What happened to Benchmade Knives? Have they always been screwed up or is there something in the Oregon water that makes people stupid? What did Benchmade do and why does it matter to us?

During our Brownell’s Bullet Points segment we will discuss the SBR (short-barrel rifle) and the SBS (short-barreled shotgun). Paul will make the point that both are dead. Tune in and see if you agree.

Also, for our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will once more discuss the idea of being dangerous on demand. For this installment, Paul will consider a couple of excellent choices for EDC pocket knife carry.
