Whether you grew up watching Roy Rogers, Young Guns, or the modern version of the Lone Ranger, Americans have a love for the single-action Western six-gun. During this week’s episode, we take a close look at several guns chambered in .45 Colt and .44 Magnum.
To protect yourself and your family from harm you may need more that a firearm. We’ll spend some time at a salvage yard testing a number of emergency rescue tools with auto-glass breakers to see how they stack up. During a hostile threat situation, a gun is not always appropriate but another use of force option may be. Paul explains the proper use of OC / pepper spray and we conduct live testing.
