Episode 364  Beautiful Women and Their Thoughts

March is Women’s History Month and I wanted to start the month off showing my love and appeciation to the women in the shooting sports that I have had the honor of being around. Many have been on this podcast.  I am blessed.

One of the things that I always wondered was how they felt when one of us (men) got a little carried away with a comment or conversation. I wanted to have some women in this space, share their thoughts on how they felt being in the shooting sports and maybe meeting or hearing something inappropriate. The goal is to sensitize the fellas.

Realizing that I am no saint. I learned a few things about sex and selling. Shout out to Barbara of Womens Outdoor News and these fine women of the sport that agreed to come on the show this week.
if you want to make a B Movie, make a Tarantino movie, you put in naked women, and guns. Does sex sell?

Researchers found seeing an attractive man or woman in an advert excites the areas of the brain that make us buy on impulse, bypassing the sections which control rational thought.

In fact, what a visual hint of sex will accomplish, a visual barrage of sex can destroy.

 

Question of the Week:

In this testosterone laden sport, we men, occasionally say stupid stuff to you (women). Some creep you out. How do you feel about it? How do you deal with it? When is it too much? What would you tell the guys listening or reading if they wanted to do better and not be “Sketchy Jeff”?

Pam gave this comment about how she felt.

When I get compliments on occasion I just say thank you and keep it moving. When it becomes creepy it’s when the male either keeps staring at you, starts to follow you, or says something totally inappropriate. Especially where I work there are a lot of sketchy people walking around, so I just smile politely and grasp my pepper spray a little harder in my pocket. If a dude is interested in a young lady, please please guys don’t comment on her body parts, her attire (we’re already self- conscious as it is) just say hi. That’s a great ice breaker. Or if you spot her in the local gun range or ammo shop please don’t say wow that’s a big barrel you got there, while looking at her rack. Smh that’ll get you a seriously dirty look and maybe a kick in your junk. Lol My ex (baby daddy) brought me a different variation of roses every day at my job to let me know that he was digging me. I was scared to go into the office sometimes because I didn’t know what floral arrangement would be all over my desk. lol But it was a sweet gesture. And that’s what some men, not all, don’t seem to get any more, women whether they’ll admit to it or not still want to be chased and wooed. And I believe that is partly our fault especially these young chickies, are twerking and what not all over the place. They/us make it too easy for the guys; they no longer feel that they don’t have to put the work in. Ahh fellas? You do, even when you get married, from what I hear from my folks. (Married 65 yrs. strong) I hope that helps. Boy did you open up the flood gates with this topic, can’t wait to hear this podcast/article.

Random factoid:  The Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution prohibits any United States citizen from being denied the right to vote on the basis of sex. It was ratified on August 18, 1920.  Women didn’t get the right to vote until then.

333 – Best Shot

Best Shot on blackmanwithagun.com

August 2, 2013 | Posted in black man with a gun podcast | By

Interesting People on the Black Man With A Gun Show: Heart & Soul this week include:

  1. Daryl Jamison of GO GunOwner.com.
  2. Tom From Trijicon.com talks about what they have for AR’s
  3. Tommy from CenterMassCombatTactics.com goes technical for the intermediate shooter and talks about the controversial issue of the height over bore on a M-4 type rifle.

Understanding line of sight vs line of trajectory.

You have to know where you weapon system shoots for precision circumstances. Shooters must understand that the height that your sights in relationship to your bore will change the impact of your shots at different distances. You should know where your rifle will hit at all distances regardless of what the optics say.

See their site for the carbine class coming in August.

Barbara Baird shares what the National Sport Shooting Foundation reports about new shooters.

 Our GunRightsMagazine.com blog gained two new writers this week.

Daniel Shaw is having a Handgun Vitals course in Utah in August. Check out Paratus Academy.com for details.

 Best Shot

This week in my journey to build a better Kenn Blanchard, I went to a guy I know that has been in the gun business longer than I have. More over, he is on the front lines defending both the right to keep and bear arms and the business of it. His gun store is near Washington, DC and borders, Prince Georges County, Maryland. He is in defense 24/7. I have known him since I was able to buy a firearm.

He owns Realco Guns, in District Heights, MD. Every Monday afternoon, there is a crazy group of protesters that picket his store every week. They are nuts but they are there religiously. The shop is blamed for ALL the guns used in crime in the Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia area. Pretty incredible isn’t it? The way our anti-rights politicians are, don’t you think they would have closed this shop down and arrested the owners if they had proof of wrong doing? Right. So instead they allow this group to unlawfully protest without a permit, and use the people in the community to try to out them by social means.

While I was there asking for his opinion on how to survive in business a man walked in wearing flannel pajamas and bedroom shoes. He was carrying a berretta over and under shotgun in a case that he wanted to sell. It was a beautiful gun but it was missing the fore-end (forestock). He didn’t seem to notice. I listened as he told the story of how his father hunted with this shotgun and he found it in the attic after his father died. He told us how his father took him hunting when he was a boy. This man was about 60 years old. There were an assortment of chokes and some old shells in the case as well but this was no hunting shotgun.

I watched the owner respectfully explain what he had, and the importance the furniture on the matching fore-end was important before someone would want it. He declined his offer and told the man to have a nice day. Pajamas not withstanding, this man was lying. This is the kind of stuff you can’t make up. I have seen this guy and his staff thwart straw purchase attempts every time I come in there. They masterfully, respectfully, turn out people that try to usurpt the law. I don’t think shops in Virginia have the skill or have the problems this guy does.

The pajama guy had a $1500 shotgun minus the fore-end.
But back to the reason I went to talk to my friend.

He told me that I needed to use the 80/20 rule in business. He said 80 percent of your outcomes come from 20 percent of my inputs. He thought what I do was tough because I have to deal with the hearts and minds of people and I said touché..

I think actually for me its more 99/1 ratio.

I did some research and learned that the 80/20 principle:

…was suggested by management thinker Joseph M. Juran. It was named after the Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed that 80% of income in Italy was received by 20% of the Italian population. The assumption is that most of the results in any situation are determined by a small number of causes.

What I didn’t say first is that preparing to go out and talk to gun ranges and gun shops in my area to pitch them to support me and advertise with me freaked me out. I had an anxiety attack. I had plans to make this list of potential sponsors I knew and ride around knocking on doors telling them that they had the opportunity to have an radio personality advertise their shop and range every week on my show in the Washington DC market on traditional radio. It took me a minute to get right.

I preach from a pulpit but my throat was dry. I have taken teams into hostile environments with less numbers than a rifle squad but this terrified me. Selling myself and this concept kicked my butt. I took some deep breaths, prayed and decided to go to a couple of friends first. One such “friend” was too busy to talk to me, which kind of hurt my feelings, but fortunately for me, the first one I talked to gave me a heads up. Maybe I was one of those people he thought that was going to waste his time. Maybe he was applying the 80/20 rule.

And so, I put out a email to my list and asked, “if you are my real friend, please respond.” I know some sign up for list just not to be excluded. Some might have liked me once but after listening to my podcast or reading my blog decided, they didn’t. I am looking for my 1%.

My podcast is art to me. It is a portion of my life. It’s not perfect. I try new things, sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. Folks have the opportunity to glimpse into my journey through it and most of the time it’s the road less traveled.

Speaking of 99/1. I got one response chiding me on a joke I don’t remember and my cigar smoking references. I get it. Nobody’s perfect.

If you make the 1% of the people that get me, understand me, you’ll be the ones I invite to the BBQ. You’ll be the ones I visit. If you got the email, please respond. I’ll be putting you on a new list. You’ll be going in my phone book, my holiday card list, my VIP list. You’re the ones I am talking to on this show and I love you.

I am giving it my best shot.

 

We have given only one life.

Give your best shot.

There’s no cuts, replays or pauses.

Do whatever you think is right and worth living for.

Forget About It

Aaargo Jay

July 12, 2013 | Posted in Urban Shooter Podcast | By

Urban Shooter Podcast Episode # 330

In this episode I’ll share three interviews with men that have inspired me in different ways to push on. Raymond Kohout is the CEO of a revolutionary new handgun called the Double Tap Defensive Pistol.  I was alerted that my trademarked name was being used by a guy on YouTube. I reached out to him and found that he is cool.  He is another black man with a gun.  He’s Aaargo Jay.  (pictured below)  And finally, I talked to a former Marine and CEO of MedfordKnife.com, Greg Medford, that took me back, and had me laughing like I used to when I was around good guys.

This week I got hints at my focus for the future. I want to be like the Oprah of the gun world. It will probably not be on TV now that I have a face for radio but I am ok with it. I’m going to be pursuing getting my own show somewhere in the near future on traditional radio. If you know of anyone, program directors, etc, hook your brother up. I think I have something to say.

I got this new insight with a little help from my friends. You guys give me hope.

In the News: Illinois finally gets a chance and a choice with concealed carry.

Smoked the best cigar ever but I don’t know the name of it. Will get it for you and share it next week.

Aaargo Jay is a YouTuber that came across my screen using my trademarked name, Black Man With A Gun, ForgetAboutIt. He is a part of a new channel and website called Young Guns TV.
