Student of the Gun Radio

A Florida deputy sheriff unloaded his pistol at his own patrol car after being startled by an acorn that dropped on the car roof. It gets better. The supervisory sergeant joined the deputy in shooting his cruiser. Oh, did we tell you there was a handcuffed suspect in the car? Certainly there are some lessons to be learned here.  Another Ohio Sheriff has come forward to address the information and intelligence that was shared with senior law enforcement officials. What is the realistic threat facing the people of the United States? What can be done by every adult in America to prepare for...

Student of the Gun Radio

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...

The United States of America is a joke to the invaders who are infesting our nation. Witness the recent incident in New York City where 5 illegal invaders attacked two police officers. The criminals were released without bail and then they laughed and flipped off the news cameras.  During our Tech Talk from EOTech Optics, Professor Paul will address optics on handguns and the common issue of “I can’t find the dot.” How do we fix this issue and make the most of your gear?  Also, we have our Homeroom segment brought to you by .

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! Where we parked our butts down at Booth #13627, signed some books, and chatted with y’all! We went to the Beretta Range Day, and got to play with some of their latest and greatest innovations in firearms. And while we were there, Jarrad may have found his new calling… Listen Louder, hippies!...

Student of the Gun Radio

Can you manage the “stunning” recoil of the 5.56mm cartridge? Fear not. During our Brownells Bullet Points segment we will address this first world problem and work together to come up with a solution. Should teachers be dangerous on demand? For our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will consider a proposal being put forth in Utah to encourage more teachers to get training and carry, sort of, while at work. It’s a new year and we at Student of the Gun will be moving around the country a good bit. If you are attending the SHOT Show this year, we have several book signing events...

Student of the Gun Radio

Knowing and understanding the Deadly Force Checklist could be the difference between victory and disaster if you are ever put into a position where you are required to use a firearm to defend your life. We examine the Case of the Tacqaria Robbery in Texas. During our Brownells Bullet Points we will discuss the gun build. Are you planning to assemble your own rifle, pistol or shotgun?

Predictions for the New Year & Protect Yourself | SOTG 1222 show art Predictions for the New Year & Protect Yourself | SOTG 1222

Student of the Gun Radio

What can we reasonably expect from the New Year given the facts and reality of our situation in the United States? Can we force ourselves to have a “good year” with happy thoughts and positive vibes?  During our Brownells Bullet Points, we consider the state of the ammo industry and the new “Buy Now” stock price for ammunition. We also will discuss a new shotgun that the professor picked up. Are you prepared to defend yourself? We have one more example of how the state has no interest in protecting you during our weekly SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters.  Thanks for...

Student of the Gun Radio

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? Paul and Jarrad teamed up with Joey and Louis of Tactical Response for a Socratic Seminar to discuss the idea of dangerous training...

From www.nationalreview.com:

Yesterday, a terrifying scene played out in a Walmart in Springfield, Mo. A man pulled up to the store, donned body armor, and armed himself with a “tactical rifle,” a handgun, and more than 100 rounds of ammunition. He walked into the store and began recording himself on his phone as he pushed a shopping cart. The moment, complete with the video, had echoes of mass shootings from Christchurch to El Paso to Dayton.

Panicked customers fled, and the police sped toward the store, but by the time they arrived, the crisis had passed. A private citizen described as a “former firefighter” had pulled his firearm and was holding the man at gunpoint. That thing that supposedly never happens just happened again. A good guy with a gun averted a potential crisis.
