  • Can you tell us about your life & firearms experience leading up to your involvement with Team Smith & Wesson and Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA)?
  • Can you tell us a little bit about what HAVA is?
  • What is it like to be a shooter on a team for the Smith & Wesson company? (I wish I had that opportunity!)
  • What challenges did you encounter and overcome being a shooter who had a disability?
  • Has being active as a shooter helped in other aspects of your life and career?
  • Many people who have a disability can oftentimes focus on what they are “unable” to accomplish due to their disability. What sort of advice would you give those people?
  • What is your gear setup for your shooting sports that you participate in?
  • Do you work with other organizations to promote the shooting sports for disabled individuals?
  • What are your future plans, do you have any upcoming events you would like to share with the listeners?

Obscure Gun of the Week:

Ryan: I would like to see Savage reintroduce the 24F, an over under 20 gauge/.30-30 break-action rifle/shotgun, in a lot more calibers. A 12 gauge/.308 combination would be spectacular!

Trevor: Smaller Pistols chambered in 5.7x28mm
