Dark Continent Calibers with Derrick Ratliff
Have you ever hunted outside of the U.S.? Many hunters overestimate what kind of caliber they will need to hunt in Africa, often thinking that the Dark Continent requires a canon regardless of what game they are pursuing. However, more isn’t necessarily better. Derrick Ratliff, president and founder of Horizon Firearms, joins The Revolution this week to talk hunting abroad, how to decide what is enough gun for the exotic species you’ll be pursuing, realistic calibers for dangerous game, traveling with firearms and ammunition, being properly prepared with the gear you need before leaving the U.S. and so much more.
Ultimate Adventure: Don Mann on “The Brigade – Race to the Hudson”
“I just loved every one of the challenges “The Brigade” brought with it. It was one of the best outdoor experiences of my life.” – Don Mann
Some serious adventure is about to hit Outdoor Channel! “The Brigade – Race to the Hudson” is an all-new show, premiering April 22 at 8:00 pm ET, where 10 contestants have 28 days to travel 750 miles across the York Factory Express. Are you intrigued yet, I know we are! The 10-member team has to push themselves to the extreme, together, to conquer this grueling cross-country wilderness expedition. If they succeed, a $500,000 grand prize will await them. This 750-mile journey follows the York Factory Express, an historic fur trade route and they’ll be doing it the same way the old timers did – on foot and in boats. No fuel, no GPS, all they have is their collective skill set to survive, navigate and hopefully get across the finish line. This is an adventure of a lifetime and Don Mann, contestant on “The Brigade”, will join us to talk about it.
Avoiding Life-Threatening Situations with Sticky Holsters
As of 2017 there were roughly 324,000,000 citizens in the United States and only 620,000 full-time law enforcement officers/agents. If you crunch those numbers they equate to roughly 1 officer for every 484 people. God Bless the men and women who work in law enforcement to keep this country safe on a daily basis, however there just aren’t enough officers to prevent every instance of crime. That’s why everyday carry is so important, it gives we the people the ability to protect ourselves when police can’t intervene first.
Eric Rice is the Operations and Sales Manager for Sticky Holsters. He joins us this week to talk everyday carry, selecting a caliber that’s right for you, being proficient with your weapon, how to pick a comfortable holster, carry positions, and much more.
