Are You Ready To Compete?

Competition shooting is equal parts preparation and performance, no matter what. As much as you want to go into an event with the right training and equipment, a lot comes down to that day. There are a lot of people in the world of marksmanship who use that observation to discount the need for great equipment, but what they miss is that the right support can ease your mind and allow you to enter a competition in a relaxed and ready state, contributing to the quality of your shooting on the day in question. It’s also vital to remember that the two parts are roughly equal, you can’t expect to walk in with equipment you haven’t trained on or equipment that doesn’t have the precision called for in the event and do just as well as someone who does, even if your performance is stellar on that day.

Choosing Your Gear for Competition Shooting

There are a lot of options when you start looking at competition Glock sights, enough to make an initial choice daunting if you’re new to tournament shooting. Fiber optic sights are pretty much state of the art today, and it’s easy to find a wide enough selection to feel comfortable picking one that appeals to you instead of having a choice dictated by necessity. That isn’t the only sight option, though, and when it comes to your aim, you’ll do better using a sight option that you are comfortable with. Whether that means glow sights with a night sight function, fiber optics, or reflex sight with a heads-up guide, you need to be able to settle into the sight’s feedback so you can just react to it without having to stop and process.

Check Your Tournament Rules

Shooters who want to get to the top of the sport need to get familiar with a wide variety of firearms and configurations for them. Tournaments do not all have the same restrictions on magazine size, sight magnification, or even appropriate ammunition size. It takes attention to the individual event’s rules and preparation with the right gear to succeed.…

How to Receive Compensation for a Workplace Injury

Getting injured at work can be a devastating financial hit. Not only is a person unable to continue working, but they can also accumulate massive amounts of medical bills and debt depending on the type of injury. Paying these bills while out of work can be difficult, which is why some think about suing employer for injury. People sometimes misunderstand the process of suing an employer, though, assuming they would take their boss to court. In reality, these cases are usually settled through worker’s compensation insurance.

Worker’s Compensation

Worker’s compensation is a type of insurance employers have to ensure their employees are covered in the event of injury. This insurance pays for worker’s medical bills and rehabilitation expenses. In some cases it can even cover a portion of the employee’s lost wages while unable to work. This same policy also protects the employer, though, by typically covering their legal costs if the employee decides to sue for things outside of the policy’s coverage.

Most large companies will have a worker’s compensation policy in place for its employees. There are specific requirements depending on the type of business and where it is located that vary by state. Smaller businesses, such as a sole proprietorship or freelance enterprise, are not required to have a worker’s compensation package in place.

How to File a Claim

First, a person needs to visit the company’s approved health care provider to have their injury or illness assessed. This professional will provide a report to include with the employee’s claim for compensation. A person’s employer will give them the necessary forms to fill out and then these should be filed as a claim with the company’s insurance provider. Once the claim has been processed, the employee can receive their reimbursement or lost wages and return to work when cleared by a doctor.…
