Using a gun in self-defense does not always make you the clear cut good guy. The police and prosecutors might not see you as a hero, but as a villain. One of our Grad Program members had to use his gun to stop an attacker, but the story did not end there. We have a number of lessons to consider.

How badly do you want to make hippies cry and the weak uncomfortable? During our Brownell’s Bullet Points Guns and Gear segment, we have the perfect tool to make the weak nervous and hippies scared.

Also, during this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, the Professor reminds you of one very critical, but often overlooked piece of gear that is essential for the armed citizen. Listen louder.
