Trevor Furlotte from Slam Fire Radio

We’ve got an awesome show today that’s all about firearms and podcasting. Brett chatted with Trevor Furlotte competitive shooter, and host of Slam Fire Radio and the Reloading podcast. Trevor had a ton of great insight to share on growing an audience, and reaching gun owners.

A lifelong firearms enthusiast, Trevor learned to both shoot and hunt from his father early in his life. These days, in addition to hosting two podcasts, he competes frequently in the International Practical Shooting Confederation (IPSC). He also serves as the Director of the New Brunswick chapter of the CCFR (Which is basically Canada’s version of the NRA, for our unfamiliar listeners). Lastly, he is also involved in Project Mapleseed, an apolitical non-profit organization committed to delivering rifle marksmanship instruction to Canadians coast-to-coast.
