  1. Magazine Management For IDPA and USPSA Production

    Magazine Management For IDPA and USPSA Production
    IDPA and USPSA both offer great opportunities to practice with your pistol outside of a traditional square range. The main one, performance under pressure, is the biggest thing that most people need out of competition shooting to be a better, and more well-rounded shooter. But, to perform well under pressure, you need to understand how to manage your gear. So...
  2. Short Round's Rants: Pinning The Trigger Is Stupid

    Listen To Today's Short Round Rants: Pinning The Trigger Is Stupid   Look, pinning the trigger and listening for the mechanical reset was cool when JNCO Jeans were cool. So... yeah, not cool anymore. I've never made my feelings on this topic a secret, and I think it's hurting a lot of shooters to keep this myth and incorrect thought...
  3. Short Round's Rants: Ya Done Messed Up A-Aron!

    This one is a little all over the place. I started out talking about how to define the difference between formal instruction, training, practice, and even just plinking. Then got off the rails about how to choose an instructor, among other things... For those that know me, you know I'm a huge proponent of formal training, but it's important you...
  4. Introducing Short Round's Rants: The Eyes Have It

    I had the idea to start a podcast, but quite frankly, it's hard to peel time away at the desk to come up with topics, record, edit, blah excuse, after blah excuse. BUT, I do go to the range fairly often, which is about 15 minutes away. Pretty much the perfect amount of time for me to cover a "segment...
  5. Make Ready Podcast - BJs and Berettas

    I'm pretty good buddies with the guys over at Make Ready Podcast, and we (Short Round Supply) also sponsor the show, mainly because we like to support good people. So, if you're interested in competitive shooting, practice theory, Beretta 92 trivia, or just want to hear 2 GrandMaster pistol shooters take a guy to task for being too focused on...
  6. Short Round Supply Co.: 1 year later

    Tomorrow marks 1 full year since we officially launched Short Round Supply Co. I can absolutely say that it has been a wild ride since we tossed the lever. We’ve shipped thousands of orders, many tons of ammo, and managed to collect over 100, five-star reviews. Things haven’t always gone totally smooth, but we always do our best to ensure...
  7. Dot size: 2.5 MOA SRO Vs. 7.5 MOA Delta Point Pro

    Dot size: 2.5 MOA SRO Vs. 7.5 MOA Delta Point Pro
    How Do These 2 Red Dots Stack Up? Without a doubt, the Trijicon SRO was one of the more talked about products from the NRA Show, as it seemed to be the first time that Trijicon really designed a red dot with a pistol as the primary platform in mind. That being said, some of the dot sizes offered were...
  8. Amend2 Glock 19 Mag - Initial thoughts

    Overall, I’ve had pretty good luck with the Amend2 brand of AR-15 mags. Especially with the advent of the Mod2, Amend2 has been solid for me, although I haven’t truly run them hard (we’re gonna fix that soon). So, when I saw the Glock 19 mags from Amend2, I naturally wanted to give them a shot, and see how they perform...
  9. What Size Dot Should I Use For My Pistol?

    Red Dots On Pistols! Although previously reserved only for Race Guns that weren't terribly practical from an everyday cost or carrying standpoint, red dots can now be easily mounted on pistols from most every major manufacturers. Glock, Smith & Wesson, Sig, and many others are now offering pistols straight from the factory ready to accept red dots, and some even come...
  10. Hi Point Disregards the Will Of The People. Eliminates Yeet Cannon

    Hi Point Disregards the Will Of The People. Eliminates Yeet Cannon
    Yeet Cannon Has Been Yote. In what could turn out to be the most epic marketing failure of this year, Hi-Point Firearms has totally eliminated the most popular choices, including crowd favorite “Yeet Cannon” in their “Name The Nine” contest. Just what is going on... First off, let’s be honest. Having a “name your product” in a post Boaty McBoatFace...
