3: Travis Gibson of MGM Targets on how to talk to young shooters & eliminating negative self-talk


Episode 3 brings us 2014 FNH USA 3-gun Open Champion, MGM Junior 3Gun Camp Instructor, VP of MGM Targets and the man with the biggest mustache in the game – Travis Gibson. Travis brings some incredible stories and principles to the show from his quest for a safer hobby than Bull Riding to his philosophy on the mental game in competition shooting and building better humans as well as shooters out of the next generation.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why the family/fun balance is the most important piece of 3-Gun and how you can avoid the selfish trap that many shooters fall into.
  • How  WANTING to be successful can be the most important quality that you can have in competition shooting.
  • Why you should work hard, build up your skills and then maintain them with a tune-up over time.
  • Why proficiency with a pistol is the quickest skill to diminish and what you can do to prevent it.
  • The two most important… wait, three most important things for new and mid-level shooters to concentrate on in a match.
  • Why you should spend as much time thinking about a bad stage as you do thinking about a good stage.
  • Plus how you can get a FREE Travis Gibson signature (with purchase of rifle).
  • And more!
