CATCHUP AND PREVIEW

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Attended the first all-women’s Glock match last weekend, certainly an historic moment for sport shooters.  Will report in more detail soon. If you’re interested for now I’ll refer you to the ongoing discussion threads devoted to the topic in the GSSF section at www.glocktalk.com.

The first degree murder conviction this past week of a pharmacist who killed a young robber in Oklahoma City has prompted some to email me and ask me to address it here. There is certainly much to discuss in that matter…more than may appear on the surface.

Still getting comments on the threads last month regarding police. Many have sent blog editorials alleging murder and cover-up in the SWAT shooting in Tucson. They seem oddly silent as to recent revelations, most notably a helmet-cam recording of the incident, that show many of the accusations against the officers involved to be false.

Will keep that promise to do a tutorial on “how to read” a videotape to get more than one side of the story. I thought it would take a feature length article to point that stuff out, and kicked that idea around with Dave Duffy. Dave made the excellent point that it would be better suited to an electronic medium than a print one for a number of reasons.  It will take a while for a Luddite like me to get “screen captures” to show what to look for on linked videos, but that’s in progress.  Most of my week is going to be taken up with other matters, but the above topics are definitely on my schedule.

I hope you find them as interesting and useful as I do.
