LUVERNE, AL –-( This week we get to visit with legendary gun maker Bill Wilson of Wilson Combat.

Bill’s shows off his personal, everyday carry pistol and we talk about what features the buyer should demand when they order their own custom M1911 handgun.

In the personal defense realm we’ll consider the value of a tactical flashlight for personal protection and give our recommendations for choosing a quality light and how to best employ it. You should never put yourself in a position where your only choice is empty hands or a gun.

Our friend Evan McNamara from KRISS USA is back with some new Sphinx pistols.  The Sphinx is easily the Ferrari of CZ-style handguns and we have three different models to test fire.  Student of the Gun airs every Sunday, Monday, and Thursday on the Sportsman Channel.  Please check your local service provider for dates and times.
