Triangle Tactical Podcast - Competitive Shooting, Mostly

May 3, 2017


There are some things in the shooting sports that just suck. Today, I talk about those things. What sucks for you? Let me know in the comments below this post!

Anyways, here's my list:

  • Sub-machine gun matches
    • It sounds so awesome, but at the one I observed, people were just spraying and praying, and as someone who embraces the DVC (Speed/Power/Accuracy) thing, it just didn't do anything for me.
  • Carnival stages
    • I like hard shots. If you're a stage designer, make some shots challenging, but don't take every target out of the target shed and use them all on one stage. Just don't.
  • People who say "But it's just a club match?!"
    • Play the game, or don't play the game. If you're going to be there though, play by the rules.
  • Range Officers who are afraid to DQ people who are unsafe.
    • You're not doing the shooter a favor by letting them keep shooting. If safety is really #1, that means it takes precedent above the shooters feelings. If someone does something that's DQable, DQ them. 

Gear that Doesn't Suck

As I've mentioned many times, this podcast keeps running because of my affiliate links with All you've got to do is hit an Amazon link here on Triangle Tactical, then make your purchase on Amazon, and I'll get a kick back from Amazon for referring you. 

I spent a big part of last weekend re-doing the Gear that Doesn't Suck page that's got all of the Gear that Doesn't Suck items on it from the last year or so of podcast episodes. Check it out at
