B&T SPC9 PCC

B&T USA is rolling out a 16-inch barreled model of their all-new SPC9 series of pistol-caliber carbines. The SPC9 came from a European tender requesting a 9 mm carbine with the same handling characteristics and ergonomics as an AR-platform firearm. As a result,  the all-new SPC9 incorporates many of the features found on the B&T APC9, MP5 and AR platforms combined into one very versatile firearm. The SPC9 is lightweight, reliable and well balanced. It comes with B&T's reputation for accuracy, and thanks to the use of industry standard M-Lok and Picatinny rails and standard service pistol magazines, it can also be upgraded to work with a variety of existing optics and accessories. The SPC9 packs all these features into one of the lightest recoiling 9 mm carbines available, thanks in part to the innovative B&T hydraulic buffer system.

“The new 16-inch barreled SPC9 is a PCC competitors dream — the carbine is incredibly flat shooting, handles like a race car and has minimal recoil thanks to B&T’s effective hydraulic buffer system” said Jon Scott, Vice President of Sales, B&T USA. “We expect the SPC9 16-inch to dominate both at home and on the competitive field, thanks to an ideal formula of features. Those in search of a premium home defense solution would be well served by this very lightweight, well balanced and incredibly easy to shoot well platform — flatteringly so. Most importantly the SPC9 has a proven record of reliability, produced by a company who has built its reputation on being dependable in the most austere conditions imaginable.”

One of the unique features of SPC9 series is that it comes equipped with two different charging handle systems. One of these is the handle found on AR platforms, while the other is a non-reciprocating, foldable charging handle that is located above the barrel. This gives the user the choice to use whatever manual of arms they prefer, and both systems are ambidextrous.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
