In 1919 Mossberg manufactured their first gun, a .22 caliber pistol called the ‘Brownie’. Nearly 100 years later, Mossberg has re-entered the handgun conversation with the MC1sc 9mm. Our old friend Linda Powell jumps on to discuss a little bit of history concerning one of America’s oldest family operated businesses

Next, our good friend and DSC Foundation Executive Director Richard Cheatham returns to the studio. We discuss a bunch of topics that recently made national and even international headlines.

What many people fail to realize is that without sport hunting, animals have no value to the inhabitants of 3rd world countries where instances of human/wildlife conflict have never been higher. Take the below image for instance. When Botswana farmers are losing crops to an overpopulation of elephants, well I honestly can’t blame them for protecting their food source.

Also interestingly enough is the flawed idea that you can take the human element out of the equation. Humans are the apex predator and we utilize this earth above all animals. I laugh every time I hear someone say “Well we shouldn’t have invaded their (the wildlife) habitat.”

Richard and I take a realistic look at the issue and discuss the need for modern day solutions rather than pretending the world is just as it was 500 years ago. Other items hit on: Pakistan Markhor Hunt, Frisco Coyote, Delisting Grey Wolves in lower 48, CITIES permits and much more.

Always a pleasure having Richard in studio!
