We will obsolete regimes of control with technology.
Today’s guest is the Nicola Tesla of ammunition. Austin Jones is the Cofounder and Chief Engineer at the non-profit research organization Atlas Arms. Their first concept in development is the Dagny Dagger project – a new type of legally-unrestricted handgun ammunition which in 9mm Luger is able to penetrate all soft armor and some rifle-rated hard armor. This will allow citizens the first legal access to armor-penetrating ammunition since 1986.
The projectiles are intended to be more readily home-manufactured than traditional AP ammo, and all research and data including Ghost Gunner code will be released open-source. The work will begin on 9mm Luger with future plans for Dagny Dagger loadings in 10mm/.40SW, 5.56, .308, and possibly 5.7. The Dagger will also debut APHP (Armor-Penetrating Hollow Point) bullets, a novel projectile design which boasts superior armor penetration while expanding and fragmenting on soft, unarmored targets for multirole performance.

3D printing makes it cheaper and easier to make your own gun.
This episode is one a lot of our gun listeners have been waiting for. Today we speak with a man known only as “Ivan The Troll”. He has emerged as one of the most prolific, innovative, and controversial members of Deterrence Dispensed, a decentralized 3D gun printing group built in the image of Cody Wilson’s Defense Distributed. Multiple social media companies have banned him from their platforms including Twitter, Reddit, Youtube, and Facebook. In response, he and other members of Deterrence Dispensed have migrated to encrypted chat and file sharing applications. Ironically, these apps have enabled greater innovation, testing, and sharing of 3D printed guns and files.

BTCPay Server is a freedom tool to accept bitcoin payments.
In this episode you’ll get a comprehensive understanding of BTCPay Server and an admiration for a bitcoin builder. If you’re an online merchant, what do you do if PayPal closes your account? If you’re an entrepreneur, how can you crowdfund your idea if Kickstarter won’t allow your product? What if Patreon closes your account because they find your political opinions objectionable? If you’re a freelancer living in Iran, how can you get paid while the the US enforces its economic embargo?
The solution to all of these questions is BTCPay Server, an open source bitcoin payment project. In this episode we speak to Pavlenex, an entrepreneur and prolific contributor to BTCPay. He explains how BTCPay helps you route around financial censorship. With BTCPay server, you can accept bitcoin, create invoices, crowdfund, accept donations, accept Lightning Network payments, create a secure wallet, and set up an alternative to Patreon.
Pavlenex exemplifies many qualities we admire. Years ago he wanted to buy some bitcoin themed t-shirts. When he didn’t find any he liked, he started a company, Bitcoin Shirt Co, to make designs he did like. Pavlenex wanted to accept bitcoin, but he didn’t want to use BitPay as a payment processor because it violated the ethos of bitcoin. Yet the only other option, BTCPay Server, was new and difficult to use at the time. Rather than take the easy route of using BitPay, or complain about BTCPay, Pavlenex contributed to making BTCPay better by giving the developers feedback, testing, and making many how-to videos.

Being left alone is not enough, update your philosophy.
If you don’t laugh, or aren’t offended by at least one remark by today’s guest, you’re not listening close enough. Julia Tourianski, known as “Brave The World” and “Your Hydra” is a provocateur, early bitcoiner, a “trad life” mother and wife, a deep broad thinker with a sharp wit. In this episode we take quick dives into deep topics.

Our guest today is “Anti-Gunner Leaks”. He’s goes behind enemy lines to expose and sometimes stop the dirty secret tricks of anti-gun extremists in the media, government, and tech companies. He’s funny, passionate, and loves to fight. If you ever meet him in a bar, buy him a beer.
First we talk about “Facebook Gate” when an international group coordinated to take down gun related Facebook groups through click fraud, until A.G. Leaks stopped them. Second, we go inside “The Trace” who claim to be a “non-profit newsroom” but in fact, are a radical left group funded by billionaires. The Trace bullies large tech companies into suppressing free speech about the 2nd amendment. Third, A.G. Leaks recounts the development of 3D gun printing groups in the post – Cody Wilson era. He shares the high tech tactics they use to route around Silicon Valley’s attempt to sharing files of 3D printed guns. We end with A.G. sharing inside information on an ATF controversy, and criticism of what he sees as corruption and incompetence.
