Be prepared to defend yourself, no one is coming to save you. We don’t know how much clearer we can make that statement.  During our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters we examine how one West Virginia mom stopped a convicted felon from potentially murdering dozens of people. 

During our Duracoat Finished Firearm segment, Professor Paul asks for your suggestions to refinish the VP12 AK shotgun. We have a Brownells Bullet Points feature and we will discuss the semi-automatic shotgun and how to get the most out of one.
