About Us

Do We Really Need Another Gun Podcast?

Yep!  Next question?  

Just kidding… Absolutely the world needs another podcast about guns!  But, more importantly, we believe that what the world needs is a better podcast for the average Armed American Citizen — and that is you, and that podcast is  the Shooters Nation Podcast.

Our mission is to provide shows that you'll enjoy listening to and be informed by and it all starts with an unwavering believe that We, the People, have the right to  keep and bear arms and that this right shall not be infringed.

We've taken our belief in and support of the Second Amendment and coupled that with our knowledge of firearms and the firearms industry, the friends and connections that we've made over the past few decades of being involved, and with an almost obsessive desire to produce shows that actually sound good and are as informative as they are entertaining.

Our guests run the gamut of the spectrum.   We are often joined by industry insiders, tactical consultants, firearms trainers, medical professionals, legal experts, and current and prior military and law enforcement with a passion to educate and inform.  At the end of the day, though, all of our guests are really people like you, with families, jobs, hopes, dreams, and a sincere desire to make it home safely at the end of each day in an increasingly dangerous world.


Meet Your Hosts…

David Yancy

David Yancy

David is the guy who started this whole mess. Born and raised in Kentucky, he has called Tennessee home for over twenty years and lives just outside of Nashville with his wife, kids and dogs.

Prior to starting Shooters Nation, David founded the Tennessee Gun Owners organization which has operated now for over a decade and has close to 30,000 members from across the state and around the world.

David is a repressed "guntrepreneur" trapped in the 9-to-5 corporate world, and hopes to one day escape and do his own thing.

He is an avid shooter, a dedicated concealed-carry practitioner, and spends as much time as possible at the firing range.

Every Day Carry?
It depends. Most days it's an M&P M2.0 Compact milled for Trijicon RMR. Other days it might be a Glock 19 or an FN 509M.

AR-15 or AK-47?
You can't make a man choose like that. Both!

Adult Beverage of Choice?
Michter's Unblended American Whiskey
