JUNK SCIENCE: Turn And Draw

The turn and draw is a pretty standard start position for competitive shooting matches.

The conventional wisdom about the turn and draw is that you should always turn towards the gun, because the gun then has less movement to make to …

Shoot Everything

If you’re new to the shooting sports, don’t settle on whatever shooting sport you decide to shoot first is. Go shoot a bunch of different disciplines. The shooting sports are like high school cliques. If you go to IDPA, you’ll hear people talk junk about those USPSA gamers. If you shoot USPSA, someone will talk junk about the tacti-fools at IDPA. If you shoot 3-gun, you’ll hear someone talk junk about the guys that only …

Things That Suck

There are some things in the shooting sports that just suck. Today, I talk about those things. What sucks for you? Let me know in the comments below this post! Anyways, here’s my list: Sub-machine gun matches It sounds so awesome, but at the one I observed, people were just spraying and praying, and as someone who embraces the DVC (Speed/Power/Accuracy) thing, it just didn’t do anything for me.

Shooting Sponsorships and You

I remember showing up to my first USPSA match and being kind of intimidated by all of the folks that were there with their fancy shooting shirts, covered in sponsor logos. Patrick in Detroit sent in a question for the Q&A podcast way back in about July of 2016. At the time I promised him that I’d do an episode about his question, and I set out looking for someone to interview who knows more …

Treating a Match Like an Athletic Event

I ran up to Hayes Custom Guns to return a PCC I had borrowed from Steve. Got to go out for a little practice session with Steve, Ben Hayes and Josh Kenny …

Things That Make You Go “Ugghhh” At a Match

Listen to the Podcast: I’ve been asking for your voicemails for this episode of the podcast asking “what makes you go “ugghhh” at a match”. Now, the goal of this episode isn’t to bash the shooting sports, or bash other competitors or anything like that. My goal with this was to have some lighthearted entertainment, and hopefully get some things that other might be able to use to improve themselves, or improve their match. …and …

2014 MGM Ironman Videos

Rather than working on some great blog content, or cleaning guns, or reloading today, I’ve been sitting in front of my computer monitor watching YouTube videos of the 2014 MGM Ironman 3-Gun match that took place earlier this month. The stages are huge, and some of them involve things like a zip line, driving a golf cart, running through an underground bunker, and more steel targets than you can shake a 40 round PMAG at. …
