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....

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

There is some good news to report from the Motor City. In Detroit, the latest crime reports show that murders are down and at the same time justifiable homicides are up. Why? A lot has to do with the Police Chief James Craig and his attitude and leadership regarding armed citizens. During our Brownells Bullet Point, Professor Paul considers the precision bolt action rifle. Specifically, we look at entry-level bolt guns and focus on some improvements we can make to them. Also, keeping with our focus on being dangerous on demand, during our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we discover...

SOURCES

From www.ammoland.com:

While searching for cases where pistols were used to defend against bears, three failures have been found. In the last published results, of 73 cases, that was a 4% failure rate. The very small sample size means a few cases can change the percentages of success or failure significantly. It is useful to know what happened in each case to determine how the failures and successes occurred.

The three failures involved the three species of North American bears. One case involving a polar bear and a .22 pistol in 1995, one case involving a grizzly bear and a .357 magnum in 2010, and one case involving a black bear and a .38 revolver in 2015.

Reasonably detailed accounts of the failures for the 2010 and 2015 attacks have been given in the last update, where 73 cases were examined.
