Ted Nugent at the Range with Red Jacket

Ted Nugent at the Range with Red Jacket

On this week's show, you'll see the time we spent with the Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent. He was in town to do a show and had called the week before to see about stopping by the shop. If you've never met him, let me tell you, he's a walking force of nature.

We rolled out a roasted whole hog and 20 gallons of gumbo, then took him into my office and gave him his pick of a gun. He walked out with a M240 and our new 1911. We sent enough rounds down range to do a platoon of infantry proud. Then he got out on the patio and fired off Kris's rocket motor powered, blank firing, guitar gun a few times (He's Uncle Ted , whadda ya want?). He gave Kris some good advice on the music business and told me something that's still ringing in my ears: My people are the most loyal, devoted crew he'd ever seen.


Now, I know this, but having someone who had just walked through the door that day point it out was revelatory. I forget how rare people like the ones I have here can be and I need to be better than that. People watch the show and think it's about guns and shooting and doing all this wild ass stuff you see on TV, but it's not. It's about the people that are here with me under this roof. They're the ones I'm here for.
