PREVIEW: Match Video Diagnosis of the 2017 Carolina Classic USPSA Match

If you’re not familiar with Match Video Diagnosis videos, they are where I narrate my shooting videos, and talk about all of the things that I did well, and the things that I didn’t do so well… Because it’s video, I can’t really skip the things that I didn’t do well, so you get it all. I think it’s a cool way to learn more about shooting, and will give you a lot of things …

Gear Changes: One of the biggest changes I made before this match was buying new magazine pouches.

Major Match Prep VLOG #2 – BOSS Modification

This post was originally posted on Patreon. If you want access to the Triangle Tactical NewsBlast Podcast, as well as bonus content like this, consider becoming a patron. Become a Patron! The Issue: I’ve mentioned here on the blog and on various podcast episodes over the years that I’ve got long arms and legs, and a normal/short-ish torso, so when I don’t have a dropped/offset holster I wind up having to angle my shoulders and …

Hwansik Kim Talks USPSA Movement

Moving quickly around a USPSA stage, and keeping your muzzle pointed safely down range isn’t always the most intuitive thing to do when you’re trying to go fast. I thought this video from Walther Arms and Hwansik Kim was really good at illustrating some of the different techniques you can use to move quickly, while keeping your gun safely down range.

[AUDIO] What’s a Good Budget Belt Rig for a New Competitive Shooter?

Last night in the Facebook Live Q&A Show, Gabe asked a question that I didn’t have time to answer then, so I’m answering it now: Gabe asked: “What budget friendly rigs do you suggest for a person new to the sport? Because I’ve been looking around and all I’ve seen are $250-$300 for the complete rig.” So, if you’re looking to shoot in Production division in USPSA (which is what I shoot) having a decent …

The “Peacock” Target Array is Stupid.

This picture took the Gunternet by storm last week, and tons and tons of people have been asking questions about it, praising it, or, like me, think it’s stupid. In the picture above, the targets appear to be USPSA targets, so let’s assume that this array was used at a USPSA match. In order for it to be legal, it would have to be a speed shoot, with a mandatory reload per rule 1.2.2.3 in …

Q&A Bonus: Cardboard or Paper Targets for Practice?

This was asked in the live chat for the last Triangle Tactical Q&A podcast, and I didn’t have time to get to it in the live show. Anyways, I think it’s definitely worth it to get the cardboard targets. When I priced them out, they were ever so slightly more expensive than paper targets, however, I get several uses out of my cardvoard USPSA targets that I don’t suspect I’d be able to get out …

On-Ramp to the Shooting Sports: Daisy National BB Gun Championship

I mentioned this on last weeks episode of the Patreon News Blast podcast, and I wanted to address it to the rest of the audience that isn’t on Patreon. There’s been a ton of talk recently about on-ramps to the shooting sports, and how they are few and far between, ineffective, etc. Personally, I think a lot of what we’re dealing with isn’t that there aren’t on-ramps to the shooting sports, it’s just that the …

Get A Load Of This Garbage…

The IPSC Rifle World Shoot is happening right now in Russia. Team USA has sent a bunch of accomplished rifle shooters to compete, and it seems like most everyone made it there without issue. That is, except for Kuan Watson. It’s sad to me that he was flying around the world, to compete¬†literally on the world stage, and wasn’t able to bring his rifle that he’s used to competing with. I don’t know the total …

Tomorrow on the Q&A Show: Live Match Video Diagnosis

One of the more common questions I hear from folks just starting out in competitive shooting is that they don’t know what to look for in their match video.  Tomorrow on the Facebook Live Q&A podcast I’m going to be doing a live match video diagnosis based on my match video from Sunday’s USPSA match. We’ll go through it stage by stage, talk about the things that went well and the things that… didn’t. Don’t …
