The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 24, How to Buy a Gun and What to Expect
Ben Powell, of Bullseye Indoor Range and Gun Shop in Lawrenceville, GA, joins us to talk about how to buy guns and what you can expect.
Ben and I talk about what is involved in purchasing a firearm including Class III, how to go about finding the right gun for you, and safety in the gun shop. We even manage to dispell some myths like the infamous "gun show loophole."
Ever consider purchasing a gun but did not really know what to expect or are you on the fence because you are not sure what you are getting yourself into? Well wonder no more as Ben and I cover the basics and then some here in Episode 24.
On a sidebar note... We have now been doing The Self-Initiative Project Podcast for 2 years officially. Twenty four episodes down with more to come. Thanks to all of you for your support, and be sure to tell all your family and friends about us.

The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 23, Why be Invested in Your Personal Safety
It is more like: Why are you not invested in your own personal safety?
The Secure Dad joins us as we talk about how to get people interested in their own personal safety. Andy and I discuss the things that caused us to first become more invested in our personal safety and how that changed our thinking overall.
We indirectly talk on the subject of why folks should be invested in their own personal safety and that of their loved ones. We even discuss why some feel it is unnecessary to be concerned with it. Most importantly, we talk about ways to begin thinking about it and incorporating ideas and practices into your life.
No one is there to save you; and 911 may or may not get to you on time. What are you going to do? Do you at least have a plan?
Ultimately, we are all responsible for our own personal safety and preparedness.
Sit back. Relax. And listen.

The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 22, How to Build Your Get Home Bag (GHB)
Do you have the gear to help you make it home should a catastrophe of some type occur?
This episode we talk about what you need in order to build an effective Get Home Bag or "GHB."
First-aid/trauma gear, clothing, food, shelter, and water are all the basics needed in such a bag. We discuss specifically what is in my bag and what the intentions are behind having those items, plus more. And you will want to be sure to have one, or at least food and water, for anyone with you should something go sideways.
If you have never thought through scenarios that may force you to get home on your own, within 24 hours, you will want to listen to this episode.
Thanks for listening.

The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 13, The Importance of Mindset
Likely the shortest podcast we will ever do, it is still an important concept to talk about and for you to think about.
Grit. Wherewithal. Perseverance. Indomitable spirit. Never give up.
Your attitude and mindset can make the difference between success and failure. Get it in your head that you will not give up and that you will succeed and you will. Picture success and you'll succeed. Picture failure and you will fail.
In self-defense, mindset can mean the difference between going home safe or getting hurt or even worse.
This episode we discuss the importance of having a no quit, never give up mindset and how that will impact the outcome of anything you take on. Your success and even your life will depend on it.
Short and sweet.
Sit back. Relax. Listen.
