Avery Skipalis of Skip's Tactical Solutions

David is joined by Mrs. Avery "Skip" Skipalis of Skip's Tactical Solutions, a firearms trainer based in Tampa, Florida.  This discussion covers the gamut of Avery's past and present military career as a firearms instructor and gunsmith, as well as her efforts in the civilian world making firearms a viable and accessible self-defense tool for women and men alike.  We also discuss Avery's recommendations for responsible firearms storage in homes with children, and mentoring children on responsible firearms handling.
