Thanks to the Meet The Presser gents, Klint & Matt, for the use of their Vegas rental car!

Attending a SHOT Show 2020 gathering is where I met Mike Ox.  He’s an instructor, author, and creator of the Dry Fire Training Cards. The Dry Fire Training Cards would be GREAT to have while the country is working through the virus of March 2020.

Brian Harris

Live Free Or Die Guys

 

In August 2015, Brian took a course from me to get his Utah & MA permits.  A month later, he was arguing with a woman he was dating. He took his clothes and headed out. After a verbal argument, she called the police. His girlfriend didn’t even know that he had a gun in his trunk. 

 

They called Brian and asked him to come downstairs. Four police officers gree...

Meet The Pressers 

 

One of my passengers said I needed to get Klint in the car. After some messaging, we decided that I’d be on Meet The Pressers and they would be on RSWC.  Since we were all heading to SHOT Show 2020, this is where we filmed this show. The Meet The Pressers gents were kind enough to let me use their rental car for the show!

I got a message last summer from an FB friend in New Jersey, John Petrolino, who said he just finished editing a book of gun laws from an instructor in Massachusetts.  He sent me Mark Shean’s info and we had a nice quick conversation. I read Mark’s book before we set up the interview.

Michael Sondini

Walk The Talk America

 

You never know what is going to happen or who you’re going to meet at the Gun Rights Policy Conference.  This year, Kerry Slone from We The Female (RSWC #55) approached me and said “You HAVE to have Michael Sodini from WTTA!”  An exchange of info and a few text messages and it’s a done deal. 

 

Michael Sodini had family that worked in the gun industry for 3 ge...

Tomasz Stepien

 

Tomasz Stepien answered the call when I was looking for passengers at Gun Rights Policy Conference in Phoenix. I was excited to have my first international passenger in the stagecoach. This was quite an education for me and I hope it is for you as well.

Last year at GRPC in Chicago is where I met Kevin Dixie.  He asked right away when I was coming to St Louis to do a show with him.

Rob Pincus
Instructor, Author, Activist

 

When I started Riding Shotgun, I had no idea what it could turn in to or the journey it would be. I do remember thinking of the names in the firearm industry that I knew of, and Rob Pincus was one of the people I imagined having on the stagecoach. It’s a great honor to have him in the passenger seat. 

 

During the past year or so, I posted some interviews with...

Lara Smith
National Spokesperson of the Liberal Gun Club

I met Lara at GRPC in Chicago in 2018. When I was looking for interviewees this year, she jumped at the chance.

Lara Smith grew up anti-gun. She grew up in a well educated, liberal household. But she makes sure that she isn’t labeled as a Democrat. She was nervous and scared about firearms. After being married to a former Marine who often told her she was wrong abou...

Gina Roberts

I’ve been running into Gina Roberts for the last few years. I’ve seen her at the Gun Rights Policy Conference, at Heller10, and at the DC Project events. She’s been asking for awhile when is she going to be able to get in the stagecoach for a show. And finally at GPRC in Phoenix, we were able to make it happen.

Let’s get this out of the way. Gina is a transgender woman. And she’s now co...
