If you want to know about guns, shooting, ammunition, gear, concealed carry, home defense, and what’s going on in the industry, you’ve come to the right place.

The guy behind the curtains is me, Tom McHale. I’m the Executive Editor of American Handgunner Magazine and the author of the Practical Guides series of how-to shooting books. I’ve been an avid shooter, reloading, and student of things self-defense, concealed carry, reloading, and long-range shooting for the past two decades, give or take.

Over the past 20 years or so, I’ve written seven books and a couple thousand articles for various shooting related magazines and websites. You’ll find my work at Shooting Illustrated, Concealed Carry Magazine, Tactical Retailer Magazine, Beretta USA, Guns Magazine, the USCCA Blog, OutdoorHub, GunsAmerica, American Handgunner MagazineAmmoLand, The National Shooting Sports FoundationGrand View Outdoors, Range 365, The Airgun Wire, The Armory Life, and Shooting Sports Retailer Magazine.

In between articles and book projects, you’ll find me working on shooting industry corporate communications and content and serving as an expert witness on topics including ballistics, concealed carry, and general gun and ammunition topics.
