We cover a lot of ground this week starting with a birthday celebration for our friend Will Hayden from Red Jacket Firearms. If you could fire a cannon to commemorate your birthday, you know you would. Paul discusses whether or not its a good idea to take training with a .22 LR pistol or wait until you have enough centerfire ammunition saved up.
In the hardware department, we’ll consider the Ti-Rant silencer from Advanced Armament Corporation and talk about mounting it to a 9mm carbine versus a pistol. Paul hits the range with an upgraded AK-47 and then looks at three economical and practical Bug Out Bag guns.
