Do you believe that Alec Baldwin did not pull the trigger? Can a Single-Action revolver just “go off” on its own when someone is holding it? We will discuss that with our special guest, Marty, host of Talking Lead radio. 

We have a hot and cold discussion during our Duracoat Firearms Finish segment. Also, during our Brownells Bullet Points, we will consider the importance of getting out and testing the gear you just bought. 

Lastly, there was yet another mountain lion attack in California. What is worse, the big cat attacked a 5 year old boy and has not been killed. As a matter of fact, the authorities have given up looking for the predator.

Disclaimer: We apologize for Marty’s audio quality during this episode. Sounded alright during recording.

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share.

Enjoy the show! And remember…
You’re a Beginner Once, a Student For Life!

Several members of the ‘Rust’ cast and crew may be called to testify against Alec Baldwin as he faces involuntary manslaughter charges.

Baldwin and Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed were formally charged last week for the death of Halyna Hutchins on the low-budget Western’s New Mexico set in October 2021.

Prosecutors allege Baldwin shot the gun that killed Hutchins while Gutierrez-Reed didn’t check the gun given to the hot shot actor before it was handed to him.
