  1. Here is my experience. I'll start off with the fact that I have always struggled with my weight still have a moderate body fat percentage (I fluctuate between 15-25%). My job requires a certain fitness level, but I have very little fast twitch speed. My regimen for the week is M/W/F full body workouts that are geared towards strength and power and Tu/Th are speed and agility and a cardio circuit respectively. I incorporate movement, mental performance, and dry fire drills in between and at the end. I have the use of a nutritionist at work a worked with her diligently to lose weight. Here is what she told me, and I have figure out works for me. 1. Watch your alcohol and sugar intake. Not only does it add excess calories it causes inflammation. Some fruit is good but don't over do it, its still sugar. 2. Don't eat after 6pm if possible. You want to leave about 2.5-3 hours in between when you eat and got to bed. This will also help with your sleep hygiene. 3. Try intermittent fasting 1-3 times per week. This is based on your activity level but start out slow. One time per week, then two times per week every other day, max is three. This resets your metabolism and gets rid of harmful bacteria in your gut that causes cravings. The goal is to go between 16-20 hours with zero calories (18 hours being the sweet spot). I would suggest that you take some BCCA's (sugar free of course) if you are more active. 4. I cut out gluten and dairy for 10.5 months of the year. Basically all year except for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and vacations. I am not necessarily allergic to gluten and dairy but I do believe I have some sort of intolerance, and by cutting them out it is far easier to maintain a more healthy weight and cuts down on inflammation. More importantly, all my joint pain went away after a week of doing all of the above, and I stopped taking anti-inflammatory medications. The lack of joint pain was a total win for me. I'm 38 years old and I have a lot of miles on my body, so getting rid of excess weight and pain helps me to move faster during stages. I went from 227 lbs. to 181 lbs. in less than five months with a 2000-2200 calorie diet of high fat (Lean meats/fresh vegetables/nuts) and low carbs. Just wanted to share what has worked for me, I hope I can help others as well.
  2. Normally, I shoot at the monthly Carolina Guns & Gear (CGG) match. It's on the first weekend of every month. I think they may be moving it to the range at Virginia International Raceway (VIR) though. There are also some fundraiser matches in and around Fayetteville or at CGG on occasion. They're normally low key and somehow linked to the military around Fort Bragg. There's also the Duskin 3 Gun match on Fort Bragg put on by the Duskin Stephens Foundation in conjunction with 3D Special Forces Group. There is the Annual Memorial 3 Gun match at Gryphon Group put on by the Memorial 3 Gun Foundation this September and I've also heard that there may be another 3 Gun match at Gryphon Group in April. Both the Duskin and the Memorial matches are geared towards the military but civilians do shoot in them. There are also matches at Clinton House South Carolina, I think there are still matches at Ant Hill down near Wilmington/South Port, and the Infidel Gunfighter league at Range 37 PSR just north of Fayetteville (I haven't been to any of the last three). I would also recommend Carbine matches put on by Strategic Match Design (SMD). The Noveske series is pretty awesome.
  3. I started out with a Glock 19, then moved to a Glock 17. I just picked up a CZ Shadow 2 for this season. I also have an 5" M&P 2.0 with an Apex trigger and match barrel that I'm going to use as well. I'll see how the CZ works out at the end of the month.
  4. Hello all, I'm Jay. I live in North Carolina. I've been shooting for most of my life for work and in my personal time. I don't know why I waited so long, but I just started competitive shooting about two years ago. I mainly shoot USPSA (Limited) and 3 Gun (Tac Ops) around NC.
