Main Topic: Evil Roy(Gene Pearcey) Mindset of a competitive shooter
Gene's Fact Sheet: I started shooting CAS when I was 50 years old. I started because I wanted to compete in something but was getting too old to race motorcycles or do martial arts as I had when I was younger. When I was 21 a friend and I started a Honda motorcycle business in Plainview, Texas, then one in Lubbock. I think we were the youngest Honda dealers with franchises. We split as partners after a while and ran them separate for several years. I sold mine in the mid- 1970s and build a movie theater and operated it until I went broke in the late 1970s. I figured out a way to build arch and dome structures in the late 1970s and have sold them all over the country for over 39 years mainly to be used for earth sheltered homes. I have raced motorcycles, did martial arts, shot competition, flown airplanes and been in Ham radio for over 20 years.
In CAS I have co-won the Spirit of the Game award with my wife and granddaughter, have been inducted into the SASS Hall of Fame, won Overall World and National championships in both Cowboy Action and Wild Bunch matches, won 35 or so overall state and regional matches I went the first 10 years of CAS with no finish lower that 10th overall. A combined total of 23 national and world championships. Now on Gun Stories most every week. Other tv shows in past. I was in a movie with Stella Stevens, Bo Swensen, Lee Majors, Buck Taylor, James Drury among others. IN 2005 or so. Hell to Pay

However, it seems that although the shooting sports (USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge) are experiencing growth at an impressive rate ......there are very few training schools/trainers geared toward assisting competition shooters. I shoot steel challenge and have progressed to the point that a trainer would be very beneficial. It is difficult, if not impossible, to self-diagnose those things that are causing you issues. I'm wondering if it is a regional thing? (I'm in PA). Or if possibly I just haven't looked hard enough or if other competition shooters have noticed the same thing. Just wondering your opinions on this. Thanks, again, for a quality podcast! John Stein York, PA
