Being a Student of the Gun is not about being a novice or beginner. Student of the Gun represents a life’s journey of education, enlightenment and the enjoyment of firearms. Each week Student of the Gun will introduce our listeners to all manner of firearms related topics be they sport, recreation or personal defense. Unlike the television format, through the magic of digital radio, we will have the opportunity to explore topics more deeply rather than just give them a quick glance. Discussions will address both that which is current news in the firearms world as well as traditions and foundational principles. Student of the Gun, a beginner once, a student for life.

    Also, for this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, the Professor wants to know if you are ready to deal with the bullies on the left. Bullies don’t care if you think you are a nice or reasonable person. It is up to you to be prepared to deal with them.

    SOTG 793 - What is a Black Swan Event?

    Do you know what a Black Swan event is and how it could affect you? We are pleased to have Jeff Kirkham, co-author of Black Autumn on the show with us. Jeff and Paul will discuss the new book, Tourniquet Wars, training and much more.

    Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about flush magazines versus extended version for sub-compact handguns. Which is better and why?

    An already weakened U.S. economy crumbles after a rogue nation detonates a small nuclear bomb in a Los Angeles port. The disastrous economic domino effect known as "Black Autumn" threatens a group of Special Forces vets, their families, and friends, leaving serious doubt that their skills and fortitude will be enough to bridge the deadly gap between modern society and an epoch of American savagery.

    SOTG 792 - Brownells Donates Black Rifles to North Dakota School

    Our friends at Brownells have made a generous donation several black rifles to the School Resource Officer program in Bismark, North Dakota. As you might expect, no everyone is happy about it or thinks it’s a good idea.

    During this week’s SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we continued to focus on the topic of being an armed citizen. We have a genuine question for you; should adult gun owners have to be begged to get training?

    Also, do you recall the Obama-inspired attempt to ban certain types of 5.56mm ammunition? Judicial Watch has been trying to get to the bottom of that scheme. Would you be surprised to hear the ATF has been stonewalling them?

    SOURCES

    From www.huffingtonpost.com:

    One of the nation’s largest gun suppliers has donated nine semi-automatic AR-15 rifles to school resources officers in Bismarck, North Dakota, helping police in the state’s capital fulfill a request for additional firepower to protect students.

    In August, the Bismarck Police Department submitted a budget proposal that included nearly $26,000 to purchase new rifles, gun safes, bulletproof vests and medical kits to treat gunshot wounds. The cost was supposed to be split evenly between the school district and police department, but the county said it wouldn’t pay for the AR-15s themselves, according to The Bismarck Tribune.

    From www.ammoland.com:

    Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), a component of the Department of Justice, for 1,900 pages of records about a proposed reclassification that would effectively ban certain types of AR-15 ammunition as armor-piercing (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-02218)).

    Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the agency failed to respond to a May 14, 2018, FOIA request for the 1,900 documents about the Obama administration’s AR-15 ammo ban efforts. The documents include ATF talking points about the “Armor Piercing Ammunition Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” and other records discussing ammunition classification.

    SOTG 791 - How to Secure a Truck Gun

    What is a “truck gun” and how can we best secure one? That is our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week question today; how to secure a truck gun.

    During our Quiet Time segment from SilencerShop.com, the Professor will consider all of the reading and information gathering that we have done over the years. The question is, now that we have information and intelligence, what are we going to do with it?

    Also, that is a story out of South Carolina that should concern every listener. Does liking firearms and participating in shooting competitions make you a dangerous person? Don’t answer that just yet. Listen Louder.

    SOTG Accur8 Sight Review Section Fixed: www.studentofthegun.com/sights

    From www.wnem.com:

    The Vietnam veteran and disbarred lawyer accused of shooting seven law enforcement officers, killing one, bragged online about his marksmanship and love for the "smell of gunpowder" in the years before the deadly standoff, records and social media posts unearthed Thursday showed.

    Frederick Hopkins lost his law license in the 1980s for mishandling money and faced several minor criminal charges in recent years, including disorderly conduct in 2014. It was around the time of his disbarment that he got serious about amateur target-shooting, according to the records and posts.

    From www.sonnypuzikas.com:

    From humble beginnings of showing off my feeble attempts at “mawashi geri” inspired by scenes from Enter the Dragon at the ripe age of six on the rough playgrounds of Kaunas in the former USSR, to underground basements of communal apartment buildings studying Kiokushinkai, Judo, and boxing.

    From training with what some would call “shady characters” in various methods of violence and service in the armed forces of the USSR. Fighting, martial arts, dealing with and understanding violence… knowing it intimately has been my passion for 40 years.
