This is episode 437 of the Safety Solutions Academy podcast and in today’s episode we will be our  month of content focused on the J-frame revolver. You could think of it as J-frame January if you like.  We have 4 revolver centric podcasts recorded and ready to launch with supporting blog posts and unique video content that is certain to help you learn a thing or two about revolvers.

Last week we spoke to Massad Ayoob on revolvers you can listen to that episode by simply heading to safefysolutionsacademy.com/436 and you can stay on top of all the J-frame content by heading to safefysolutionsacademy.com/jframe

This week we will take our J-frame content in another direction as we talk with Chuck Haggard of Agile Training and Consulting.

Chuck is a career law enforcement officer who retired as a Lt. from the City of Topeka Police Department and resumed his career in LE in a rather unique situation as a LE officer, fire fighter, and air crash rescue at a Kansas airport and it’s surrounding community.

I have had the opportunity to train in and observe Chuck as an instructor in multiple courses both at the Rangemaster Tactical Conference and at Paul-e-Palooza. Several of those classes were classes specifically related to effectively shooting small guns.

Today we are going to talk about fun, interesting and educational topics such as:

  • Sleep deprivation and the problems it can cause in life and in personal safety
  • Revolvers and pocket poppers and why they were so popular
    • Back up guns and why the revolver fits so well in that role
    • Colt Cobras and Detective Specials
  • Revolvers and their reliability and is it really as good as people think?
  • The Advantages of the J-frame when it comes to
    • Concealment
    • Quick draw
  • The best defensive ammunition for short barreled revolvers and what parameters you should be looking at when selecting your ammo
  • And a ton more.
