PolyCase Ammunition introduced the company's innovative line of injection-molded, copper-and-polymer bullet-loaded ammunition last month, and one of the offerings made its way to the 'Desk.

PolyCase Inceptor 74-grain ARX 9 mm ammunition claims a whopping 1,475 fps from the 74-grain bullet along with 357 ft./lbs. of energy. Impressive numbers for a bullet design that, technically, isn't a hollowpoint construction (meaning that even in certain localities that forbid such designs, these projectiles are allowed).

PolyCase claims that the ARX design induces lateral force dispersion to increase the energy transfer upon hitting the target. The engineering involves hydrodynamic forces that reduce the possibility of overpenetration while remaining unaffected by clothing choices or other factors which affect hollowpoint ammunition.

MSRP: $29.99.

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?
