The title speaks volumes

Not your everyday, “shoot em all and let God sort them out” advice.

Very rational and thought out advice on a HUGE volume of scenarios with the WHY you do this included.

Short sweet, security life hacks .

The Best

I've been listening to these for years and this is hands down the best self defense podcast out there. Alex does an amazing job in describing many common day things and gives great advice how to do them safer, along with a great mix of martial arts and firearms info! I know it's been a while since a new episode was made but hopefully we'll get another soon. Please make more!
