Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-1577- Gun and Hunting Wisdom of our Fathers and was originally fist published on May, 19th, 2015.
The notes below are the original notes from that episode.
I want to talk about guns today, but a bit differently then you might expect from a “survival podcast” to do. No ARs, no concealed carry and no ninja like accessories.
No today I want to tell you about the gun wisdom I learned at the hands of my grandfather and father as a young man. The stories, lessons and realities that made me love guns as the tools they truly are.
You may be shocked to learn I didn’t grow up hearing much about the 2nd amendment or gun rights. Where I grew up boys hunted squirrels with pellet guns for the table until they hit 12, at that time they could get a hunting license and were handed a 22 or a old single shot Sears brand 20 gauge and told to bring back more now that they had a better gun.
The concept that anyone would ever seek to take a gun away from a man who had never harmed a person with it, was so foreign as to not even be discussed. While there is a lesson in that alone, we shall save it for another day. Today I want to take you back to the 1980s in a small town with only two main roads, called RD1 and you guessed it RD2. The town is Jonestown, the boy is still called John, the squirrels are fat, the deer are plentiful and the year is 1986.
