Listener Question:

  • Mike: First off, great show I enjoy the good topic and insight into the firearms world. I shoot both Cowboy and USPSA, so there are frequent topics which interest me. Julie, you must take up Randi on her offer to shoot Cowboy - you will love it. It is just a fun and family friendly experience. Also, your bucket list - Thompson. I have been fortunate to have fired a full auto Thompson, and it was FUN! Next time you are in Vegas, they have gun shop which you can rent a Thompson - go and do it! Wish I could own one, but my State will not allow it. Keep up the great show.
  • Brian: Hi Ladies! I just completed an IDPA match with a stock Glock G17 (sharpshooter classification) and I know what I need to work on, but I don't know how. Here's what I noticed: When shooting faster at relatively longer distances, say 15-20 yards, my shots tend to be low or low-left. This is especially the case when there's time pressure such as disappearing targets. It's likely my trigger control but I can't tell if there are other factors such as grip, or stance. When I was a Novice and Marksman shooter, the low-left issue used to be happening at closer distances and slower speeds so I was able to improve, but now I seem to be hitting a plateau.
  • Also from Brian- I shoot a stock Glock 17 and a 34 in competitions. When I dry fire, am I supposed to see the front sight wobble at all, or should it be rock solid stable when the trigger breaks? Sometimes I'll see it bounce slightly right, sometimes left, and I'm still trying to figure how to keep it steady. Just want to make sure a "no-wobble" goal at the trigger break is something I should be setting.
  • Hi Randi and Julie, I'm Mike from the God and Guns Podcast on the Firearms Radio Network. Carol from the Fat2FitHQ podcast encouraged me to start listening to all the shows on the network. I'll be honest and confess that I was already listening to them all... except for Gun Girl Radio and Fat2FitHQ. My bad! It really wasn\'t for any reason other than already getting my podcast fill for each week. So over the past few weeks I've been working my way through the archives and have thoroughly enjoyed catching up on all your episodes. You ladies are so entertaining and definitely have my attention. There is so much to learn from you and if anyone cuts out a podcast to listen to, it shouldn't be this one. Keep up the great work and thank you for all you're doing in the women's arena! Belated congrats to Julie on the new baby! My wife and I just had our 3rd and he's 5 months old now. It's a blast!
  • Ryan How do you keep your hair so bouncy and full even after a day of shooting?

  • Nick - What the best live fire drill for improving speed and transitions in USPSA?

  • Jennifer - How do you handle a newborn and going back to shooting? How long of a break did you take? I have a newborn and barely have time for a shower in between nursing, diaper changes, and fussiness.
