My name is Ed Pierce, I live in Las Vegas Nevada. I enjoy firearms for self-defense and sport.
I am writing this Blog to share my personal insights, experiences, lessons learned, and new discoveries. I try and leave the reader with something they can take away, something they can learn – from my real life experiences as an avid firearm enthusiast. I also write other blog posts covering reviews, news, and other topics that might be of interest to firearm owners.
I got seriously interested in firearms after my first four day defensive handgun course at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. Once I became trained and more comfortable with a handgun, and was ready to accept the responsibility, I began to carry concealed for personal protection. Then in order to continue my enjoyment of shooting, and to become more proficient, I became involved in the shooting sports. I regularly participate in such handgun sports as USPSA, IDPA, and Steel Challenge.
I belong to the Desert Sportsman Rifle and Pistol Club (DSRPC) in Las Vegas Nevada. This is where I regularly participate in the shooting sports, and go by myself or with friends to practice. Desert Sportsman in home to many sport shooting disciplines, and many State and National level matches.
There are many good organizations that fight to protect our Second Amendment rights. I currently support primarily the National Rifle Association, Gun Owners of America, Gun Owners of Nevada, and the Armed Citizen Legal Defense Network. There are also many organizations that promote firearm safety and support hunting and shooting sports, such as Friends of the NRA which I support.
I keep up on firearm information by reading magazines. A few that I read regularly are: First Freedom from the NRA, Front Sight (the official magazine of the USPSA), Tactical Journal (the official magazine of the IDPA), and Concealed Carry Magazine from the USCCA.
I also enjoy watching videos from the Personal Defense Network DVD Series produced by the Second amendment Foundation and ACLDN. I also enjoy watching firearm related videos on Youtube.
I welcome you to read my Blog posts, and to offer your comments.
