Minneapolis, MN residents are suing the city over what they claim is a failure to maintain adequate police protection. Yes, after the communist city council voted to defund the police, the people who voted for those same council members are now upset. Two things are immediately evident. First, liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent and, secondly, liberals never take responsibility for their own actions.   For our Warrior of the Week question, Professor Paul will address a common inquiry. More than one person has asked, “What can I do to convince my...

As usual, the media is lying for Democrats. Sometimes the lie is direct. Sometimes the lie is by omission and sometimes the lie is used for deflection. Regardless, we have numerous examples of media lies that benefit the liberal fascists who go by the name Democrat. During our Brownells Bullet Points, Professor Paul has some advice to keep you from ruining your AR magazines. Do you ever use speed loaders and clips of ammo? You need to listen louder. Also, during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we consider which is more important; Will or Skill. How does will fit in with our...

Student of the Gun Radio

How can the strategy of defense be a losing proposition? We consider the origins of the defensive mindset and examine how we have lost ground continuously over the last eighty plus years.  We have a Warrior of the Week question. Our warrior has a question about some of the overlooked items in the prepper pantry. What should every person have on hand, all the time in the pantry? How can we keep from missing or forgetting important items?  Remember our brand new Firearms Fitness Workout Program, available right now on ShopSOTG.com. How did humans survive without air conditioning and...

Today we have another special guest, Scott Hambrick of Online Great Books. We consider the ongoing culture war in the United States of America, how we got here, and what we can do to stop the war on our culture.  During our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will consider the ongoing mob violence in our cities and now our suburbs. What are citizens supposed to do when gangs of thugs descend on their neighborhoods?  Winter is coming and many of you are looking for indoor projects. Brownell is stocked up with reloading supplies and in many cases, they are running sales and...

Student of the Gun Radio

Today we have the privilege of being joined by Alex Bosco, the CEO of SB Tactical and the originator of the pistol brace. Paul, Jarrad, and Alex will address the history of the pistol brace throughout the last eight years.  We will also explore the current situation with Q and their Honey Badger rifle caliber pistol. Has the BATF overstepped their authority once again? Has that bureaucracy once more done a complete 180 and reversed itself? How are firearm manufacturers supposed to operate with no guidance and the constant fear that a three-letter agency will arbitrarily change its...

Student of the Gun Radio

Our military continues to be used as a liberal social experiment. The US Army Command Sergeant Major in charge of training has announced a new policy to make the new recruits’ basic training experience a bit more kind and gentle.  Not to be outdone, the US Navy has announced a #MeToo moved to make the ethos and mission statement of the Seals and SWCC “gender-neutral”.  Yep, because that is the greatest problem our nation is facing today; a lack of gender-neutral language. Pathetic! We have a Brownell’s Bullet Points for you. Rather than raise prices during the crisis,...

Remington Break Up, What Now? | SOTG 992 show art Remington Break Up, What Now? | SOTG 992

Student of the Gun Radio

The nation’s oldest gunmaker, Remington, previously filed bankruptcy and it, along with several other companies of the former Freedom Group, have been auctioned off. Who bought what and what does this mean to the shooting sports community? Our Warrior of the Week has a question about strength training and whether or not to combine iron plates with bumper plates. Jarrad will take the lead on this one and Professor Paul will add his experience. Do you know that you should be doing more to prepare your community and your family to deal with the threats facing our nation? We have launched a...

Paul and Jarrad visited our friends at Weatherby in Sheridan, Wyoming. What is new at Weatherby and what special offering do they have to commemorate their recent move? We’ll tell you and we will talk more about our recent trip to Montana. Are you going to assemble an AR anytime soon? During our Brownells Bullet Points Paul will highlight a new tool that might just become an absolute “must have” for black rifle built projects. Do you wear prescription glasses? For your SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, Professor Paul will discuss the merits of going to the range and shooting...

Paul and Jarrad have just returned from Montana and a trip to visit our friends at Blackhawk. The boys had the chance to work with a number of new products, including holsters, handguns, ammunition, and accessories. They will tell you all about it. Our Warrior of the Week has a serious question about recommendations for changing over from one hand to another after injury or debilitation. Paul has been training people to shoot right and left-handed for some time and offers suggestions. Whatever happened to STI race guns? For those who have not been paying attention lately, we will bring you up...

Student of the Gun Radio

A Chinese virologist, who managed to escape the clutches of the CCP, had published a report with details that indicate that SARS-CoV-2 was deliberately manipulated and created not a natural accident from a wet market. Do you have the courage to address this information? Would a Democrat Mayor and his team deliberately withhold information and lie just to maintain a stranglehold over their city? There is evidence emerging that the Mayor of Nashville, TN, and his cohorts did exactly that. Since it is Wednesday, we have a Brownells Bullet Points for you with some good news. We also have a SOTG...

From John Steinbeck:

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
