Trigger Talk Tuesday - September 19th, 2023

"Recapping the Middleway Volunteer Fire Company's Gun Bash and Firearms Training"

Trigger Talk Tuesday, September 19th, 2023, brought a dynamic discussion about firearms, gun bashes, and training for firearm owners.

The Gun Bash Experience:

The episode began with a lively discussion about the Middleway Volunteer Fire Company's recent gun bash. Richie from Green Monster Firearms and Cam, a trainer from Shadow Hawk Defense, shared insights about this fundraising event.

  • Gun bashes are fun events often organized for fundraising purposes. They feature raffles where attendees can win firearms.

  • The number of firearms offered at these events can vary, with some organizations offering multiple guns, including shotguns, rifles, handguns, and even accessories like suppressors.

  • Attendees purchase tickets, and drawings are held at regular intervals to determine winners.

  • Tip jars are a common feature, where participants have the chance to win cash prizes and firearms.

Importance of Training:

Cam emphasized the importance of training for firearm owners, especially those new to the world of guns. He highlighted that being a responsible firearm owner involves more than just acquiring a gun.

  • Firearm owners should seek professional training to understand how to safely handle and use their weapons.

  • Shadow Hawk Defense offers a range of courses, including close-quarter battle (CQB) training, which is particularly valuable for home defense.

  • Responsible gun ownership involves knowing how to use your firearm effectively and safely, especially in high-stress situations.

Competitive Shooting:

Cam also shared his journey into competitive shooting, highlighting how a chance invitation led him into this world.

  • Competitive shooting involves precision, quick thinking, and mastering various aspects of firearm use.

  • Cam stressed the importance of gradual progress and safety in competitive shooting training.
