Another enjoyable and informative show.
With each episode, I've either learned something new or been reminded of something I'd plumb forgot about.
Thanks.

as a new IPSC/USPSA shooter, (first match is in 3 days) i have found thepowerfactorshow to be an invaluable resource. by reading the rulebook, and watching all of your episodes, i feel surprisingly prepared for my first match, whereas 2 weeks ago, it was all a bit overwhelming.

thank you.

Just wanted to say thanks for this show! I have a desk job but don't deal with a lot of people during the day (work in IT) and so I end up listening to a lot of podcasts while I work. Having a good competitive shooting show to listen to is a very nice addition to my playlist .
