    How To Make Money with Guns | Episode 14

    How To Make Money with Guns | Episode 14

    It’s been a month since the last episode and I want to give you an update and some personal information about myself so that you know what is going on.  
     
    How to make money with guns 
    The title may be a little on the click bait type side of things but I am going to share actually some things I have seen or tried and see if you know of someone that has done it too.  There is nothing new under the sun and maybe you can do a better job at it.
     
    I want to really thank the people that have followed this show for more than a decade and those that support it through monthly donations through https://patreon.com/blackmanwithagun  I know its not the best platform for supporting a show but you have been faithful and it helps me.
    I also want to thank you for supporting me personally through my recent  struggle and even those that have donated through GoFundme.  My wife will freak out when she finds out we had a campaign but despite my reservations, it was a Godsend.  That first bill in February could have taken me out.  
     
    If you want to contribute to the family gofundme thing for my wife. 
    https://gofund.me/a098f55b   I am paying $400 a day for her right now.
     
    This week I shared that I am going through depression.  It is only temporary.  I am learning and working through it. I created a new YouTube channel to help people called http://spoonsays.com  
     
    I'm here to let you know that you matter. 
     
    I heard that one person can change your life. I don't know if I'm that one for you but together we can make a difference. There is a lot going on right now and sometimes one person gets lost in the noise. I have protected people all my life. I'm an veteran of many groups that experience depression, trauma and loss on a regular basis; military, law enforcement, and clergy.  I’d appreciate it if you’d help me make Spoon a thing.
     
    I started a new YouTube channel for Spoon.  Will you help me reach my first 100 subscribers? 
    https://youtu.be/46H4BnLymh8
     
    Here’s the national hotline for suicide prevention 1-800-273-8255 for the record, if you need it.  
     
     
    Again, thanks.  I appreciate you more than you know.  Working on getting back to full strength.  Those that know the words of prayer, throw one up for me will ya?

    Prior Proper Planning Pays Off  
    Saving money in the shooting sports Update on my wife:  https://youtu.be/gcNlD7EVmZs
    Not A Sermon  
     
    Unless you are wealthy, recreationally shooting is expensive.  The firearm can cost $400-$4500.  Range time for indoor ranges is $15-25 an hour.  Ammunition, targets, and safety equipment vary. If you are on a budget, good with your money or want to save a few dollars here are some tips that will help you do that.  This will be the first in a series, I will provide for you from time to time.  You don’t like blowing money do you? 
    Firearms, pistols in particular are almost impulse buys.  They are advertised by movies, screen heroes and the cool kids wherever they are these days.   
     
    Range fees have stayed the same for the most part but there are so many new shooters now that it is now unheard of to have an hour wait to use an indoor range.  Believe it or not, that wasn’t the case just a few years ago. 
     
    Ammunition increased during the Trump years and hasn’t returned to normal.  Your gun food is important.  Back in the day, when firearm tolerances varied and you had to get gunsmiths to “work” out the rough edges and give love to a handgun just so that it was consistent, ammunition was crucial.  Not all guns worked well with all the brands and grades of ammunition available.  It is a little less the case now although you will find out that with practice, there is some ammo that works best for you.  Different loads, bullet weights, etc. in your firearm do different things when you are behind it.  You won’t know that from the box or necessarily from the recommendation from your shooting partner. 
    Depending on your shooting schedule, goals, type of firearm, I suggest you buy your ammo in bulk. I’m talking about 1000 rounds of practice ammo.  And 100 rounds of self-defense stuff.   
    At the onset, 1000 rounds seems like a lot but if you are shooting a semi-auto handgun that has a ten round magazine because you live in one of THOSE states like I do. And you have three magazine that’s 30 rounds.  They sell the good stuff at 25 rds a box typically so you might pay $21-49.00 a box of 25.  
    Practice ammo- seller & ballot, Winchester, magtech, blazer, Remington, federal  
     
    Ear Pro, eye pro and targets,  
    Invest in a range bag  
    an Emergency Personal Injury Kit (EPIK)  a rapid-application tourniquet.  eye and ear protection.  a notebook and pen (for recording your rounds fired and perhaps notes on your training and performance)  a cloth for wiping down your firearm and magazines after training.   
    If you get tired, learn to rest, not quit.Success if being able to continue just one more time after failing or falling.As crappy as things are for you right now, they will be the good old days for your kids, nieces and nephews.Somebody.
     
    This is a little update on the situation.  If you have been following me for the past ten months you know that my wife had a brain tumor removed that incapacitated her. The family has been devastated. 
    Last Friday, after recovering from being bedridden, and having pneumonia (twice), two blood clots, and fungal meningitis, she had surgery to relieve pressure in her brain.  God clicked the switch and she is talking again. 
     
    She’s almost 100% back mentally.  She wants to eat and was able to swallow water.  It’s amazing and so God!   
    Make sure you have health benefits. Get long term care insurance. Have someone that will advocate for you if you can’t speak.   Visit the sick. Believe and worship God. He is worthy!
    Thank you for your prayers and friendship.
