You might not have heard of the recent attack at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas. The national media is not excited and Democrats are not pushing gun control because good people with guns prevented a massacre by a bad woman who had a gun. We are going to focus on the lessons we can learn about how to protect houses of worship. During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc. we will consider the “dot in the circle” reticle on the HWS optics and how you can use this purposeful design to your advantage. Also, during our FrogLube tip of the week, Jarrad will tell the best way to lube it up and get the...

SHOT Show 2024 has arrived and we’re already cracking skulls and taking names. Well not really, but it’s been a good time and seeing all kinds of cool stuff. Like from our friends at Hi-Point, showing off the ever-popular YEET Canon. The biggest event so far has been the Kahr Arms Book Signing!

And while we were there, Jarrad may have found his new calling… Listen Louder, hippies!...

What can we reasonably expect from the New Year given the facts and reality of our situation in the United States?

What does Living Armed mean to you? Do you carry a concealed handgun? Do you have a gun for home defense? During our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will consider information that all gun owners need to have. Do the 9mm AR or the 9mm AK have a valid purpose? For our Brownells Bullet Points we consider the state of the ammo industry and whether or not an AR or AK chambered in 9mm makes sense. What is dangerous training or what makes training dangerous?

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 more bad advice from people who should know better. What is “Bear Spray” really all about? We have an OC/Pepper Spray expert to give his opinion.

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:

SOURCES

From www.ammoland.com:

In the United States, some governmental authorities are strongly pushing the use of bear spray over other methods of protection against bear attacks. From the Montana Hunter Ed Course:

In sudden encounters, bear spray has proven to work. Bears sprayed with bear spray often stop attacking and, as such, are less likely to inflict serious injury. Use a firearm only as a last resort and only if bear spray is unavailable. Always use your bear spray to help a hunting partner who is being attacked. Misdirected bear spray is survivable; bullets are not. Bears wounded with an arrow, knife, or firearm may intensify the attack, and killing a bear charging at full speed is difficult at best. If you shoot a bear in self-defense, leave the scene as soon as it is safe, and report the incident to Fish, Wildlife & Parks immediately.

From www.ammoland.com:

In 2018, Detroit had 25 times the national average of reported justifiable homicides. The police chief of Detroit, James Craig, supports the residents' right to self defense. He supports the issuance of concealed carry permits. From detroitnews.com:

The county's report shows there were 289 homicides in Detroit in 2018, although the county lists all homicides, whereas Detroit, like most cities, doesn't include justifiable homicides in its report because those aren't crimes.

Assistant Detroit Police Chief David LeValley said there were 18 justifiable homicides in the city last year. Including those in the city's count raises the number of homicides to 279 — 10 fewer than the county reported.

Detroit's population in 2018 was listed as 672,662. The number of murders in Detroit were listed as 261. This equates to a homicide rate of 38.8 per 100,000 population. It is the second highest city in the nation. However, the number of murders are considerably lower than they were in 2012, just before Chief Craig took over. The numbers of murders are the lowest in 50 years. The population of Detroit has dropped; thus the rate of murders is still high. The rate was 55.2 per 100,000 in 2012. In 2012, the interim police chief, Chester Logan, blamed the homicide rate on guns.
