    Guns & Suicide - an uncomfortable conversation.

    Guns & Suicide - an uncomfortable conversation.

    This is a segment of a conversation with the legend that is Mike King. I have had some thoughts about the subject brewing in my head for the best part of a year now and was keen to start talking to some people about the subject.

    Mike King was a logical first choice – his work relates to it, though we (the firearms community) have their own take that needs to be discussed.

    I am hoping to talk to a few other subject matter experts from all sides of the fence on this and create a bit of a mini-documentary – but also looking to include the chats separately as I record them – the intent is to stimulate more discussion about the subject.

    Thanks to Mike for listening to me take a very long time to introduce this subject – as I mention in the video – I have a firearms licence, I have a dealers licence, and I go and see a therapist semi-regularly – I intend to see one more regularly as the year gets underway.

    The point is, if you feel that talking to someone would be beneficial – hopefully way before thoughts of suicide even enter the discussion, then please, do so. It’s a tragedy to think that blokes are not asking for that help until it’s too late.

    Good Blokes - Rusty from Impact Dynamics

    Good Blokes - Rusty from Impact Dynamics

    As is often the case, after you finish the 'official' recording, many great conversations are had. This is the 'after hours' clip from my recent interview with Rusty from Impact Dynamics in Australia.

    The original interview can be found over here – https://precisionshooter.co.nz/rusty-from-impact-dynamics/ – but it really made more sense to have this part of the discussion as part of good blokes.

    We talk about Videography, but soon drift into developing a business, handing off control, growth during the lockdown and much much more.

    The Triggernometry Show - Rusty from Impact Dynamics

    Rusty, Rusty, Rusty. The man behind Impact Dynamics, The Precision Shooting Podcast and much more. It has been a while since I caught up with him - and though an end of the year, state of the nations catchup would be good.

    I have seriously enjoyed watching Rusty and his many projects grow and grow. From the Podcast to the huge amount of video content to the PRS Competitions – Rusty has been working his arse off growing the Precision Shooting community in Australia.

    We have spoken before, and popped up on each others shows once or twice – so I thought it would be a good idea to catch up to discuss how shooting in Australia (and NZ) has been growing over the last year.

    The Triggernometry Show - Thomas Haugland - THLR - The man, the legend, the Norway.

    This one has been a long time coming!

    Thomas Haugland - known as THLR, or simply Norway in NZ - this guy is one of the originators of online content when it comes to long-range shooting.

    If you don't already know his work (you actually, likely do) - then pop over here to check out his youtube channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmKvQfvjqbUakUotekAyxew

    Good Blokes - Mike King's on a mission. We need to get on it with him.

    Good Blokes - Mike King's on a mission. We need to get on it with him.

    We need to be working with kids, parents, people, all of us, to help us ever get to the point where we ever really even need to seriously think about self-harm. It shouldn't even enter our conversation - as we should feel the support, love and self-worth the lets us know we have value on the planet, in whatever way we choose.

    And what a mission it is.

    In my talk with David Benefell, we talked about the necessity of men (and everyone really) to have a mission. It’s really hard to get passionate about anything if you don’t know what it is you want to get passionate about.

    Mike knows what he is passionate about. Helping kids.

    I am happy to simply help do whatever I can to amplify his message.

    In 2020, in Aotearoa 119 young people died by suicide and it is estimated another 3,100 tried to take their own lives. While Government agencies are doing their best, some kids are stuck waiting up to six months to receive the counselling they so urgently need.

    The Triggernometry Show - Andrew - Movie Armourer - Firearms Safety on Set

    The Triggernometry Show - Andrew - Movie Armourer - Firearms Safety on Set

    It would be pretty hard to have missed the recent incident involving firearms on a movie set recently.

    I had Andrew on, a Movie Armourer who has worked on several large sets about firearms safety during filming and in general – because the same principles you apply day-to-day should be used when hunting or when handing or taking a firearm.

    Also discussed:

    Cultural (and legal) differences that potentially lead to the recent event
    Which guns are real, which are fake
    Why CGI likely won’t take over actual firearms soon
    Much more

    The audio is a little crackly for some reason on this one.
