Biloxi, Mississippi (Ammoland) How can we train so as to minimize the chance of shooting people that should not be shot? Does your training program teach you to think before you pull the trigger or are you practicing to shoot reflexively? During part one of this week’s show we discuss that very thing.  We’ll also address the East Coast/West Coast gun control rivalry, who wins and who loses?

During part two of the show, Paul and Jarrad talk about putting your money where your convictions are. Should gun people willingly give money to anti-gun businesses? We have more drone or UAV news, but this time it’s not what you might think. When you defend your home against an attacker should you be punished? That is what happened to two Washington State college students.
