Our AR-15 video is Going Viral!

Two weeks ago, we published "Why EVERYONE Needs an AR-15" on Youtube, and it has generated a lot of conversation and commentary. Isaac reads some of those comments, addresses some controversy, and talks about a few important points that didn't actually make it into the video.

Flintlocks & Old-school Skills w/ Ethan Yazel

A couple of weeks ago, we shot a YouTube video about the history of firearms technology, with the help of Ethan Yazel from ilovemuzzleloading.com. The final video is more about freedom, gun control, and the Assault Weapon Ban of 2022 than flintlocks, but it got us a lot more interested in owning and shooting old-school weapons.

This conversation between Isaac and Ethen is a longer deep dive into the world of muzzleloaders, both old and new, and all the folks in the muzzleloading community who are working on developing a lot of more foundational skills.

Why You Need More GPS Devices

As we learn more about all the new satellite and internet communications technologies coming in the future, perhaps we should go back to the humble handheld GPS devices for certain things. This conversation is about GPS devices, mass surveillance, jamming and spoofing tools, and practical land navigation.

The All-New T.Rex Ironside Holster!

We launched a brand-new holster today! Actually, it's a bit of a throw-back to a much earlier T.Rex design, but it's also the result of some of our newest processes, equipment, and strategies. It builds on the tooling we made for Sidecar 2.0, but is also the product

Death and Taxes

Last week, our Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which will reduce the impact of inflation by hiring $80 billion dollars' worth of new IRS agents to squeeze more tax revenue out of the people affected by inflation.hand

State-Level Politics with Grant Henry

With so much attention being focused on Federal laws, the Supreme Court, and the current President's administration, it's easy to forget about local politics. Grant Henry, a private Tennessee lobbyist, comes on the show to talk about why he is very deliberately working at the state level. Even if our national lawmakers weren't out completely out of control, the local level is where the real responsibilities lie.

Complete Weapon Systems with Henry Chan

Isaac has a long conversation with Henry Chan of 9Hole Reviews about understanding weapon systems as a holistic concept, not just as mere individual components. The discussion goes from Henry's experience growing up in Hong Kong to becoming an ordnance officer, the future of 3D printing in army logistics, and the age-old tech race between arms and armor.

HR1808 - Bad Gun Bills Never Die

HR 1808, also known as the "Assault Weapons Ban of 2021" did not become law in 2021. It probably won't become law in 2022. But it will never actually go away... 

Isaac gives quick run-through of what this bill would do, the arguments made for and against it last week, and its eerie similarities to the Assault Weapons ban of 1994.

Putting the "Total" in Totalitarianism

After a heroic Good Samaritan stopped a mass shooter over the weekend, Isaac had some questions. Why are the advocates for big government always so gloomy? Why do they gnash their teeth when individuals do well? Can we squeeze a Bill Waterson joke into a serious look at horrifying tyranny? All these questions and more will be answered.

Common Sense Radio Control

The ongoing demand for gun confiscations, body armor bans, and night vision limits now includes calls for... handheld radio controls! Isaac dissects a recent Slate article lamenting the ability of far-right extremists to use handheld radios to communicate after they have been de-platformed from Twitter.   

Original Article: Far-Right Extremists Are Using Personal Radios to Plan Violence 

To be honest, this only barely scratches the surface of all the preposterous assumptions the article is built on, but hey, it's a start. We specifically ignored the technical errors with this journalism like all the pre-existing SIGINT capabilities that exist, the fact that all spectrum around DC is monitored and recorded by a host of three-letter agencies, the wide proliferation of SDRs, and more - just because that would be an endless list of infinite rabbit trails.

Your Past and Future Gun Rights ft. Fudd Busters

The SCOTUS ruling on NYSRPA v. Bruen has a lot of implications for the future legal battles surrounding gun rights. This weekend Isaac was able to spend some time with Matt Larosiere from Fudd Busters, discussing the ramifications of this decision. It's a pretty wide-ranging conversation on past and current legal theory, but it also gets into what we can expect in the future.

The Tree of Liberty

As Independence Day approaches, we reflect on the Tree of Liberty. It's a pretty long metaphorical exploration, but it goes over the different branches on the Tree, some very recent Supreme Court Rulings, and ways that different trees have in the past been refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants with very different results.

The Unpredictable Backlash against Russia

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...

Practical Lessons from Ukraine

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:

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? Isaac describes what made him stand apart, and what T.REX folks can learn from him.

Starting Conversations about the Second Amendment

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?

Deplatforming Platforms

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. All kinds of kerfuffle related to Spotify, Patreon, and GoFundMe has ensued, and a lot of stuff has happened as a result.

Ryan Busse's "Gunfight" Book Review

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.

The Good Kind of Dangerous

Edward Durr is being called a dangerous man. Why? Because he, a mere truck driver with a miniscule $3,000 war chest, had the audacity to run for state Senate in New Jersey, beating out the entrenched incumbent, a professional politician with immense power, a thirty-year history in Government, and a $300,000 campaign budget.

When he takes office in January, he wants to fight for more gun freedoms and fewer taxes. Isaac talked to him about his reasons, his goals, and the lessons he's learned along the way.
