NATIONAL TACTICAL CONFERENCE 2011 — No Comments

  1. When I first read the title I thought this was the NTI event. But this looks equally interesting. Might try to catch next year’s.

    Out of curiosity Mas, do you think any of the lectures were recorded? Looks like a lot of interesting topics were covered there.

    Slightly off-topic, but it relates to traveling. Did anyone hear about the two Olympic shooters who lost their $15,000 shotguns thanks to the airlines?

    One reason why I prefer driving…

  2. Ditto Mas’ comments. Outstanding weekend with a bunch of great folks. Definately a sound investment of time and money.

  3. “There was a smattering of military, and I’d guess about 15% or so police, with the rest of the student body and staff made up of armed citizens.”

    Sorry Mas, 15%police is too much for this site ! You’re going to have to decrease your police association percentages to the acceptable 3.7% and no more. Oh and make sure you give them the stink eye in any photos… LOL

  4. I have a big gripe about your blog.

    You don’t write often enough.

    I have read your books and all of your articles and blogs that appear on the internet AND I WANT MORE!

  5. Dang. 70 miles away and I never even caught wind of it. Maybe next year.

  6. Major improvement for weak-hand use of semiauto pistol: extended or ambidextrous aftermarket safety, extended slide release. It’s inexpensive and can be a do-it-yourself project that’s fairly easy – even for the safety.

  7. Tim from CO says, “One reason why I prefer driving…”

    Me too, when possible but, it’s kind of hard to drive from Australia to any other country…

    Actually what’s more dangerous is flying with guns and getting stuck on a layover in a State that’s got severe restrictions. You absolutely cannot retrieve your luggage with the gun because the next day when you check in you have to declare it. Then…. there’s have BIG trouble for you. This has happened to more than a few folks in places like NYC and Chicago.

  8. @Captain Bob – I suppose driving to/from Australia might be difficult lol. But with Australia’s gun laws and all the poisonous critters, I’d move to the US. I’ve known several people from Australia and it’s nothing to them that sometimes they come home to aggressive spiders blocking their front door. I’m sure Australia is a very beautiful place but I don’t need spiders that chase my wife around…

    In all honesty, I could stay in the US and be perfectly happy. Being in the middle, makes it a bit more convenient to drive to places. Going to somewhere like Washington to attend FAS, as tempting as flying would be, I’d probably end up driving.

    Only places I’d have to drive to would be Alaska and Hawaii. Could drive to Alaska but that’s a long drive and I’m not sure how the laws go for transporting firearms through Canada. Hawaii is fun but since I carry now, not sure how feel about going due to the unfriendly CCW laws.

  9. I attended and had a great time. Learned a lot. Found a bunch of things I need to work on. Got to meet Mas, Tom, SouthNarc, and lots of other people. Was well worth attending. I plan to go again next year.

  10. Yeah, I think a minigun counts as an exotic firearm. -g-

    Oh and Tim from CO “I’d have to drive to would be Alaska and Hawaii” Errr . . . I think you might have a bit of difficulty *driving* to Hawaii . . .

    Hey, hey now…not so fast. Hawaii does have Interstate Highways after all…

  12. It was nice to see everyone.

    Thank you for the nice write up and kind comments.

    Announcement about the 2012
    Conference coming soon.

    Oops. Should read the only places I would have to FLY to would be Alaska and Hawaii.

  14. I had a great time at the conference and it was a bargain! I would def recommended it to anyone interested in defensive shooting. Good to see Mass shoot so well too.
