    The caliber debate will rage on and certainly not be solved here! :P
    I carried 9mm for a long time. I still like it a lot for being easy to shoot under stress and having a lot of rounds. ...

    I used to press flat footed - but I have super short legs and had to use weights or a block to reach - I tried on my toes (also it's allowed in USPA) and strangely I feel I get a better activation in...

    Thank you! Wise words indeed.


    I ate pretty much what I wanted for 49.5 years prior to really making the current changes. That meant way too much fatty foods, sugars, processed foods, carbs,...
