David, Mark and Dennis interview special guest and self-defense trainer Ian Strimbeck of Runenation LLC.  In this episode we talk about picking  the right handgun for carry, how every situation isn't always a problem for guns, what it means to be a multi-disciplinary tactician, and why you should seek to learn a variety of life-saving skills as an armed citizen.

Ian not only shares a ton of knowledge with us, but also answers several listener questions! 

Also in this episode: Mark tells us about the time he and a co-worker took some training and got into a fight with knives inside of a car and destroyed it, and David calls out gun-counter jockeys who foist ridiculously incompatible handguns off on first-time buyers. 

We even talk momentarily about color-filling the engraving on your handgun slide just to make sure we alienate everyone possible!
