(Dallas, TX) As gun sales skyrocket across the country, new gun owners are searching for information on gun training and gun safety. The Consumer Team talk radio program is responding with a series of segments designed to help new gun owners find resources for information and training. Tiger McKee, nationally known firearms training expert, will be a featured guest on The Consumer Team, Saturday, January 19th from 5-7PM (Central) on 1080 KRLD Radio, Dallas. Pete Thomson, executive producer and host of The Consumer Team, commented on McKee’s appearance, “We know that there are many thousands of new gun owners in the marketplace. These are people who have recently purchased a gun, most likely a handgun which will be kept in their home. Our goal on The Consumer Team is to give these people information on both gun training and safety. And, we’re excited to have Tiger McKee on the program.”
Tiger McKee is Director of Shootrite Firearms Academy, a fire arms training organization offering online, video and on-site firearms training. Thomson added, “Tiger McKee is a valuable resource to our listeners because of his depth of knowledge. He’s effective teaching both new and experienced students. For new students, Shootrite features basic training and safety instruction. And for more advanced students, Shootrite Firearms Academy is well respected as an excellent training resource.”
Thomson said that future segments on firearms safety, training and personal protection are being planned for The Consumer Team. Thomson added, “We’re going to spend a lot of time on gun safety because it’s such an important part of handling firearms. Beyond that it’s clear that our listeners want information on being more secure in their homes. To address this need, we will be interviewing other personal protection and self defense experts including law enforcement officials in future programs. To me, a big part of the discussion on personal protection and firearms training needs to center around ways to avoid ever having to use a gun. And as people get better and more thoroughly trained they can become more skilled in methods of staying safe without having to fire a gun.”
