Friend of the show, Chad Francis is on the podcast and we discuss the high price of ammo and… Well pretty much the high price of everything else.
You may know Chad as the Match Director for the Gadsden Shotgun Championship and Generation III Gun, two great matches that take place at Chad’s range in Iberia, MO. Chad has a long career in 3-Gun and after raising a daughter in the shooting sports, he understands a thing or two about minding where you spend your entertainment dollars.
In this podcast I break down my projected 2021 costs to attend Generation III Gun and compare them to the cost of previous years in the shooting sports. How much more expensive is it to shoot a major match in 2021? The answer may surprise you.
