Have you ever thought that Athletes are just some people who are gifted with special talent or abilities at birth? Week after week, season after season, we revel in injury time winners, full-court buzzer-beaters, and split-second finishes by these athletes. But, do we truly know the athletes making such spectacles possible for us? To understand what it takes & means to be an athlete, I, Niraj Mulani, speak to them every week as we get candid about their personal stories, memorable achievemen ...

I had a few questions concerning Hornady bullets and their ballistics. Seth gave me an education on the doppler radar and how they use it that I was not expecting. It's amazing what they can learn. This is a great interview but just the beginning. We will have Seth on again in the not-so-distant future. www.casualshooterpodcast.com…
 
Thanks to Nils Jonasson and Frank Xu for taking a few minutes to sit with me and discuss the new Canik Rival and their 2022 shooting seasons. Unfortunately, there was no ceiling to this space. There was a lot of "crowd noise" from SHOT Show attendees. I did what I could to lessen it. www.casualshooterpodcast.com…
 
This Week on The Casual Hour… In this news-heavy episode, The Casual Crew reacts to the bombshell story of Microsoft buying Activision/Blizzard.

This Week on The Casual Hour… They said it couldn’t be done. A Casual Hour episode that actually goes for just an hour. But we did it. And all it took was Chase having no games to talk about and a slow news week. But hey, Bobby and Johnny got to talk about their PCs, so at least two people were happy. // T W I T C H --------------------------------…

This week's guest is Chris Gelnett. He is an Area 8 USPSA shooter that won the VA State match. It was a bitter sweet experience because the VA State match was about 2.5 weeks before Open Nationals and he got a match bump to GM.

This was our first live broadcast. The three of us talked Carry Optics Nationals with video review. Huggy is talking about getting a Ruger Precision Rifle in 338 Lapua Magnum.

However, he also shoots pistol, 3-gun, subgun, tactical matches and pretty much anything that has to do with pulling a trigger. Take a ride with us as we travel throu…

This Week on The Casual Hour… The show must go on, even if it means Chase is mostly just watching postseason baseball out of the corner of his eye for most of the episode. In any case, We get some early thoughts on Jett: The Far Shore, New World, and FIFA 22 and then dive into Twitch data leaks, whatever the hell Konami is up to, and Sora coming to…
 
This week I guy one-on-one with Phillip Velayo. He is one-half of Modern Day Sniper. Phillip was a USMC Scout/Sniper and an instructor at the 1st Marine Division schoolhouse (think California). Even at 2+ hours, we leave a lot of stones unturned. This episode could easily be 4 or 5 two-hour episodes. This is literally old-school and new-school talk…

This week we talk to Mike Shatalov. He grew in in the Soviet Union, was rationed food as a kid, joined the US Army and jumped into Russia years later, became a high-level competitive parachutist and is now a Grand Master in the USPSA shooting production, which is dying out like the Soviet Union. We had a great time talking. So much so, we broke thi…
 
The Sega 32X is not a good system. It clogs up your outlets, doesn’t have many games and was already behind the times when it first released. And yet, Chase has two of them. Go figure. In this Deep Dive, we run down the full story of the ill-fated 32X and why it still holds a place in our hearts. // T W I T C H -------------------------------------…

This week, we focus on a different aspect of shooting. If you shot Area 8, you know how hot and muggy it was. I ran across a beverage that claimed to work 110% better than water. That beverage is HOIST. I, Dave, reached out to HOIST and Rachel Trotta accepted my invitation to be on the podcast and talk about it. It is, by far, the best hydration be…

This week, Leo and I speak with Matthew Nash. He's a former Marine, current LEO that competes in USPSA.
