On this episode we sit down with Ben Stoeger and discuss shooting and life.  Practical Shooting is still his life. He travels, trains, competes, teaches and improves both his own skills and his training methods. Things change fast in the competitive shooting scene and he like to stay on top of the changes in order to shoot his best and teach his students to be the best.In 2005 he discovered the sport of Practical Shooting. This sport instantly became an addiction for him. He started training like it was his full time job and he got proficient quickly. He used dry-fire as his primary source of training and was able to make USPSA GM almost right away after starting competition.By 2007 h started attending USPSA Nationals in an effort to learn how to shoot better and improve his skills. This is the most challenging event in USPSA to win and it took him years more of training to do so.H began teaching other people to shoot in 2008. This started as a side gig at first but eventually it became his only occupation. In a few short years he was a traveling shooter/instructor and had published many of my ideas into a book series.

What is it like to be a world champion?  How much focus and dedication goes into performing at that level.  Could you do it?  Could you do it knowing this might be the last time you were able to go to a world championship? Most competitive shooters in action pistol or USPSA (if you live in the US) know my guest as one of the best production class (that's the somewhat stock guns) shooters.  Ben Stoeger has won 6 national championships (five of them back to back) but never took first on the world stage..until this year.  Ben achieved that goal but the win meant more to him.  Earlier this year he was diagnosed with cancer and had an operation to remove it.  Knowing that if it spread or reappeared he would never have the opportunity to get the world champion title.  Going into the World Shoot in France this year, Ben secretly kept that feeling to himself but he was under an extreme amount of pressure.  In this episode three takeaways from Ben are 1) what is it like to compete under enormous pressure?  2)  Why getting a sponsorship doesn't mean free stuff and 3) training in the environment where you'll be competing will give you an edge over other competitors. Ben has a reputation as a bad boy in USPSA but after knowing him and what he's been through he comes across as a knowledgeable instructor and champion.

Triangle Tactical Podcast - Competitive Shooting, Mostly

I have 2 range bags. One that I call my practice bag, and another that I call my match bag, although they both go with me to both. Match Bag This is an old backpack, actually the bag that I took to college with me… 14 years ago. Gun rug fits well in the laptop sleeve, easy to carry between stages, etc. Gun, mags, outer belt, inner belt, ammo, etc. Also keep my eyes/ears/extra eyes/squib stick and gun parts box in this bag. I try to keep it fairly lightweight so I’m not trying to drag a huge bag from bay to bay at a match. It’s rare that I need more than the above stuff at a match, so I leave everything else in my practice bag in my trunk. If I have something more catastrophic happen, I can always walk to my car and get what I need from the practice bag. Gun parts: All springs Extra striker assembly, not because I think I’ll need it, but because for some reason I have one. Extra fiber-optic for my front sight. Don’t buy this stuff from a gun store, or any gun type place online. Measure the diameter of the F/O rod that your front sight takes with a pair of calipers, and then order like 5’ of it from fiberopticproducts.com for like a ridiculously cheap amount of money. I think I’ve got a front sight tool, and a spare front sight. Again, not something I’d necessarily go out and buy, but it takes up no space, I’ve got it, so why not? Practice bag  This is a big, almost too big, MidwayUSA range bag. This bag has a lot of RO type stuff: Copy of Ben Stoeger’s Skills and Drills. Big book of live fire range drills and stuff that’s nice to have when you’re on the range. A couple cans of the cheapest white paint I can get my hands on. I use it for painting steel targets, and it can be handy for marking shooting areas on the ground, etc. Practice magazines - I replaced all my magazines at the beginning of this shooting season, so all my old ones are in my practice bag. The reason for this is, the range that I’m a member of has the finest, siltiest sand that really does a number on magazines, even Glock mags. Since I’m not someone who likes to spend a bunch of time cleaning guns and magazines, I use all my old ones at my practice range and let them get filthy, and then use my new mags for matches at other ranges that don’t have the same dusty sand. Mechanix Gloves, these are great for setup and tear down. They keep your hands from getting torn up by random staples on target sticks, etc. Staple gun, and I keep it loaded with the longest, heaviest duty staples that it will take. I think they’re ½” I like the long staples because they go through enough two targets easily, and still have plenty of staple to get into the target stick, so you don’t have to worry about your no-shoots falling off in the middle of practice, etc. Cheap duct tape is a recent addition to my range bag. I’ve started wrapping all of my steel target sticks in duct tape to hold them together a little more when they catch a stray bullet in practice. Speedo goggle anti-fog stuff. Works great to smear a little on your shooting glasses to make sure they don’t fog up on you at a match. It’s just a little bottle of a couple ounces, but I’ve probably had mine for 6 or 7 years and it’s still mostly full. I only use it every couple months, and just a couple drops at a time. Several sheets of dots. Ben Stoeger has a .PDF of dots that you can print out and I have a bunch of the sheets in my range bag. It’s a good drill that will humble the heck out of you if you start getting too cocky. Pasters and target tape. If you’re not pasting targets in practice, you’re totally wrong. Sometimes if I’m shooting some bill-drills or something I’ll conserve pasters and only paste holes outside of the A-zone, but otherwise mostly I paste everything, ever run. Sunblock Big ugly wide brimmed hat Shooting shoes, and socks for them. I tend to find myself at the range with flip-flops on, so having these in my range bag is good for me. 9v batteries for my timer and chronograph. I hate buying these things because they’re expensive. I change the batteries in all my smoke detectors every 6 months, then I save the old batteries and use them up in my chronograph and shot timer. I NEVER have to buy batteries specifically for them anymore. Pocket Pro 2 Shot Timer. Just get one of these, and don't get anything else. Triangle Tactical Podcast Facebook Group Here's where to find the new Triangle Tactical Facebook group. I want this to be a place where we can all share things about matches, practice, what's going well, things you need help with, etc.  I think it will allow you to interact more with other podcast listeners in a way that the regular Facebook page doesn't really allow for.

I downloaded all the audio versions onto my phone, and I've been listening to them like they were podcasts. 2017 Shooting Goals I want to hear your 2017 shooting goals. Go to triangletactical.net/goals to send in a voicemail telling me what your goals are, and how you'll achieve them.  The News I'm curious how you feel about this: Texas will have a bill introduced the next time the legislature gets together in 2017 that will remove all the fees for concealed carry permits. Obviously issuing permits isn't free, and the government is fully funded by tax payers, so this would really just subsidize the cost to all the tax payers in the state.  On one hand, cool, no fees. On the other, it's like making your neighbors pay for it, which I dislike.  Back to the first hand, we shouldn't have to pay to exercise a right. But on the second hand, then why not just get rid of the permit?

You're Not Good Enough To Shoot Your First Match

Triangle Tactical Podcast - Competitive Shooting, Mostly

Most common thing I heard from people who are somewhat interested in the idea of competitive shooting is that they aren't good enough. - If you can draw the gun, and walk around without pointing it at yourself or anyone else, and can do basic malfunction clearance, you have the skills needed to get started. That's not to say that you're "good enough" though. When you start, you're going to suck at it. It's that way with ANYTHING you do in life, so accept it. - When I started cycling way back when, I was awful. When I picked it up again last fall, I was awful again. I'm still not great, but the more time I spend on the bike the more I'm learning and honing my skills. - It was the same when I really took up shooting as a hobby. When I started I didn't have a clue what my sights looked like when the shot broke, and if I shot 10 rounds, and 5 of them were in the center of the target, and 5 were low and left, I couldn't tell you what was different on those shots. Now? I'll still pull a shot low/left now and then, but I know the very instant that the gun goes off that something went wrong. Because I've put in the time and practice to learn these things. - There's a Swedish Psychologist named K Anders Ericcson who's literally wrote the book on this stuff. I haven't read the book yet (literally ordered it while working on these shownotes) but I've listened to him interviewed on the Freakonomics podcast a while back, as well as heard him referenced in many different audiobooks about mastery and things like that, and basically, the way I understand what I've heard about his research is that some people are born with somewhat of an advantage in their given field, but for the most part, if you want to master something, you've got to put in the work. Not just "work" but deliberate practice. So, if you know you're going to suck at competitive shooting when you start, why should you start? I've found it to be incredibly rewarding for several reasons: 1. Not to sound cocky, but I've become one of the better shooters out there. If you put me and 10 random gun owners on the range, and have us shoot for accuracy with a handgun, I'll finish near the top, because I've practiced a LOT more than the average person. 2. I've built a level of confidence in myself, my gear, and my abilities that I didn't have before I became a competitor. Certainly before I was a competitor I would pretend I had confidence when talking to my buddies about shooting, but now that I shoot a lot, practice a lot, and know what I'm capable of (with the numbers to prove it) I'm very confident should I ever need to use my gun for self defense. 3. I've got to meet some of the best in the world at my craft. If I were a runner, I probably wouldn't meet Usain Bolt at a random 5K in North Carolina. If I were a competitive cyclist, the chances of rolling up to the line with Chris Froome just wouldn't happen. BUT, there's something about competitive shooting that's different. When we invited Chris Tilley to come over to Ben's house, and record a podcast around his kitchen table, he was happy to do it. When you roll up to the starting position and Todd Jarrett has the timer, chances are he's going to drop some knowledge on you at some point if he thinks you need it. When we had Ben Stoeger on the podcast, he invited us into his hotel room to record it. These are world class shooters, all of them, and they're available and approachable. When we interviewed Tilley one of the things he said was that he loves teaching brand new shooters how to shoot. Not the A class guys who should practice more, and make excuses for not doing it, but the people who have never shot before. I think that's freaking cool. All this to day: if you've EVER wanted to try competitive shooting, do it. If you've ever wanted to gain more confidence in your shooting, try competition. If you've ever heard that competitive shooting will get you killed on the streets, come try it, and if you're just looking for something to waste your Saturday's on, we'll see you on the range. Gear that Doesn't Suck: If you're looking to become a better shooter, you need a shot timer. If you're shooting drills on the range and you're not timing them, I think you're wasting ammo. Just get a Pocket Pro 2 timer, and be done with it. The News Mike Vanderboegh passed away this week. He was a fervent 2A supporter, and he did a lot of good work. I'll miss him. There were reports of an Active Shooter at Crabtree Valley Mall here in Raleigh in Saturday. At this point on Sunday there are a lot of conflicting reports from witnesses, some saying they heard a shot, some saying they heard 4 shots, others saying they heard 12-14 shots. The police still say they don't have any evidence of any shooting taking place. While it was all going down, apparently some dude approached the mall dressed in camo, carrying a rifle, and said that he was there to help the police. Contact There's a new way to contact the podcast. If you want to send in a voicemail through your phone, just dial 7817-BULLET and you'll be connected to the Triangle Tactical voicemail line. Boom.

The difference between a really good match, and an average match isn't a lot of super crazy, hard to do things. It's simple really, and in this episode we talk about a few of the things that set some matches apart from others. Matches should have clearly labelled safe areas. It doesn't matter if the game happening at the range requires it or not, take the time and setup a clearly labelled safe area. All you need is a table facing a berm somewhere, and something labeling it as the designated safe area. A lot of ranges in our area just have people holster up at their car, and that's just not preferable. Clearly written stage descriptions. Often, Range Officers will walk through all of the stages before the match with the Match Director and be told how the stages are to be shot. Then, maybe 3 or 4 hours later, they finally arrive at a stage and are expected to remember exactly how the stage was supposed to be shot. Was it a loaded table start or unloaded? I know I've cried foul a couple times when I've noticed the squad behind me shooting the stage differently than I did. Take a minute, and write out the stage descriptions for your match, it's not hard to do. The 180* boundary should be clear. This is more of a USPSA specific thing, as IDPA allows for the use of muzzle safe points (which I really like, good job IDPA). Some bays at different ranges don't have a backstop that's parallel to the 180*. In this case, doing something simple like setting up the rearmost fault line parallel to the 180* gives a reference point for shooters and Range Officers. Buddy System for New Shooters: Back when we had Ben Stoeger on the podcast he mentioned that ranges near him have a buddy system for new shooters, where newbies are assigned to an experienced shooter to help them and answer their questions during the match. I think it's a great idea, and I'm surprised the ranges around here don't do this. Have a clear procedure for what to do with brass. It's a little things, but I've given a lot of unimpressed glares to people when they start picking up "my" brass. I don't really care how you do it, but I think the best way is to tell everyone to leave the brass on the ground all day, and after the match, let them pick up brass from the bay they finish on. It's simple, and leave the brass for the people who stick around and help tear down, etc. Use Practiscore. For those who don't know, Practiscore is a match administration software that allows shooters to sign up for, and squad for an upcoming match ahead of time. It's fantastic for many reasons, I like it because it keeps the match from having too many people show up. Once the specified amount of shooters have showed up, the match is full and more people aren't able to sign up. It's also great because it eliminates having someone sit in a stats shack all day entering data, and it spits out scores really quickly and distributes them via email to the shooters. The News The Holly Springs, NC police department is setting up a couple parking spaces at their new police department for online commerce (craigslist sales, basically) but they're specifically not allowing people to sell firearms there. I think they're being a little weird about banning the sales but whatever. Strict scrutiny was applied to the Maryland assault weapons ban by judges in the 4th circuit this week. They overturned the AWB and the hi-capacity magazine ban. Awesome. Here's more from Andrew Branca over at Legal Insurrection. A VA man who was open carrying was robbed of his gun last week. He's lucky that the bad guys only took his gun and not his life. If you're going to open carry, get a retention holster. I like the Safariland ALS, it's the best thing going.

In the past couple of weeks here in NC, we’ve seen several bills flow into the state legislature that would make some positive changes to our concealed carry (and other gun laws). The biggest of which is HB562. Among other things, HB562 would allow a little more leeway for people bringing guns onto school grounds in their vehicles, add an exception to an exception to allow concealed carry at the state fair (which in our opinion, adds to the “Quagmire of Stupidity” that we talked about back in Episode 103), adds a vehicle storage law that basically says that employers cannot disallow people from having a gun in their locked car, and would standardize signage requirements no guns signage. The bill does a lot more than what I mentioned here, but these are the parts we cover in this episode. We also have a look at SB708, a bill that makes for an extra special concealed carry permit in the state. I’m all for expanding carry privileges, but I don’t think this bill is really the way to do it. I outline some of my problems with it here and here. The News: Kansas becomes the 6th state allowing Constitutional Carry. As mentioned in the episode, there are some fantastic quotes from the Governor in this article.   Taurus recalls the Curve pistol. Unfortunately for Taurus, word of the recall hit social media before their press release about it, and people were jumping all over the pistol before they found out it’s only being recalled because a batch of them left the factory without having the caliber engraved into the barrel. I had the chance to shoot a Curve a few weeks ago, and it wasn’t as awful as some people make it sound, so there’s that.
