The Student of the Crew was on the road again this week and visited our friends at Red Jacket Firearms in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We were given a behind the scenes tour of the RJF manufacturing facility and a first look at some interesting products coming from Baton Rouge’s premier gun maker.

Our Student of the Week wanted to know how to best deal with an aggressive or menacing dog.  Paul’s answer is two words: Pepper Spray. That topic leads us directly into our discussion of the Trayvon Martin Felonious Assault Trial and the lessons learned.  Every dedicated Student of the Gun needs to take a moment ponder the lessons offered by the attack on George Zimmerman in Florida.

You are a beginner once, but you should be a student for life.
