Episode 88: Ryan Gresham, President of Gun Talk Media & Kevin Jarnagin, Content Producer at Gun Talk

Before listening to this episode of the Reticle Up Podcast, be sure to watch Part 1 and Part 2 of Build Box with Ursula, Adam, and me competing in the rifle-building TV Show.

On this exclusive Reticle Up Podcast, I sat down with the show creators and one of my judges and talked about how this show even came about. This episode will take you behind the scenes to give you a little idea of what goes into making a TV show like Build Box. After seeing applications open for the TV Show, I applied to be on the show. KJ was who reviewed my application, photos, and videos I submitted and invited me to be on the show! It was an unreal experience I’ll never forget, and if you had told me even a year ago that I would be in a rifle-building contest TV show, I wouldn’t have believed you.

If you’re interested in learning how to build your own ARs, check out DoubleStar Training Academy. They offer classes for law enforcement and civilians and are who taught me everything I know about building rifles, along with my fellow teammate on team DoubleStar, Scott Newnam. This entire experience is a testament that you can do whatever you set your mind to, and it doesn’t matter what your background, age, gender, or anything else is.

Build Box is the ultimate competitive gun-building show. Each week, contestants will be challenged to compete with each other, the clock, and themselves, while winning over the judges in a pressure-packed environment. From subsonic adaptations and competition conversions to pistol perfection and modern hunting rifles, Build Box is the ultimate test in gun-build mastery.

You can catch Build Box on the Outdoor Channel, Wednesday 7:30 PM EST, Wednesday 10:30 PM EST, Thursday 4:30 AM EST, and Tuesday 3:30 PM EST.⁠
