Today’s interview is brought to you by 4Patriots.com The pandemic put a spotlight on how fragile our food chain can be when put to the test. Keith and I have found that 4 patriots is a great way to supplement your food stores with inexpensive and tasty food that can last up to 25 years. The folks at 4Patriots set up a special page for our listeners at 4Patriots.com/GUNEXPERIMENT10 so they can get weekly discounts and deals, but act quickly because the deals will change each week.

I. Interview

Today’s guest competed for the US National Pistol Shooting Team, as well as an NRA Intercollegiate National Pistol Shooting Team for Notre Dame, where she qualified for the 2000 Olympic trials. She has since gone on to compete in the Tactical games where she has reached the podium 10 out of 12 times; please welcome Tes Salb to the show.

IV. Outro

I invited Tes on the show because I really wanted to give listeners that are looking for a challenge an insider look at the Tactical Games. I feel like the games are daunting, but much less so after talking to Tes.
