About the Show

Handguns and Defensive Weapons

Handguns & Defensive Weapons is one of the most popular shooting shows on the Sportsman Channel. It is co-hosted by Richard Nance and J. Scott Rupp. Its primary mission is to cover guns, ammunition and accessories for personal protection – primarily home defense and concealed carry – but the show also highlights recreational shooting and other gun-related activities. Individual segments focus on defensive tactics, product reviews, shooting advice and more.

The show airs on Sportsman Channel: Tuesdays @ 2:30PM, Thursdays @ 2:00PM and 10:30PM, and Fridays @ 1:30AM, all times Eastern Standard.
