Wndsn continues to round out their line of shooting calculation tools that require no batteries, minimal parts, and no electronics of any kind. Their latest tool is their Wndsn Shot-Grouping-to-Moa Converter.
From shot groupings to moa in one piece-of string operation with the Wndsn MOA Converter, making time at the range more effective.
Wndsn XPD, maker of low-tech, high-utility tools and instruments, proudly introduces the Wndsn MOA Converter designed to meet the needs of military and law enforcement, as well as gun enthusiasts and athletes. A tool for training and practice, the Wndsn MOA Converter enables the shooter to take out the guess work of calculating shot grouping MOA, eliminating mental calculation errors and increasing your success.
“What does my 1.85 inch shot grouping translate to in MOA on my 75 yard range?”
The double-sided tool provides two scales for shooting ranges up to 100 and 600 yards respectively and features twin scales for measurements both in inches and in cm for the shot grouping as well as yards and meters for the range distance. Both convert to MOA on the center scale.
With the objective of providing or enhancing “that, which can’t be improvised” in “low-probability, high-impact scenarios”, the MOA Converter expands on the Wndsn v1 Distance Meter, which did all the work except for one single calculation. Now with the newly designed line of metrology tools, you won’t need any calculation nor utilize battery power whatsoever through the use of even more elegantly baked-in trigonometry. Simply measure the shot groupings with the provided scale, then use the attached string to align the result with the distance of your range and read the resulting MOA. For hunters, enthusiasts, professionals, and athletes alike, the MOA Converter makes calculations effortless, increasing efficiency and speed while greatly decreasing error potential.
“Identify your shooting mistakes without the need for a smartphone or other electronic and data devices”

If you have ever tried to use a shot timer in your dry fire routine, you know it can be a little problematic. The timer’s sensor may not pick up the relatively quiet sounds of dry fire (as compared to live fire) or very sensitive timers can actually pick up the sounds of you manually cycling the slide which skews your data. The Morgan Timing Systems may have an a solution for all of those issues.
They are creating what they call a Dry-Fire Pro Timer that consists of two elements: an app for your smart phone and a replacement barrel for your handgun. The app will be used to display and record your data while the barrel actually syncs and reports data to the app. The barrel is actually recording what is happening in your dry fire cycle and, because it is installed in your firearm, it can differentiate between a firing pin/striker movement and slide movement. The barrel also serves as a safety device since it can not accept live ammunition.
After two years of hard work, Morgan Timing Systems dry fire pro timer is ready. Get precise timed feedback for your dry fire training drills with your pistol, your equipment, your trigger and your sights. Work through various techniques to find your best method before going to the range and burning valuable time/ammo. @kris_paronto_tanto @drew_m_dwyer @talongrips @glockinc @vortexoptics @zero9holsters @cheyennemtnarms #guns #pistol #gunporn #pewpew #glock #edc #fightback #ccw #concealedcarry #veteran #frontsightfocus #smallbusiness #neverquit

The Morgan Timing Systems Dry-Fire Pro Timer is expected to retail for around $129 (for the barrel, the app is free). The initial release will likely be for Glocks only with other models following based on demand.

Ivan at Kit Badger comes through again with interesting and useful content!
There are a number of great anatomy targets on the market including Sage Dyamnic’s free Vital Anatomy Targets. There are far fewer options for side profile targets of any kind, let alone those with anatomy references. That represents a real gap in your potential training options since the relative locations and the paths used to access vital anatomy can change based on the direction a person is facing.
Kit Badger just published a target (and accompanying information about that target) that is based on the Sage Dynamics Vital Anatomy Target except he has completely redrawn them with a side profile. This is a well designed target with the exterior profile of the body blocked in with bold lines but the anatomy presented with thinner, less bold lines. These thin lines harder to see at a distance so you must practice shooting to the relative positions of the anatomy rather than aiming precisely for a mark on the target.
They are free to print so you might as well print a few to keep in your range bag. Kit Badger Profile Anatomy Targets
It’s time to stack the training targets deep! RE Factor Tactical is offering free shipping on their targets through Wednesday.
You can count me in the camp that still believes that small frame, snubnose revolvers still offer unique and useful capabilities in a modern, semi-auto world. However, I can fully admit that they are a bit of a riddle – having merit for novices but also being best utilized in the hands of a practiced shooter. That riddle brings us to the same place that we should arrive regardless of the gun we choose which is a recognition of the need for training and information.
I’ve been following Grant Cunningham for a number of years. He has some of the most pragmatic commentary I’ve found regarding wheel guns (and self defense in general). His new book, “Protect Yourself With Your Snubnose Revolver,” covers an array of topics regarding the venerable snubbie ranging from its manual of arms to modifications for improved function and carry methods. The book delves into topics larger than just the titular subject by covering safety, mindset, and other broader self-defense related ideas. It also includes a number of drills to practice the skills covered in the book.
It’s time to start carving out some time for PAUL-E-PALOOZA 2017 – the annual training conference to benefit the children of the late Paul E. Gomez. As usual, this year’s instructor roster is stacked and the topics will be many and varied.

Patriot Stencils may be just the ticket for those of you aren’t crafty enough to make your own target stencils. Their stencils can help you add some visual processing components to your training with shoot and no-shoot indicators or just spruce up a plain cardboard target with a bullseye or zombie head. Each stencil is cut from a mylar sheet so it is durable and solvent proof for cleaning. They are available separately or as a bundle.
