Matt Burkett of Predator Tactical showing off his 3-Guns

16: Matt Burkett of Predator Tactical on your mental game, early retirement and how to improve The 3-Gun Show


Matt Burkett of Predator Tactical joins us this week to talk about the shenanigans that go on behind the scenes of a major film production, how to be a good learner and why you should be working on your mental game at all times.

As most of you know the Predator Tactical Podcast going off the air was the inspiration for me to start The 3-Gun Show and I gush all over Matt to make sure he knows it. So much so that I had to split the show up into two episodes and this is part one. Be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for part two in a couple days.

In this Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why confidence is the number one thing you need to have to be successful in the shooting sports
  • The proper ratio of physical game to mental game that you should spend your practice time on
  • How playing racquetball and golf in college prepared Matt for competitive shooting
  • And more!
