Most all of us have had the “my first gun” moment in our lives. Some you may be going through the “my first gun” decision process right now. During our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, Professor Paul considers the entry-level gun and how to encourage people, not discourage them.

For our Brownells Bullet Point segment, Paul and Jarrad will take a look at innovation versus imitation. Which one of these ideas is more important? Or, do both imitation and innovation have merit, depending on the situation? 

Scott Hambrick of Online Great Books is back for part two of the Ideas of Liberty segment. Paul, Jarrad, and Scott continue their conversation. You never know what topics will come up when these three get together.
