Gun ownership is such a polarizing subject. And, with the increasing gun ownership in America combined with the tension and friction we’ve seen between people, it’s only going to become more so. That said, gun ownership is a fundamental right protected by the United States Constitution but that does not absolve us of the responsibility we, as gun owners, have to be safe and make ourselves proficient with our firearms.
Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL, Jeff Gonzales to talk about both our rights and responsibilities as gun owners. We also cover recommendations for new firearms owners, how much time needs to be dedicated towards training (including training without having access to a range), why the beginners’ mindset will help you become a more proficient gun owner, and metrics for improving your accuracy and effectiveness should you need to use your firearm.
“You have to respect the lethality of the weapon. It’s like any other power tool. If not used correctly, it can cause injury or death.” Tweet That— Jeff Gonzales
Gentlemen, my guest today is former Navy SEAL and firearms expert, Jeff Gonzales.
Jeff is one of the most qualified men I know to talk on the subject of responsible gun ownership. Not only is he a decorated and respected SEAL operator, but he is also the president of Trident Concepts, LLC, and is a member of the NRA’s Training and Education Committee.
Over the past few years, he’s put a heavy emphasis on concealed carry and has used his years of combat experience and tactical instruction to help law enforcement, military, and armed citizens become more capable and effective of defending themselves and others with firearms.
“You never want to be lucky in a gunfight. You want to be good.” Tweet That— Jeff Gonzales

Gents, today we’ve been talking about making yourself more battle-ready with the use of firearms and while that is one critical component of protecting yourself and others, there is another equally demanding battle – the one with your mind.
After teaching men for years the systems and skills they need to know to thrive, I’ve come to the conclusion that many men simply don’t have a plan for life. In other words, they’re not even mentally prepared for the battle.
That’s where the 30 Days to Battle Ready program comes in. In this free 30 day course, I’m going to equip you with the exact strategy I’ve created over years of research, testing, and real-world application for maximizing your readiness for whatever life has to throw at you and thrive in the face of it.
If you’re ready to dive in and do more self-work over the next 30 days than you potentially have your entire life, join the 30 Days to Battle Ready program and get started immediately.
