…and goodbye to an old friend. This week Michael talks about the BATFE’s move against Polymer80, makers of 80% receivers, and their attempt at the redefinition of what is and is not a firearm. Michael also says goodbye to SHOOTING GALLERY, which ends its broadcast run in 2021 after 21 seasons.

It bittersweet to know that the last of your tv shows, Shooting Gallery will be delivering its final season soon.
I have watched it from the beginning and followed as you created more excellent programming.
As I saw those programs start to be canceled, I was hoping it would not happen to Shooting Gallery. Congratulations on 21 great seasons.
I enjoy both of your weekly shows, the podcast and triggered. I look forward to where you will take us with them next year.
I hope you have a great holiday!
Thanks for all the shows!
Michael: Under this assumption, if I have an AR15 & a file,
I then have a machine gun. Food for thought!!!!!!
Great podcast, Michael. These are trying times. Thank you for spelling it out so clearly. I’ve come to many of the same conclusions, and I see this coming at the same time that many of the urban areas — in DemocRAT-controlled cities, in DemocRAT-controlled states — are coming apart at the seams, with exponential growth in violent and property crime, defunded police, and unemployed residents. The combination of the ChiCom Virus and an attemped Marxist takeover seem to be just what the “elites” want. All these troubles aren’t a bug; they’re a feature.
Thank you so much for your contribution to our present gun culture. I see you as one of the founders of what we have today, and we must fight if we want to keep it. Thanks again.
As usual with everything you write about, talk about & produce on film, you hit the nail on the head! You are always on the cutting edge with your timely and relevant subject matter especially so in the crazy times we have been living in this past decade.
You are one of the most knowledgeable, gifted, skilled, multifaceted and humorous guys I have ever known! You have a great perspective on everything and I appreciate all that you do from the bottom of my heart! Lastly I’m honored to call you friend!
Proud to be in your last season Michael, you’re an Icon Sir!

Don’t be fooled by Biden intending to put Buttigieg in as nominee for Secretary of Transportation. If he is approved, moving to head of ATF is a lesser position and he could switch to that ATF position without re-approval. Be ready to fight his nomination in any position with a write in campaign.
