THE BEST DEFENSE: MASS CASUALTY EVENT, our special on how to stay alive in the hell of a terrorist/active shooter attack, will air on OUTDOOR CHANNEL 28 September, with an encore on 2 November. I don't have the times yet, but we'll get them up on DRTV and Facebook ASAP.
The 46-minute "Director's Cut" will air on My Outdoor TV (myoutdoortv.com) later in the month.
BTW, MOTV is a Y-U-U-U-U-G-E OUTDOOR CHANNEL paysite with thousands of our back episodes, including SHOOTING GALLERY and THE BEST DEFENSE. There's already a ton of content there, with more being loaded every day. In fact, Marshal Halloway is actually chained to an editing station uploading back episodes.
More importantly, at least to me, will be the original material. We launch SGO With Michael Bane, [Shooting Gallery Online, get it?] next week in beta. "Beta"is a software term that means, loosely, we're not sure what we're doing, but we want to put the stake into the ground and get to work. My long-term plan for SGO is to have it much more like the DOWN RANGE Radio podcast, looser, less structured, what's on my mind every week. We can get reviews up very quickly, cover events, etc.
Both Marshal and I are working with cutting edge video technology to to build out the studio and help us with other opportunities. For example, what if we could pull a Howard Stern and stream the video recording of DOWN RANGE Radio a couple of days before we launch the audio version Wednesday AM? When I was recording last week, I had 3 or 4 guns and a bunch of accessories on my desk…with a live video stream, you'd be able to see them.
MOTV is $9.99 a month…there are no long-term commitments or any of the usual bullshit. That's less than you'd pay for one of the overpriced swill served at Starbucks that gets funneled to our blood enemies' coffers! Get your coffee at Dunkin' Donuts and sign up for MOTV!
I have a magic code to get you your first month for $0.99 so you can see what we're doing, Go to the splash page, myoutdoortv.com, and clock on "Sign Up Today" on the lower right side of the page. That'll take you to the "fill in the blank page" we're all familiar with. Fill in the blanks, then click to the second age, which is the payment page.
You'll see a block there for "Promotional Code.:
Fill in the page and then enter SGO into the promotion code box. You get your first month for $0.99.
The "formal" launch of SGO With Michael Bane will be at the semi-legendary "Michael Buys the Beer" event at the NRA Show April 28-30 in Hot'lanta! Our plan there, if Marshal and I can work out the Internet issues, is that when you check in for your free beer, we'll sign you up for your first month of MOTV right there on the spot. Then for the first 200 people, we'll hand you a dollar bill to cover your cost. You can use the extra $0.01 to, say, buy a new Land Rover or an expedition in search of the source of the White Nile…the sky's the limit when you roll with Marshal and I!
If you've already signed up for MOTV, we'll have a little morale patch surprise for you!
Just to be clear, I don't get anything out of this, so I'm not shilling it for bucks. MOTV is something Marshal and I have dreamed about for years, and we think it can truly be rock and roll.
