This is the last episode for a while. I'm taking the summer off to get used to life with our new baby, planning to come back with Triangle Tactical Podcast "Season 2" around August or Septemberish. See you then, carry on.
 
This week I talk about some RO stuff, after reading about a DQ online that the RO may have not helped. Also, we've got a few First Match voicemails that are FANTASTIC.
 
This week I talk about cheating in the shooting sports, and what to do ab out it.
 
This is the 6 year anniversary episode of the Triangle Tactical Podcast! To celebrate we're going live and answering what is probably the best batch of questions I've had for a Q&A show ever.
 
I've become interested in hearing from people who are the best in the world in other sports recently, so I've been actively seeking out podcasts with people who are the best of the best in what they do. I kept hearing references to an interview Joe Rogan did with an ultramarathoner named Courtney Dauwalter on his podcast. She won a race called ...…
 
This week Jeff from NC Shooters Supply is on the podcast answering your reloading questions. We had a lot of y'all submit questions, so first and foremost thank you for sending them in! There's a TON of information in this episode, but please feel free to put any more questions you may have in the comments, and we'll get them answered in the fu ...…
 
This week I had a local Production Master Travis Beal come on the podcast. Travis and I used to be close to the same level, and then all the sudden he rocketed past me and started really killing it as a shooter. As it stands now, he's going to become a Grand Master any time, and it's all because of the change of mindset he had after getting dis ...…
 
Chris asked on the Facebook group about competitive equity at matches: Ports - all ports being the same high or low height. Should they be mixed height? I'm taller than most shooters. Not the tallest guy on the range, but above average. Personally I don't have a problem with MD's mixing up the height of ports, as long as they aren't going too c ...…
 
I mentioned a theory on the podcast a couple weeks ago about how I expected that higher class shooters would probably pull away from lower class shooters on the shorter stages moreso than the longer stages, but gthat it was just a theory because I didn't want to do the math. Well, I got an email from Louis, and he pulled the data from the diffe ...…
 
5x5 Classifier Seems like the 5x5 classifier is causing some issues at IDPA matches. Something I hadn't thought of, but each shooter is putting 20 scored holes in the target with that drill, and that is a lot, especially with a bunch of shooters. Not sure how I feel about this. In USPSA rule 4.2.3 Paper targets must never be required to receive ...…
 
I've been dying from allergies all week so I didn't get much show-prep done, but I did get a bunch of good questions from the Triangle Tactical Podcast group that I answered on this weeks show.
 
There was a recent question in the Triangle Tactical Facebook group asking about what sort of things a Range Officer should bring when working a match. I thought I'd put together a list of things that are nice to have and make them into an episode. Coincidentally, most of the things on the list are also helpful to have around in your practice s ...…
 
I had a very frustrating practice session at the range on Monday. I burned about 500 rounds just shooting a plate rack because it's been something that has been really killing me at matches recently. Here's what happened: I could kill the plate rack at 10 yards. Anywhere between 3.1 and 3.5 seconds, no misses, no problems. At 15 yards, I was an ...…
 
SERPA There was a post on the r/competitionshooting subreddit this last week from someone talking about how they were an IDPA match last weekend and a new shooter was drawing from his SERPA holster at the match and plugged himself with a round at the hip, which then travelled down to around his knee. I don’t really want to beat the SERPA horse ...…
 
The USPSA Board of Directors announced some changes to several divisions in the BoD meeting notes from earlier this month, and in this episode I discuss the highlights and lowlights. I'd encourage you to go to the USPSA website, log-in, and actually read all of the changes. Far too many people have just been asking for the Cliffs Notes version ...…
 
Bryan What is a good age to start a junior shooter? A lot of it probably has to do with maturity/responsibility. Start them with a pellet gun, BB gun, .22? Bryan My practice range is an indoor range, and can be rather loud at times; what is great practice drill to do that does not require a shot timer? Mark Hello Lucas. Thank you for your show. ...…
 
Most folks out there can't afford to take a shooting class more than about once a year or so, and most people don't get instruction that much. Previous podcast episode on coaching here. I hear a lot of people talk about how they struggled for years doing things incorrectly. How they then changed something in their practice and saw improvement. ...…
 
Last week when I was on the range doing all the shooting for last weeks Junk Science show I noticed something that I’d never noticed before. When I was doing the step into the box draws, I could reliably shave a tenth of a second when I put my focus on the draw stroke, and not the step. If I just let the step happen, and put my focus on the dra ...…
 
For a long time I've wondered if the expensive race holsters that hold the gun just by the trigger guard are really worth the money, so that's what I've decided to find out for this episode. So, here's what I did: I setup a 10" steel plate at 10y. I tested both holsters with 50 draws in the following ways: Kydex - Stand and shoot 50 rounds. DAA ...…
 
Eric Lucas, I have a question for your Q&A if you would like. I know this touches on a subject you have talked about in the past. The closest USPSA club to me is an hour away. They shut down fairly early in the season. Last summer I still wanted to do some more matches and the next closest match is a 3 hour drive one way. Their website said tha ...…
 
Been thinking a bit about practice, and where I should be spending my time in practice since I haven’t shot a match in about 4 months. What are the areas that I need to work on? Probably everything, and if that’s a thing, starting can seem overwhelming. I mentioned on the podcast last week that I suck at lifting weights, but because I suck at i ...…
 
[powerpress] I’d like to see ALL of the major shooting sports stop fudging around with the rules all the time. We’ve been playing around with provisional divisions in USPSA for a couple years now, just make them official divisions. The USPSA part isn’t really a big deal, so lets talk about IDPA for a second. OMG. I literally can’t keep up. It’s ...…
 
I always like to do something different for the last episode of the year, so this year I had y'all ask me anything you wanted to ask. So, thanks for a great 2017! 2018 is going to be great!

2018 Goals. I'm writing it down here, throwing down the gauntlet for 2018: I will make USPSA Production Master before my birthday at the end of June.

What to do with ju ...…

If you’re local to me, listen up. If you’re not local to me, just bear with me or skip ahead 30 seconds or so. At the end of the year I’m killing the Triangle Tactical competitive shooting calendar on the website. There are a couple of reasons for this: It costs more than a hundred bucks a year for the software to keep it running. Not a huge de ...…

I'm not sure if it's because it's nearing the end of the traditional "shooting season" or what, but I've been talking to a few different people about how their match director is about to quit, or they themselves are a match director, and they don't know what to do because they're totally burned out, and they're not sure how to keep that burnout ...…

Tyler asks: "Hi Luke. I have a question for this weeks Q and A show. My buddy just got a shot timer, and we will be using it this week for the first time. We want to use it as effectively as possible so I'm putting together a spreadsheet to track how we do time wise. What should I track? Splits? Total time? Time to first shot? I honestly don't ...…
 
Matt asked in the Triangle Tactical Facebook group what to do when the matches in his area wind down for winter. Should he keep practicing and shooting all winter, or should he take the winter off? I think there are a few things to consider here: A lot of people will take the winter off. They'll have a bit of skill degradation, and they'll prob ...…
 
When is it time to replace gear, even if it isn’t an upgrade? I think everyones answer is going to be different to this question, but here’s my thoughts on it: I’ve got this old Glock 34 that I’ve been shooting forever. It has an unknown number of rounds through it, and I’ve replaced a bunch of parts in it over the years. At one point the gun s ...…

Last weekend there was a triathlon here in my little town, and we got to people watch a lot of folks cycling past our neighborhood. Cycling is my first love. Far and away above shooting, and I really cannot wait until I’m healed up enough to get back in the saddle. One guy in particular came riding by, and he stuck me as a little odd, and then ...…
