The Interviewers Get Interviewed!

David and Mark celebrate the TENTH episode of the Shooters Nation Podcast by being interviewed themselves!  And, this interview was done as a live-streamed episode on YouTube with a live audience who were asking the questions!   Dennis Ritchie, author and blogger with The Art of Standing, emcees this special episode and asks the guys as series of questions about everything from how they met and started the Shooters Nation Podcast, to choosing the right carry ammunition, to how relevant 9mm carbines are.
