“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow men. True nobility lies in being superior to your former self.”
Ernest Hemingway.

I am my only competition. I have always loved this quote and remind myself of it often as it becomes so easy to compare ourselves with others.

Our only real competitor is the one we see daily in the mirror.
Thank you for stopping by, thank you for your ongoing support.

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” ~
Ernest Hemingway

My only competition is the woman I see daily in the mirror. Everyday I go after her hard, always trying to become better than the day before, both in character and skill sets - especially shooting as it’s such a passion.

This video is from the most recent athlonoutdoors Rendezvous. A few of us created a little challenge to see how far we could hit with pistol. In these moments I have no desire to do better than anyone else. But… when I’m on the line acquiring my target the competition is on with myself! The challenge of beating a personal record or achieving a new goal is such an adrenaline rush.

This is the Walther WMP. I’m shooting a .22 WMR round (basically a suped up .22) at an 18” IDPA steel target at 500 yards. That HIT was exhilarating lol. Silly? Yes…. FUN? Absolutely!

The point? Try not to worry about “everyone else”. Embrace where you are, push your limits, and never stop trying to outdo yourself.

I may be way too excited about this lol. I’m such a hat addict lol.

I have been wanting this SecureIt Misfit hat ever since I took my position with the company. Only a few were made so I thought I was out of luck, but my partner in crime hooked me up! Thanks emsereno ! 🖤

Everyone: What gun should I get?

Me: The one you can actually shoot and shoot well!

What works for some doesn’t work for all. Choosing a firearm is hand and individual specific. Your choice should be something that’s WELL MADE, RELIABLE, and one that works best FOR YOU. Don’t get caught up in fanboy advice.

What works best for one may not work best for another. There are no girl guns vs guys guns. There are just guns and shooters. Educate yourself and try different makes and models until you find what works best for you.

Life often shifts to new directions when you least expect it. When this opportunity to join the SecureIt team came my way, I couldn’t pass it up.

I first came across this safe company a few years ago when the owner, tom_secureit reached out to me for consulting work. Since then, we’ve not only been great friends, but also valued connections within the industry. Tom has a passion with purpose when it comes to the safe industry.

I am thrilled to begin this journey with an absolutely incredible team! And… YES… I am still writing for Athlon as well!

I am looking forward to sharing some of the upcoming projects and collaborations!!

From SecureIt:

We have some exciting news to share…

Industry expert and firearms instructor Karen Hunter has joined the SecureIt Band of Misfits!

I had never shot a rifle from Lead Star Arms until I was introduced to this one a couple weeks ago.
Now… I kind of want “Lead Star” as my Super Hero name. 😉

Personal Defense World magazine has started a column called My Carry Journal. In this column they are highlighting their content creators by sharing our personal carry journeys.

I love this because we are each unique with different backgrounds, experience, and product choices. This is an amazing way for people to gain knowledge and obtain different perspectives to apply to their own personal carry journey.

While writing about myself is far more difficult than sharing someone else’s story, reviewing products, or discussing training and education, I am honored to be the featured content creator for the Oct/Nov 2022 edition of the magazine.

Featured in this article is my Nighthawk Custom Counselor and my Mossberg MC2sc!
