9mm Shortage and Understand the Universal Firearms Safety Rules | SOTG 973

What are the Universal Firearms Safety Rules? From where did they come? Why are new gun owners so confused about “gun safety rules”? This is an important discussion for new shooters and experienced ones.

Can’t find 9mm pistol ammo? During our Brownells Bullet Points, Professor Paul has some advice regarding the current 9x19mm ammunition shortage and how to get the most from your range time.

Also, we have a SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters. Have you seen the new Chest Rig from Crossbreed? We produced a video about how to safely and effectively draw from a chest rig and Paul will point out the retention features of the new holster system.

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:
