77: What it Takes to Shoot at the Top of 3-Gun with Nick Atkinson

Nick Atkinson is back on the podcast this week, fresh off of a second place finish at the 3-Gun Nation Southwestern Regional match. Nick and I chat about the match and the struggles we had to overcome to perform, shooting a day in the life of a 3-Gunner video and then Nick takes it deep with some final thoughts.

Key topics in this podcast:

  • What sound does a jackrabbit make when you hit it with at .22?
  • How do you keep the weather and other externalities from affecting your mental game?
  • How and when to call wind before you shoot.
  • Developing a winning stage plan
  • Plus! The benefits of a $3000 rifle.
  • And more!
