Listener Feedback:

Bryan - Canadian Service Conditions Radio: Love the show ladies. I initially started listening because women\'s opinions and input on shooting is a bit rare and as the father of two girls I was looking for tips on getting them involved.

Now I listen more just due to the great content on competitive shooting sports. Love it.

I wanted to throw out an idea related to small hands reaching controls on  pistols. I got this from Rob Pincus talking about how to operate pistols left handed.

Maybe try a pistol with an ambi mag release or with one on the right side of the frame, and activate it with the trigger finger, it\'s less of a reach. I'm a lefty using a 1911 and that is how I work my mag release.

As for the slide release, I just rack the slide. Being a lefty I don't have much choice. I think there are less than zero pistols on the market with a ride side slide release.  It\'s sad, we lefties get so little love in the gun industry. ha ha

John: Ladies,

I just found your podcast but I've gone back and listened to every podcast.  You're both superstars, at least among those of us that shoot.  I\'m sure that both of you do lots of meet and greets and I was wondering if you try to get out of shaking hands.  Next to your eyes your hands are important enough that shaking hands would bother me if I had your talent and skill.  Just curious, I've known some doctors that just won't shake hands because they're afraid some guy with an attitude will use a crusher grip on them.

One more question if I may.  Randi, why don't I see anyone shooting Schofield pistols in SASS?  Is there a specific rule against break open revolvers?  I've never shot SASS and I don't think there would be any great advantage in them but then again, I don't think I've ever seen anyone use one and I've looked enough on the web that I would have thought that I would have seen at least one person use one.  (Or two!)

Love the show and I'll try to get an iTunes review done for you all as soon as I can.

Eddie- I just had to write in to comment on (Episode 10) how touching and awesome this show was. I myself have an Autistic son, who is 8, as well a daughter who is 6. I love your show, which i listen to via the podcast app on my iphone while walking. I love shooting and firearms (NRA Life, NRA certified instructor, Frontsight First Family member, refuse to be a victim instructor) and think you and the guests you bring on are amazing role models. Stacy's comments were especially personal to me as we've been through all the things she has talked about as parents. Interesting too about the iPad, as it is truly a blessing of a product for my son. In fact as a UX designer I even started an iOS software company to start doing some software for autistic kids, professionals, and families, but I am not going to mention the name since the point of this message was to express appreciation and support, not to self promote.

As an aside, since this IS gun girl radio, my daughter recently saw a youtube video of a teen girl just tear it up at a 3gun competition and got very interested. then she wanted to see more videos of girls doing shooting, and now she's excited and asked me to teach her to shoot. I even started to build up an AR with Pink magpul furniture for her :-) still missing the complete upper assembly what with all the difficulties to buy stuff right now, but i'll finish it eventually! Thinking maybe i'll look into a .22 conversion kit for it as well since she's only 6! keep up the great job everyone, and all the best on your new family addition, Julie!

Allen via Twitter- you’re both active in social media what do newer or young pros need to think about when posting?

Kevin via Twitter never post anything you don’t want your grandmother to read.

Robert via Twitter my 13 y/o son is wanting to start IDPA. He wants to shoot ESP for the enhancements but I think he should start in SSP, thoughts?

Listener Feedback:

Steve from Facebook: What are the top things you have changed and/or added to a new Glock? Thank you! : )

ColonelRon ‏from Twitter - Can u discuss how a woman's grip differs from a man & how to compensate? I've heard different techniques but wife still has trouble

GEAR Dad ‏from Twitter - Is it realistic to use a pump shotgun (I have a Mossberg 500) to compete in #3Gun? LOVE the podcast!

Daniel from Facebook: Less of a question and more of a suggestion. If it comes up, don't try to defend modern civilian rifles by differentiating them from selective fire weapons. The differences don't matter and nobody cares anyway. The only point that needs to be made is that banning these firearms won't solve anything, and nobody can provide a shred of evidence that it will. We have a violence problem that won't be solved by taking one type of rarely-used firearm off store shelves, and focusing on that goal is just a distraction from the search for real solutions.

Listener Feedback:

Email from Jim & Samantha: Hay Jake and the guys and gals... Yes I listen to gun girl as well. My 14 yr old daughter is a competitive shooter as well. Julie G. is one of her idols anyway we listen on stitcher we don’t have Itunes but we unless we forget to, we almost always give a thumbs up. And look forward to every new show and book recommendations thanks again.

Email from Paul: Dear Ladies, it has been an honor to listen to two living legends of shooting. Great tips, great insight, and great personalities! I have a question for those of us, guys and girls, with smallish hands and working the controls of modern semi-auto handguns. What is your recommended technique for releasing the slide of a semi-auto when I can't reach the buttons? I almost feel as though I have to compromise my shooting grip to have my thumb be able to reach the slide release button. Thank you and keep up the good work.

Aidan from Facebook: What role do you think women play in securing the Second Amendment now and for future generations? How can old white guys help or hurt or should we just stay out of the way?

Jeong from Facebook: Why are so many women on the fence when it comes to 2ndA? Too many support it by word only and so not allow guns in the house.

Phil from Facebook: It is the women who will convince our elected officials that guns in the right hands is a good thing for our society and especially for the women in our society. It is pioneers like Julianna Crowder who will lead the charge in convincing women to communicate with their elected officials. We must all support these pioneers or our rights as we know them may perish. No question, just a comment to Julianna. Maintain the momentum! We are in your corner and in the arena together.

Susie from Facebook:  Very well said , Phil. The more we can educate women and get them involved the more they will help us to elect officials who will help us keep our freedom and support our 2nd amendment rights. Keep up the good work , Julianna, Randi, Julie and all ladies who take the time to get ladies to the range. I know here in Del Rio the interest is growing by leaps and bounds!!! It can only get better from here!

GGP 011 - USPSA Annual Autism Awareness Match

GGP 011 - USPSA Autism Awareness MatchIn this week's episode of Gun Girl Radio, Randi and Julie are showcasing how shooters are generous and caring people. They talk to special guest, Stacy Maillet, about a special charity event in New England, the USPSA Autism Awareness Match. The annual event raises money for the Nicholas James Foundation and it's programs. What have Randi & Julie been up to?

For the Week in Review segment of the show, Randi and Julie talk about a week of catch up, hunting and Randi's recent feature in Shooting Sports USA.

Main Topic - USPSA Annual Autism Awareness Match with Stacy Maillet

  • Stacy's Story - Stacy's son Nicholas was diagnosed with Autism
  • The Nicholas James Foundation and the Foundation's goals
  • Setting up a charity event at the range.
  • Getting support and raising funds
  • Ipads for kids and teachers
  • Parent mentoring program
  • Stacy shares Nicholas' progress, what division she shoots in USPSA and her advice for moms.

April 14, 2012 Registration at 8:15 a.m. Shooter's Meeting at 9:15 a.m. Harvard Sportsmen Club 250 Littleton County Rd. Harvard, MA 01451 6 stages, approximately 130-150 rounds Match Fee is $40.00

Listener Feedback:

Email from John - You, ladies are awesome and Jake is great as a host. Keep up the great work. I love hearing about the sports and you are motivating me to get into the action. One question that I have is how to motivate a woman in my life to shoot more. She has taken the NRA Women On Target and enjoyed it but she doesn't always want to go out to shoot with me. Do you have any ideas as to how I can get her out more?

Email from Jason - Hello Ladies! And Jake :-) First question is for both of you, its regarding technique and grip.  This video here is the promo that S&W put out when the Shield first came out last year. I remember when this thing came out last year, there was so much buzz about the Shield and my buddies and I couldn't wait to get our hands on one.  I've shot and owned 9mm subcompact guns before (carried a G26 for about 8 months), and the general rule I've seen is: the lighter the gun, the higher the recoil and the more difficulty (for me) doing follow up shots.  The way you (Julie) and Jerry shoot this gun make it look like you're shooting a 22 pistol.  What is the secret??

I understand that there are so many factors at play here, but I really would like to a) get rid of my flinch instinct and b) have much better results with double taps and follow up shots.  I've only shot one steel challenge and one 3gun so far -- only 2 matches total mostly because with my three little munchkins, I rarely have the time :-)  If you could talk just a little about basics and what is the best way to get rid of flinch and recoil anticipation that would be *awesome*!

My wife has recently decided to get her CHL, so I took her to the range and we practiced doing the Texas CHL test (3 yards, 5 yards, 7, etc etc).  To start, I had her just start shooting groups at 20 yards, and she consistently did 6-8 inch groups at 20 yards!  She's only take a few basics courses in the Austin area, but why is it that women are always better shots than men!  So on to my question. She didn't really care for my G17 or my CZ P-01 because they were just a little too big for her, and we don't have a good range around here that rents a high variety of guns.  I know you get this a lot, but here goes:  What sort of 9mm compact/subcompact would you recommend for a woman?  Do you guys have a CHL, and if so, what do you carry?

Email from David in Alabama - You mentioned dry fire practice several time in the last episode. Can you give an overview of what a typical dry fire practice session would look like? Also, how do you deal with having to rack the slide on a Glock during those sessions? Keep my favorite podcast going strong!

Email from Charlene - Thanks so much for the great podcasts. With the laws of differing countries, can you describe the process of getting your gear to and competing in international matches? How does one participate in those?

The next question deals with divisions. Looking at the videos posted on the net, it seems some people compete in multi-divisions. From observing my first match I don't see that as a possibility. Is something like that really practical? An example would be like competing in Limited and L10. I just started listening to you program and it is great. The three of you are an excellent combination.

Email from Jo-Anne - Loved your podcast, which I tuned in to specifically for your take on IDPA and the Winters. Imagine my surprise when Randi mentioned my team's stage as one of her favorites! Yup, I was the SO living in a garage for a week before, painting the "sides of beef" that made up the meat locker - so glad you enjoyed it! But that was simply the window dressing - the challenge that you found in that stage was purely the evil genius of our very talented Stage designer, Ted Picard. Shooters both love and curse his creations, as they definitely make you think the stage through and give you options, as Randi mentioned. Many years of stage design at the Nationals just makes him more devious, but I think complexity is what shooters expect from this premier match. I will forward your comments to him, which will undoubtedly spur even more creativity for next year! FYI, missed you this year, Julie, and hope to see you next year (maybe with the new little one? That's where I got to meet your first)

Note: Randi and Julie have been receiving more politically charged questions from listeners and right now. The hosts of Gun Girl Radio are not politicians or legal experts. We support responsible firearm ownership, shooting sports and the Second Amendment and we know that’s something important our listeners as well. One our strengths is to introduce and cultivate interest in the shooting sports so, we’ll be keeping political commentary to a minimum.

GGP 009 - Recap of the 2013 S&W IDPA Indoor Nationals

GGP 009 - Indoor Nationals RecapThe first major competition of the season, this episode of Gun Girl Radio recaps the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championships. Julie congratulates Randi on her High Lady win and has a list of questions about her match experience, stages, awards ceremony and more! Week in review - What have Randi & Julie been up to?

Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals

  • Stages
  • Lighting Conditions
  • Number of Movers
  • Accuracy Difficulty
  • Favorite Stage & Most Challenging Stage
  • Who was there
  • Fashion and the Awards Ceremony
  • University of Vermont & Coast Guard Academy support
  • Special thank you to Smith & Wesson

Listener Questions Match Specific : Leigh Ann from Facebook - What did you practice before you went to the match and do you feel it was helpful? Was it based on your pre-match review of the stage desciptions or was it based on your knowledge of your weaknesses? Also, how many women were competing this year and how many trophied? (not for the subcatagories like senior, etc.)

John from Facebook -  I would like to know how many rounds does the average (?) competitor in the Indoor Nationals fire in preparation for the match? How long before the match do competitors start training?

Ty from Facebook - Please talk about diaster factor. I was ill preparied for so many dis-appearing targets and failed to map out better order of fire. Revolvers are virtually limited vickers so getting that one and only shot (in some cases) was paramount. Yes and be sure to mention how much distance you put on the second place lady. Nice shooting Randi.

Chuck from Facebook - I'd be interested in the knowing how the low light/no light type stages went for you and what equipment/techniques seemed to offer the most advantages for those stages for you or for other shooters.

General Questions: Hayden from Facebook - What major match are you and Julie most looking forward to?

Tom from Facebook -  My daughter is 13 and really enjoys shooting. Actually she's a better shot than me with our M&P .22. She has mentioned wanting to compete and I was wondering what you would recommend for a young female shooter to start competing?

Matt -  Hello Jake's Angels, a couple of comments and a question. I wanted to encourage people to try steel even if they don't have the 5 mags.A squad mate would be more than happy to reload your mags as you swap. Steel also helped me with idpa/icore tremendously. All the draws and transitions from target to target can't be beat. Now my ?, I shoot revolver almost always but do shoot a bottom feeder occasionally.Any tips on changing platforms from match to match? Its not as smooth of a transition as I would like when the matches are close together.

Robert from Twitter - Is practicing with a 22 caliber slide conversion a good idea?

What have Randi & Julie been up to?

  • Randi Rogers - Costa Rica IDPA NationalsRandi visited Costa Rica for combination competition trip and vacation where she won the women’s title at the IDPA Costa Rica Nationals
  • Julie recorded an episode of her monthly podcast, JulieG Radio.

  • Equipment considerations
  • History of the Sport

Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals

  • Types of stages
  • Lighting conditions
  • Awards ceremony
  • A little match history
  • Indoor Nationals experiences and favorite memories

Listener Questions:

Rick: Hi Ladies, I’m enjoying the podcast. I had the privilege of meeting Randi at the Texas State IDPA match (I was just watching, not participating) and told her that I was a big fan of hers....and Julie. After saying that and walking away to photograph some of the match, I began to think that it was a bit rude on my part mentioning being a fan of a competitor to Randi while she was shooting the match. Oops. Anyway, you can imagine how happy I was to find out that Randi and Julie were doing a podcast!

I do have a question.....how to pick up speed during a match and where along a course of fire that the ladies have found that they can pick up the most speed. I've been shooting our local club match that isn't pure IDPA but it does involve scoring zones and shooting around barriers, etc. Anyway, it seems that I haven't been able to rise to higher than 6th place finishes for several months now and I'm itching to gain a spot on some of our hotshots. ;D

Joe: Ladies (and Jake), I have a question regarding my wife and the creepers at our range. She and I both compete in IDPA. She's new to the sport and is already kicking butt. She is also the only lady shooter at our local matches. The problem is that every guy there seems to think she needs their advice. She\'s polite and listens to them all with patience but she\'s starting to get a little tired of it. I know it sounds like I'm just being jealous, but I assure you that\'s not it. My wife can handle herself! But that\'s also the problem. I don't want to step in, because it would only come off as a jealous jerk husband and I do have to shoot with these guys every weekend. Do you have any advice?

Chuck from facebook & Jace from Twitter: Any news on the possible rule changes in IDPA?

Matt: How hard is it to mentally switch rule sets from USPSA and back?

Sarah: What do ladies keep in the pockets of your shooting vests?

Matt: Why aren't there any exclusive Top IDPA shooters? I.E. Why is it that the top uspsa shooters who don't shoot or practice for IDPA show up at the nationals and completely dominate?
