What type of training is good for first gun training? Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week is seeking advice for a new shooter regarding what kind of firearms training is good for a beginner. 

We have a special guest in the studio; Brian Keeney, from Occam Defense Solutions, joins us to bring us up to date about recent AK parts and products from Occam. We also get deep into a discussion about training, upgrades, and AK rifles and pistols. 

Professor Paul has a Knock-Knock Joke for you. Listen closely because this joke just might save your life or the life of someone you love. All that and more on this episode. Be sure that you are listening louder.
