Industry Spotlight

Black Man With A Gun

Back in 1999, Kenn Blanchard officially founded the Black Man With A Gun web site to talk about firearms, gun rights, and more. Since that time, with frequent updates and a large following, Kenn has been able to share his gun knowledge with the world.

These days, the site is much more than its humble beginnings as a blog (though it still has that as well). Much of Black Man With A Gun’s renown comes from the podcast maintained by Kenn. It was originally known as the Urban Shooter Podcast. With over 1.8 million downloads all time, it has a mature and engaged audience of business owners and enthusiasts in the firearms industry.

Black Man With A Gun is made possible by sponsorships as well as generous support from listeners and fans through Patreon. If you’re looking for an engaging site and show to learn more about guns, gun law, conceal & carry, and so much more… check out Black Man With A Gun!
