During this episode of SOTG we take a close look and some interesting hardware both old and new. We’ll take a close look at the most sought after pump-action 12 gauge shotgun in the world; the Kel-Tec KSG12. In the import category we examine the VZ-2008 7.62×39 rifle available from Century Arms.

If you want to maintain your skill and stay sharp you need to practice regularly. Paul will lead us through a couple of drills including how to master the four-step drawstroke as well as single handed shooting. When it comes to being prepared for emergencies we need more than just a gun. We review a number of emergency belt cutters as rescue tools and look at the wildly popular survival braclets.
