Gunfighter Moment – Larry Vickers

Saturday, September 6th, 2014

‘I was an early advocate of an ‘enhanced ‘ trigger in the M4 carbine but after seeing one double (fire two shots instead of one ) on a guy I became very wary of them. So with that in mind I was late to warm up to ‘enhanced’ triggers again for the AR platform. After using them again for a period of time I can recommend two brands by name ; Geisselle and Wilson Combat . The Geisselle has built a superb reputation within SOF and for good reason; they are excellent quality and are extremely durable.

I have also used the Wilson Combat TTU drop in unit with good results. Wilson Combat is famous for good customer service and quality assurance so between these two brands you can certainly find an AR trigger that meets your needs.’

Gunfighter Moment – Larry Vickers

Support the National Rifle Association – I can’t make it any plainer than that.

My trip to South Africa reminded me once again how fortunate we are to have not only the 2A but the means to defend it, meaning a strong NRA. Straight up, the NRA isn’t perfect and I would definitely do some things differently if I were in charge, but it is our number one instrument in fighting the anti gunners. I’m a Benefactor life member and have been for years – I urge you to support the NRA and encourage others to do the same.

Stand together or we will hang separately.

History has taught us that for certain.

“It takes years to become a professional but only ten minutes to dress like one”

- SGM (ret) Craig Maxim

I heard Max put out that little gem many years ago in Delta and it was true then and even more true now. Sadly, we live in an age where the Internet and social media has given the village idiot a voice – bottom line, not all opinions are worth .02 cents, and my advice would be if you don’t have something of real value to add to the conversation then keep your unwanted and unneeded uninformed opinion to yourself.

I’ll close with another favorite of mine:

“The problem with the Internet is it is full of people with nothing to say that say it anyway.”

– Jeff Cooper

Every now and then it helps to remind yourself of the K.I.S.S. Principle and that Murphy is in fact alive and well. Complexity is the enemy in many instances and never more so than when someone is shooting at you with hostile intentions. When it comes to fighting with small arms, keeping it real is always a good idea. Food for thought.

When it comes to small arms my attitude is ‘never be afraid to try new things’. You need to keep an open mind and look at the possibilities of how a particular small arm or accessory might be employed. The features of a particular design may have no merit in 99% of the situations it would be used but in 1% it is without peer. There are many instances where keeping an open mind or thinking out of the box has resulted in game changing capabilities that we now take for granted. Night sights on pistols, red dot sights in general and the assault rifle concept are just a few that immediately come to mind. In my experience being close minded in the small arms arena has overwhelmingly been a negative, not a positive, approach to modern weapons and weaponcraft.
