Description

Welcome to the Vortex Edge Podcast brought to you by firearms instructors who love training, guns, gear, and most importantly, helping shooters of all levels improve their skills and confidence with firearms.

Episode Date
Ep. 5 | Stop Buying Tiny Pistols... Or at Least Hear Us Out First...
00:17:46

Maybe you're shopping for your first handgun, or even thinking about getting one for a loved one who is newer to shooting. Conventional wisdom says "Smaller is less scary" and therefore, smaller handguns will be less formidable, easier to shoot, and produce lighter recoil for yourself or the newer shooter in your life. Instructor Pete Schreier is here to explain why the exact opposite is actually true and you'd be much better off starting with a full-size handgun. This isn't to say that small handguns have no place whatsoever, but we find that far too many people buy them for the wrong reasons, thinking they're getting something they would actually find with a larger firearm.

Ep. 4 | Pistol Training at Home with Dry Fire
00:51:23

We get it, you don't always have time, ammo, or access to go to the range and train with live fire. The good news is, you can still get some serious work done at home with no ammo at all and improve your skills tremendously with dry fire. In this episode, Instructor Brennan Brennecke, a huge proponent of dry fire, goes over some of his favorite dry fire drills and some best practices to ensure you're getting the most out of your training time. Just beware, once you listen to this episode, there's no more excuses for not getting any better with a pistol!

Ep. 3 | CQB is Not a Good Home Defense Plan
00:43:17

"Home Defense" by the very nature of the term, implies being on the defense of yourself and your loved ones in your home. It's easy to let emotion take over when thinking about the possible scenario of an intruder being in your home, leading to a plan that's more offensive in nature. Instructor Chris Urrutia talks about why "CQB" (Close Quarters Battle) or clearing all the rooms in your house on your own is not the best way to think about handling a home invasion. It also doesn't mean being weak or helpless either. Tune in to this episode to hear some smart, practical tactics to coming out on the other end unscathed and out of potential trouble.

Ep. 2 | Are You Actually Ready for a Shooting Class?
00:44:35

We believe any responsible citizen should exercise their right to own, use, and train with a firearm, but shooting classes take time and money - are you actually ready to make the most of that investment? Instructor Mike Griffin talks about his years of experience from both the student and instructor perspective, and the things you can do to make it count. Coming in with the right expectations, doing your homework before hand, ensuring your gear won't take you out of the action, best ways to take notes to learn from later on, and much more. If you're considering taking a shooting class at Vortex Edge or with any instructor, this episode is full of extremely valuable information to make the experience all the more useful and enjoyable.

Ep. 1 | How to Buy the Best Long-Range Ammo
00:36:16

When it comes to buying the best Long-Range ammo, there's no "One size fits all" answer. In this episode, Instructor Corey Eliasson explains why certain types of ammo that work great for others might not work for you, and how you can find the best shooting, most consistent ammo for your rifle. We also discuss why buying in bulk from the same "Lot" of ammunition can save you the headache of dealing with inconsistencies in your ammo, even when it's all the same type from the same manufacturer.
