As you’ve seen lately, the blog has kinda taken a different direction, and has had less of the Israeli guns and gear focus over the past year. I don’t think it’s a better or worse direction for the blog; it’s just different. I’d also argue strongly it’s a better direction for me. As a shooter, I’ve grown a lot more functionally-focused, which has meant somewhat fewer toys (alas!) and a lot more training and gear. It reminds me quite a lot of the transition that Short-Barrel Shepherd made, which I think was really quite admirable. At the risk of sounding corny, the discovery I’ve made is that the gun isn’t what can be the eponymous “Hebrew Hammer”, it’s the man or woman behind it.
So, here are the new ground rules from now on: I’ll post on whatever I think is worth posting on in my day-to-day. I’ll still try to get some Israeli guns and gear in as it makes sense, but I’m not going to shy away from reviewing other stuff anymore. When I was upgrading my kit, I found it tremendously frustrating that there were not a lot of formal reviews on a lot of the stuff I was looking at, and I’d like to be part of the solution to that.
I’ve already started getting my training schedule together for 2019, and I think it’s going to be a great year. I hope you stick around and enjoy reading about it!
