    Jeff Emrich competes in USPSA and came in 7th in the 2020 National Championship. His road to being a high level competitor goes back to his history of always excelling in sports. He tributes his quick success to the drive and practice he used to do in athletics that carried over into shooting a handgun in compeition.
    Recently, Jeff ran into a medical crossroad and almost had his dream of being a national champion taken away…not to mention almost dying. Listen to his compelling story this week on the show.

    Paul Phegan comes from the Land Down Under. He is a National Champion in IPSC in Australia and part of their world team for the upcoming 2021 World Shoot. Paul has an interesting story when it comes to shooting since having a gun in Australia is very difficult. Also, with COVID and the ammo crisis, shooting matches and practice have changed.
    But what is great about Paul, is he shares his training secrets and explains what it took to be a National Champion.

    Joel Park - Practical Shooting Training is His New Book

    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.

    Shannon Smith - On His Own Again

    Shannon Smith served in the US Army and was in the Ranger’s Regiment. Shannon also got into competitive shooting and worked his way up to currently being on Team USA for the upcoming World Shoot. Shannon has worked at the Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof, FL for the past decade and is now heading off on his own. I’ve had Shannon on the show years ago and he was on the Shooter’s Summit. Shannon is as no-nonsense as they come and we definitely have an interesting conversation.

    Steve Anderson - Understanding Mental Management

    Steve Anderson - Understanding Mental Management

    It’s 2021 and to begin the year I’m bringing on Steve Anderson, shooting coach and host of “That Shooting Show”. Steve is the only practical shooting instructor who has been certified in Lanny Bassham’s “Mental Management Systems”. This is the program Lanny teaches and coaches. Lanny wrote the book “With Winning in Mind” which a lot of competitors as well as tactical teams have used for success.
    I took the program with Steve and wanted to ask him questions that help explain why people would want to learn it.

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.
