Thank you Rick and Steve for your efforts to produce and distribute the PF Show! I am new to shooting sports so when I found your podcast it was like hitting the jackpot... hundreds of questions answered, detailed explanations, and great tips. Going to find my first shoot this fall... keep up the great work!

Episode 39 - Special Interview with Massad Ayoob
Rick had a chance to catch up with Mas from the ProArms Podcast (http://proarmspodcast.com) when he was in Washington to shoot at Rick's Washington State IDPA State match 2011. Rick picked Mas' brain about how he felt about the match and how IDPA relates to self-defense in general. It's a pretty enlightening interview.

Episode 50 - Gunsmithing with JPL : Checkering
This week, we start a small segment focusing on what most competitive shooters end up learning, gunsmithing. Although some might adopt this career path, most are just happy with know enough to maintain and improve their competition guns. We've asked John from http://www.jplprecision.com to come back and show us how things are done in his shop. In this week's case, all about checkering the front strap of a 1911 frame.

If there's something you want to see John cover, please send us an email at [email protected].

Being a machinist I can really understand the work he is doing on the manual machine. However doing both manual, CNC and CNC programming I can see how a CNC would be an advantage if he was doing alot of those at a time. But for one off's he's got a great setup.

Episode 51 - Competition vs Self Defense
The proverbial comparison. The instigator of many rule arguments and interpretations. Shooting games like USPSA and IDPA were originally created to simulate real-world self defense scenarios but have changed dramatically to take into account safety and consistency. So the question we get most of the time is, does participating in USPSA or IDPA help with Self Defense skills?
