Fault Lines, Reloads, and a Night Match

Listen to the Podcast On Saturday I shot a Day/Night IDPA match at H2O Fowl Farms. We shot all 6 stages once during the daylight, and then when the sun went down we shot the match again with flashlights. If you’ve never shot with a flashlight before, it can be a challenge that you’re not expecting. Holding the flashlight while shooting is a challenge, but then reloading your gun with a flashlight in your weak …

Be Prepared

Listen to the Podcast Winterpocalypse 2017 rolled through Raleigh, NC this weekend and we got a ridiculous .5″ of snow that brought the city to it’s knees once again. Once again, I’m just shocked at how folks knew the storm was coming, and were just completely unprepared. After the snow and ice came, most of the roads were slippery and folks down here aren’t skilled in driving with anything more than a little water on …

Your 2017 Shooting Goals

Listen to the Podcast This is the last podcast episode of 2016, and if you’ve been listening for the past couple weeks I’ve been begging for voicemails telling me your 2017 shooting goals. Well, y’all sent in a bunch of them, so here they are. Anyways, my 2016 goal was to have more fun, and in all honesty, I didn’t meet that goal.

I like the newest IDPA proposed rules, a lot, mostly.

Listen to the podcast: So a bunch of text about the newest IDPA rules appeared in my inbox, and on a few different forums and discussion boards a couple days ago. The sources I got the text from are credible, in my opinion. The text talks about what the new IDPA rulebook will be for 2017 now that the comment period has passed. This will be our rulebook for the next 5 years. No clarifications …

Don’t Read The Comments

Listen to the Podcast In the modern times we’re in, when we want to learn about something new we go to web forums, subreddits, and Facebook groups that are based around the topic we’re interested in.

3 Lessons from Competitive Shooting

Listen to the Podcast Just a few things I’ve learned from competitive shooting over the years: If you want to get better, stop chasing the newest, latest, greatest. Find some gear that’s good enough, and stick with it. If you can afford the best gear, awesome, if you can’t, that’s fine too. Stop trying to do everything yourself. I’m super cheap, so in the beginning I tried to make all my own gear. I spent …

Competitive Shooting is Making Me Better at Just About Everything

Way back when I used to ride mountain bikes in junior high school I just pushed my mountain bike down the trail, and never really learned how to do things better.

I’d just go to the range and shoot. When …

Let’s Have Some Fun

What makes competitive shooting matches fun? To me, it’s shooting challenges. Tight targets? Yes please No shoots? Sure Make me do something with my weak hand while shooting? Absolutely Awkward footing, strange positions, tight spaces? Sign me up Make me run 100y dragging a dummy before shooting? Meh. Basically, I like shooting challenges, because I’m there as a competitive shooter. I’m not a sprinter, so making me run 50y before shooting when it doesn’t add …
