    Episode 83: Brantley Merriam, GM Carry Optics Competitive Shooter, Placed 4th in the USPSA 2022 Carry Optics Nationals

    Episode 83: Brantley Merriam, GM Carry Optics Competitive Shooter, Placed 4th in the USPSA 2022 Carry Optics Nationals

    If you don't know the name yet, you will soon. Brantley just placed 4th overall at the 2022 USPSA Carry Optics Nationals. But where did he come from? How did he get there? With cut-out cardboard dry fire targets he made with boxes from Walmart... Not kidding.

    Brantley has always been on the quiet side, but now that people are starting to ask for help and tips from him, he's coming out of his shell. We talk about what it's like as an introvert learning to be more social. And once Brantley gets to know you better, he's more of a talker than you might think!  I ask him about what it took to make GM, how he set his sights on the top 5 at Nationals, and what he did to exceed that goal this year.  

    Keep your eyes peeled on this Alabama boy. He's a force to be reckoned with on the shooting range!!

    Episode 82: Adam Renno, Steel Challenge Competitive Shooter

    Episode 82: Adam Renno, Steel Challenge Competitive Shooter

    Adam is a Steel Challenge competitive shooter who travels the country competing. In this episode, Adam shares how his shooting journey came full circle at one specific competition. He remembers going to his first big match and squadding with some of the biggest names in Steel Challenge. He had been following them online, watching videos of them shoot, and they inspired him to want to get better. Because of how friendly and welcoming they were towards him as a new shooter, he knew he was in the right community that he wanted to be a part of. Years later, Adam now strives to be the kind of person that welcomes new shooters as they did him.

    Adam wasn't always pro gun. In fact, he shares how he converted from anti-gun, to being curious about firearms, to now not knowing life without them. Adam is a great role model on and off the range and always has a smile on his face.
