Triangle Tactical Podcast - Competitive Shooting, Mostly

Dec 1, 2014

Rob calls in a match report from his first competition shooting match at the Wake County Firearms Education and Training Center this past Wednesday. He shot his Glock 41 with reloads from his pocket, and emailed in his thoughts on shooting a competition for the first time.

Kenny called in on the Triangle Tactical Voicemail line (919-295-6128) and left us a voicemail asking about why we tend to bash the 1911 pistols on the podcast. He left two voicemails, the first one got cut off, but I liked it the best, so I spliced the two together as best I could.

If you have a voicemail for us, you can call the voicemail line at (919) 295-6128, or you can leave a voicemail from your computer by clicking here. Alternatively, you can just record something on your phone or computer and email it in. I’m not too worried about format, I’ll make it work.

The News:

Two students that were caught in the FSU library shooting were members of the Students for Concealed Carry on Campus organization, but were not able to carry (and potentially stop the threat) because of the law.

USPSA’s website was hacked, and many usernames and passwords were leaked.

Remington issues a recall for the 887 shotgun. It appears that something is causing the firing pin to stick out of the breech face which can create a condition where the 887 can slam fire when a round is chambered.

Tip of the Week:

When installing a new set of dovetail sights, I always put a glob of loctite in the dovetail before pushing in the new sight. It seems to act like a little bit of a lubricant when pushing in the new sight, and when it sets up it helps to hold the sight in place.
