I found a stash of old photos the other day and this one brought a smile to my face. Pictured below from left to right is yours truly, AMU gunsmith extraordinaire Joe Harless, a young Max Michel and The Great One, Rob Leatham. We were in South Africa for the IPSC World Shoot. Somehow I […]

Blast from the Past – 2005 IPSC World Shoot

2005 IPSC World Shoot - Ecuador

One of my New Year’s resolutions is to get organized. I have so many photos and videos scattered in different folders and hard drives that it’s nearly impossible to find anything quickly. I am determined to change that for 2013 and have already started the daunting task. I thought for sure I would dread it, […]

Happy New Year - 2012

2011 goes in the books as one of the most memorable for me in my shooting career. It was very difficult to narrow down my year into just 11 moments, but here they are… 11. Adventures in 3-Gunning – I took a big leap out of my comfort zone this season and explored the sport […]

A Peek at SHOOT

From the moments I set my fingers to the keyboard to seeing Shoot up on major bookseller websites, writing my book has been an incredible journey and an amazing experience. In fact, the first time I saw the title and my name as “author” on amazon.com I squealed out loud. I definitely need one of […]

IPSC World Shoot – The Match

The World Shoot stages were simply beautiful. Courses of fire had either Greek cultural themes or those that featured the region’s history and mythology. The work that went into building and painting them was extensive. They were also challenging, especially for US competitors. Even though the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) is a region […]

IPSC World Shoot – Shoot Offs!

Walking onto the range the day of the shoot offs, the atmosphere was mixed. Some of the competitors were joyous, sharing greetings, laughs and posing for photos. Others were intense, perhaps seeking a bit of redemption after guessing where they finished in the standings. For US shooters, shoot offs are not something we get a […]

IPSC World Shoot – Mediterranean Sea

White cap on the bluest of seas...

What better way to close out a fun day of shooting than enjoying a great meal and dipping toes in the Mediterranean Sea! After the shoot off we stopped at Mike’s Taverna near the range. We had heard it had some delicious food and the owner, Mike was super nice.  After filling our stomachs we […]

IPSC World Shoot – Ancient Kamiros

Ancient Kamiros

Our last opportunity to explore Rhodes, my brother and I drove to the ruins at Kamiros after the shoot off. It was eerie walking through the ancient city especially with the gloomy weather, strong winds and bouts of light rain. It was easy to see why the people of ancient Kamiros chose this location to […]

IPSC World Shoot – Old Rhodes

I could literally spend days in Old Rhodes. It has all the charms of an ancient city and it was easy to imagine myself going back in time as I walked the narrow, stone streets with small doorways and arches. I indulged in purchasing a hand painted bowl depicting my favorite Greek goddess, Artemis, added […]

IPSC World Shoot – Valley of the Butterflies

Petaloudes

Petaloudes, the valley of the butterflies, is nestled along a curve along the a very windy road not far from the IPSC World Shoot range complex. The Callimorpha Quadripunctaria species of butterfly makes the valley their home, mating in July and August. They lay their eggs in September, emerge from cocoons in spring and in […]
