And, for you gun-folks out there, make sure you are taking new shooters under your wing and showing them the way. If you'd like some resources for new shooters, check out Gun 101 - Guns for Beginners.
    Ryan has been getting lots of questions about whether people should get concealed carry insurance and if they should which ccw insurance is best. Whether you want to get CCW insurance is your choice, however, if you'd like some insight on the matter from an actual firearm attorney, check out his new best concealed carry insurance guide

    98 - Guess Who's Back!

    From Ryan Cleckner: "I missed you all! I'm finally back and hoping to get this things going again - you can help encourage this by spreading the word about the podcast to friends.
    I'm considering this podcast turning into my general gun related podcast and starting a new podcast just for teaching and keeping Trigger Words for gun law stuff.
    Like that idea? Let me know!"

Great information and easy to connect with!

I started listening to this podcast about 2 weeks ago and I made it through every episode! Ryan is very knowledgeable but not in a n“ I’m smarter than you” kind of way. I love listening to him and Jason talk about guns and shooting I have learned a lot just from that. If you are wanting to learn about long range shooting or guns in general this is a great place to do that!

Keep up the good work guys!

You don’t have to shoot to like this podcast

This podcast has become one of my favorites. I don’t listen to radio anymore because of shows like these. Ryan is a wealth of knowledge, tells the best stories and is a natural teacher. He takes the time to break down to the essentials and simplifies complex concepts. He seems to love teaching and instructing others and I believe it’s a calling for him. Cousin Jason makes the show what it is. He’s a regular guy. He asks all the questions that myself and many others want to know, and provides great input regarding his experiences shooting. The two of them make a great podcast team. I can spend hours at a time listening to them BS about anything. Great show!

Best gun industry pod cast going.

Always entertaining and always learning something. Even when he gets sidetracked.
