Classic sports have military roots.

Running, wrestling, fencing, archery and javelin all stem from military training. So does biathlon. Could skeet and trap shooting similarly evolve under the martial influences of riot control needs into a more socially oriented sport?   Home alone?

KSG in use

Refresher training.

I first took a shotgun class around 2000 with Greg Sullivan’s Defensive Edge in Minnesota. I was amazed at how much I was able to learn in a day. I’ve not done any shotgun training since. Time to remedy that … Continue reading
