Mental Game – 136

This week we talk a bunch about mental game for competitive shooting after getting a great email on the topic from a listener.


GRNC is asking for anyone available on Tuesday, June 2nd at 8:30am to come to the NC Legislative Building in downtown Raleigh. Details here.

The News

171 concealed carry permits were revoked in Ohio after it was found out that the instructor wasn’t teaching the classes, but instead just signing off on the certificates. No bueno.

Charlotte, NC police are noticing a trend of vehicles with gun related stickers getting broken into. Something to think about.

Tip of the Week

Don’t let strange stage props get in your head. Last week we watched some people melt down while shooting a clamshell target at the Shoot2Live IDPA match, and it’s something we’ve both seen in the past with things like cars, odd start positions, and of course, the dreaded Texas Star.

  1. Boys-

    Thanks for talking about the mental game. I do agree that you need to do both physical and mental training, but there really is no viable argument that physical plus mental is not much better. It has been scientifically proven that going through the mental motions creates and ingrains the same neural signals as performing the actual physical practice. I agree that you have to have the fundamentals down and do some physical work, but time spent on the mental side will throw your progress into high gear.
