This past weekend I shot a competition match and deliberately shot it defensively, rather than playing the game. You can do this, or play the game for the best score and omit some critical defensive shooting skills. However, learning to shoot fast and accurately, is vital in a self defense situation and you’ll get that in competition shooting.

I recently went to a carbine rifle competition match, or so I thought…
This week I got a couple of real good voice mails and then talk about a recent IDPA match I shot. Also included this week, is a little bit about the balance between skill and equipment

This episode is about competition shooting, IDPA Nationals, shooting instructors and more. Jon Hodoway is my guest.
This episode starts with discussion about the NSA surveillance and how it can lead to gun registration. Then, I discuss how everone is influenced by teachers in some way. Not just school teachers but mentors as well. I’ve learned a lot from shooting instructors and life coaches. So I put the two together and discuss how they have helped me.
What are your plans for 2013? This episode is about my plans for 2013. I plan to be a student, a host and an instructor all in the same year. Jon Hodoway also joined me to let us know he will also be a student, a host and an instructor also. Some of the topics include, IDPA, rifle training, rules of engagement and combative handgun training. We discuss our plans and also WHY we are making them. So you’ll get an understanding of the reasoning for our decisions. You will get some good information on how to prepare for 2013.
This starts with a review of the Taurus 709 slim 9mm pistol, submitted by a listener named Todd. Then I discuss several voice mails regarding a SIG pistol, Walther PPK pistol, concealed carry in New Jersey, accidental discharges, getting started in IDPA and more. Thanks for listening.
Jon Hodoway joins me on this episode to discuss mindset of concealed carry. He also shares a recent experience he had where mindset paid off. He was carrying but it had a good ending. We also got into good discussion on how to select a firearms trainer. Jon is a firearms trainer for the Pro Arms team and usually has some very valuable insights. This show is no exception. He’s a traveller like me and travels with his handguns. He shares a story about what happened to him on the road. Also, Un-named Trucker submitted a review of the Galco King Tuk holster.

This week I address the long backlog of listener feedback and questions. Some of the topics are the 1,000 round trigger job, IDPA, gun ownership and mental health issues, Glock triggers, magazine capacity, training and even a few disagreements with some of the points made on a few of my recent shows. I think that’s a good thing because there are a lot of ways to defend yourself with a handgun and differences of opinion are healthy. This was recorded about a week in advance so if you’ve sent me a questions or comment within the last week, I will get to it on next week’s show. Thanks for your comments!

This episode starts with a review of the Taurus PT 24/7 DS, 9mm that a listener let me borrow for T&E. Overall, I give this gun high marks. There were some features I didn’t like, but I have to say that this is a very reasonably priced gun that gives you a lot of features and it was very reliable. But I give you my usual unbiased review after shooting over 100 rounds through it. The second half of the show is dedicated to listener emails and questions. I also pick on IDPA a little bit even though I love the sport. This is the last week to take advantage of the drawing for a free admission to the CRG Suarez International Class in Dallas this month. Just invest in my Shooters Club Podcast and I’ll email you your ticket number this weekend. Thanks for listening, Bob Mayne, HandgunWorld Show
Al Vennemeyer, owner of Stealth Defense Strut Holsters, Inc., joins me as my guest. We discuss his new holster design and why he feels it solves some problems that concealed carry sometimes presents. He sent me one for T&E, so I will carry it for a few weeks and let you know what I think. Also, I shot an IDPA match at Cross Timbers IDPA recently and shot quite well, but made a critical error. It didn’t cost me much but it could have. So the first segment I recap that particular stage for you. I’ve also included some responses to listeners questions and emails in segment 3.
