Are homeless people harmless? Many people might think that these “poor” people are just “down on their luck”. Reality dictates that is not necessarily the case. We have not one, but two recent incidents to discuss during our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters.

During our Brownells Bullet Points, we will consider some critical or at least important gear choices that you should consider before attending a firearms training course. 

Also, we will continue with our debrief and after-action from John Farnam’s Urban Rifle training course. We have student graduates in the studio with us to tell us what lessons they learned. 

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:

You’re a Beginner Once, a Student For Life!
