Capitalizing on the popularity of the Remington Tac-14 and Mossberg Shockwave the Remington Tac-13 represents one of the first semi-automatic entries into the burgeoning “not an SBS, not an AOW” firearm market. From the Remington webpage:

“The Remington V3 Tac-13 represents the ultimate in compact personal defense regardless of where your journey takes you. From the comfort of your own home, to the remote wilderness the V3 Tac-13 offers the assurance that no matter what you encounter in the world you will have adequate means to defend yourself or those you love from any threat.

BIRDSHEAD PISTOL GRIP
Allows for more ergonomic hold to help control the firearm and reduce 
recoil for the shooter.

HAND STRAP
User adjustable to help control muzzle flip and improve handling characteristics.

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM RECEIVER
For easy, comfortable transport anywhere.

13-inch LIGHT CONTOUR BARREL
Compact and easy to carry anytime its needed

RELIABLE FEEDING
Gas system optimized to run common light field loads or full power buck and slug and anything in between

LOW RECOIL
Patented Versaport gas system is self regulating and offers very manageable recoil in a compact package”

We stopped by the Remington booth to take a look at the Tac-13, and talk about what the future holds for the system. What makes the Tac-13 particularly interesting is how the new gas system is placed closer to the chamber than the end of the barrel. This allows for more consistent metering which aids in reliability, as well as shorter over all barrel lengths. In speaking with Remington they said that in their testing, the new gas system is the most reliable they’ve ever fielded.
Of particular interest are rumors of a SBS version of the Tac-13. Remington would not comment on whether or not this model would be sold commercially any time soon, but did confirm that several had been built for Law Enforcement evaluation. For more information visit www.remington.com.

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?
