    #125: Worse or just different?

    This week I discuss the current events in USPSA including the resignation of the Area 5 director and the surprise move to reincorporate in Alabama, as well as a main topic about whether changes in gear are actually worse, or just unexpected and different, leading the reviewer to reflexively dislike them.

Informed whining

Title’s a joke Ben makes good shooting content that does a really good job of not going extemely towards one opinion.
Plus his voice sounds nice i fall asleep to it.

Subject matter expert

The always humble Ben would never consider himself that but I believe it’s safe to say it. Lots of knowledge being dropped in this podcast and it’s an amazing resource for any one actively competing or just looking to start competition shooting.

Great podcast!

Great podcast from engaging USPSA GM shooter. He covers a lot of competitive shooting considerations and strategies to improve.
