Jason Tielke has been around the 3-Gun scene since the days where you could shoot every 3-Gun match in the country and still have time for other hobbies. Quite a lot has changed in the decade he has been traveling the country for multigun matches but one thing has remained constant- his commitment to his practice.

Jason and I have shot together quite a bit and I’ve always found his approach of practicing hard and using adequate gear until it is all used up to be quite refreshing. We got to talking at breakfast after the 2017 Generation 3 Gun and he told me a really cool story about his first Major IDPA match that he also tells in the show here.

If you’re into making the most out of what you have and still progressing in the sport, you’re going to love this interview with Jason Tielke.

Match Flavor Execution- Learn the marks, hit the marks, make the shot...quickly
Terrain Rugged Bays- Everything is in bays, but the are not necessarily flat and have lots of ankle-roller rocks.
Skillz Utilized Cyclic-rate match- fast shooting, a USPSA match with 3 guns. Lots of pistol distance rifle shots- but a couple tricky ones. No shotgun heavy stages and no shotgun over 10 yards. Adequate use of slugs
Farthest Shot and/or # of long range targets 340 yards, approximately 7
Logistics Very efficient. Smooth registration. Regular scoring updates (almost real time). Smoothest prize table ever.
Venue Las Vegas- easiest access there is and best amenaties
Pre-Communication Yes, timely emails and the most comprehsive website to date.
Staff On the whole, not customer serivce or match flow oriented. Quick on the DQ trigger, gotcha mentality, disorganized/inefficient reset, and lacking staff to RO rapore.
Fun factor I really liked the cyclic rate shooting. The stages were fast and fun. Easy enough not to be stressful, but challenging enough to keep you honest. Would like to see more challenging shotgun shots on par with the challenges for pistol and rifle.
Funny things that happen at the match. Keith Garcia's liason activities

Rocky Mountain 3-Gun is one of those storied matches that has been around for a long time. Special Field Correspondent Nick Ingmire calls it "a rifleman's match" and in this episode of The 3-Gun Show's Match Recon you'll find out why. Combine challenging and sometimes tricky multigun stages with the gorgeous backdrop that is the NRA Whittington Center and you have the recipe for an epic match. 

As you'll hear in the podcast I intended to make the 2018 match but wasn't able to get there. This turned out to be a tragedy because the 2018 was the last match for RM3G. So consider this episode a time-capsule of a great match that had an amazing run of 16 years.

July was a fantastic month for The 3-Gun Show and two of the highlights were attending the 2018 Triggrcon and getting the opportunity to meet and interview Adam Kraut. Adam first came on my radar when he ran for the NRA Board of Directors and after researching him to see if he deserved my vote I found that Adam is not only an attorney focusing on firearms but he is also a prolific content creator, heading up The Legal Brief on the popular YouTube channel The Gun Collective. After viewing several of his episodes I was hooked and was pleased to learn we share many of the same views on firearms topics.

As you'll hear in this interview Adam has an incredible skill for translating complex legal topics into language that the layperson can understand and does it in an entertaining and humorous manner. Since we recorded this interview Adam has decided to run for another bid at the NRA Board of Directors and I strongly encourage that you check out his website to learn more about him and his platform. If his style and views appeal to you, visit www.adamkraut.com to sign and mail (yes mail) a petition to nominate Adam for the 2019 NRA Board of Directors.

Craig Outzen returns for a fun podcast where we take on some of the most controversial topics that have been discussed in the 3-Gun Facebook Groups recently including the SERPA holster, half-day vs full-day match schedule, Pro Shooters as a myth and should match directors shoot their own match?

This show has sparked quite the spirited discussion on YouTube and Facebook so let us know what you think whether it’s on the blog at here or whichever social platform you prefer.

The Rockcastle 3-Gun Pro/Am is the biggest match in our sport when measured by attendance. With two matches going on at the same time, a professional and an amateur, over 500 shooters descend on the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Kentucky each year. 

This year's match featured many of the scenarios that you've come to expect from shooting at Rockcastle such as long range targets, shooting on a golf course, the bathhouse and of course some jungle runs.

The Pro/Am has a reputation of being a party with a match attached to it. Did it live up to that expectation? Was the match worth shooting? Find out by listening in.

Plus! Adam and I have a long discussion on what is a "pro" in 3-Gun after recognizing some controversy based around heavily sponsored and experienced shooters that were shooting the amateur match.

In this week’s podcast I get to chat with Eric Eckhardt. Eric has spent years in his professional life, breaking down technique and finding efficiency in movement. We talk about the benefits and rewards of a long term grind toward achievement, how he was able to set aside his relationship with his fiancé Heather Miller to train her for the IPSC shotgun world shoot and then we dig into some hardcore nerd topics on physical training, mental training and of course firearms training.

Quote from a listener who watched the interview live:

"Think your long range game is spot on? Listen to this and you'll likely change your mind."

Ryan Reed has been in the game for nearly a decade now and he’s seen a lot of changes to matches, his game and his practice. We also discuss the old days, what the matches were like and what got him hooked in the first place.

I really enjoyed this chat with Ryan because several people come into the game, burn really hot and burn out fast. Ryan has a very well thought out method for choosing the matches he shoots that minimize time away from the family and maximize fun.
