Student of the Gun Radio

Once more, we have evidence that Islamic terrorists were drugged up on captagon, the poor man’s cocaine or “chemical courage” when they slaughtered innocent people in a concert hall in Moscow. The primary question you must ask yourself is whether or not you have the skill and mindset to stand between evil and the innocent. During our Tech Talk from EOTech, we will consider a brand new optic in the LPVO arena.  EOTech will be releasing the new VUDU X line very soon. Keep an eye out for a video review. Also, for our SOTG Homeroom, we have a tragic incident to report. A young girl lost...

Student of the Gun Radio

The terrorist attack at the concert hall in Moscow was horrible, but we have to examine it and learn from it. What can American citizens do and how can they prepare to deal with the threats that we are facing?  During our SOTG Homeroom, from SOTGU, we will address a deadly shark attack. What could have been done differently? Could the victim have been saved? Whose responsibility is it to be prepared to save a life? Do you need an LPVO on your home defense rifle? During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc. we will consider that question in depth.  Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope...

Do you have your medical gear on you at all times? If not, why not? We bring you a story today that might hopefully make you reconsider your stance on having medical gear readily available all the time. Because as Prof. Paul & Jarrad were on their way down to Texas, they were directly behind a rear-ending on the highway, and instantly THEY became the first responders. Speaking of Texas, SOTGU came to Texas and held the Martial Application of the Pistol class this past weekend! It was a fantastic event, and we’ve got an after action report for you to enjoy. And hey, if this conversation...

Prof. Paul and Jarrad are on the road to Tennessee to teach you hippies some classes! So to bide the time, we’re giving you the full, uncut interview that we did with Ken Hackathorn, addressing his internet breaking opinion about weapon lights. But not only that, as he and the Professor reminisce and lament about the State of Policing in the country today, and what it would take to get either of them to sign back up for that job. Spoiler Alert: You can’t afford it.  So yeah, we have Ken Hackathorn on the show today, an internationally recognized trainer, to follow up on the discussion...

Student of the Gun Radio

No intellectually honest person can argue that we have allowed the United States of America to be put into a terrible, dangerous position. Hard times are coming. The question we address is what can each person do about that? We will talk about controlling those things that we can control.  During our Tech Talk from EOTech, Professor Paul will consider flashlights and weaponlights. What is the difference between Lumen and Candlepower? Does it make a difference?  Also, we have an SOTG Homeroom sponsored by Student of the Gun University.

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.

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.
