NRA News- I Am Forever- A Better Life In America

I Am Forever is the story of the American dream, told from three perspectives.

Episode 2, "A Better Life in America," contrasts Nick's bleak existence as a child in Nazi-occupied Greece with the comfortable state of 21st-century American life. Meanwhile, Kristy, Jessi and Faith complete their first day in the wild.

Guests: Cam Edwards, Caylen Wojcik, Seton Motley, Luke Carrick, Cody Carroll, Faith and Jessi. 

NRA News- I Am Forever

Just after the Founding Fathers finalized the Constitution, Ben Franklin stepped outside Independence Hall, where he was met by an intensely interested crowd. When a woman asked, “Well, doctor, what have we got—a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin famously replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

His point, of course, was that freedom’s great danger is that free individuals can use their freedom in ways that destroy it. Freedom’s survival in America depends upon the decisions of individuals, not the edicts of a government.

There is no point in time where freedom will ever be secure. The battle will rage forever, and every generation is enlisted to fight.

You’ll see this story play out all season on I Am Forever through three distinct parts:

The Past

Born in Greece on the eve of the Nazi occupation, Nick was able to come to America after the war because his mother was an American citizen. Driven by the tragedy, starvation and destruction he left behind, he seized every opportunity America had to offer.

The Present

Over the course of this season, a group of commentators will attack the soft underbelly of American culture, and how so many of the decisions we are making are contrary to freedom's survival.

The Future

Kristy Titus invites two women, Jessi and Faith, on a 25-mile backcountry adventure in order to reflect upon the values that keep us free, how they will live out those values, and how they will spread them in their families and communities.

 

NRA Tips & Tactics- Using A Bipod Afield

The supply of additional firearm accessories seems endless, so how do you choose which additions are necessary? In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus makes her case for why your rifle needs a bipod—especially if you plan to go afield. Though it's another gear addition to your rifle, a bipod is a tool that can be utilized on a hunt to help you make an accurate shot when it counts the most. Gabby Franco agrees that bipods are a worthwhile investment even if you don't plan to go in the field.

NRA Tips & Tactics- Positional Shooting

It's easy to get into a routine of shooting from the same position whether you're in a range or field setting. But the best way to test and improve your skills is to push yourself out of that comfort zone and shoot from different positions. In this episode of Tips & Tactics sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains how and why you need to integrate some unconventional positions into your shooting practice. Host Gabby Franco also has some ideas on how to test your shooting abilities in unique ways.

NRA Tips & Tactics- Natural Point Of Aim

Finding your natural point of aim (NPA) is one of the most important aspects of downrange accuracy. The goal of NPA is to eliminate muscular tension that can affect your downrange accuacy. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains the process of testing your natural point of aim with a rifle, and Gabby Franco follows up to explain that the same can be done when shooting a pistol.


NRA Tips & Tactics- Sight Picture

In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains how having a clear sight picture is essential to making precise and accurate shots. When shooting with a rifle, a scope is a great tool that can help shooters see a sight picture that would otherwise be faraway, near and clear. However, taking a shot with the wrong sight picture in your scope will end up hurting your shot outcome.

No matter the type of firearm you're handling, fit is key. There is no "one size" fits all gun, and for that reason it may be necessary to make some adjustments to your gun to make it the best fit for you. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus hones in on important aspects to look for when choosing a bolt-action rifle and a few add-ons you might consider to improve its fit for you.
