Here I Am In Reno...

Went to the banquets for the 1 Inch To 100 Yard conference and had a great time...been hanging out with the guys from the firearms training cadre at Las Vegas Metro...really interesting guys! Will start filming for SHOOTING GALLERY tomorrow...there are some pretty important people here that I'd like SG viewers to meet...info that I think needs to be out there.

In the Expo I stumbled into Robert Sampson, prez of Flip-N-Target, regular advertisers on DRTV. Inexpensive, simple folding targets stands...I love elegant solutions to problems we all have, and targets are a big issue. I love steel, but there are some local shooting places where I have to park and walk a long way in. These stands are perfect for that location, and I'm getting a couple for myself. I was thinking of paper targets because I need to do some accuracy-focused shooting and I'd always rather do that on paper than steel.

I had a long talk with my friend and mentor Walt Rauch today, and be darned if he didn't talk some sense into me regarding trick (or tricked, as the case may be) guns. He noted that I've always been your basic gunsmith 'ho, but that I needed to dump the guns that didn't work, suck it up and get good quality ones that do. Pick a couple of gunsmiths I unconditionally trust (Hi, Mr. Laughridge!) and stick with them. Simple advice, but it took Walt to get it through my thick head.

BTW, wanted to make a short comment on my previous post and the comments...I may have shot wretchedly, but I had a wonderful time! Back in my impetuous youth, I did put some magazines over berms while sulking over a bad performance, but I hope those days are behind me. I love competition and I love a well-designed, well-run match, and the Wild Bunch Wolrd Championships were certainly both (unfortunately, the match designs have not been posted...I'll push them on getting those stages up). We compete because we love the competition...the nature of competition is that sometimes you lose. Part of being a competitor means taking the losses with the wins. Tomorrow's podcast is all about what I learned from the match, and I CAN'T WAIT to get out not he range and start focusing my training for the next match.

BTW BTW, check out the opening music on tomorrow's podcast...nothing like the sound of a single action!

Always glad to read what Walt Rauch has to say about a topic. How is he doing, and why can't you get him on TV?

Hey Michael, thanks for the Wild Bunch podcast. It's been saved for review before every match. I had thought you'd be talking about tactics and gun preparation; instead you enlightened us about the even more important mental preparation.

Thanx again.
