Student of the Gun Radio

Is it fair to award the US Military with the “World’s Slowest Learners” Award? Let us take a long look at the history of disarming and distrusting US service members. How many more of your sons and daughters need to be murdered before they are “allowed” to protect themselves?  During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, we consider the Brownells Exclusive Polymer80 Glock-like frame. How difficult is it to assemble your own pistol in your workshop or garage?  Also, we have a SOTG Homeroom for you from Crossbreed Holsters. When it comes to being an armed citizen and dangerous...

Could we possibly see the end of the SBR, or more pointedly, the end of restrictive laws governing the SBR? The answer is “yes” if we can get behind some of our congressmen who have proposed an end to the egregious short-barreled rifle restrictions. Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question for us regarding selecting an appropriate concealed carry handgun for a small woman. Is .380 acp the answer? Or, is 9mm the way to go? During our Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com, Professor Paul reminds us of the value of mentors. He takes a moment to pay tribute to one of his mentors who...

Student of the Gun Radio

If you carry your gun while Christmas shopping, does that make you paranoid? Are concealed carriers just asking for trouble by being armed during the holiday season? We consider recent incidents that shed light on that subject. During our Brownells Bullet Point segment, Paul discusses a recent AR magazine upgrade. We also spotted a very interesting new product on the Brownells website that fit with our fighting with lights topic. We also have a SOTG Homeroom for you from Crossbreed Holsters.

Student of the Gun Radio

During today’s installment of the Warrior of the Week, we have posed a great question; Should you join a Militia? Now the media has done a good job the last decade or so making “Militia” seem like a dirty word. But Prof. Paul dives into what it really means, and whether you should consider joining or establishing one in your area. If you are in Virginia though, that may become difficult soon. The socialists up there are attempting to make the assembly of a militia, and certain forms of training, a Felony. However, there is this little thing called the Efficiency of the Militia Act A.K.A....

Student of the Gun Radio

We wish this were fiction, but killer hogs are a reality in the United States, particularly in Texas. One small town is mourning the loss of a woman killed by wild hogs this last week. How did the problem get this bad?  During our Brownells Bullet Points, we consider the Ghost Gun boogeyman and the reality of the Polymer80 products. Should be afraid of Ghost Guns or should we focus instead on instruments of liberty?  For our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we once more focus on being dangerous on demand. Can the police keep you safe from monsters and killers? What happens...

Student of the Gun Radio

When your Universal Healthcare system is broke and failing, what do you do? You withhold care from people who you have accused of “Hate Speech”. That should save the UK millions of pounds. During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Professor Paul discusses the idea of “breaking in guns.” In this day and age, is there a legitimate reason why a gun might need a break-in period? Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we ponder the question, do people who are poor or “broke” have the right to self-defense? Before you answer, the Internet gun community might...

Student of the Gun Radio

Pro-Democracy protesters in Hong Kong have begun to fight back against the Chinese communist police, but not in the way you might expect. Disarmed by a tyrannical regime, protesters have gone medieval in their fight to have their demands heard.  Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a detailed and thoughtful question as to just what American patriots can do, besides vote once every four years, to return the nation to its former glory?  Also, we have a Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com. This week will consider the importance of the LMI (like-minded individual), how we can find...

In a shocking example of 911 failure, a Salt Lake City woman and her sister fought for their lives against a knife-wielding maniac and the 911 police dispatcher FAILED to send them help because they did not answer all of the required questions.  During our Brownells Bullet Points segment, Professor Paul discusses a recent experience from the rifle range. Can factory new ammunition fail? What is more important, cost or quality control? Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we consider what happens when the state forbids the peasants from being dangerous on demand....

We have a special Veterans Day discussion for you today. What role do veterans have regarding leadership in an ailing nation? Professor Paul focuses on veterans refusing to accept the status of a victim. Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week wants to know why we consider Online Great Books to be such a valuable resource and program.

We will refer back to the Patriot Bookshelf. Thanks for being a part of SOTG!...

An Oregon teacher put the lives of his students before his own and confronted and disarmed a student who brought a gun to school. This act of bravery flies in the face of the anti-gun crowd who say that teachers cannot be trusted to make life or death decision regarding the safety of children.

During our Brownells Bullet Points discussion, Paul and Jarrad consider magazines. We all know that the magazine will wear out over time and need to be replaced. Is there a time that magazines can be repaired, and how can we do that? 

For this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we consider the importance of being able to be dangerous on demand. A young father lost his life because he was not able to be dangerous on demand and one police officer is alive today because he had the training and carried the gear. We have lessons to learn. 

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:

Enjoy the show! And remember…
You’re a Beginner Once, a Student For Life!

A copy of our newest report is available here. Copies of our annual reports from 2014 through 2018 are available here.

Summary
The number of concealed handgun permits has increased for the third year in a row. The figure now stands at over 18.66 million– a 304% increase since 2007. It’s also an 8% increase over the number of permits we counted a year ago in 2018. Unlike gun ownership surveys that may be affected by people’s unwillingness to answer personal questions, concealed handgun permit data is the only really “hard data” that we have. Sixteen states are missing from the data because people there don’t even need a permit to carry.
