TFB Behind The Gun Podcast #67: Preaching the Gospel of Red Dot w/ Scott Jedlinski

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to a media event featuring a lot of pistol red dot shooting. The instructor for the event was none other than Scott Jedlinksi of The Modern Samurai Project. Scott and MSP travel around the country to train both civilians and law enforcement in the effective employment and use of pistols equipped with red dots. Scott’s company offers everything from hosted classes for larger groups of people and even has 1 on 1 instruction available for those who want a more customized class. Scott has a lot to say about red dots and shooting handguns and today I got to pick his brain and ask him some questions that those who want to take his classes most frequently ask him. Please sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of TFB’s Behind The Gun podcast featuring Scott “Jedi” Jedlinski!
