Do you carry a gun on the water? Should you be armed on the water? One man and his wife are glad that he made the decision to be dangerous on demand while boating. We will consider the details during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters.

Should you Duracoat your everyday carry gun? What are the benefits and are there any downsides to putting a custom finish on a fighting gun? Also, during Brownells Bullet Point, we discuss an economical and easy way to upgrade your old aluminum AR magazines.

Are you worried about BATF memos and proposed new gun control bills? Remember, gun control is not about guns, it is about CONTROL. The criminals in Washington DC are setting up the greatest scheme to control you in the history of the nation. What is CBDC and why should you oppose it with every fiber of your being?

Charges will not be filed against a South Carolina man who fatally shot a Jet Skier he initially tried to rescue, prosecutors said.

Two Jet Skiers, a man and a woman, fell into Lake Keowee in Salem, South Carolina, on Tuesday and were rescued by another man and a woman on a pontoon boat, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office said a news release.

Officials have not released the identities of the couple on the boat or the woman in the water. The dead Jet Skier is Nathan Drew Morgan, officials said in a statement.
