With Winning in Mind and Mental Management for the Competitive Shooter

I've been a big fan of Lanny Bassham's book "With Winning in Mind" for a few years. Recently I had a chance to listen to his Mental Management for Shooting Sports CD set. It's a 6 CD set and it emphasizes all of the topics in the book and expands on them while also introducing other aspects of Lanny's mental program he used to win his Olympic gold medal.  It served as a great reminder of what I need to do to prepare for next season and how I have to train not only my body and skills, but my brain for what is ahead. has partnered with the Mental Management Store to bring you his DVD series and of course his book, which I think EVERY serious competitive shooter should own.  Click the images below to check them out.

New site layout, team member and site contributor, Grandmaster AJ Stuart

Welcome to the new site layout. Hopefully this one is a bit easier on the eyes and less cluttered. We have big things planned for the end of this year and going into 2015 and I'm happy to announce the first one right now. is proud to announce that we have added USPSA Grandmaster AJ Stuart to our team as a site contributor and team shooter.  AJ has been a training partner of mine for years now and is a great resource to have when it comes to reloading, dry fire, gunsmithing and more. He is a sponsored shooter and works for King Shooter Supply in King of Prussia, PA.

You can see his thoughts here as he starts to add articles, range diaries and dryfire drill challenges to the site and also at King Shooter supply on Wednesday and Friday nights or most weekends on ranges throughout south eastern Pennsylvania.

Practice? We talking about practice?

I picked up a Stock 2 a few weeks ago and have just started hitting it hard in practice. This video is of my first "real" structured practice with it.

It's funny what turning on the camera does.  I was trying to get 10 draws (and hits) in a row under .90.  I was able to do it on command until I turned the camera on. Then I started getting tense and screwing up.  That feels a lot like what I do at matches when I start TRYING to go fast (especially classifier stages).  I'm going to try to put some artificial pressure on myself by using the video camera more and more. I told myself I'd post this run to Youtube no matter if I made 10 in a row or not, so here it is.

How about some bling? (The Cartel Gun)

I received my 6 inch USPSA Limited gun frame and slide back from Calico Coatings this week.  The coating is TiCN (titanium carbonitride) that was laid down on the gun through a PVD process after the parts were prepared using Calico's super micro finishing. The coating is similar to TiN that you see on some of the high end competition shotgun bolts in the 3 gun world, but that is only available in gold, so it was not an option for this build.  

The TiCN coating is very hard and extremely slick. So slick that my front sight that I had to hammer out of the gun slid right back in with only finger pressure, and when I applied locktite to the slide to hold it in place, the liquid beaded up and tried to run down the side of the slide. 

The pictures pretty much say it all. This is not a subdued gun. It is LOUD.  Something that might be found in a drug cartel boss's safe.  It has been dubbed The Cartel Gun.

The Ocho-load.'s ultra 3 gun shotgun caddies

It seems that only a few years ago that the weak hand shotgun load was the only game in town. Experts like Keith Garcia mastered the technique and were able to use it to speed through shotgun portions of major 3 gun matches by virtue of their pure speed.  Then came the load two method. Stacking two shells on a specialized rig in order to insert two at a time into the gun gave almost everyone a path to greatness. Next was the quad load. Building on the principle of the load two, this enabled the user to grab 4 shells at a time, and quickly load two at a time, twice, without having to reach back to the caddy for more shells.

Today, we have the next game changer in 3 gun. We believe this development will completely eliminate the advantage that shotgun speedloaders or even magazine fed shotguns have over their tube-fed rivals...the ocho-load.

These prototype caddies easily allow the user to grab eight shells at once, and quickly load the shotgun to full capacity without reaching back to the belt for more or fumbling shells.  Assembled from a titanium carbon fiber matrix for rigidity, with shell clips made of injection molded thermoplastic then machined on an 8 axis CNC machine, these are the most high tech and complex shotgun caddies ever designed and built.

We will be taking pre-orders starting next week. The ocho-load 24 piece as shown contains a triple stacked set of ocho-load caddies allowing the user to carry 24 shells in the same footprint on the belt as most 8 shell caddies.  Starting price for the setup, including belt attachment is $199.95. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Due to popular demand, we will also be releasing a ladies model designed to fit the smaller hands of our fairer 3 gunners. The design is very similar, and the rig will contain 24 shells of potent 20 gauge ammunition for our ladies.
