Louisiana- ( – 

The Self Defense Gun Stories Podcast brings you real news of armed civilians who protected themselves and the people they love.   We report and analyze each self-defense incident with a firearms instructor.  Episode 20 features firearms instructor Ben Branam.

Were these gun owners lucky.. or were they trained and well prepared?  How does your training compare to theirs?  Listen each week and find out.  Each episode is only 15 minutes long.

This week, all three gun owners survived the incident without injury.. because they had a gun.

  • First story-  Walking in the park with your girlfriend in the middle of the day.  There are people all around.  Then you’re attacked by a man with a knife.
  • Second story-  Four thugs crossed the street to attack a man on his way home.  These robbers were armed, but so was the intended victim.
  • Third story-  Two teenagers attacked this man as he walked to his car on the north-west side of Chicago.  The victim shot one and both of the robbers ran.

Each episode is available to stream live.. or for download.  You can also download the podcast to your phone from iTunes and Stitcher.  Put us in your pocket each week.
