Behind the Scenes Q&A


It's been a while since we did a Q&A episode, so Isaac fired up his much-throttled Instagram account for a live conversation with real people who asked real questions. This included queries about 3D printers, suppressor laws, customer support, and of course, lots of curiosity about new products.Keep in touch with us here:   
There are a lot of different gun control strategies that have been promoted or attempted over the years. Here are three particularly bad ones, and an explanation of who they are actually bad for.$200 FDM 3D Printer: Ender 3 Pro2018 T.Rex video about 3D printed guns: in touch with us here:   
The internet is buzzing about thermal devices, mostly because of GarandThumb's urban survival video ( Isaac explains a few basics about how thermal works, how to think about, what the key differentiators are between devices, and how to start learning more about them.Keep in touch with us here:

The Importance of Maps


Maps are important. Seems obvious enough. But learning how to read them and use them to do work is the really important part. Current favorite mapping tool: caltopo.comCurrent favorite land nav instructors: redbeardtactical.comCurrent favorite GarandThumb video: in touch with us here:

The entire world has now bravely tweeted out Ukranian flag emojis in noble support, and selflessly poured out Russian vodkas in righteous indignation. The internet's reaction to a tragic war has, for the most part, been predictably laughable. And yet, a lot of these emotional kneejerk reactions could have serious long-term effects... Keep in touch with us here: 
We are far from having a clear picture of the geopolitical wrangling surrounding the Russian Invasion of Ukraine, and the livestreamed video of the conflict doesn't actually clarify things much yet. However, it does provide us with a very interesting picture of citizens, militias, and light infantry pushing back against a hostile force. So, let's talk about the need to have:Guns and AmmoIntel Gathering ToolsIntel Dissemination ToolsAccess DenialTools and Raw MaterialsWater and FoodMedical SuppliesTransport CapabilityShelterMoneyAnd, as promised, some links to the TV shows Servant of the People and Yes Prime Minister.  Keep in touch with us here: 
P.J. O'Rourke was one of the best journalists of the 20th Century; a master of clear, concise, well-structured communication. What better way to honor his memory than a rambling, long, and completely unplanned livestream talking about some of his best work?

Over the last couple of years, there have been a record number of guns purchased by the American public, and a shockingly large percentage of those were purchased by first time gun owners. While we can appreciate those folks being better equipped to physically defend themselves, they may not be ideologically able to defend their right to do so. How can we bring them along to a deeper understanding and appreciation for what the Second Amendment really means? in touch with us here:
This was a big week in the ongoing discussion about the regulation and control of large social media platforms that regularly de-platform their customers that they disagree with.

Ryan Busse spent 25 years at the Kimber firearm company, climbing his way up through sales to become Vice President of the company. Then, he suddenly switched sides to become an advisor to the Giffords gun control group, work on the Biden Presidential campaign, and write this tell-all book about the terrible radicalizing effects of the horrible NRA and fearsome gun industry. Isaac has a few thoughts about it.Keep in touch with us here:

Good stuff! I recently found this quote from former Russian chess master Garry Kasparov--a modern critic of both Russian and American propaganda. I think it flows with what you said about identifying the "what is truth" paradigm instead of merely classifying what categories certain propaganda should be placed in. Kasparov said, "The methodology of fake news isn’t to convince anyone exactly what the truth is, but to make people doubt that the truth exists, or that it can ever be known. People are starting to sense this trend in the free world as well, as Russian disinformation campaigns spread globally and these techniques are adopted. That’s probably why I still see this tweet of mine from December [2016] going around: 'The point of modern propaganda isn't only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.'"
