…I Was But The Learner; Now I Am The Master (Podcast – Season 4, Ballistic Radio Episode 187, November 27th, 2016)

“The reality is [deescalation] is actually smart. Once you get older and you’ve been in a few scraps you realize there’s a price to pay. Even if you’re the winner you still pay a price on a lot of levels.” — Paul Sharp


Paul Sharp of Sharp Defense joins tonight’s show to talk about the evolution of those who are looking to carry a firearm for self-defense.

Sharp talks about the best place to start, where (and when) people should start thinking about gear and then the progression of learning and finding instructors who are going to help you meet your goals within the context of your daily life. Paul also takes on the experienced trainees with some hard-taught lessons about putting aside the ego and learning to be a better student.

If you’re new to shooting and ever wondered where you should start, and how you should proceed, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
