We all love gear, in other words “Hardware,” yet we know it’s low on the priority list when we look at the hierarchy of surviving violent encounters.  That said we still love gear and know our audience loves gear as well.  We will primarily talk about gear that supports us on The Path but will reserve the right to simply talk about cool guns and knives as well.  Furthermore we will equally talk about ways to support building your mindset and gear that aids in this as well.  Ultimately it is mindset that is the most important “software.”
