Published on Aug 26, 2018
An encore appearance with the Mauser C96. Yes, Mr Dean was still alive when we recorded this video. Unfortunately, as with most WWII vets, he's passed on now. We thank them ALL for our freedom, and we owe it to THEM, and ourselves, to quit allowing it to slip away bit by bit.

Bud Interview

Published on Nov 4, 2018
A chat with Bud Wells, the founder of Bud's Gun shop. Bud sold the business a few years ago, but he's had an interesting life in the gun business, starting Bud's from scratch and building it to what it is today. Bud is not in good health, so we were glad he was willing to cross the border into Tennessee in order to chat with us! :-)

Shooting and discussing the new Glock Model 45.
To clarify and correct myself, even thought he Glock 17, and maybe some others (not sure), was simply Glock's 17th patent, generally, Glocks just come out in sequential model numbers. When it's time for the Glock 57, it won't matter what the caliber is; it will simply be the next Glock and will be a Model 57. :-)
