    Joel Park - Practical Shooting Training is His New Book

    I had Joel Park on the show last year after he and World Champion Ben Stoeger wrote their first book together “Match Mentality”. Now the duo teamed up again to write “Practical Shooting Training”. This new book is divided into four different shooting levels, from beginner training to someone who wants to be a National Champion. Not only does it give you a guide to follow but also has diagrams of what the targets will look like based on many different shooting problems.
    Joel competes and is also part of the Practical Shooting Training Group with Ben and Hwansik Kim. Recently, Joel also started a new podcast called Training Group Live.

The Best gun related podcast year after year

I listen to A LOT of podcast and find Firearms Nation Podcast to be my favorite.
Constantly delivering quality content with top level guests and not trying to push sponsored products.
Aric Levy (the host) has alway ended his show with “carry your gun, get some training, look out for one another, we’re all in this together”.
Never before has this been more important.
Still listening and loving this podcast.
