Did you hear about the “mass shooting” in Philadelphia? We are willing to bet that unless you live in Pennsylvania, you did not. You might ask yourself why? The media loves blood in the streets and they love pushing gun control, why bury this story?  How much scope is too much scope? During our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc we consider the pros and cons of high powered optics.  Does Gun Control make you safer? Are countries that restrict gun ownership “safer”? For our SOTG Homeroom we will address a horrific story from Mexico where unarmed tourists were murdered for their truck...

Student of the Gun Radio

A township in Michigan has declared itself a 2nd Amendment sanctuary and has invited all of the adult citizens of said township to become members of a citizens’ militia. Besides the Bill of Rights, is the existence of the militia codified by law in the United States? During our SOTG Homeroom from Student of the Gun University, we will examine the new law allowing teachers and school staff members in Tennessee to be armed at work. Tennessee is not the first state to arm teachers, though, based upon the behavior of the leftwing lunatics you would think this move is unprecedented. Also, during...

Islamic Terrorists Drugged to Kill & No More Naked Guns | SOTG 1235 show art Islamic Terrorists Drugged to Kill & No More Naked Guns | SOTG 1235

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.

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...

Student of the Gun University is pleased to partner with DoubleTap Ammunition to give our students even more of a “value added” experience.

All students who enroll in the Martial Application of the Pistol, the Martial Application of the Rifle, or the Martial Application of the Shotgun residency classes will receive a complimentary box of 9x19mm training ammunition from DoubleTap Ammo to use in class.

This is the Flagship class at SOTGU, you should take this class FIRST when training with us. Understanding that physical skills are perishable, dedicated students take this class 1x per year.

The Martial Application of the Pistol program is designed to give you an in depth and thorough overview of the pistol or handgun as a fighting instrument. In order to accomplish this task, we will consider some of the history of the modern fighting handgun as well as to apply the most important question: what is our goal? 

What do we hope to achieve or accomplish? It is only by examining and considering our mission, purpose, and our goal that we can undertake the task of learning and expanding our education and skill. We have endeavored to meet and exceed those criteria through the Martial Application of the Pistol program.
