This podcast has been developed from my absolute favorite pieces of work done by Matthew Vivanco of Angstadt Arms @angstadtarms

They brought me out to North Carolina to do a bit of a documentary about what it’s like to be a professional protector. I think what was most beautiful about this is it weaves together very nicely the reality of what it means to be a protector by nature and by trade.

You’ll see my life behind the scenes, you will be able to enter my thoughts when doing what we do as professional protectors and you’ll get to see the end product as I move with a principal on the daily flow.

We put our heart and soul into this work and I know that for those in the game who are truly about being legitimate protectors, this will resonate.

It’s such an honor to contribute and to be connected with so many amazing people on all of these platforms and when doing honorable pieces of content like these.

Huge thanks to the Angstadt Arms team and to all of you following and sharing this content with the world.

Let’s make the world a safer place by helping good people to become more dangerous. Protectors are the white blood cells in the body of humanity.

Protector by nature and by trade
Byron Rodgers
“At The Ready” goes behind the scenes with world class shooters, instructors and industry entrepreneurs to uncover their daily routines, tactics, challenges and motivation. Viewers get to see behind closed doors and learn what makes these individuals tick and pushes them to succeed.

Chapter 05 profiles Byron Rodgers, a former Marine who has continued living the life of a warrior by becoming a professional Protector. In this game it’s the things you do while you’re not on the job that empower you to perform when the time comes. You simply can’t train enough for a job that can kill you. Protection is more than just a job… IT IS a Lifestyle.

Our goal for “ATR” is to share the lives and stories of the many amazing people in the firearms community and help to normalize firearms to the greater community at large. Each chapter of “ATR” will focus on a single person. With new episodes coming out every month.
