I really didn’t want to write this post, but after evaluating all the options, this seems to be the best course of action. Gun Nuts Radio will be going on hiatus effective immediately through November 3rd; at which time I’ll re-evaluate whether or not it will be able to continue. Unfortunately, the demands of my current job place a high premium on time, and coupled with the new projects I’ve taken on such as the Quest for Master Class and several other upcoming items, the time simply isn’t there for everything that I need to be doing.
This makes me sad, as Gun Nuts Radio was always one of my favorite projects. Over the past 2.5 years it’s been one of the greatest pleasures of my life to bring you the latest in guns, gear, political and shooting sports news – and watching the show grow in to the number 1 shooting sports podcast on iTunes has been awesome.
I cannot thank everyone that’s been a part of Gun Nuts enough for everything they’ve done to support the show. My great guests, ranging from local activists and politicians, to friends of the show, and shooting sports superstars have always brought a smile to my face. Having shared in their knowledge and brought that out to where everyone can listen to it has been a wonderful experience.
This wouldn’t be complete with thanking people that have invested their time in Gun Nuts either. One of the factors that directly contributed to the growth of Gun Nuts Radio was the hard work put in by Breda as my co-host for the majority of the time the show was on the air. I’ve been described by friends as “a shooter who happens to blog”, which is a fair description. I’ve never been much of a political guy, and left to my own devices could talk about guns for hours and hours – Breda brought a much needed thoughtful political mind to the show, which allowed it to grow in to a much larger audience; for that I’m deeply grateful. I wish her the best of luck with B-B and Guns, as BlogTalkRadio as a network can always use another reasoned conservative voice.
Again, as I step away from the show temporarily I want to thank everyone that’s been a part of it, whether as a guest, a colleague, or a listener. For the listeners, thank you for letting me in to your homes and your cars – I hope to be able to return to Gun Nuts after November with a renewed sense of purpose!
Obviously, the blog will continue – the website was here first and will stay; the Quest for Master Class is currently an ongoing project that will be continuing as well, and in the near future look for more projects from Gun Nuts Media with my name attached to them! It’s a great time in the shooting sports, and there are a lot of wide open doors!
