Colt Manufacturing, the 175 year old American gun maker will be sold to CZG, Ceska Zbrojovka Group, parent company of CZ-USA. How and why did this happen? Is this a good thing for the American gun buyer? We will examine the recent history of Colt in detail.

Magazine-Mania! During our Brownells Bullet Point segment we will once more look at magazines and the state of the industry. What is still available, what is going fast, and what is gone? 

Also, we have an SOTG Homeroom for you from CrossBreed Holsters. Two recent incidents contain lessons for American gun carriers. A deputy was attacked on a Saturday morning by a manic and a wannabe YouTube star pulled a knife on a man lawfully carrying a concealed handgun. What went down? We’ll discuss it.
