of the 9mm Luger. Many have denigrated the 9mm Luger as a weak cartridge, incapable of bringing down an adversary quickly -- especially in comparison to the .45 ACP. We attempted to replicate the FBI testing protocol with 115gr and 147gr JHP bullets, as well as the NATO military specification testing at 50 meters with a 124gr FMJ into synthetic ballistic gelatin.

2021-009 - Trying to improve your shooting? Try this basic practice session at the range.
There are many ways to improve your skills with a firearm. We previously discussed the idea of Dry Fire Practice, and how you can incorporate it to improve your shooting skills without going to the range. In this week's video, Rodney introduces us to some simple ways to improve your practice sessions while at the range.

2021-008 - Understanding the readiness of your weapon - Firearm Conditions
This week we go back to the basics. How is one to quickly and easily understand what condition of readiness your weapon is in? If a firearm instructor at the range was to ask you to put your weapon into Condition 3, would you know what they mean?
2021-007 - Are walls good cover in a gunfight?
2021-007 - Are walls good cover in a gunfight?
This week's video is a bit longer than usual. We set out with the idea of seeing just how well a wall would work for cover. How well would it stop bullets from various firearms? We tested a .22 LR, 9mm in FMJ and HP, 12 Gauge #00 Buckshot, and 12 Gauge SuperTrap against a standard wooden framed wall with dry wall on each side. We then expanded that, to include plywood and vinyl siding, as if it were an exterior wall. We then added some bricks.
