Rob Smith is the founder of Resco Instruments, an American Watch Brand.

Resco was not conceived overnight but rather over many years of careful planning and consideration. As a matter of fact, R.E. dreamed of building a watch company many years ago but due to the dynamic nature of his "Day Job" things had to be put on hold. During this time, designs were refined and plans were laid just waiting for the right time to be set into motion. In 2009, the time was right.

Founded in 2009, Resco Instruments set out to build a sleek, simple and rugged timepiece. This vision was realized with the production of the Gen1 Patriot model.

Ernest and Rob discuss:

Small Towns, Tinkering, life & death on a farm, crisis, SEALs, watches, fire fighters, the Bosnia Conflict, Over-Enginnered, watch movements, PTSD, Turkish Coffee, and much more.

Mark Walters - Nationally Syndicated Host, Author, Magazine Columnist, Activist, Speaker.

In November of 2002 just two weeks after the birth of his daughter, Mark found himself the secondary intended victim of an apparent carjacking attempt while stopped at a traffic light on E. Fletcher Ave. in the Suitcase City section of Tampa, FL while on his way to work one day.  Luckily on that November morning, he was carrying his Glock 36, .45 caliber handgun. When the criminals, both of them, found themselves unable to get into the vehicle stopped just off of his left bumper, they turned their attention towards him.

Watching the frightening events unfold in front of him and happening at a frantic pace, Mark un-holstered his weapon and leveled his .45 at the criminal standing just feet away from him and approaching his vehicle. When confronted with a gun pointed directly at his chest and without having to squeeze the trigger, the closest attacker waved off his partner and both men retreated to their vehicle and fled the scene.

That frightening experience became the subject of his first column with Concealed Carry Magazine titled “The Importance of Carrying Your Gun 100% of The Time”, now listed in the magazine’s “Best Of” category.  Now a regular Contributing Editor for Concealed Carry Magazine he has been penning his column “One to the Head” (formerly The Ordinary Guy) for over 11 years.

Mark had always been a supporter of the right to bear arms but rededicated his life to the preservation of our Second Amendment rights after that frightening event.......

In this episode Ernest and Mark Discuss:

Culture War

Randy Meistrell is an interesting guest and has been a friend of mine for many years. As a waterman, he has played an important role in one of those major industries that I'm interested in as a hobby. Randy's father and uncle, Bob and Bill Meistrell founded the company Body Glove after WW2. Starting as a family business, you get the direction and values, the "founders influence" that instills the legacy of that company today. It's my pleasure to bring him on to today's podcast and I hope you enjoy it.
