Down Range Radio #245: Year 2011 and Gun Culture 2.0

Share This:

Co-hosts Mike Seeklander and Michael Janich are handling tough scenarios in the new season of The Best Defense.

Michael talks about the new seasons and episodes of Shooting Gallery and The Best Defense. It is also time to look back at the year 2011 and what we call Gun Culture 2.0 including the mini-9mm handguns. We have been through some tough economical times, but our gun culture seems to stay strong through it all. This culture also includes a growing interest for training.

    Michael- Good stuff this week.

    When you were discussing the rise of Gun Culture 2.0 and the numbers of firearms being purchased you mentioned that 9mm Sub-frame size is going strong (true, as is .380 still) but you;d hate top be a mfg of bolt action long guns….

    Well I know that it’s usually restricted to being a regional thing, but here at my store, not only did we sell out of AR/Modern Sporting Rifles before Christmas, but we sold nearly 90% of all out Bolt Actions in the typical brands and calibers…. 25/06,30/06, .223 thru .308….. I couldn’t get them fast enough from my distributor and the manufacturers either…… sales are GOOD across the spectrum !

    Not sure how you missed the super-important point that the NRA codified its 3 (not 10!) safety rules back in the 90’s. The NRA, not Gunsite, has trained and certified over 80,000 instructors, who are teaching those 3 (not 4, not 10) gun safety rules in all the NRA certified courses. It’s not 1975 any more. Jeff Cooper was a great man, but his rules are not as widely used, nor as logically constructed as the current simple 3 NRA rules. With all the great things you do for the gun community, it would be great if you could get on board with the 3 NRA rules, since the overwhelming majority of firearms instructors in the country are using them.

    I compare and contrast Cooper’s 4 rules with the NRA 3 rules here
