Yeah. I don't think it added anything to the subject and what was included has been covered better in other sources.

Charlie finished 10th at limited Nationals last year. The book is a good read, very specific in it's assertions, less Zen.

Charlie is Cha-lee on Enos, probably the highest classified shooter that regularly contributes there.

It was interesting to meet him at Nats and see how his personality compared to online.

By itself, the book is not bad, but not the awesomest thing ever. OTOH, taking a class from charlie is pretty valuable, and he includes the book in the class price and sends it to you beforehand to read as homework. It definitely made the class more efficient.

You dont need to be a national champion to be a great trainer/coach.  I would argue that is not that high on the list of things to check.  How many great coaches can you think of who didn't win a championship but can create champions?  In my past life showing reining and cutting horses the best pro/open trainer I knew of never won shit nationally, but his non-pro riders kicked ass at all the big shows.

 

The one coach I'd love to take a clinic with in this game I dont think has won a top 16 at nats.

Totally disagree with this. Someone who took top 10 at nationals is a very solid shooter and would be more than qualified to instruct others in the sport.

In fact, I wish more GMs would do podcasts, classes, and books. Just because you are not a national champion does not mean you don’t have something you can contribute that would help another competitor.

This is Doodie, he was being sarcastic or eating crayons. If the former it gets a chuckle, if the latter please be understanding.

There is little to nothing to be gained from such actions for your average GM. If you have a passion to create such content, great. But it seems like more of a waste of time than anything else. Classes would be about the only thing. And that's if you can put up with your local guys for a while to actually gain some cash from it.

If you actually seek greater understanding for yourself, one good path towards that is to teach what you know.

Yea... I get more frustrated teaching those people and then watching them either not put in effort or ignore what you have to say entirely. Some people are meant for teaching and some arent. I personally expect someone to put as much into getting better as I did. If not, fuck off.

I agree with that. waste of time trying to teach people who aren't putting in the effort.

That’s always an interesting discovery. In this case, I’m rather curious how it went.
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.

Everyone on the internet is doing that. Here at doodie people are just more honest about it.
