The Silvercore Podcast Ep. 9 – Grizzly Bear Attack

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.

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.

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.

Expanding The Conversation | Changing The Narrative

The day is here! We’re so excited to announce the launch of our latest endeavour, the Silvercore Podcast. To get you up to speed, here is a brief snapshot of where we have come and where we are going….

Silvercore started as a sole proprietorship over 20 years ago and fully incorporated in 2003.

Silvercore derived its name from two of our founder’s grandparents, “Silver” Armeneau, and “Core” Cornelius Bader. Silver ran away from home at 12 years old and earned his living as a travelling motorcycle daredevil before going on to be a decorated WWII veteran and finally a Vancouver Police Detective.  “Core”,  Cornelius Bader, immigrated from the Netherlands and became a successful entrepreneur, running Bader’s Dutch Cookies, employing a large workforce which kept his product on store shelves on both sides of the border.

Silvercore holds on to and maintains the core values of our namesakes, and attracts co-workers who share in these values of hard work and pragmatism combined with daring and innovation to push, ourselves, our partners and the industry as a whole further.   Silvercore was the first company of it’s kind in Canada, delivering high-quality instruction to the general public as well as maintaining contracts with government and private industries in the fields of firearms training, consulting and defendable program creation and countrywide gunsmithing. Silvercore has trained the majority of active CFSC/CRFSC instructors in the lower mainland, created Canada’s first, and best, federal gun club, and as the leader in firearms training, has pushed the industry to new heights all well-supporting others across Canada to similarly achieve more.      

Now, we are proud to announce the brand new Silvercore Podcast! This is our chance to share, not only our knowledge with you but also to bring other industry leaders to the table so that they may share in their experiences, successes and failures so that others can build upon the groundwork that has already been laid.

As any entrepreneur will tell you, the path to success is rarely easy.  In fact, nothing truly worthwhile ever comes easy. So this is your chance to tune in and listen as we discuss hunting, fishing, firearms, the great outdoors, the industry in general as well as operating a business in an admittedly adverse environment all while focusing on positive, proactive measures that we curate to be of the highest value to you.

No Whining. No Politics. No B.S. We enjoy what we do, and we are going to share that enjoyment with you. We are Silvercore, and this is the Silvercore Podcast. 

You can listen to our podcast on Podbean and Apple iTunes. To find us on these apps, all you’ll have to do is search for ‘The Silvercore Podcast’, and while you’re there don’t forget to hit the subscribe button as you don’t want to miss an episode!

– The difference between police and civilian firearms training
