312: Big Changes Coming to 3-Gun?
In episode 300 I proposed several changes to the Big 3 Division’s gear requirements to further separate the divisions which have gotten very similar over the years and to lower the barrier of entry into the sport.
This week’s guest Aaron Hayes was energized by the proposal and reached out to discuss and challenge some of the changes. Listen in as we hash out the details and react to several pieces of audience feedback.
As a reminder, here are the proposed changes that we will be discussing on the show.

310: 7 Items You NEED to Bring to a Match
Whether you are going to a club match or a major match, most 3-Gun events happen out in the middle of nowhere or at least a good distance from the next town and you have obligations throughout the day such as shooting and resetting so it is important to have everything you need to be successful.
These 7 things will ensure that you are comfortable so you can put all of your focus on your stage plan.
If you’re reading this the day the podcast drops which is Wednesday November 17, you have until midnight tonight to sign up for the fantasy 3-gun league game for the 2021 Fort Benning Multigun Challenge.
Top 7 Items To Bring to a Match
* Dude Wipes – Baby wipes or Dude Wipes, having moist wipes on the range will change your life.* Super Glue – Close up small cuts and stop the bleeding.* Gloves – Protect your hands from lead exposure, rough steel & other hazards with inexpensive leather gloves.* Rain Gear – Golf umbrellas provide a lot of coverage. An oversized rain coat to cover your belt gear is also good.* Sun Gear – Sunscreen is bare minimum. Shemagh or tactical scarf and a straw yard work style hat are nice.* Bug Spray & After Bite – Don’t go cheap on the bug spray but either way you need an after bite stick!* Hydration & Nutrition – 16-20 oz of water per stage and snacks like apple sauce, Epic jerky or other individually packed snacks throughout the day.
You may notice that the one thing that all of these have in common is that they contribute to YOUR personal comfort on the range.
Big thanks to the folks that contributed to this list including Dave Horn, Kyle Litze, Matt Kitzmiller, Dillen Easley, Garret Grover, Mike Griswold, Josh Tarrant and Jay Christiansen.

307: Save Your Brain! Mitigating Lead Exposure with Lan Nguyen
Lan Nguyen of Dissident Arms is on this week’s show to discuss with us a very important health topic on the range and that is Lead Exposure.
Lead is found in ammunition, specifically the projectiles and primers, but can be incredibly toxic if ingested. Lead affects every one of the body’s organs including the bones and teeth and is extremely damaging to the nervous system.
Lan had a bit of a scare several years ago when he started shooting heavily that ended up with a doctor’s visit and a mitigation plan to stop the progression of his exposure. In this podcast we’ll give you tips on how to avoid lead, prevent ingestion on the range and how to deal with lead when you’ve been exposed.
Recommended D-Lead Products:
* Disposable Towels* Hand Soap* Respirator and Laundry Detergent* Body Wash and Shampoo

Love the pod cast. Waiting for my first club match next month learn tons on here. Trying to keep up with the acronyms is a chore sometimes but nothing a google search can’t fix. Keep up the good work.
Man Dave has done a fantastic job with the 3-Gun Show. Great information for all levels of shooters. Consistently creating new content that’s relevant to the current changes with the firearms, ammo, and gear. Thanks Dave for the fantastic content and keeping it alive…
Awesome show and great guests.
This by far my favorite podcast and I look forward to it and replay older episodes to pick up on tips I may have missed. Keep up the good work. You don't have to shoot 3-gun to get valuable info. and tips from this podcast.
It’s fun to have listened to Dave from the beginning and hear what he’s delivering now. 👍👍
