Senior college athlete Zachary Scholl of Palm Beach Atlantic University, was recently forced to choose between playing the Varsity Lacrosse during his final year or guns. The student played Lacrosse for three years at the university, but things started going wrong last summer.

The university lacrosse coach began harassing Scholl for mundane hunting photos on his Instagram account. That didn’t seem right, so Zachary Scholl wrote a letter and attempted to contact the college administration about the matter.

The situation came to a climax last month when Scholl took his girlfriend to the range and uploaded some pictures to Instagram. The coach university immediately told Scholl “[If] you want to play lacrosse for Palm Beach Atlantic you won’t post pics of your guns. It’s that simple.”

Rather and bow down to unjust discrimination Zachary Scholl accepted the coaches ultimatum and left the Varsity Lacrosse Team. “It was a crazy decision to have to make. I didn’t know how to respond. I was completely blindsided by it,” School explained.

While entertaining, this Bullets vs Meat video is purely an educational component of the S12 wound packing training. Zee Durham shoots up a large pork butt with green tip 5.56... then Super Vel 9mm and .223 FMJ rounds. Similarities to humans in size and bones make a pork butt a good demonstration tool for wound cavities to these various rounds.

Mickey reviews a new gun belt from Flagrant Beard, the Leather Ballistic Belt 2.0. Briefly put, this is a super-strong normal looking leather belt. On the inside you'll see it's reinforced with heavy nylon SCUBA webbing on the inside, making it outrageously strong and comfortable.

Like the previous Flagrant Beard belt we reviewed, it's got threaded Chicago screws allowing for interchangeable belt buckles if that's your thing... and made in the USA by the Amish.

Carrytrainer.com exists to remind people that we are all our own cavalry, we must be prepared to ride in to effect our own rescue. Be it an attack, car wreck, life threatening illness or poverty; we need to develop the "stuff" to get it done.

Seldom in life when things go sideways is a cop, fireman or doctor sitting by to bail you out. While we need those people, 99 times out of 100 we don't have that luxury of being near one at the moment of distress. Self-protection is not having a weapon, a first aid kit or ninja hands, it is a mindset and a philosophy. We believe we can make our world a better place by instilling the notion of personal-responsibility and self reliance into our youth, students and most importantly ourselves. When we lift ourselves up, we are elevated to see above the junk and clutter and can in turn lift up a brother, a friend or a stranger in need.

Mickey Schuch is a pistol combative instructor and former president of McHenry County Right to Carry Association.
