Editorial January 2, 2020

Silvercore has been providing bear safety training to industry professionals, both in person as well as online, for many years, but this marks the first time we speak with someone who survived a horrific grizzly bear attack by using his pocket knife.

Colin is sharing his story to increase the knowledge base of bear behaviour and bear encounters. He hopes that we all become more aware of potential dangers and become adequately educated and prepared before entering into bear country.

The Silvercore Podcast Ep. 8 – Train Your Brain To Win Part 2

Editorial December 19, 2019

It’s here! The much-anticipated part 2 of the Train your Brain to Win series with Ryan Steacy. In part one, we sat down with Ryan and discussed the mental management practices that have allowed him to be the National Service Rifle Champion 5 years in a row.

Part one was recorded right before Ryan was to fly to Ottawa to compete at the Connaught Range to see if he could extend his winning streak to a 6th year in a row. In this episode, we delve deeper into Ryan’s mental management process, discuss Mental Marksmanship as coined by Keith Cunningham and Linda Miller, and field some questions from our listeners. Does Ryan’s process allow for a win 6 years in a row? Is this something that you can use in your everyday life? Listen and find out.

The Silvercore Podcast Ep. 5 – Yoga socks at the snipers hide. Graeme Foote.

Editorial November 7, 2019

In this episode, we sit down with  Graeme Foote. Graeme is a competitive shooter who is recently back from attending the Sniper’s Hide Cup, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of exciting things he should be commended for.

Instead, Foote should also be recognized for his excellent marksmanship abilities, his work ethic, and the work he does within the shooting community for Project Maple Seed.

Project Mapleseed is an apolitical rifle marksmanship training program that focuses on teaching traditional rifle marksmanship, and Foote is a Rifle Chair and active participant at the non-profit organization.

Why does anyone “need” a firearm in Canada?

Editorial January 6, 2011

 

The question of necessity as it pertains to firearms in Canada is an interesting one.  Sure we have all heard our American counterparts’ mantra about their “right to bear arms”, but this is Canada and the reoccurring question I have heard is “why on earth would anyone need a firearm”?

Dispelling the Myth’s of Firearms Ownership In Canada

Editorial January 6, 2011

I have been fortunate enough to have firearms experts safely instruct and mentor me from a very early age. Including the same firearms training as the police before I reached my teens, and soon after held certifications from Smith and Wesson, Glock, Remington, Beretta, and the Canadian government to name a few. I have been fortunate to be exposed to the professional side of firearms ownership, and that expertise has shaped my perspective of firearms ownership in Canada. I want to give back to the community by dispelling some of the firearm myths as well as answer the questions I hear most frequently. Some points of interest that have been raised are:

  • Why would anyone need a firearm?
  • Can anyone own firearms in Canada?  If so, what types of firearms and how do they start?
  • How can you legally
    • Store
    • transport or,
    • display firearms
    • My relative has a firearm that they left for me, what do I do?

If you have any questions you would like to have answered, by all means drop me an email and I will do my best to have them addressed.

Sincerely,

Travis Bader

CEO
