7: Rick Birdsall on leveraging your relationships to accelerate your growth and what it’s like to be in a 3GN shootoff

ArmaLite Ambassador Rick Birdsall uses his mechanical engineering mind to whoop up on the old guys by treating 3-Gun like a sport rather than a hobby and embracing the science of shooting. And you can too. Rick also tells us how analyizing your stage options and reacting when a stage plan has come apart is what separates the good multigun shooter from the great multigun shooter and why you should get off the couch and train!

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How Barack Obama encouraged Rick to get into 3-Gun
  • Why adjusting on the fly and thinking on your feet is what separates the good from the great in 3Gun
  • How to program your brain to remember the sequence of your stage plan to ensure success
  • Why you should take each match experience and turn it into a goal for your next practice session
  • How to make sure you’re not wasting ammo by coming up with a plan for that practice session
  • And more!
