HGN: Welcome to Practically Tactical! This is our LIVE show streaming to you from the Earth Realm created by the Elder Gods!  This week’s show theme is the movie MORTAL COMBAT - READY FIGHT!

Our first special guest of the evening is Jeff Bloovman. He is known for his firearm instructions based out of Philly, his amazing hair that is made out of real ghost and a metal that came from the outer world, and his finishing move is taking a high point .45 and then unloading it and beating you to death with it.

WA: The other special guest we have on the show is Sam Cummins from RangeTime with Cory and Erika. Sam is known being the good looking one on the channel, dual welding sigmas during training classes, and his finish move involves bring you to Indiana to freeze to death. FATALITY!

 HGN: This weeks show we will be talking about MS Clean Kit, Raven Concealment Pocket Clip,  HSGI M3T.

WA: For the new listeners, Practically Tactical is a show about guns, gear, and shooting, where each week we feature a special guest or two and usually a guest co-host.

HGN: Lets start by introducing myself. I run a YouTube channel and Facebook page, both called handgunnewbie. My parents abandoned me at an arcade when I was younger and I taught myself self defense through countless hours of playing mortal combat! As usual, I am joined by my co-host Matt. Hows it going Matt?

WA: Hey Everyone I’m Matt from the WalkerArmory...I am your lovely co-host for this fine evening...I also run a gun youtube channel at the WalkerArmory as well as a facebook page. Also, in 2005 I was runner up in the world championship Mortal Kombat showdown but was later disqualified when I tested positive for drinking an excessive amount of red bull of which the judges say gave me an unfair edge in hitting rapid special moves.
