We were LIVE from NRA Show, hosted a plethora of classes, and had tons of fantastic guests on the show, and we’ve got the sweetest smelling firearm lubricant, FrobLube, back on the team with us! 2023 has been a fantastic year for SOTG, with some great moments.

Join us for this Best Of compilation, where we take you through various moments from this year. Including recounting a woman in Florida fighting off an attacker in a public gym, lessons learned from one of our SOTGU Martial Application of the Pistol classes, and of course, chicken husbandry.

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! And we will see you again in 2024.

If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:

Enjoy the show! And remember…
You’re a Beginner Once, a Student For Life!
