What does it mean to be the gray man? How does being a gray man work as an overall strategy? Paul will consider his previous article about the gray man and whether or not that methodology will help us solve our problems.

We have a new way to look at the old Neighborhood Watch program. How does a traditional neighborhood watch work if the police cannot or will not be coming? Paul and Jarrad discuss the Patriot Fire Team and how that model might be better for community defense. 

Enjoy some exclusive new Student of the Gun music thanks to one of our fans. Also, Zach has a funny story that he wants to share with you all.
