TGC 050 - What makes a gun channel good?

Tonight on The Gun Collective podcast, Jon Patton dives into a topic that is near and dear to his heart. The topic of What makes a gun channel good? I don’t specifically mean youtube or any one platform.
When I say gun channel, I mean outlet. So, with that in mind, I’m gonna need some help as per usual to wade through this topic and tonight I am joined by some guys that have a vested interest in this very topic.

Joining us we have Johnny Bragg, then, the man behind High Caliber History, Logan Metesh is here with us, and last but not least, the man behind the Firearms Radio Network, Shawn Herrin!

Huge thank you to TGC Patreon supporters for making tonight’s show possible. We would love to have you on board at the $5 dollar per month level because not only do you get all the behind the scenes shenanigans but you are also automatically thrown into the gun of the month club where we give away at least one gun a month to our awesome supporters!
