Kyle Lamb, former SFOD-D Sergeant Major, founder of Viking Tactics, and friend, sits down with Ryan to talk about how they met, some of their adventures together, knife making, and what he thinks it takes to be sucsessful as an entreprenuer.
Tactical Office Lady (AKA Anna Miller) started working at American Precision Arms one year ago knowing almost nothing about precision shooting. She is learning how to shoot and picking up on all of the lingo. She is a wife, a mother, and grew up the youngest of three girls. She grew up around musicals, dance recitals, lots of soccer, and needless to say - she is completely out of her element.
Ryan sits down with Chris Way of RifleKraft.com and The Straight Dope podcast.
Ryan sits down ith Dave Rhoden of Flagrant Beard to get the backstory on his beard (and his company's namesake), to see what he's working on with Vertx, and to shop-talk about shooting pistols.
Ryan returns (maybe) to update listeners on life, SHOT Show 2022, and the new 30 Super Carry round.
Amid the Coronavirus panic, we have seen RECORD firearms sales across the country. In fact, one of the most popular articles on Gun University is How To Buy A Gun Online.

From Ryan Cleckner: "I missed you all! I'm finally back and hoping to get this things going again - you can help encourage this by spreading the word about the podcast to friends.

Ryan and the crew from the Colorado elk hunting trip start off a multi-part podcast series about their adventures. This is only the first part - the audio ends abruptly and will pick up with Part 2. Apologies, however, you all have been asking for a podcast and I could do it now without time for editing. :) The discussion gets deep later on and it may be a bit hard to follow with all of the hunters on the trip and on the podcast. I hope that you can follow along. Ryan has many projects g...
