Theresa Inacker
Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners
The DC Project

 

Theresa Inacker has done some cool things...I mean besides coming Riding Shotgun! She hunts pheasants.  She hangs out with Dick Heller. And she puts CNN”s Chris Cuomo in his place.  And it’s all in a day’s work for her. 

 

I was heading down to New Jersey for a couple of other interviews and reached out to Theresa and she agreed to ...

Judi Wells
A Girl & A Gun 
The DC Project

Judi Wells is more than just an “accidental activist”.  She’s an unexpected gun owner, too. She’s a vegetarian, does yoga, and doesn’t like killing spiders, let alone other animals. Go down the checklist of everything you’d expect as an anti-gunner and that’s her, too. Growing up in Canada and California, no one in her family liked shooting or went hunting. ...

Gabby Cannons
A Girl & A Gun Connecticut

One of the great things about having a show like mine is the referrals.  I ask my 2A friends about potential passengers and they’ll reach out to their contacts and let their friends know I may be calling.  That’s what happened with Gabby Cannons. I was concerned about getting out of New England during the summer, so Robyn Sandoval (RSWC #080) from A Girl &am...

|John  Petrolino
Author/Writer
Decoding Firearms
Ammoland



John Petrolino “relentlessly harassed’ me (his words, not mine) about having Mark Shean on the show. With some experience in writing and publishing, John was helping Mark turn his blog into a book.  Then John wrote his own book about firearms for new gun owners. He’s also been writing for Ammoland as well.  After spending some time with John, I...

Sarah Albrecht

Hold My Guns

 

Sarah, her husband, I and I hung out at a SHOT show event in January and we got along really well.  When I saw that there was a machine gun shoot in Pennsylvania, I looked her up and not only was she close to the shoot, she was going to it as well!  So we got her on the stagecoach.

 

Sarah started a nonprofit organization called Hold My Guns.  Hold My Guns is working wi...

Patrick Collins

 

I met Patrick at the Gun Rights Policy Conference 2019 in Phoenix. He saw that I was doing a Southern Tour this summer and said if I was in Atlanta I should get in touch. After a change in my plans, I reached out and told him I could pick him up at the Atlanta airport and drive him home from a quick weekend trip he took. 

 

We start off with something that happened to Patrick that ...

Teddy Daniels
Decorated Combat Veteran
Business Entrepreneur
Retired Police Officer
US Congressional Candidate

 

Teddy Daniels was hanging out with Stephen Willeford at the Rod of Iron Freedom Festival. I was talking to Stephen and asked if he’d come Riding Shotgun. He said only if Teddy had the time. Then he suggested that I should get Teddy in the car because he was the “real G.I. Joe!”  When I asked Te...

Brian & Shelley Hill

The Complete Combatant

 

I met Shelley Hill at Gun Rights Policy Conference in Chicago in 2018. We were both presenters at AMMcon (Alternative Multi Media Conference) and GPRC that year. I was excited to make a stop outside of Atlanta on the Summer Tour 2020 to have Brian & Shelley on the stagecoach. 

 

Brian has a background in martial arts and got into firearms after a...

Stephen Willeford

 

Last month, I was at the Rod of Iron Freedom Festival in Greeley, PA, and was able to get some time with one of the featured speakers, Stephen Willeford. We’ve all heard the story about what happened on November 5. 2017 at a church in Sutherland Springs, TX. Mr Willeford was the good guy with a gun who heard the gunshots, grabbed a handful of ammo and his AR 15 and headed to con...

Beth Alcazar
Pacifiers & Peacemakers

USCCA
The DC Project

 

I met Beth Alcazar at SHOT Show 2017. The following month, I saw her again at a concealed carry fashion show I was emceeing in Cleveland.  And I’ve seen her at every GPRC since 2017 and even in Washington DC at a DC Project event. That isn’t just how she’s everywhere.  She writes a blog for the USCCA called Pacifiers & Peacemakers, an...

Claude Werner

Tactical Professor

 

Claude Werner brings his airsoft MP5 Zombie Eraser Z71 Edition. We had some time to hangout a little before we started filming at the home of Shelley & Brian Hill before the show. What I really like about Claude is that he likes to ‘stir the pot’ a bit..  And I noticed that when I spotted the SCCY handgun in his waistband. He did tell me that he pushes what oth...

Brad Premo

CEO, Leadslingers Whiskey

 

When I heard about Leadslingers Whiskey on Armed American Radio, I decided to find some.  I drove an hour to get a bottle.  I loved it.  Then I decided that I would message Brad Premo, CEO of Leadslingers and a regular contributor to AAR, and inquired about getting some of their hand sanitizer to use during the summer tour while the virus that shall not be named was going on. Within...

Mark Walters

Armed American Radio

 

Part of the Southern Tour 2020 brought me to the Atlanta area. Of course, I had to reach out to Mark Walters from Armed American Radio.  Mark is the reason that I was brought into the 2A Activist fold. I interviewed him in Minneapolis in August 2016 and he loved the idea of driving passengers around as we talk about gun issues with gun people.  He asked if I wante...

Boge Quinn

GunBlast

 

I set up a quick 2020 Southern Tour this summer and I reached out to Boge Quinn.  He watched a few RSWCs and agreed to be on the show. I drove from Nashville to Dover, TN, to meet up with Boge. I never met his brother Jeff, but if Jeff was anything like Boge, he was a hell of a guy! Hearing Boge talk about his brother, you can tell they’ve got an incredible family and relations...

Stephanie Schafer
A Girl & A Gun
The DC Project

 

Stephanie Schafer is from “basically Wyoming” Nebraska. We met in DC in July 2019 at a DC Project event.  It was funny when we started talking and she said I sound just like I do on YouTube! Hehe!  She’s also a facilitator with A Girl & A Gun (AG&AG), teaching women about gun safety, the fundamentals of shooting, and about their Rights as Ame...

(Adult Language Warning: There are a couple offensive words used in this episode. The words were used as a quote from someone who isn’t on the show.  The words used are offensive to the speaker and the host, but they were used to make a point). This is also an extra long episode, so you need to dedicate time to watch it.

Robyn Sandoval

A Girl & A Gun

 

Robyn Sandoval and I have been running into each other at several of the 2A events around the country.   Last year, we filmed a show in Phoenix at the Gun Rights Policy Conference, but we didn’t put that interview out. I was able to interview a few of the instructors with A Girl & A Gun in between classes they were taking at SIG Academy in Epping, New Hamps...

Ronnie Siegel is with A Girl & A Gun (AGAG).  Some of the AGAG instructors were taking a class in Epping, New Hampshire,at the SIG Academy. This was like a “bonus” interview. Robyn Sandoval, one of the founders of AGAG, said she wanted to have Ronnie in my passenger’s seat.  It was like a bonus interview!

It was sometime in 2018 when I met LaKasha. She was modeling for the Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) Concealed Carry Fashion Show. I was the emcee. We were running into each other at 2A events put on by GOAL, The DC Project (DCP), and even trap shooting locally. Finally after about a year and a half of telling h...

Dawn Hillyer

Hiding Hilda

 

Dawn and I were both models at the concealed carry fashion show at Gun Rights Policy Conference (GRPC) in Chicago, 2018. I was modeling a holster undershirt.  I’m sure she was modeling one of her own products made by her company, Hiding Hilda. I told her that I wanted to do a show in every state and secretly she wanted to be my Indiana passenger. We made it happen in Fort...
