Student of the Gun Radio will air episode 1000 on Monday, November 2, 2020. This achievement comes eight years into the life of the program. To commemorate the occasion, SOTG will host special guest interviews with Charlie Brown of MKS Supply and Jeff Hoffman of Black Hills Ammunition. 

“We wanted to reach out to our friends in the firearms and ammunition businesses and have a serious discussion about where we were, where we are, and just as importantly, what the future holds for the industry,” said Paul Markel, host and founder of Student of the Gun.


We would not have made it as far as we have without the help of our fine partners, such as; DuraCoat, CrossBreed Holsters, Brownells, Night Fision, Black Hills Ammo, and of course our loyal community of fans. Thank you all so much.

A family business, Paul is joined by Jarrad Markel, his oldest son, and co-host. Zach Markel, Paul’s youngest son, produces the show and distributes it worldwide every week.
