Empty Brass is honored to welcome back the CEO of Trex-arms Luckas Botkin. There is no question that Lucas is a polarizing figure within the gun industry, but despite his biggest critics he has always been committed to doing the right thing based on his convictions. 2020 has been a wild ride for all of us, and we asked Lucas to find out how the lock down and riots impacted things at Trex-arms, as well as what they had done to prepare for incidents like these before hand. Lucas has always been an advocate of civilians owning basic kit, including a helmet, plate carrier, and night vision (if affordable) which has been heavily criticized by some for "larping'. Its fair to say that during the summer when every major city as well as smaller ones were rioting and burning the need for this basic kit became clear. Lucas stood by this position, and in our opinion was vindicated over the summer, and Lucas shares his opinion on what it was like to be right in an overwhelming way. Lucas continues to lead through these quickly changing times, and it was our pleasure to have him as guest for a second time. Please click the links below to follow all he and Trex-arms having coming.
