What is wrong with steel-cased .223 ammunition? Why did my instructor tell me not to bring it to his training class? During our Brownell’s Bullet Points, Professor Paul will address the pros and cons of using steel-cased .223 and other ammunition for training and fighting.

Also, during our SOTG Homeroom from CrossBreed Holsters, we will share a short story with you, a parable if you will. The Professor will tell you the tale of The Monk and the Mountain. Then we will consider the lesson of the story.

What is Ammo Swap Saturday? Do you remember during the Obama ammo crisis when SOTG created ammo sway Saturday? The idea is just as valid, if not more so, than it was five or six years ago.
