There are more new gun owners than ever running around these days and while many of them are being trained by their friends and family, there are probably still many people out there who are in serious need of basic firearms instruction as well as navigating their own path through firearms ownership. Smith & Wesson released their GUNSMARTS Series a little less than a year ago and the show is hosted by my good friend Ken Scott. Smith & Wesson and crew are back with GUNSMARTS Series 2 which includes slightly more complex subject matter like how to join a gun range, firearms familiarization, gunshop etiquette and even dispelling some myths of gun ownership.

GUNSMARTS Series 2 Launched by Smith & Wesson for Firearms Education
SPRINGFIELD, Mass., (June 1, 2021) – Smith & Wesson today announced that it has expanded its GUNSMARTS video series with over thirty new educational videos for both new and experienced firearms owners. Hosted by industry experts Ken Scott, Julie Golob, and Jerry Miculek, Smith & Wesson’s GUNSMARTS Series 2 covers a comprehensive set of topics that include firearms education, shooting tips, gear recommendations, and more – all in a simple, inviting manner.
Matt Spafford, Senior Marketing Manager, said, “We received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback after the launch of GUNSMARTS in 2020, and as such, we’ve developed GUNSMARTS Series 2. This new content series provides new, exciting videos to help both new and experienced gun owners improve their firearm knowledge and skillset. We hope that GUNSMARTS Series 2 encourages firearms owners to get outside, enjoy the shooting sports, and brush up on their skills.”
New GUNSMARTS Series 2 content is hosted on YouTube and will be released weekly throughout the summer, starting on June 1st. To watch Smith & Wesson’s GUNSMARTS Series 2, click here.
I think these slightly more advanced subjects are ones that a lot of newer gun owners are probably concerned about but are probably too afraid to work out on their own. I particularly like the episode covering about what to expect when going into a gun store for the first time. Other hosts like Julie Golob, have great videos on Forming a Relationship with your firearm in order to foster more confidence in your gun handling abilities. If you’re curious at all about any of these subjects or know someone who would benefit from this free educational material, be sure to send them a link to GUNSMARTS Series 2.
