I was in the crowd for the taping of Season 1, Episode 1 of 3 Gun Nation, and I’ve been following the progress of their show for a while. I stopped watching it, however, after the switched to Sportsmans Channel after NBC Sports decided to go full anti-gunner and drop the show from their lineup, and to be honest, I thought the switch from FNH to Armalite was not a sign of growth.
After listening to Chad and Peter talk about the ideas behind switching the format to shorter, more repetitive stages and Regional/National/Pro format, I get it, and not only do I get it, I’m intrigued. They talk about using America Ninja Warrior as a model, live streaming events, Roku channels, bypassing the networks with new media and translating the lingo of the sport into the words of the common man…. all the things I’ve been talking about for years now.
I hope they succeed, and I’m going to go back and watch this season to see how close they are to achieving their goals.
p.s. 3 Gun Nation teamed up with a local conservative radio station for cross promotion. I’ve said before that when it comes to getting out the vote, gun owners are the new evangelicals. In the 80’s, it was the minions of Falwell who were knocking on doors and driving voters to the polls, and today, it’s NRA members. The politicians want something from us, let’s make sure we get something from them in return.
