Plano Ammo/Accessory Box

If you've ever had to move a large quantity of ammunition, you can really appreciate a sturdy ammo box. Sure, the .30- and .50-caliber cans are great, but they're heavy, hard to open (especially if they've been sitting...) and come in unknown condition.

Plano's Ammo/Accessory Box is a similar storage method for ammo that lessens some of these qualities. They're about the same price as comparably-sized surplus cans, but are new manufacture, lighter and come with a latch that makes opening and securing the box simple—there's a molded section for a padlock if so desired, and with the prices of .22 LR these days... In addition, they're stackable and come with a seal like their military-surplus counterparts, so you get all the benefits with none of the drawbacks.

Whether heading out for an extended range session or looking for long-term storage solutions for ammo, the Plano Ammo/Accessory box is an inexpensive option. If, like some people that will remain nameless (certainly not your author, nossir) you are of the, ahem, OCD-affected, these boxes make excellent media for separating your ammunition by caliber. And bullet weight. Not that I get that specific...

MSRP: $10.99.

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?
