This episode marks exactly ten years of podcasting for me.  It is bitter sweet as I ponder where I go from here.  I get some help from going back to episode 187 where I got the chance to be on the red carpet in Hollywood with some pro-gun stars at a fundraiser for the City of Hope.  You'll hear my thoughts then which came out in 2007.  You'll hear my conversations with actors Keith David, Ernie Hudson, and Patrick Kilpatrick along with some products from vendors at the event.  There is even a retro ad with the actual voice of the founder of CrossBreed Holsters.

PSA for the http://MarylandShallIssue.org meeting coming in December.

Johnny King introduces me to 3-gun competition.

Michael J. Woodland on rifle slings because I asked him.

BLACK OPS, The Documentary is set to break stereotypes and oust the negative perception of Black males and firearms in America. Can the stereotypes be broken? Can these men bear the weight of an entire Race?
 
BLACK OPS, The Documentary is a film that follows the journey of one Black American, male firearms enthusiast [Aaargo Jay] around the country seeking out other responsible Black gun owners. Throughout the span of less than a calendar year, Aaargo Jay and friends will address and attempt to invalidate the negative images and expel the negative stereotypes of Blacks in America, more specifically, Black males and guns in America.
 
We are doing everything for the documentary in-house as to best provide a "true" and "honest" depection of what the Black gun community is REALLY like.
 
Not only are we making this film for you, we would like to make it with you as well! We always want the people to be a part of the history we make! That's why we need your help.  Please donate and share the link in my profile with someone you think would like to help us send the round that changes the world!

Its St. Patrick’s Day and share some little known information about the Irish, Black folks and America. Over a million Irish immigrants came to North America after the potato famine and were a part of the forming of this country.  They were often the “Poor Whites” that are mentioned in many gun legislations.  They were pitted against African Americans and competing for the bottom rung of the American Dream.  We have more in common than we know.  I talk about St. Patrick.  I give some Trap Shooting basics and introduce a pro-media event for podcasters, you tubers and bloggers a day before the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Sept. 2017 called AmmCon.org  https://www.facebook.com/events/166856987158851
