The 3-Gun Show Interview Format

I am excited to have you as the featured guest on The 3-Gun Show, a podcast based on the sport of 3-Gun and practical shooting. During our chat our listeners will get to know you as a person as well as a shooter and learn what skills, gear and experiences make you the successful competitor that you are.

Below is the interview format for you to check out before the interview. I may or may not ask all of the questions depending on where the conversation takes us.

As you likely know from years of listening to speeches, radio, podcasts and conversations, the more real-life stories and examples you can provide will make for a better interview for our audience.

Definitely treat the interview as a relaxed talk between a couple of friends over a beer.

Thanks again for sharing your experience!
