Episode 39 - Special Interview with Massad Ayoob
Rick had a chance to catch up with Mas from the ProArms Podcast (http://proarmspodcast.com) when he was in Washington to shoot at Rick's Washington State IDPA State match 2011. Rick picked Mas' brain about how he felt about the match and how IDPA relates to self-defense in general. It's a pretty enlightening interview.

Episode 50 - Gunsmithing with JPL : Checkering
This week, we start a small segment focusing on what most competitive shooters end up learning, gunsmithing. Although some might adopt this career path, most are just happy with know enough to maintain and improve their competition guns. We've asked John from http://www.jplprecision.com to come back and show us how things are done in his shop. In this week's case, all about checkering the front strap of a 1911 frame.

If there's something you want to see John cover, please send us an email at powerfactorshow@gmail.com.

Episode 51 - Competition vs Self Defense
The proverbial comparison. The instigator of many rule arguments and interpretations. Shooting games like USPSA and IDPA were originally created to simulate real-world self defense scenarios but have changed dramatically to take into account safety and consistency. So the question we get most of the time is, does participating in USPSA or IDPA help with Self Defense skills?

Episode 55 - Local Rules
USPSA and IDPA are largely governing bodies for the sport and the rules are laid out to ensure consistency across all participants and clubs. There are times when there are requests by local ranges/clubs to modify the rules or institute local criteria as these are usually safety related. Clubs do this because they don't want to risk losing their operating licenses. This week Steve, Rick and Caleb sit down to talk about this slightly heated topic that has got everybody in the local community up in arms.

Also, by popular request, we're accepting Course Designs and Courses of Fire videos from anyone for us to review/critique/advise. Please send them in to powerfactorshow@gmail.com
