I love it when a plan comes together

I love it when a plan comes together

The leader of the old TV sitcom, The A Team,  the character Hannibal used to say that he 

“loves when a plan comes together.”  

I learned early that podcasting helps the podcaster speak better.  I needed it.  I have written seven books but have to be conscious of my diction, delivery and vocabulary when speaking publicly.
I wasn’t alone.  I passed on my quietness to my son.  A lifestyle martial artist who is as kind as he is fit.  I wanted him to be better than I so I inspired him to create a podcast about his passions.  
Of course he scoffed.  Of course he wasn’t sure.  He trusted me.  And I have been podcasting since 2007 and he has seen and heard me learn the craft, struggle with a smile and overcome even when he thought I had it all together.  I know I didn’t.  
The original Hannibal was a great leader that went against the Romans.  He was bold and hyperbolic. He is one of my heroes.  Hannibal was a Tunisian who commanded Carthage’s main army against Rome during the Second Punic War.  I channel that energy when I need to.  I created WarriorCast for my son.  I thought it was a great name.  I snagged the URL and held on to it even when he quit on me.  I am glad I did.  He is jamming now.
He just hit his 51st  episode this week, alone.  Did you know we tried it before? 

Third time is a charm.

The first time it was the two of us.  The second time it was with his best friends.  For a brief moment it was just me as I pushed through.  Refusing to let it go.
Now I just produce it.  I am editing it less.  Now I let him hear some of his “ummms,” and sounds so that he will correct it himself.  I mentor him on the stuff I’ve learned from attending podcasting conferences and roundtables.  Slowly though.  Nobody likes a no it all.  And it is always harder to influence someone that lived with you.  Strangers adopt wisdom faster.  
On episode 51, he got a college mate of his to produce a theme song for him that I chopped up to make it podcast ready.  He got a chance to interview one of his heroes of YouTube fame, Sean Fagan from The May Thai Guy, live from Thailand.

Also on this episode:


  1. Floyd Mayweather to be full time trainer
  2. Marcos Maidana wears Mayweather tooth in his chain Instagram live training
  3. UFC returns in May


Podcasting and coaching my son has paid off.  I love it when a plan comes together.

How Does It Feel to Be Right?

How Does It Feel to Be Right?

The Coronavirus has made it obvious that gun owners were not crazy. We were right to prepare for emergencies. You can see the foolishness of our neighbors now. The panic is as real as the pandemic. People are hoarding stuff they can’t eat, or use.

Gun stores are doing good still. They are still making a profit. Non gun owners are finding out what we already knew about gun laws, waiting periods and common sense. You were right. You bought your arms and ammo before the government shut it down. Before the price gouging. Before the toilet paper flew off the shelves. How does it feel now to be right?

Now what do you do.

Be vigilant that is what. You can’t eat ammo but make sure you have adequate stores of basics so that you can make meals too. Be operationally aware so you don’t tell folks what you have online (anymore than you already have). Some of us have shared too much. You know who you are. Be smarter.

Take the time to explain to your family the next steps. They may listen now. Turn off those celebrities that are easy on the eyes but bad for your soul. Take the time to reconnect, refocus and refresh.

What’s new

I’ve been working on the passion project I call Game Changers. I’v’e met too many good men going through the same trials as I have and I want to help as many as listen to do better.
Supporting Men. Fatherhood. Family.

This new podcast is for real men, sharing stories, wisdom and laughs as we talk about the joys and pains of fatherhood and life in general. I’m still talking about guns and the Second Amendment. My focus is on supporting our families and helping you remember why we fight and who we are fighting for. We aren’t making excuses or asking for permission.

I love being a dad. It’s made me a better man. I believe that being a dad is one of the most rewarding aspects of a man’s life.

“When you know better, you can do better.”

I am still using the Patreon.com/blackmanwithagun for sponsorship. If you can, please.

In a world of players, why not be a game changer?

Having Children in 2020

Having Children in 2020

Check out this episode!


The chances of having a child increase when a man and woman have sexual intercourse. Previous personal history, health, age or economic status often doesn’t matter.  If sperm fertilizes egg, there is a good chance a baby will be produced.  We are created for procreation. Most of the men I know didn’t know what kind of father they would be.  Some want a lot of kids.  Some want only one.  Some wonder if they will be good enough.  Some wonder if they can afford it.   It is a common thought to not have children in this day in age.  It has always crazy.  It has always been bad.  It is always a turbulent time.  Kids are born anyway every day. That is the way of the world.

Ready or not.   Aside from any of that, what do you do after they arrive.  it doesn’t matter if you are married or not for the biology to occur.  Your social status, ethnicity, race, or age doesn’t matter as it relates to if it will happen.  What do you do after the baby is born?  You have to adjust.  You have to adapt.  You have to change your plans.  Children are a game changer.   Marriage, which, when done right really helps you raise a good child is not in vogue, not popular and not understood.  Do you realize how easier it is to raise a healthy, happy child in a loving home, with shared values, incomes, and goals?  Do you realize how great it is not to struggle mentally, physically and spiritually as some do?  Marriage is not the answer for everyone but it is not what folks are doing these days that we call marriage either.   Marriage is not the magic pill.

You must be mature. You must be close to the same page.  You must communicate.  You must want to grow.   And on top of it all there are people that use children to live.  They use welfare like a career path.  They have them so they will be supported financially by the state or you for the rest of their lives. There are those that think all they want is the child they don’t want you.  They like your genes.  You are reduced to being a sperm donor.  You’ll make a pretty baby, they think.    One of the truly crazy things in today’s culture is that crazy behavior is supported.  You will find groups and organizations that promote and give advice to behavior that is detrimental to a child.     But let’s say, no matter what your situation is, you are father.  How do you become a dad?  In my humble opinion, you have to change your priorities.  You have shown love.  And before I lose you, if I haven’t already, I’m talking about sacrificial love.  The love that takes over your life so that you would give your life for your child. You child didn’t ask to be here.  It can be raised by the state.  It can be raised in brothel, crack house, or the streets.  The only reason and the only way your child will make it is if you protect it, love it, nurture it, teach it, feed it, all of that.    OK lets back up.

 The kid has been born, the mother is a psycho chick with a nice body.  it was a one night stand, or a repeat offense cause it was that good, she is not someone you thought would be a good mother but… or she belongs to another, was married, separated and … there are a million scenarios   if you don’t have children right now, and you are listening, allow me to help you understand the importance of contraception, the importance of abstinence, the case for waiting, the case for being smarter than your penis, deciding not to take the hot chick to bed immediately as if her expiration date was fast approaching.   the case for marriage, the case for planning because the alternative is to be a single father, dealing with a woman that doesn’t want anything to do with you except your child support.

Another child getting lost in the system, thinking her father doesn’t love her.  thinking all men must be like that guy….   But my guest this week, is a humble guy, a good man I met at work.  He just recently became a father, since I’ve known him and from the outside looking in, is doing damn good at it.  His name is Gardner Douglas. He is an Army vet.  He is an entrepreneur and a podcaster.  And he is the second guest on Kenn Blanchard’s’ Game Changers Podcast.
