Hackathorn on Red Dots & Defending your Church | SOTG 1237

4/17/2024
We brought back our friend and expert firearms instructor, Ken Hackathorn, to discuss red dot sights, specifically on handguns. Is a red dot sight on an everyday carry pistol an absolute necessity? What are the pros and cons? During our SOTG Homeroom from SOTGU.com, we will examine the recent attack on a noted bishop in a church in Sydney, Australia. This was the second mass stabbing attack in 48 hours. For our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc. we will consider capped/recessed adjustment knobs versus the external turrets. Which one is the best choice for you? Also, we have another Pro Tip from FrogLube. Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share.

The incident happened on Monday evening at the Christ The Good Shepherd Church in the suburb of Wakeley. At least four people were stabbed but police said none of their injuries were life-threatening. The incident triggered unrest as hundreds gathered outside the church, clashing with police - two of whom were injured. Vehicles were damaged as people threw stones, bricks and bottles and, according to Reuters news agency, police fired pepper spray. Witnesses said the people gathered were demanding for the attacker to be brought outside. Police said they had responded in numbers to the incident and urged the public to keep away from the area.

Islamic Terrorists Drugged to Kill & No More Naked Guns | SOTG 1235

4/3/2024
Once more, we have evidence that Islamic terrorists were drugged up on captagon, the poor man’s cocaine or “chemical courage” when they slaughtered innocent people in a concert hall in Moscow. The primary question you must ask yourself is whether or not you have the skill and mindset to stand between evil and the innocent. During our Tech Talk from EOTech, we will consider a brand new optic in the LPVO arena. EOTech will be releasing the new VUDU X line very soon. Keep an eye out for a video review. Also, for our SOTG Homeroom, we have a tragic incident to report. A young girl lost her life because someone chose not to use a holster and carry a naked gun.

Oh God, Jesus.” In a sit-down interview with News 2, DeAnn Radley made it clear how hard it was to hold back her tears. “Losing her. Losing her. No parent wants to bury their child and this is hard; it is hard and my heart is broken in a million pieces. It’s very hard. I just want to hold my baby,” DeAnn said.

The drug - a favourite of the terror group known as chemical courage - disables fear, allowing its fighters to kill without any unease. Blood tests showed traces of the psychotropic substance, news outlet Baza - which has sources in Russian law enforcement, reports. The drug, known as Captagon pills, was previously used by Hamas brutes before they unleashed their barbaric assault on October 7 in Israel.

Moscow Concert Hall & Shark Attack; YOU are the First Responder | SOTG 1234

3/27/2024
The terrorist attack at the concert hall in Moscow was horrible, but we have to examine it and learn from it. What can American citizens do and how can they prepare to deal with the threats that we are facing? During our SOTG Homeroom, from SOTGU, we will address a deadly shark attack. What could have been done differently? Could the victim have been saved? Whose responsibility is it to be prepared to save a life? Do you need an LPVO on your home defense rifle?

As in all of these situations, initial reports are frequently confused and incorrect in their details, but something known as ISIS-K, based in Afghanistan and Turkey, carried out an assault on Moscow’s Crocus City Hall concert venue apparently killing scores of people and setting the building on fire. The New York Times puts the number of dead at over 60, but a later AP report quotes Russian officials claiming current number 133 dead with many more wounded. Several camouflage-clad gunmen opened fire at a popular concert venue on the outskirts of Moscow on Friday night, killing about 60 people and wounding more than 100, Russian authorities said, making it the deadliest attack in the capital region in more than a decade. Hours after the mayhem began, the Russian national guard said its officers were still looking for the attackers. State media agencies reported that there had been up to five perpetrators. As gunshots boomed through the building containing the concert hall, one of the largest and most popular music venues in the Moscow area, fire erupted in the upper floors of the structure, and the blaze intensified after an explosion, causing the roof to collapse.

Wargaming the American Apocalypse: What Can You Do? | SOTG 1230

2/28/2024
No intellectually honest person can argue that we have allowed the United States of America to be put into a terrible, dangerous position. Hard times are coming. The question we address is what can each person do about that? We will talk about controlling those things that we can control. During our Tech Talk from EOTech, Professor Paul will consider flashlights and weaponlights. What is the difference between Lumen and Candlepower? Does it make a difference?

We are far too reliant on technology that can break down at a moment’s notice. The first cover story for the incident was a solar flare, but that did not stand up to any close scrutiny. Next up was the accidental human error story. AT&T was supposedly conducting a normal, scheduled upgrade and the system collapsed. Oops! In Europe, where Washington, D.C. does not control their media, observers are stating that the AT&T outage has all the signs of a cyberattack. In other words they think the system was hacked. Whether you choose to believe that or not, it’s interesting that within the last two weeks we have been treated to multiple reports where US intelligence services have warned about continuous hacking attempts against our communication grid.

Can you manage the “stunning” recoil of the 5.56mm cartridge? Fear not. During our Brownells Bullet Points segment we will address this first world problem and work together to come up with a solution. Should teachers be dangerous on demand?

It’s a new year and we at Student of the Gun will be moving around the country a good bit.

We examine the Case of the Tacqaria Robbery in Texas. During our Brownells Bullet Points we will discuss the gun build. Are you planning to assemble your own rifle, pistol or shotgun?

If you'll excuse the pun, the man dodged a bullet because Soros-funded Harris County DA Kim Ogg loves herself some criminals. But a grand jury decided not to file charges. You should never hold up a restaurant and steal from the customers. If you're going to hold up a restaurant, you should never use a fake gun. If you're going to hold up a restaurant with a fake gun, only a total nincompoop would do so in Texas. For one knucklehead in January 2023, he learned this lesson the hard way.

Predictions for the New Year & Protect Yourself | SOTG 1222

1/3/2024
What can we reasonably expect from the New Year given the facts and reality of our situation in the United States? Can we force ourselves to have a “good year” with happy thoughts and positive vibes? During our Brownells Bullet Points, we consider the state of the ammo industry and the new “Buy Now” stock price for ammunition. We also will discuss a new shotgun that the professor picked up. Are you prepared to defend yourself? We have one more example of how the state has no interest in protecting you during our weekly SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters.

Living Armed & Dangerous Training | SOTG 1220

12/20/2023
What does Living Armed mean to you? Do you carry a concealed handgun? Do you have a gun for home defense? During our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will consider information that all gun owners need to have. Do the 9mm AR or the 9mm AK have a valid purpose? For our Brownells Bullet Points we consider the state of the ammo industry and whether or not an AR or AK chambered in 9mm makes sense. What is dangerous training or what makes training dangerous? Paul and Jarrad teamed up with Joey and Louis of Tactical Response for a Socratic Seminar to discuss the idea of dangerous training and how we address that subject. Thanks for being a part of SOTG!

On Friday afternoon, the police were alerted to a disturbance in the 1200 block of Indiana Street. The situation escalated when the suspect fled the scene with the female victim, suspected to be taken against her will, as the Borger police were dispatched around 3:40 p.m. A vehicle matching the suspect's description was soon spotted by officers, leading to a pursuit towards Fritch. The chase came to a head near the Hutchison-Potter County line where, according to Police Chief Donnie Davis, the male driver was shot with a firearm found inside the vehicle. Reports from ABC 7 News confirmed that it was the victim who had managed to fire the shot. The suspect, wounded but alive with non-life threatening injuries, was rushed to an Amarillo hospital. The woman, having survived the ordeal, was evaluated at a local hospital. As the investigation unfolds, details such as the suspect's identity and specific charges remain under wraps.
