A great idea.
This should get newly interested folks started in the right direction.
And answer lots of the questions that get repeated.
Is there any way to keep this link at the top of this section of the forum?
Otherwise it will probably get kind of lost after a few days.

Episode 11 - Scoring Targets
Down 0, down 3, Two Alpha, Alpha Charlie. You hear these words being called out sometimes very quickly by safety or range officers during the end of a stage but do you really know if they are calling it correctly? Do you know how scoring is conducted in IDPA and USPSA? If there was one thing to double check in these games, it would be how your shots are scored. Steve and Rick talks about how scoring is done and talk about their experiences having done this for a long time.

Love the show, but the last episode doesn't seem to be working? Video shows as "private" on the site and downloaded I only got audio, no video.
