I was on the CCX2 show again and we had an entertaining, and occasionally informational, discussion on current events. We also delve into the ammo shortage, dry fire training, building mindset, carrying a gun while exercising, self-defense during riots, and a lot more. You can check it out here.
This is probably the longest single period of my adult life in which I have not fired a single round. It has been almost six months.

This might be akin to asking “what is the meaning of life?” I have tackled this subject numerous times in my writing in the past.
