PHENOMENAL article from Rob Tackett with TacStrike targets in regards to “PANIC BUYING” of firearms. Not only does he speak with clarity and from experience, but he provides insights to emotions that many of us have undoubtedly felt from time to time when it comes to purchasing a new firearm.
Honestly after reading the post in its entirety I’ll honestly say it’s one of the most thorough and complete thoughts on preparing with firearms, making educated purposes, buying ammo, training, etc that I’ve ever seen. Rob goes in depth to explain how many handguns and why, the process he goes through to save up for and buy a new gun (of any kind) and reasonable considerations towards cost. I.E. you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on a reliable weapon.
Here is one of about 15 favorite quotes I have from the article:
What you need to do is pay for training (from a professional organization), pay for quality gear(for one gun at a time), pay for proper range equipment (like steel and target carriers). What you don’t need to do is spend countless hours on forums talking about arbitrary bullshit that is theory based and subject to a bunch of other average guys giving expert opinions.
In short, he says you can read and argue all the theory based stuff on forums you want, but none of that matters if it’s based solely on theory and not in reality.
