This week I was able to talk with Kevin Dixie owner of No Other Choice Firearms Training LLC. I first found out about Kevin through a podcast I was listening to that he was a guest on. As I listened to that podcast I heard a gentleman explaining that we are members of a community first and the gun owner is just a part of who we are as a part of that community. He explained that we needed to present ourselves and who we are and quit trying to force the conversation about guns. I continued to listen and I was more and more impressed and it was then that I decided I needed to find out more about this guy.
