In his personal life, Sean is a marketing consultant for mid-size corporations, startups and Venture Capital firms.

We wrap up the show with things that are working in the social media space right now and what the plan should be going forward, how to double down on what works for you and where to begin.

In only it's second year the Colorado 3-Gun Championship sold out and presented shooters with a mix of fast, technical stages, an open terrain stage and a creative memory-stage to compensate for bays that are limited to 200 yards. Plus my favorite stage: Hot Lava!

Forest Lathrop stops by the studio to discuss the match and we breakdown how to practice, prepare and perform in next year's match. We also discuss the shooting culture in Colorado and how one person can affect an entire state of shooters.

Have you ever wondered what you need to go shoot your first 3-Gun match? Have you ever wondered how to find a match or what to do when you get there?

Michigan shooter and match director Matt Koopikka has taught hundreds of people how to shoot 3-Gun through his local gun club so he's no stranger to answering questions and overcoming objections to getting people in the sport. 

In this episode Matt and I discuss the gear, skills, attitude, safety and fun aspects of shooting your first 3-Gun match. If you have thought about getting into the shooting sports but don't know how, this podcast will guide you through the process and get you out on the range.

The Aguila Cup makes it's debut in the United States for 2018 and it brings with it an exciting format that showcases multiple disciplines of competitive shooting in the same weekend. Of course 3-Gun is involved in this event as is rimfire and sporting clays. Mark Passamaneck makes a return to the podcast to tell us about the format of the match, the marketing team behind it, how this is more of an event that the matches that we are used to shooting and why we as 3-Gunners should attend events like this.

I spend a lot of time with my nose, ears and eyeballs deeply entrenched in the world of 3-Gun so being a guest on the AR-15 Podcast was an exciting opportunity to speak to other shooting enthusiasts that have not shot any competition before. I was surprised by a lot of the questions that they asked as they were not things that I had considered barriers or hurdles to shooting matches. It really helped adjust my perception of what type of content is important to newer shooters that may be listening to the 3-Gun Show on a regular basis and how I can help remove those barriers to entry and flatten that learning curve.

JD & Reed were great hosts and Mike Cap even jumped into the fun, bringing his knowledge of competition shooting to the show as well. Along the way we had some laughs, mostly at Reed's expense, and hopefully the boys learned something from all the talking and I'll see them at a match soon.

Jan 10, 2018

Texas shooter Daniel Jirasek is not one to hold back and this interview is no exception. Daniel breaks down what it takes to break out of the top 15 and start winning matches. Then he takes on some of the more controversial topics that have been discussed in the 3-Gun Groups on Facebook in 2017. But Daniel doesn't hold back when it comes to his passion for getting new people in the sport and details the aggressive plan that got him hooked on 3-Gun and how he uses that same plan to get newcomers excited about our sport. 

Jan 3, 2018

On the podcast this week is Forest Lathrop, a guy that I've been shooting with in Colorado for a few years now. Forest grew up in 3-Gun with some outstanding local mentors and completed his second year of traveling to shoot major matches. Club matches are where most people get started and Forest details how to transfer that knowledge to newer shooters while giving credit to the people that helped him along the way. We also discuss that ever present question of how to attract and retain new shooters while putting on a match that will challenge your most skilled competitors.

On This Podcast You'll Learn:

  • How to mentor and transfer knowledge to new shooters
  • The importance of knowing your body for match management
  • How to make a match challenging for your skilled competitors while making it fun for your hobby shooters
  • And more!

Kentucky 3-Gunner and match director of the Rock Hard Bruce Davidson is on the show to discuss the match and announce a partnership with several other matches to create the Hard as Hell Series and points race. Bruce has extensive experience in running events including the world's largest "toy airplane" event, "The Bruce," that he holds at his farm. Bruce tells us how he uses this experience to engage his shooters for the entire weekend including holding several side matches that raise funds for Mission 22.

Special Field Correspondent Bryan Ray shot a really cool match recently, the Firearms Industry Team Challenge. This match is quite the departure from what we ordinarily cover here on The 3-Gun Show and it is a follow-up to the interview I did with David Power about the Industry Choice Awards back in Episode 130. Many of the shooters, personalities and manufacturers that we know from 3-Gun were involved in this match at the Rockcastle Shooting Center and based on Bryan's Recon it is easy to see why.

Special Field Correspondent Adam Maxwell worked hard to get a 3-Gun Nation Regional in his home state of Minnesota and it came to fruition in the 2017 3GN Midwest Regional. Adam points out in this Match Recon that a 3GN match is now it's own flavor of match and tells us why.

We also get a little behind the scenes on the logistics and coordination that it takes to get a 3GN match on your range plus the coolest parts of the 3GN RO class.

This Match Recon was recorded months before several of the key players at 3GN split off into the new venture of Strategic Match Design (SMD) so it is interesting to hear the dynamic presented in Minnesota.

... This podcast is not just about how to treat your range officer, it outlines expectations of how an RO should treat the competitors as well.

On This Podcast You'll Learn:

  • Why True Professionals are professional in every aspect of their life
  • The main responsibilities of a range officer
  • What an RO can expect from competitors
  • What a competitor can expect from an RO
  • Plus! What does a range officer NOT want from a competitor?

Advice from Heath Clevenger:

What does the RO want from a Competitor:

  • Be on time to the stage brief
  • Listen to the stage brief
  • Be ready (have all of your gear and guns) shoot when you are on deck, be waiting on the RO. DO NOT make the RO wait on you. This is the equivalent of making the entire match wait on you. 30 seconds of waiting for 200 competitors is 100 minutes of delay. This is the difference in shooting when the sun is up or shooting in the dark.
  • Tell the RO the order in which you plan to shoot long range targets
  • Understand that the time to ask questions is not on the clock!
  • If the stage is complicated or you plan to shoot a stage differently than everyone else, let the RO know your plan before you start.
  • Be nice, be patient with the RO. You are not the center of his universe.
  • Retrieve your equipment after you get done shooting
  • If you disagree with a call, if the RO makes a bad call, talk to the RO politely about your view. If you cannot come to agreement with the RO, ask politely to speak with the Range Master. Stay calm.
  • Remember, you will most likely see that RO again at another match. Do you want to make a friend or a foe?

What do Competitors want from an RO

  • To fully read and explain the stage brief the same way for every squad/ shooter
  • Fair calls with any question going to the favor of the competitor
  • To not be distracting or asking questions off the wall questions when you are getting ready to shoot
  • EQUALITY! – treat me the same a Jerry or Horner
  • Do not talk down to the competitor (Niki says guys treat her like she is stupid if they don’t know her, and thinks this happens to women often)
  • Consistency in everything, from reading he brief to making calls on long range, to paper hits
  • For the RO to remain calm when the competitor disagrees with a call that they made and/ or if they ask for the RM
  • For the RO to be calm and confident
  • To be paying attention to the task at hand, not having a conversation that distracts from competitor that is shooting or ready to shoot.
  • Guaranteed the exact same target presentation

The Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) has taken the shooting sports by storm in the last couple years but questions remain as the sport matures into its adolescent years. Many shooters report being mistreated or overly scrutinized at USPSA pistol matches. With the 2017 Lucas Oil Pistol Caliber Carbine Championship, PCC-only matches are catching on. So what is the future of PCC in 3-Gun? Adam Maxwell and I tackle this question with help from the community on this episode of The 3-Gun Show.

On This Podcast You'll Learn:

  • What would ideal PCC divisions look like?
  • How do we make room for a PCC Division without a ton of concessions and should we?
  • Is the evolution of "2x4" the future of PCC in 3-Gun?
  • Should there be a special Pistol Caliber Carbine division for nostalgic/cool guns?
  • Plus! How do you blow up a PCC?
  • And more!

This podcast is one from The 3-Gun Show archives and one of the most popular episodes ever. The first time I met Jerry Miculek in person and my first time at the NRA Whittington Center in New Mexico, he introduced me to the topic of vision in the shooting sports. What seems like such a basic concept really blew my mind and changed the way I think about the game. I have revisited this topic many times recently both on and off the show and I thought it would be fun to check back in on the topic from the master.

If you've heard this one before, listen again to see if you pick up on anything new now that you have more experience in the sport.

Plus! Listen in after the interview for some behind-the-scenes banter between Adam Maxwell and I that was recorded in between podcasts in the summer of 2017.

Friend of the show, Josh Tarrant, is back on the podcast this week to discuss performance vs expectation of performance. This is one of the aspects of "the mental game" and definitely among our favorite topics on the podcast because we invest a lot of time, money and effort into 3-Gun and we'd like to see it pay off in a great match performance. Balancing the desire to do well with your actual match performance is something that the top shooters in the sport have locked down or are constantly managing as they make their way through a match. People like Josh are figuring it out along the way and applying their experience from other high-level sports, bringing in new ideas and new perspectives to the game we love to play. Find out how Josh is learning to deal with expectations on this episode of The 3-Gun Show.

On This Podcast You'll Learn:

  • How managing your mental performance determines the outcome of your match
  • Why burning a stage down won't win a major
  • The desire to do well is what drives your training
  • Process based thinking vs outcome based thinking
  • The importance of taking a break in 3-Gun
  • Plus! Josh issues a challenge to you up-and-coming shooters...
  • And more!

When we heard that friends of the show Niki and Aaron Hayes were heading off on an international competitive shooting adventure, we quickly booked them on the podcast to get a sense of what they were excited for and how they planned to be ready for the Northern Ireland Shotgun Championship.

Aaron has been on the show a few times before, notably after shooting the IPSC Shotgun World Shoot in Italy in 2015. We welcome Aaron's bride Niki in her first appearance on The 3-Gun Show! Niki is in her second year of shooting 3-Gun (and actually shooting in general!) and we discuss how she approached preparing for the World Shoot as a newer shooter. You probably won't be surprised to find that Niki found the international shooting community incredibly welcoming.

Listen in as Niki and Aaron share the highs and lows of both their trip and of their match!

On This Podcast You'll Hear:

  • How to travel internationally with guns
  • The difference between IPSC Shotgun and American 3-Gun
  • How friendly (or unfriendly) is the International Shooting Community?
  • Plus! Why you should always listen to your husband...
  • And more!

Our buddy Dillen Easley recently posed this question in one of the 3-Gun Facebook groups: "Open discussion......... what rule (s) would you like to see changed in 3-gun?" and the thread exploded into well over 1000 comments. Most of it was constructive and there were some spirited disagreements. Adam Maxwell is on the show to discuss many of the rule changes proposed by members of the 3-Gun community. Some have great merit, some we shot down and Adam was even able to change my mind on a couple topics.

Proposed Rule Changes from the Community:

  • Shoot heads up. No divisions, no restrictions! All out drag race.
  • Thirty rounds in TacOps, leave the drums for open.
  • Bigger gap between limited and tacops- 8+1 max; 30 rounders max on rifle; no extended base plates for pistol mags.
  • I’m fine with 10+1 if that’s what everyone in tac ops shoots. But by God if ol’ Johnny boy is running a 14 rounder then I am too!
  • First thing we do is get rid of the whiney PCC shooters.
  • Plus! Dave and Adam's proposed rule changes.
  • And more!

Matt Martini and I sat down at the Lucas Oil Range after the PCC Championship to chat about the match, how USPSA treats Pistol Caliber Carbine and why their should be no "High Overall" winner at matches. Matt started shooting 3-Gun after he had achieved a Master Classification in USPSA Production and brings many of the mental performance and visualization concepts that are frequently discussed by pistol shooters to 3-Gun. We discuss the importance of shooting with an aggressive club, learning to shoot and load a shotgun and what the future holds for 3-Gun and PCC.

Key Points from the Podcast:

  • What is the big separator between new and experienced 3-Gunners?
  • How to practice with consistency, the first time
  • How to stay in front of the power curve
  • Plus! The steep PCC learning curve
  • And more!

Generation III Gun is an organization focused on promoting youth in the shooting sports. Each year Gen III gives out sponsorships to Juniors that shoot major 3-Gun matches and they also give free spots to Juniors for the Generation III Gun Championship in Osage, MO. This year Gen 3 added a new feature to their match in the form of a Junior shoot off. The format is really cool, the Junior Shooters get to pick two adult competitors for a team shoot off. Each team gets to shoot the array once to seed them into a bracket and the top teams shoot it off for glory.

This episode of the podcast features live play-by-play with many previous guests and this year's winners!
