Hosted by three competitive shooters, all with vastly different experience.
We'll discuss competitive shooting, defensive shooting, guns, gear, training, maintenance and everything in between.
Love Nibbles and Functional Martial Arts
We take a step away from firearms as our main focus and talk about empty-handed and edged-weapon skills with Jacques Wagner, owner and lead coach at Crazy Monkey Centurion.
Jacques has blackbelts in multiple martial arts and has been a fulltime coach for more that 20 years. His studio is specifically for defensive training that is proven to work in the real world.
We discuss the differences between functional and non-functional arts. The benefits of participating in regular structured training, not just from a performance point of view in a fight but also the benefits it has for self confidence.
Becoming a “multitool” that is able to use the correct skillset for the issues you face and not always going directly to the most force available (firearm) to most of us.
Jacques has punched Gaz in the face, broken BigT multiple times (there’s photo evidence) and choked and nibbled Corn. He is intimately familiar with the #WTTGS crew.

Zen and Art of Practical Pistol
We speak to Albert about his journey into the world of shooting and ultimately into the world of competitive shooting.
He shares insights into shooting philosophy and the training he provides to the South African sport-shooting community.
His biggest achievements and proudest moments in the sport. Views on the future of the sport and where he might be competing after the 2021 Worldshoot in Thailand.
We chat about lockdown blues and why we all love IPSC so much.
There’s some poking fun at Corn for an early stuff up, because we run a highly professional podcast.
And finally Albert drops a bomb at the very end of the show! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VVGGTG2 (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VVGGTG2)
The American Gaz
Anderson Shooting Super Squad member Jay Beal joined USPSA to improve his carry gun skills and rapidly achieved Master in Open division shooting a Roland Special style Glock17 from appendix. He then moved on to Carry Optics where he got his Grand Master card in record time.
Jay tells us about where he started, how he progressed so rapidly. His training schedule and using Steven Anderson’s methods to great success.
He shared some great insights into the ratio between live fire and dryfire as well as some mental management ideas with us.
Jay is heading off to his first US Nationals, we wish him the best of luck and hope to speak with him again soon.

The Worldshoot Stories
Austen Stockbridge shares some of his best shooting stories with us. Where he started, his first wins, getting to Brazil. Becoming the 2002 IPSC Modified world champion and defending his title.
He shares some valuable insights into shooting at the highest level in the sport, specifically for the new guns going to the 2021 Thailand shoot.
The history behind the Racing Snake trophy is shared with us.
Austen has represented South Africa eight times. Competed in four different divisions and two categories, junior and open. His experience spans shoots from all over the world.
It was truly an honour having him take the time to talk to us, we’d love to have him back soon.
Apologies for the audio difficulties
Contacting MRS Techniques
Talking about shotguns. Different action types, ammunition selection, patterning, reliability, fundamentals and more. Some myths, some please don’ts.
There’s a bit of picking fun at box guns and of course the rule of semi-auto shotguns.
Terrick announces another fundamentals class coming up in October.
Getting Back To Shooting
With training, practice and matches starting back up, we decided to do a recap episode of our first matches post lockdown.
We discuss the things we noticed coming back from six months without competing. Match and range fitness, stage planning, scheduling future breaks away from competitive shooting and some concerns around Nationals.
There’s talk about firearm testing and equipment changes.
Discussion around Saturday’s fundamentals class presented by Terrick. There’s talk about the Miley incident. And then things go downhill from there.
