The HandgunWorld Podcast is produced by me, Bob Mayne, I’m an avid competitive handgun shooter, private citizen, modern survivalist and believer in the individual right of the 2nd amendment.  I’ve taken numerous firearms training courses by Suarez International and Massad Ayoob Group. My background is that of an every day guy and I am an eternal student of the handgun. This podcast is practical and useful in nature. I try to stay away from political discussions and arguments about caliber or gun platforms. Rather, I bring you excellent interviews and commentary about concealed carry, competition shooting and more. I’ve been carrying a gun about 7 years and have been competiting about that long as well.

This website and podcast has been set up to bring you informative information whether you are new to shooting/self defense or have been shooting all of your life.

There’s something for everyone.  Enjoy and please comment.

Bob: I just began listening to your podcast. Great stuff. I'm a retired NYPD Lt., licensed PI, and published author (crime novels, true crime, etc.---write what you know). I also teach part-time in a local university. Just wanted to let you know that I took Jack Rumbaugh's Red Dot Pistol course in Winchester , VA two weeks ago. Very well done intensive training. Jack's a great teacher; tough to hold someone's attention for two days, but he pulled it off with humor and professionalism. I was an early adoptor of the RMR. One of the smartest purchaes I've made. Keep up the great work. I'll be listening.

Bob, I wanted to drop you a line and say I love the show. I have been in law enforcement for the last fifteen years and for someone who has not been, you do have a great knowledge base about firearms. I now work for an agency in which we carry a sig 229 .357 concealed on a daily basis. Many of us have sworn by comp-tec, high noon, and cross breed holsters. Very good choice! I was listening to the show the other day while working and you commented on changing how you release the slide when you run dry. We practice this on a regular basis and thought I may offer a suggestion. Speed is our main advantage in my line of work. We train to use the momentum of inserting the magazine into the well to assist with activating the slide release. This also ensures you full seat the mag and will not have a failure to feed. As soon as your finger hits the mag release, move it to your slide release. As you send the new mag home, all you have to do is hand on to the slide release and it will work. Using this method we can engage five targets, with two rounds each, and a reload in five seconds. It takes practice but it will increase your speed. Reloads is one of the easiest areas to increase/decrease your time. The last thing I will leave you with is simple drill to assist with losing your fine motor skills. Take you gun apart and lay it on the table, including your mag. Mix the pile up so that the pieces are scattered. Do a couple of minutes of continuous exercise to increase your heart rate, ie push ups, sit ups, running in place. After you get your rate up, assemble the gun and the mag. If you have the availability, as soon as you assemble your gun and mag, attempt to shoot a rack of plates at ten yards. It is very difficult at first, but this will help you to control your breathing, heart rate, and trigger press while under stress. Again love the show and I look forward to new episodes. If you ever have any questions, feel free to contact me. Airborne Sheepdog My rig is actually true spec truss system or i carry a DeSantis IWB holster and keep my other gear on my GOOD kydex belt
