Silent Night: .22LR Edition

One of my personal goals in the firearms world is to promote the safe, responsible use of firearms. The Musical Targets system has been a fun product which has allowed me to do so. Even folks who may not be a big fan of firearms have a hard time not liking what they see and hear when watching a gun play music.

Written in 1818, Silent Night has been heard all around the world. It was first played in Austria, and the song was sung by Americans and Germans on the front line during World War I during the “ Christmas truce.”

While violence is often associated with firearms, they can also provide peace and security. Silent Night is a song about peace, amongst many other things, and hopefully bringing firearms and music together is a way for more people to understand that millions of law abiding firearms owners sincerely want peace in our world. As TFB readers know, most guns are never used for violence. Each of us can play a powerful role in showing the peaceful side of guns.

I hope everyone’s getting ready for a wonderful holiday break with family and friends. I really enjoyed filming “Silent Night” on the Musical Targets system, Volquartsen rifle, Leupold scope, and Winchester ammo. It’s been my steadfast combo for all of my music videos.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
