2017 has seen a tremendous influx of new firearms and ammunition debuts, and without a doctorate in ballistic coefficients, gunsmithing and backwoods BS, it’s almost impossible to weed out the good from the great. So, we’ve called upon the firearm industry’s most knowledgeable leading experts, Jim and John Scoutten of Shooting USA and Silencer Shop’s own Jeremy Mallette, for guidance in navigating the turbulent waters of concealed carry pistols, holsters, suppressors, self-defense loads, targets and more, as we discuss Next Generation Marksmen. This week’s broadcast of The Revolution with Jim and Trav is presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and MyOutdoorTV.
Jim Scoutten is America’s Most Watched Firearms Reporter and the host of Shooting USA on Outdoor Channel. For the last 25 years, Jim has been reporting on shooting sports, the industry and all the products therein. Tune in to The Revolution this week as he uses his expertise to help listeners choose the right concealed carry gun for them. He’ll discuss the benefits of a revolver, choosing the right caliber, the unique challenges women face, how many shots you need and more. Jim says there isn’t a one size fits all answer when it comes to choosing a concealed carry gun, that the decision is personal and dictated by analyzing your situation and your capabilities. Tune in for more great information.
“Anybody can get involved in shooting, if you have the right equipment,” says John Scoutten of Shooting USA on Outdoor Channel. John joins Jim and Trav this week where they’ll begin with a how-to and what to look for when purchasing used firearms. John encourages buyers to look into used firearms, like police turn in pistols, where great deals can be found on lightly used guns. He’ll then turn his attention to the next generation of up and coming shooters. John will explain how to introduce kids to shooting, demystifying firearms, teaching them firearm safety and being accountable as adults with how we store firearms. Catch this special two-part interview with John Scoutten for great tips on buying and cleaning weapons and fostering the next generation of shooters.
Jeremy Mallette is the Director of Social Media for Silencer Shop. Jeremy tells Jim and Trav that he is getting ready to introduce his 6-year-old to shooting and will be doing so on a .22 rifle with a Bowers USS 22 silencer. Jeremy says that the use of a silencer when teaching kids to shoot can help take the fear or anxiety away. In his case the Bowers USS 22 reduces the sound to about 112 decibels, the equivalent of the sound of a bolt closing. He’ll then explain how the new “Single Shot Trust” from Silencer Shop works. This is an easy NFA trust solution that simplifies the registration process by using one trust per silencer, which eliminates the need for a notary, and only requires your fingerprint and photo. For only $24.95 they can set you up in a matter of minutes. If you aren’t already shooting suppressed you need to tune in and find out why you should be.
