Is arms control a new idea? Do we need arms control due to the existence of the AR-15? To listen some people, gun control began with the invention of the AR. Once more, Professor Paul will dispel the rumors and lies surrounding arms control.

During our Brownell’s Bullet Points we’ll take the time to consider gas control and what that means for riflemen. Times have changed. We don’t need to settle for 40 year old technology when it comes to controlling the gas from our muzzle.

Also, for our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holster, Professor Paul and Jarrad discuss alternatives to carrying a firearm. We consider “allowed” versus “able” as well as where you can go to get detailed information about alternatives to a gun.

Introducing the SpitFire™, a Revolutionary New Modular muzzle brake by Radical Firearms. The SpitFire? is CNC machined using the highest quality materials available and is made in the USA! The body is CNC machined from Billet 4150V Chromoly BAR stock.

The SpitFire? comes with two interchangeable heads: one a krink style brake that redirects the noise, blast, and concussion forward away from the shooter down range. The other head, The Fireball also redirects the noise, blast and concussion forward but creates a fireball of a flash to astound Hephaestus himself!
