YOU’RE PAYING TOO MUCH! Spend That Money On Ammo & Training


Many times, you’ll hear someone say, “You don’t need a $X thing. You need a $X-Y thing and $Y in training and ammo.”

This is usually used to justify buying their 3rd meme-tier pistol or rifle so that they can dress it up for Tha ‘Gram!

However, there are absolutely instances where people are, in fact, paying more than they have to, and there are alternatives that are truly “just as good.”

A lot of dudes I encounter roll their eyes at the idea of dressing well (which isn’t the same as dressing up, but that’s going to be another video). But regardless of whether we’re talking jeans and a T-shirt or a three-piece suit, what if there was a way to spend less money on the same products? Not “just as good” products, the SAME products.

With just a little time and research, you can either get MUCH higher quality for the same dollar or just spend less for the same product. Consignment shops are your friends! And even if there isn’t one around you, there are plenty of second-hand options online.

EBay and Poshmark are pretty ubiquitous. And all it takes is a little education to know what to look for.

“Spend that money on ammo & training” has been a meme on the gunternet for a while, but why not actually take advantage of that opportunity if you’re not sacrificing anything to do so?

Alex Sansone took his first formal pistol class in 2009, and has since
accumulated almost 500 total hours of open enrollment training from many of the nation’s top instructors including Massad Ayoob, Craig Douglas, Tom Givens, Gabe White, Cecil Burch, Chuck Haggard, Darryl Bolke, and many others.

Spending his professional life in the corporate world, Alex quickly realized incongruities between “best practices” in the defensive world, and the practical realities of his professional and social limitations.

“I’ve never carried a gun professionally. I’m just a yuppie suburbanite that happens to live an armed lifestyle.

Having worked in the corporate arena for the last decade, I’ve discovered that a lot of the “requirements” and norms of gun carriers at large aren’t necessarily compatible with that professional environment.

I also have a pretty diverse social background, having grown up in the Northeast, and there are many people in my life that are either gun-agnostic or uncomfortable with the idea of private gun ownership.

This has afforded me not only insights into how we are perceived by different subcultures, but how to manage and interact with people that may not share your point of view without coming across as combative or antisocial.

This is why my focus is the overlooked social aspects of the armed lifestyle.”
