EPISODE-239 BASIC FIREARM SKILLS

Sorry i haven’t had an episode out in a while guys, I had a lot going on around here and i didn’t have time to edit and upload podcasts like i wanted to. The bummer is now i am all caught up and now i am having technical issues with the site and i cant get it to let me upload more than 25% of a podcast.So i didnt want to let you go with out a podcast any longer so i am posting an old episode. This episode is originally episode 31. I know the audio is going to be crappy but like i said i cant upload anything so i cant even re edit the episode and re upload it. Anyway i hope you stick with me till i get this figured out and i hope you enjoy this podcast from my first year of podcasting.

Today i discuss how to inspect a gun when you are buying it and how to sight in a rifle . I discuss what to look for as far as finish of a rifle and things to check when looking over the mechanical parts .If you are ever in doubt a bout a rifle you should always refer to a gunsmith is you are not 100% sure on something .This is meant to be a guide to help you weed out the crappy firearms from the better ones . I also discuss how to sight in a rifle scope without a boresighter, which is becoming a lost art nowadays. I also discuss how to adjust open sights on a rifle .

EPISODE 221 THOUGHTS ON HANDGUNS

Todays episode is on my thoughts on handguns. i talk about some of the guns i personally own or have owned.I think that a handgun is a very important tool for a prepper to have . One of the benefits of owning one is they are easy to carry . If we could only carry a long gun around  there would be less people carrying because it is less convenient. Listen in today for my thoughts on handguns, hope you enjoy todays episode!!

EPISODE-218 WHY DEER HUNT

Well, as i am writing this we are almost into the second day of wisconsin rifle season. This episode was supposed to be out on friday but i had issues uploading the episode. So why deer hunt? I go over some of the reasons why i deer hunt. I also talk about some of the reasons others deer hunt. To me it is a awesome time of the year that i can put everything down for a week and just go out and be by myself, collect my thoughts,and reset my self for the year. now if you listen to my other episodes you know i “rough it ” by no means but i very rarely get the time to hang out with my hunting buddies or just grab my rifle and go take a walk in the woods, that is why i deer hunt. If you want to hear more listen in to todays episode. Also you will notice some of the music is different today. If you want to watch the videos for the music you hear today check out the links below as played on the podcast.

EPISODE-107 COMMONALITY OF CALIBER AND THE AMMO SHORTAGE

Hello everyone.

today’s episode is on the commonality of caliber and the ammo shortage that we are all seeing. so what do i mean about commonality of caliber,  well to me it means a couple of things first it means having multiple guns in one caliber  and second it means owning a gun that is a commonly used caliber . and the second part of the show is my thoughts on the ammo shortage and how we can all help it end a little quicker.
