"Beau ST's joining US For one more segment of NBA dot com's top 10. Well, we talked a little bit about the Pacers and their coaching search and I mentioned this to you off air. Last time around before they hire Nape Yorker and I really wanted Mike D. Antoni. My main draw for it was and they had Victor Oladipo at the time to the Pacers, but I was hoping to use an electric guard like that in a high powered offense, and I just thought it was gonna be Something fun and something to behold. Even though they don't have all depot. Now they saw pieces that can move the floor, like, cares. Divert, like Malcolm Brogden. Does d Antoni have any interest in getting back into head coaching seat? I think he does. And what the challenges Uh, where does he want to go? Because he may have some choices, Honest pick of the litter right now. Bo is going to ask you that as well. But I don't want to give you too much. That's what I'm saying. Man, like, you know, do you go, And if Portland all have you do you do you run Damian Miller, Would you get out of here? C. J. McCollum in a D Antonio offense, so that gets a little exciting there. But, man, I think if you can get Mike D. Antoni and Indiana one thing I think would be great for look. I've been in Indianapolis. I've been in that arena, so I know what it's like, and he would be wonderful to see that excitement that he could delivered there. It just that up tempo offense and all of those points. You're going to have people that are going to go nuts for his offense. So you know, there will be a time two years down the road where you're like, maybe we should place them. But a lot of fun and I'll tell you what, again. Here's the other thing. I think you get into the playoffs with him. I really do. I think you get in the playoffs, and I think you get what you want. Um, you know, I keep going back to what's the real goal? What's the real ambition of this franchise? Look, I think everybody wants to win a championship. You know, I think that's obvious. And I think I'm saying something. Blatantly obvious at that point, but, um Right now. It's win a playoff series. Bo. That's where the bar is. I mean, it's been a long time since they've won a single series in the fan base. I mean, there's a lot of concern if they're if they're getting too apathetic about it, And if if interest is going to die down, I mean heck, some people across the state Thanks to Sinclair Broadcasting. They were unable to watch the Pacers all year long because streaming issues with getting contracts laid out So I mean, that was me. I was in that boat. Couldn't watch them, and it's just I'm thankful enough to see the train wreck. That was the season but at the same time, I mean, yes, it's a playoff series right now. I think, just win one and see where things go. So if you talk to fans around there, that's like that's the gauge. We were going to win a playoff series and everybody's gonna be happy if we build from right. Everybody wants to win win a championship like you mentioned, but I think that it's a baby step situation right now. Right now. They want to get back in the post season to win a series make some noise. That's where the bar was set. For this roster, um, the the last two or three seasons, and they failed that bar getting swept out a couple times, even when Nate McMillan was here who you give a superstar to a man and he is phenomenal in Atlanta. Absolutely phenomenal. Couldn't be happier for him. But yeah, that's where the bar is, I think well, and the other thing I think I think you need to understand is sometimes you know a coach gets stale in the locker room make McMillan is a fresh voice in the middle of the season. They think Melon was never a bad coach in Indiana. No, I don't think he would. I don't think that I don't think any of the people the patients that he's a bad coach. I just think it wasn't working at that time, and I think there's nothing wrong with that. But He's worked Absolute magic in Atlanta. The weird thing there was. There was a moment in Atlanta this year where they're like they better hurry up and sign him because he's going to be such a hot commodity that the Hawks might not keep him. He may choose someone else. Sort of like what we were talking about with D. Antoni, So I think, you know, Look, he's not. He's obviously not going back to Indiana. I think the also lock him down, but I think I think if you back the money truck up You get d Antoni. Do you have enough offensive firepower to really intrigued that then Because I think at this point, he's going to get paid. But he's interested in trying to win a Che 70, right? Yeah, he's got lucky. Thinks so close with the Amaury Steve Nash. Phoenix Suns. He can, really, I mean, he came reasonably close with the Houston Rockets. There were some injuries. There were some things that didn't work out. But they were a problem. Those great golden State warriors team ball. Take it to my grave. Chris. Paul doesn't get hurt. They're winning that series. I don't care. I don't care what anybody from Golden State says, man, Jimmy taking a step further. If they win that series. They're one of the champion. Yeah. Yeah. So that's the thing and, you know now you could take it even more full circle now, Chris, false, healthy playing in the playoffs, and boy Phoenix looks great. Yeah, I want to take it big picture in that regard..

Atlanta Hawks-New York Knicks Series Preview
"Let's get to the four or five nacho. This one is interior. Going to be a lot more entertaining. Probably the one. Eight matchup gets underway. Knicks hawks sunday at seven pm eastern on live from madison square garden. The best place you could ever go to watch a basketball game. The knicks swept the season series. A couple of those games. You know nate. Mcmillan wasn't even the coach so they were earlier in the year but keys to the series before we get to our predictions for nick's hawks. Trade started on this one. Well i think. Julius randle has an opportunity and a strong chance at being the best player in this series. He was incredible against the hawks. During the year in three games he was over thirty points per game to forty point games. He had a game winning tip as well. Clearly i'm tap dancing right now. I'm trying to pull up these splits here. You know you mess around with your tabs so much during a show it just throws the was saying julius randle thirty seven points per game. Twelve rebounds six assists. He had the game winning tip as well. He dominated the hawks this season. There's no doubt about it. They just don't have a great matchup for him though. We'll talk about some things. They're gonna do a little bit later on. I'm sure but i do think randall is going to produce at the very least the question will be. Where do the knicks. Then get all of their other points. They've had some great shooting this season. They got five guys shooting better than forty percent i think. Derrick rose has a chance to have a really good series here but skeets. I was listening to your podcast with l g do set on the. I meant you were talking about guys. Who have tyler hero. Potential somebody to explode in the playoffs who also has a cool factor. Let me offer you. Rj barrett my pick for this season's tyler hero forty percent from three during the season. Hit some big shots late. He was at forty seven from three point line for the last two months of the season. He really heated up. the shot. seems real. And i don't know he seems like a bit of a cool customer after getting called out by anthony edwards gimme rj barrett to be the secondary star for the knicks in this series. Because they've got to figure out a way to get to basically one hundred points

"Business and about what I'm trying to do and moving agenda forward. and. We're not going to move. Forward. As an industry and as a culture if we keep making it about this rail being point one later. We keep making it about Hey. This latest. Mag this is the greatest thing ever. This is going to change the world because the Palmer we used his. That's all well and good. That's a SPEC sheet. That's a SPEC sheet and for the affection or the high level guy that's going to matter. But you know as well as I do in a booth or in a situation you have let me connect you my Spec guy you know, hey, he's going to walk you through all the fine details. This is the conundrum of business ownership maybe even specifically in our industry because like you said. People who tend to start businesses at least in this part of the industry are engineers right in designing something you're making something you're creating your baby. So engineers typically aren't super creative. They tend towards the logical side of you know the the brain structure, not the creative side and that's I. think that's probably part of why biggest been really difficult for people for our industry to really like have have some monster brand. You know there's been a couple companies who I think have done it. Really, well, I, don't know if you know Kevin Britingham Yup did he's he's the best there is at Br as far as I can tell at branding he's he's he did it with a c. then remington bottom and kind of destroyed AC's brand but he had a great brand with a C. and now he's doing it with a q. and I think Mac pulled it well in the beginning the beginning in the early years murdered they did it really well, and so those two are. Are, really kind of beacons of hope that maybe any silence code it well for a while Yep love those guys doing those and that's what we I mean I I mean I don't have that kind of creativity I need to figure out how as business or you got to figure out and and as a business owners logical type of person you WANNA see results. That's the biggest thing when you're in the creative space of your business, you don't necessarily get quantitative results right away and. It's like I could spend a lot of money on this in a totally work his. You're always skirt that line of of whether this is good or this is over the top. The tangible thing if you can get away from Roi for a minute, which is always hard for the engineer owner type, you know get away from our live from an if you're gonNA remove Roi for one minute, you have to say what is the most efficient way for us to water all these holes? Let's start there. Because if we can find an efficient way because what's the best kill an efficient kill? So, if we can find the most efficient way to do this. That might be a Clint Smith as I gotTA give him credit. But if we can find the most efficient way to do things then that's a win i. So, in media just like in Gary v Coin that's not me something I've drawn on board make if you can create pillar content that you can bleed out into all your other areas that waters those holes both as a business owner as a and I put it right out there I'm not I don't keep any formulas a secret that you can put into the different spaces you can chop up into clips uses photographs you can create efficiency in your media programs I. One of the first things I ask every company right when I go into them as I say, what's your content creation program that'll tell me everything I need to know about their media department. If they tell me well, we do a photo shoot once a quarter then they have no plan. So your plan as you have no plan. Because all you're doing is taking a static photo. You're not telling your brand story through that. You're not progressing your narrative that way you're not doing anything. And if you're doing one off videos once a year, that's not really moving the ball forward what I look for is companies. At least ones I know that are at least moving in the right direction or successful is they'll have three four programs that they can say we're doing this with this this series with this shooter we're doing this with this guy we have this guy in our building. He's doing this and this and this, and we're watering youtube that way and we're watering this that way and we're watering that that way. So I target or I look at how efficient? Are they creating their media because that's the first way I'm GONNA be able to come back to you as an owner and say, here's your return on investment. We spent forty but we watered all these holes or we spent fit whatever the number and the biggest complaint I get from. Comey's give a lot of shit away I get that a lot. And I. Said, well, stop giving it away. And they look at me sometimes dumbfounded I'm like what's the cost of goods of what you're giving away like thirty thousand actually had one company say seventy, five, thousand. Okay Surreal story about us a real one. How do I stop that I says I stop giving it away. Then tell me what the cost of that is not the retail the cost and it was something like thirty grand I said, okay. Imagine if you put that back into your department. To create efficient, media programs You know and then they're like, well, how do we find the right I said the trick is finding the right person hired. That's the trick. And that's where. People don't understand bringing in the right talent to run your department and giving them the ability to create. and. That's why I think it's GonNa, move more and more towards creators and people that understand how to curate content a lot better. But hire a photographer and tom go out and pray. That's on a plan. That's a that's a band aid on an excellent. Especially in today's Today's World I. Mean You need you need more content just like you're saying but I think maybe part of the problem is. We do still have a lot of these old school owners in the industry and they don't get. part of the reason they don't necessarily get the importance of it. And I think secondly like a position that I might be in more is I. I I try to quantify the things of the money I spent and you know I don't necessarily know. Exactly. What is going to give me results I don't know how to create that. I don't know who to hire necessarily. So those are those are. You talk about it like an expert. You have done this but us. Aren't you know we're not necessarily necessarily experts in this and we look at this kind of like this black hole we don't really know what to think about it. So sometimes, easiest things to avoid it right and so but we all know it as well. I shouldn't say we all but I think a lot of us know what you're saying we know it but we just it's it's really hard to grasp. I've said on multiple calls. It's funny. You say that where I was like part of a hiring panel like friends would ask me, hey, would you sit with them? Yeah. Sure. Not a problem pay my pay my feet. But I've sat on multiple calls and I'll say to the person it's it's a question that a lot of owners fear asking. I say all right. You know what's your plan? If you come in here, what's your plan? It's a simple. and. I said well, you know this this this and I say. Well. Pick up your phone. WHO's the most influential person you can call the help the brand right now. It tells me a lot about the person. Because there's a lot of people out run around with degrees and a lot of people were fancy backgrounds that maybe worked at big brands and they could bring a lot of cool stuff in but it's understanding the difference between what's marketing, what's branding? What's running and influence or ambassador program what Social Media Management and a lot of companies can't afford to hire all those people. So they try to hire one catchall and drop it in, and that's really a mistake that person starts at a disadvantage. So a lot of times when I see what companies do no no, you hired me to do this. This is what I was.

Again the same meeting that I spoke with my sales team this week, we talk about the same thing now for us to be. Flat out honest when we started the company. Knew that are pro. The our our company was really designed and would succeed on our process and our production. So we focused one hundred percent of our money and efforts on making sure that we could make a good product and in some ways, some degrees we outsourced our well, we had distribution for our sales and. we we hired a company to do that. They've been great for us, but one of the things that we're trying to get back to now that we've got our process down and everything's going well exactly what you're saying, how do we engage better with that customer? Because that's what matters at the end of the day these customers want to feel like you know they bought product part of the family. Yeah like I said, it's in this industry branding. You got that brand says a lot about because you're in that specialized niche with that's critical. Yup You know what? I? mean the product in the customer to me become the two most important things. Yeah. You want to build a kick ass brand and you'd love to be able to throw two hundred and fifty thousand at branding and being huge. But at the end of the day, like I've worked for Lube companies are and sometimes it's a lube. It's only we're only going to get in so many people's faces because how many times you buy. Gun Loubier. Twice. You know. We used to go through this battle of breakthrough. With your fighting for more than it's important to know what you're fighting for what you're fighting for more than anything a shelf space in that in that space. So you're trying to win shelf space in your space. What you're fighting for is someone to come in and buy one stock. You want them to build five rifles, six rifles, and it's getting them to wear like there's trigger points like they buy their third stock triggers temper off your next one or. Whatever something that makes them feel warm and fuzzy or call at initiates a call from your team direct you know, hey, you know we noticed you know you've boughten three of our products. We want extend a ten percent off to you can use it whenever you want your gold elite customer like that's like simple programs that I think in our industry you know people don't spend enough time obsessing over that part of the experience and I think it's it becomes A. Almost like a if we build it, they'll come you know and that's kind of the old way of doing it and it's what stymied a lot of brands. I. Feel and we see it out there and even the the ramming love John Paul in the Remington. Brands it's stymied a lot of them because. They make such awesome stuff like the Marlin line is an awesome line, but there's gotta be a process for these things like you have to hold the person's hand like if I go to the Smith and Wesson custom shop, I wanNA feel like my hand is being held through that process and I think that a lot of that gets lost especially now because it's such a fire drill because everybody's buying everything, right? So we have to go back, we owe it to our customer to ourselves to go back and kind of dial that process in as tight as we can. It's not easy. It's always a work in progress, but you're buried in that niche where you have to be on that Yup. I, that that separates I think the best product or best companies from the mediocre companies is your customer service so. There's a there's a lot of good stock makers out there. Believe me I'm not I'm not I think there's good competition in my in my space. So you've got to find the little things that matter the little things that get that customer coming back to you. And not going to the competitor because they're going to get good stock from somebody else guaranteed. There's a good good companies out there if you want to expand into barrels and actions no no, and I say that because I've done that before I, really don't WanNa get into any of the serialized part. So the action is the serialized part. I. Really don't want to do to be under the radar of the ATF what's killing the I wanna ask you what's killing the action space because they can't make them fast of. Is it the tooling is just that it's a it's a very complex part I can tell you that now I don't know all the the innards of the action because defiance can't make them fast enough, and then you get a brand like defiance and they just killing it you know and then people just want their stuff but action making is complex I can tell you that right now there's access or so you need five acting you. Need like at least the way we did in the past, you have a gun drill, which is a super specialized drill only few companies have a wire. EDM's all kinds of different stuff and you got you got the bolt you gotta well the Bolt on if you know certain people do certain ways but you know there's a lot of process that goes into making entire action and this complex work the it's that space I feel can never meet the demand. And in my time in the business in ten years I, don't think I've seen. One Company six I mean defines kills it they Margaret. I mean let's be disclaimer but I haven't yet to see a company really meet the demand for I. mean go sir. Google search actually I sold out. That's going to be a problem you know coming up. Now we saw that run because of Covid, and this gets into a deeper business conversation. We saw covert run I talked to a lot of companies you know as you do to. A lot of companies are scared right now that they're not gonna be able to meet the election demand whether it goes either way right? And they feel, do we ramp up production? Do we try and you can't hire people because people are home collecting more money than than be making working? So I know companies that are really paying people cash under table to come in just to meet the demand because they cannot make the product fast enough. How do we fix this? Well I I don't know I'll be honest with you and we don't see my business in particular and I, speak for every. Business in the in the long range game but we don't see these huge inflows of of you know when when big defense weapons are being bought, you know like Kovic happened and when the riots happened huge gun sales but we didn't see a lot of it. We saw we saw some weirdness. There's definitely some weirdness more pokes in bumps. We had some customers who were just slow because I think. A. An insult customers who are who are busy I think it has to do with price point number one like new new buyers coming into the market. If they're going to buy a bolt gun, they're going to buy the cheapest one pretty much right off the bat takes I mean and and they're hunting by the way they're not long range years. They're hunters. This is what I'm talking about so. You know that's that. We just don't. We just don't see that ebb and flow, but we we have seen some weirdness now as far as as far as like the action makers and stuff like that. I'm not sure I'm not sure what they're going to do I'm sure I'm not sure how they go about hiring more people people I know defines is in Montana I don't know go by every day when I lived that I don't know how. What the workforce looks like I'm in Phoenix we have. You know at some points in the year six, thousand people in the metropolitan area like I got a big workforce to choose from. You know when you're in Montana I can't imagine that that a great workforce to choose from. So that's that's a problem and a lot of these companies are the same way there in these small towns start up a small. startups, and they build just like defiance and now they've got.

"To sell a five or six thousand dollar rifle and do a lot of them do super huge volumes and they did a great job I mean, one of the few companies I've ever seen or if only company I've ever seen really be able to do that most of the other companies built five or six thousand dollar rifles. Myself Two hundred from maybe a thousand, a year But these guys are selling lots of guns lots of guns. Yeah. They do a great job. They just moved into a new giant warehouse and other have that little bankruptcy issue but it was I. think it was just a matter of paperwork at that point and figuring out who they're going to bank with I think. There was a little bit of a logistical thing. There I can't imagine knowing the ownership there and they've been on the show that that was there was more to that. But I think the long range game is a fun one and we've seen it try Ryan multiple times to catch on for lack of words like whether it's people who instruct whether it's people who Participate in a sport. You know we've seen so many different competition level things come in why do you think it's struggled so hard to catch on and to gain traction in that space and is it just systemic all shooting competitions or competition sports and shooting? Is it the cost? Is it an elitist thing? Where do you see it fitting I think a couple I mean first of all the cost is is definitely a barrier if you want to shoot. Well you're going to have to spend some money. You know like like we just talked about fifteen hundred dollar rifle, and then you're going to have to spend a thousand dollars maybe issue on a scope to yeah I mean it depends on you can. You can probably get a vortex for a thousand bucks in and do well in the beginning but you know as you progress and you WanNa get better you're gonNA have to get better equipment it's an expensive. thing. So that's that's the other reason but you know it's it's work to a lot of people just want to go out and playing steel. This is not necessarily that this is really a a like an art like you've got to be into it like people who get into it get really get into it. That's why I think are part of the industry, the long range partly industries. So unique it we don't we don't ebb and flow with. The market like the like the defense weapons were not a defense weapon. We didn't see you know this huge ramp up like the whole other parts of the industry saw we didn't see that in our in our little part of the industry because we're not a defense weapon, we're also see the people in our industry i. just think that they're more into it because they have to be there spending more money. It's more of an art form you know. The Art of Sniping or marksmanship is is not just going out and plinking incumbent like you gotTa know your. Dope, you gotTa know how to use the scope. You GotTa Know Your your Kit there's a lot to it. It's I I call it the hockey. Of shooting sports like it's so expensive and you you do have to start at such a novice level you know it's not like if you're a good athlete, you can get out there and probably shooting hand competition and you could do okay. You'll fling a bunch arounds but you can be quick to the spots and you can figure it out. But the long range game requires an intellectual component. Far beyond in so many ways because of the amount of things you have to process if you WANNA eventually get to the level of being able to compete being able to go on a long range hunt being able to on some of those back country hunts. I mean you have to have the a because you only get one chance a lot of times. So when you build these rifles, it's important. Understand what you're building them four and we talk about glass and building one. Can you get in the game for three? Yeah. Are you looking more like six just to kind of really feel good about yourself? Yeah, and then it goes from their phone numbers I mean you can spend ten and still be a ways away depending on the glass I mean between Schmidt and Bender and. A good long range rifle. You can be in the hall about seven Thousand Dollars Real fast and when I explained that to people, and then not even going into ammo and the loads and everything else because that's a whole fight over what caliber makes the most sense and how that works. When you get a customer I'm always curious about the customer experience when you get someone who comes to you with your experience and they say Ryan and I'm sure you get fifty times at the dinner table and friends come in. Want to build one. Why do where do you even start? I. I. I. Get actually get that question all the time, and even though we just make stocks and accessories and we don't build guns I still get question you know says nature in my my path. I honestly I don't even answer that question. Well, I mean there's so many different calibers. It's so specific to the user I'd have to spend you know thirty minutes an hour with someone just talking about what they're what they're using it for you. WanNa Hunt do you are you looking at shooting pr asked you wanted to shoot off the bench? Or are you looking at you know extreme long range short-range what's your goal You know? So there's a lot of questions to ask I mean, and there's some pretty popular calibers now six, four, five creed more, and there are some other six five variants coming out and all kinds of really cool stuff and get into freak out about it. You can get an all these wildcatters just there's endless like rabbit holes you can get in it's almost impossible. The individual really needs to do his own research and you know part. Of that researchers may be asking me a little bit about what I think but it's really the individual needs to really understand what he wants or she wants out of it and then just start plugging away your I get a sense you're like me you like listen I'll give you on go out and shoot for a little bit. Then come back to me do a little research, watch a youtube video dial in your thoughts a little bit on what you're looking at, and then we can have a conversation at least on A. A plus one level. Yeah. That's Kinda how I am yeah and. You. Know you try to have as much patience as you can. But a lot of people you know when they don't know they don't even know the right questions to ask and it's hard for me to even give him any good information because you know it takes a lot of dialogue to even get to you know what? What is important the root yeah the root of it. Yeah. It's a tough one like that. We get these questions all the time you know I'm not instructor I never pretend to be everybody who knows me knows I zero patients for that ship. I just don't have that mechanism teach there's far better teachers out there that I suggest people go to this far better lessons to learn. Can I show someone a couple of things sure have put a lot of rounds down range share does that mean I know should from China anything on the level you do or certain now that's why I go to guys like you I'm not that guy. But you get these questions all the time whether it be in the DM at the dinner table, and it's important to have a path as a company to see these people from eight to be especially the people that want to become customers, and that's the thing you always struggle with his having the patience to say, well, you know if you're thinking of getting into this, this would be something I would suggest start with know almost have cut and paste answer but there's nothing like in my opinion just saying to someone hey, grab. Gone off the wall you know borrow one of mine go out a couple of times. Set. Up is a handful ammo shoot a little bit go watch couple of youtube videos some experts out.

"Past now but his history's rate and you know it wasn't just he started the stock company. Invented these fiberglass stocks no one had seen him before and then he he moved on and started building guns and he did some great stuff for the military back in the late seventies and eighties. It's so fricking wild to me. Because I just think of those guys we have all the technology in the world now and I just think of them. In a back room somewhere in like a shop, not even a shop. Let's let's. Let's make the story better in like a barn you hammer and away and it. It's just bananas to me right like the the ability to see something that we don't have the ability to go on the Internet to to sketch out. It's just they're really changing the game and they don't even know it and they don't even get the respect. They deserve today for the things that they did. Partly because you have so much technology now in advances things but you know back then it was such charter to hammer and Chisel my grandfather started his business on his dining room table imagine imagine a poxy material that literally is it turns from go into this hard material, your dining room tables literally just caked now what does poxy? Yeah he's like in the Barn I use that analogy all the time just figuring it out and there's so much time and family diamond so much shit lost. Now you fall into it you come along where you like I want to run with this or were you like Well. So the the story goes, I got out of the military I went to work with my dad and McMillan He took over the company sometime in the eighties and you know my dad and I just couldn't really figure out how to work together. Well. So ultimately, I ended up doing my own thing which turned out to be Grebo our reactor as well and so that's that's kind of how that was I would have been happy to. Take on that Macmillan name for it. In a different way you know I think everybody has their own path and I was just really eager to do something. You Know My dad was in a different place in his life. He was you know kind of older guy had worked his whole life. You just wanted to kind of a little bit and so that wasn't what I wanted and so I just kind of moved on and started my own thing. I think that's so noble and I wasn't going to bring it up unless you are. I think it's so noble to want to forge your own path and do your own thing and make your own mark and. It's crazy to me because we live in such a crazy time right now where people. Everybody's looking for the easy way. And everybody's looking for the cop out and everybody's looking for the simple turn like I'll just go work for dad or. I'll go do this. You decide to take something on. That I think is is a big project I mean taking on a stock stocks are tough and that whole line of business is tough. I mean I've had the guys on from gun works I've talked to a lot of different people that long range game is tough. It's it's hard to make a buck in it. You GotTa Hustle you gotTa work hard because there W-. There was this huge influx of people don't understand the long range world who are listening and Ryan can better explain it. But the way I saw it from a marketing perspective we saw come in everybody was trying to do these big three, four thousand dollars setups. But then of course, it comes in and they're doing a fifteen hundred dollar you know long range gun now. Did the cats out of the bag, but they're going to do long action next but you know, I think the bottom's fallen out of that market and it's going to be inexpensive to create a really great long range rifle and part of that is innovation that machining part of that is creation and there's always gonna be a place for the gun works as the world and the companies like that. That are doing real boot tiki stuff and I think there's a place for it, but it's a tough business and that's that's what makes it so interesting to me because that is a hard nut to crack the long range market. Dude. You just you totally hit the nail on the head like. As technology advances as machining gets better as people get better as we learn like gun prices and I've seen it over my fifteen years in the industry have just fallen. It's real getting really hard to sell high end rifles because you can build a fifteen hundred dollar rifle, even a thousand dollar rifle and make it shoot at an at least an. EMO. Way. Maybe even half Moha like it used to be when I first got into the industry people were guaranteeing m one mo way I'm like, oh my gosh. Okay that's great. Now, if you don't shoot 'em away, you can't even sell a gun. You know what I mean and it's it is it is taking the you know the whole industry has. and. We both know this ninety. So when people start talking about sub away in barrels, I'm like. Ninety nine percent of the barrels out there shoot sub MOH, because they're all using the same fucking machines out there to make the bowels and there's like four barrel makers and the whole planet we both know that and I tried to explain to people. Unless your competing at a high level. You're in the military at a high level, sniper? Sandra. Or you're hunting. At a high level. And you're shooting thousand yard plus most of these people that by this stuff or don't fully understand it you you're gonNA, be fine. With most of the barrels that are out there in the universe and it's it they totally overthinking. Go Out and buy you know a thousand dollar proof not that proofs about skype product. You know for the most part, you can get something really good young at the right price point, and that's the nature of where the market's going and sig be and a leader in the industry is always going to set the tone. Does that mean? They're the best? Not Necessarily, I'm a big Fan. But at the same time, you know it's a fifteen hundred dollars bulk on. It's going to be a great bulk on they're gonNA do a good job getting people in. There's always going to be a place for the gun works as the world degrade of the world in certain folks that are going to try to come in I think it's going to be a lot harder for some of the bigger conglomerates like the Sax and everything else to jump in. And try to be an in-between what you guys are and what sick that's where they're going to structure no-man's-land there in no-man's-land, it's really tough and you know companies like gun works. You're spot on with gun works. Those companies will always well I say, always, if as long as they continue on the path that they're going they'll have business because in our industry and especially I think in long-range brand matters. So. Gun works has created a great brand, right so you buy a ten thousand dollar package including a scope from them maybe something similar you could get you know for three or four thousand dollars with the scope having your gunsmith, build it the the shooter is probably never going to know the difference. Right? He's when he holds that gun works gun he's got that good feeling of Dick rose three inches. And you know and then you've got the gun works Service or what do to make to make the customer feel like a part of their team that's what gun works does some companies some companies are a marketing company that sells guns. Some people are a gun company tries to market gun works as a customer service company that sells guns their experiences. Amazing. They did something that you know in the market that I that I hadn't haven't seen since is. Being able.

We already started getting into it, but we talked a little too much before the show which always scares me. Because I get into a before the show everybody knows this but I had an awesome time just chatting with him and even getting to know him a little bit sharing some of those same mutual friends. He's a veteran. He's gotTa Company that I started to get familiar with but everybody knows I'm a little weak in the long range thing but hill educate me. You don't say former he's a seal. Never say former right now. The one and only. Ryan mckellen Macmillan. mcmillen, right you say. Yeah. So this is exciting dude. Haven't you in here I mean we could get into all the quintessential seal stores but we're not. We're not GONNA do that. I've heard them all. So tell me start back with the brand in how you got to this place with the brand and what made you want to get in this godforsaken industry for whatever reason and how that happened. Well, I don't think I. Really had much of a choice I mean I was kind of born into the industry, my grandfather. Fiberglass stock gale gale McMillan. He invented it in nineteen started working on it in the late sixties they started McMillan fiberglass stocks in in Nineteen seventy-three I I grew up in that business I grew up. That was what you know. My family talked about around the dinner table. So it was just kind of in my blood after I got out military you know I went and I, worked for the family business for a while and it just it just something that I love because you know the great thing about making stocks. It's like there's so much to do. There's so much you can do with it You know you've got the design you can think of the design you've got your working with different materials we got we work with carbon fiber we work with fiberglass we work with aluminum all the entire process of making a stock is really cool. There's it's not just like one simple thing we do. We're not like distribution and we we receive a product and then ship a product I mean we do it from start to finish. So from concept all the way to distribution branding marketing production process I mean we we do it all. So that's that's really the challenge to us is you know making that happen was your passion long range shooting. My Passion. Yeah. I would say that of anything my passion, we'd be long range shooting almost by default though I didn't like grow up shooting range, of course, shot little bit with my with family and stuff. But but you know I was I did some sniper stuff in the teams I did some salt stuff in the team. So I did a little bit of bowl. So I wasn't like a full blown night. You know it wasn't like a totally on the sniper side the teams. So when I got out though, but knowing that my family's history, you know knowing that that's where. My grandfather knew some of the original plank owners seal team, six guys I mean. That's how close that was. Part of the reason part of the reason why I went to the teams is because that history so you know I just of kind of fell into it a little bit but I love it it's great and fits my personality. You know there's a difference between an assault or a sniper, the different mentalities, assault and breaches it really aggressive. They're really extreme type. A. Personalities which is the teams need that type of person and you've got the snipers who are more methodical and that's kind of. That's kind of you're you're a super chill dude I get that about you. You seem like you know how to turn it off. It's in there. You know that's a good. That's actually fucking really good thing. Yeah. I think there are group some of the seals are like that. You know they're they can turn not that they can turn dom can turn it on their guys like dominant Chris, Carlin, Eddie Penny, they're they're intense and you know those guys really drove the team's as far as I'm concerned, they drove the teams and they drove the teams as they were in the front of the you know of the pack driving but you also need the guys to who are who are methodical and ended up being your snipers and and Just mellowed out. Yeah. That's what that's kind of where I the role that I fit and I feel like. I love these stories you now you mentioned your grandfather. To me and this is really important because. There's so many guys and it's not a secret anymore Ernie Emerson's out there and the training that he's done and what he's participated in through the years those stories start to like trickle out and bubble to the surface of some of these guys that have been behind the scenes. There's guys like your grandfather that you know develops these brands and develop these products. That are been utilized for years and years and years behind the scenes. There's so many of these great stories of guys that not just supported teams or special operations or other things, but they were just involved in the evolution of things and development of things in the RND and find that. So fucking cool because back when they were doing it, it was like. Territory. Now, we have the template in the roadmap for all things, right? Because it's out there because the Internet and everything else but those guys were operating in the dark like a chisel in fucking back room. I have some some cool stories about my grandfather, I? He know the M forty, one at the Marine Corps built was really the. Birth of the modern sniper rifle. That was really the first rifle in you know in American or probably world history that was dedicated solely for the art of sniping my grandfather was A. they. He had contacted them to help to help them build it. My grandfather spent most of his younger years. Competition shooting. So he grew up loving shooting knowing the art of shooting and back in the seventy s or sixty s early seventies they didn't know. Make an accurate rifle. So he helped him on that. Then he then started working with the plank owners at seal team six building specialty guns for them and the early eighties I mean. He's got some really cool histories.

I think when you listen to Terry carefully. You can hear her say. She wrote the Book in defense of being able to explain herself that this kind of relationship would be okay for her, so she was already defensive about it. She was already projecting. What other people would think about it? I've known Terry McMillan through her work and her art in her. Talent and her books.

Pay The rent until this passes so. That's what we're doing. We're really excited to put the show together for. You're really excited to talk to Chris. So let's get to the conversation so as we mentioned we are recording remotely with Chris. Mcmillan a stylist who has worked with the biggest celebrities in the world including Kim Kardashian Miley Cyrus Sarah Jessica Parker Jennifer Lopez and of course his longtime client and friend Jennifer Aniston. He's also the owner of the Chris McMillan Salon in Beverly Hills. And like many of you. He's just trying to manage his business care for his employees and keep it together so we wanted to have him come on and talk a little bit about that but also hang out kick back and gossip about hair so that we could use a little light in our lives a little fun conversation and that is exactly what we did. Welcome Chris McMillan. Wow the technology we're here with Chris. Mcmillan Chris Thank you for joining US remotely. How're you doing? Thank you for having me? I'm doing well today's up. Good Day right. That's you gotta check in day by day right one day at a time. They truly today's a good day so far so good. Okay just to give us a little bit background before we get into your career. Let's talk pandemic because what else can we talk about? How is it affecting you and your salon and those that work for you? What do you the Salon closed? I'm assuming this law is closed and I think I was the first or second salon. I was the first big salon in Los Angeles to close. It was somewhere like the it was march tenth or twelfth somewhere around there. It was a Wednesday. I've been kind of flip flopping because I work with Jennifer Aniston obviously and I've been working on the morning show with her and we went back to season two of the morning show and we worked on Monday and we worked on Tuesday and Tuesday. Everything kind of fell a little weird. I realized around the set. It started getting real. Yeah and I went to work on Wednesday at the salon because we weren't going to go back till Friday and so I went to the salon and it also felt weird that day and then while I was at the salon I got a email. That production has shut down. We will not be working on Friday and we will assess the situation and and let you know so and you like so. You are early to deciding to close. Yeah Salon closed as Lonzo Wednesday. I canceled my last two clients because once you get me personally once I get something in my brain. I'm a HYPOCHONDRIAC so I I couldn't get out of there fast enough. I cancelled by last two clients and Wednesday. I decided to close the salon down. Yeah how are your stylists like handling it and the people that clean your salon and all your workers. What's going on with them? So as far as the Stylus. They're all independent contractors and I speak with all of them. I call five of them every day and I got to say I do. Nancy Meyers hair the director. Yeah and she was already seven days in quarantine by Wednesday and by Friday she. She kept telling me she's like Chris. You GotTa get out of there Chris. You need lockdown Chris. You need to shut she goes. You're a leader in the hair community. You need to set an example and I got it really give. Nancy Meyers a lot of credit for the move that I made by Friday shutting my salon down. I let people stay in their Saturday in finish out there week but I was not there so yes. Everyone is the beauty industry not only as my salon affected and all the hairdressers are pretty much a paycheck to paycheck. Kind of business. You know. They're independent contractors. So they're not employees. The only employees that I have are my salon manager my front desk girls and my cleaning crew other than that everyone else is independent contractors so thankfully as a salon owner the circle that I have to worry about is my salon manager is the cleaning crew and the front desk girl which I still have the front desk girls working. And you're checking in with everybody. Who's the contractors? So yeah that's good advice and I'm checking in with like all my independent contractors. I've I've been there twenty years so I have a really great relationship with my landlord. That's yeah so he knows I've never missed a payment and I've done nothing but make that building more beautiful and and so he's great. He's fine and he's that I'm here. Whatever you need just you know. We'll figure out the payments when we come back. You don't have to pay me until you guys get back up and running so it's Great. I'm you know I think there's been a lot of love out there and a lot of people willing to help right. I think I think people are really connecting to a human interaction rather than governmental or financials or banks and stuff like that Were trust to each other's humans right now. We're not trusting. I'm not watching the news. You know what I mean. Yeah it's scary because they don't know what's going on. Yeah if something happens. I'm GONNA find out. We're not in a bubble right. News is traveling through humans communicating. Like this right now on a computer and I think we're getting really good information like this in a grid the Brady bunch were the Brady Bunch. Were Chatting Brady Bunch style these days? It's so crazy that like we're having this conversation. I'm looking at you in upper right corner. Jeter my upper left to their producers You know you are looking at. You've you've got like you're a little headphones on in your house. But you are. You're a businessman your salon owner. But you're also you know it's ten so corny saying this celebrity hairstylist. I feel like I'm reading. You Know People magazine boldface Celebrity Hairstyles hairstylists to the stars Chris. Mcmillan you are the rare hairstylist. Who is a hybrid of all of these things I mean how did you plan to become like a salon owner? Did you plan to do celebrities hair like did you? What was your end goal? My plan was to do five people's hair a day and charge them hundred dollars each so I would make five hundred dollars a week. I would make two thousand dollars a month and so then I would rent an apartment for a thousand to twelve hundred dollars a month. I would get a car that I think I was looking at like Volkswagen's or something that was like two fifty a month so that's how I thought about it that way. I was able to do what I do like. I always kept that SORTA That's how my brain I'm a real believe it or not. I'm a real simple thing. And it just snowballed from there of that happen. You don't charge your hundred bucks for haircut anymore you know. I was given opportunities to prove myself and I've always taken advantage of those opportunities. I truly from the bottom of my heart was meant to do hair. I really was. Who's hair have you been doing that like the longest like who is the first person that got this one hundred dollar haircut my mall okay? My mom always had bleached blond hair. Fair Faucet like my mom always had kool hair always. That was her thing. Gio is a great hair. She loved her hair stylist. Nick she always had great hair. She was pregnant with me. And that's the first hair salon. I went that I worked at was Nicole's in Manhattan beach on Tenth Manhattan Avenue when I graduated high school like the day the next day. I worked there because I had my licence. Oh wow you were like in it to win it yeah I. My mom was like you doing here. I'm like but they're gay and she's like yeah. You're my gay son. I've known since you were too. It's okay you'll be fine while okay that you told me I remember you said. You have some client. I want to say her name is barb. Bonnie Greider Oh Bonnie Bonnie Bonnie writer lives. It's so funny. Her daughter texted me yesterday. As I as everything. Okay I was like. How's your mom and is a body? Greider is a third grade teacher in San Pedro and she has a standing appointment with me since eighteen years old. Every my gosh. She gets her haircut and I still charge her. I basically doer for free. I talked to her sixty sixty five dollars for a haircut and she tip speed thirty five. Oh my God and she comes here salon she could come to my salon and even Gen does like Shaquille. Can you come to my house on Friday at four to blow dry my hair? I'm Bonnie Jennifer Aniston knows about Bonnie generators and knows about bunnies is aggregate. Do Bonnie and then come over this camp. Would I got mega celebrity? Jennifer come to your salon just like a regular person. You always go to her all the time. She loves it so like she might. She might be behind. Bonnie like waiting to check out no she took check. I set my soul on as an old nineteen thirties bungalow house. So it's very private anyway. So it's very easy and comfortable for people like Jennifer to come and get their hair done and I am kind to like in the center so she knows everybody that works with me. Everybody knows I do her hair. So it's not like nobody's bothering her and everyone does that. I'll kill them if they do that. Like all ends. I got a sharpie asking for an autograph. Nobody is the you know every now and then you'll see like someone walked by like. Oh I'm just checking my messages in l. But I'll I'll check them. I'll be like excuse me and they're like sorry. I'm sorry. Sorry the phone away. Have you really done that have you? Have you really checked somewhat? Of course that's how he stays in the bids right this long. I have to think though Bonnie's been around since you were eighteen age. You okay there. You go do some math people. But that means you've seen her through a lot of trends and styles your other clients regret any of the like styles or cuts you've given anyone in the past not really. I've always gravitated. I think I think I have. I'm not like trying to prove myself and do something crazy and be the most creative. I really truly do want people to look the best that they can look but I also do love change like Linda Evangelista when she had long hair and she went short la that change. She looked just as good. You know and I watched you know Madonna Gino and her changes in and people like that like I always been influenced by change. I remember ruined. My mom had long. You know she had like Pamela Anderson Farah Fawcett hair and she came. Back with highlighted. Low Lighted Cheryl teague hair And then and then from that she you know like in the eighties. She cut her hair short and it was sort of like the Lori L. Freehold Moose campaign like my mom came back as Rachel Ward. You're no character and so I've seen really beautiful changes like. That's the kind of change as I like to see. I'm not trying to like be dramatic in and prove myself through hair but I like to change people's hair like my own that has like feathered hair. And then you give them a Bob that was you know a really Nice Change. You just mentioned yes. You're you're not really working in the salon but you're you had been working on the morning. Show the hairs like good but not great. I'm not being rude. I'm saying it looks like a real news anchor. Yeah well that's what was then purposeful. We did that as we you know. We wanted her to be wanted. Alex Levy to be relatable. Almost you know I mean. It's a moment if you the Steve Corrales character can't even think of his day. Right that's lug it's just got fired and she's unraveling yes is stressed and Jews touching her hair a lot and it's all do for her. Okay what would be an Alex's shower? Do you think what a woman like that. What would be in Alex's show? Would it be drunk elephants new hairline? Of course it would be because okay..

I'm I'm going to going out. So you get these pursue. It will be falling downstairs downstairs in Alabama. You know it was it was. It was a frightening sound but then we got an opera singer from from doncaster. Actually you could actually hold the a not dude. It was so fascinating on. Do it was an interesting meeting of mine the other clauses we got with somebody from Cardiff because they are that kind of odd God. uh-huh pack rebelled to do that. Thing pretty was interesting because I always think that as the lead Tony said people like me are the ones that to give the comedy pats to to ensure that you can write high like an opera in this verse because a lot of people don't like my voice. I know that some people think very own people think all dot Prince John's and in fact the opposite is the case on Pinch John's docks which it was a pussy. Tony don't talk about that in real life than actually do in the house. Don't let this. I'm microphoning now. Obviously not the same and I was at the beginning of the end of the decade. This does the decade meaning link this ten years twenty ten. Did you feel like lots changed since you were a bit about my age. Ten years ago I'm sixty three now so it's fifty three then. Obviously the is that thing where people of course it's not the new decade twenty eleven jeff all that kind of remember I remember. I was in the same house of the a decade and you felt kind of two thousand nine. You felt so hopeful the little things things can only get back to regret. Even though about this terrible crash they will be fine. We'll be all right. We'll be opening new libraries. We plan tissue or staff Cintas. Carry on we'll keep going. The North won't get negative disc. It'll be grit will never get in again and then then you can hear anything. That was wrong. That was it and so yeah you just hope for better things for the next decade really do because I still feel full of energy and fame but you think think in ten years and I'm seventy three we'll I still feel is full of energy. And if things have gone downhill in the same way they have in the last ten years scary hiring. I still have a full head of hair because we brought this ball. Was bowled sooners bold. But I've got my mom's off we still have fled of air. When I'm seventy three's well look at it like this? except I'll be more wrinkled and our silver full Melvyn Bragg southbound and looking looking ahead ten years ago never for also what would be happening now but then again you never know when you think of this decade in those terms. Yeah it's been it's been quite a big shift. I mean uneven. Frank Entrepot spoke about the Olympics. At which hasn't gone out yet when this goes out but so much has changed since the that feeling in the UK that we had when the vizier within four years. And that's the other reason that you stay where you are. I still where I am because you think will eventually the off off. It's GonNa rise again on. Something's got to happen in the not so much got to shift so I think I always talk about the queen's should move to bands Louis that without Stati and it'll be on the coins saffy death or are you not actually set up on the coins would feel you always think that the all the economic power has always. He's been sucked down into the south. So mom could do soup a backup in August two if it actually starts in Barnsley Coom. That'd be fantastic.

We're GONNA ask you to read opponents well Quite nostalgic sentimental. Well I am a sentimental mount. Yeah so I would cry very easily stuff but I think I don't know I think maybe the older you get the most out looking back. I've always tried to look forward as well but maybe me right. And he's about the past about my child about my family about people that are new but I'm also always trying to look forward turnaround about the moment. People do accuse me of being sentimental and looking back maybe maybe I do a bit too much of that. I'm not sure but maybe the age I am looking back. I am starting to look like me dad when I had recently the Babba showed me the back of the neck back to the back of my dad's neck. I'm becoming like me Dad. I look at myself at the minute. I think I'm like Madonna was such a gentleman and maybe I am starting Dan to look like him down to think like him. So maybe so maybe maybe is I don't know rose-tinted. I'm not sure but I mean those things are always got to be important. The family stuff looking back over your life it's what resonates people are supposed. Which is what people my age? Look at things and you can mention particularly always lived in the same place. You mentioned very specific things like Maude Dobbs near or convention in particular boss number thirty seven as opposed to fourteen but people who that's kind of always been interested in the universal in the local. You could be as long as you want. And that can be universal. The great poet George MCI Brown never move. Ah the Orkney islands but the most amazing universal poetry about the island of Hoy and about the island of Westrom Papa. Westbury and you don't have to. You'd have to travel shovel fire to actually find universal truths. That's why aren anywhere could well be wrong. But that's what I think and does it come easy to writing is as you know. I'm writing something at the moment and I'm way of struggle and it's painful and when it's finished I like it but when I'm writing kind of hate it do you do. It depends what you're writing so writing poems. I find relatively easy. I've just been writing a big caudal piece for a massive quiring half richer with Anne Dudley always in the art of noise and she wrote the music for poll dark and she she said I liked star written these caudal pieces for that was really really out because she ended up writing writing too much. You try and put the music in the words and so you have to cook stuff out. I've written a couple of pros books and found that really added a book called neither Naughton Awesome assuming that was like my life and I found that really hard just having to cook there so we'd like to write a book. I said good short things I can write. Columns can write poems know. We'd like to write a book as long as what thirty thousand words we thought nine hundred thousand and we were all different and I found that really answer some of that counteract in Ryan points. Because you're thinking about a mysterious strolling about on your early morning Straw. Half the redrafting is in your head so you think I find them relatively easy. But I've just written an opera recently in Yorkshire dialect because I thought can the operatic form the long on not hold the short vowel because we speak in flat bells but both Borsellino Long Long. No it was very odd because most opera singers I can't Yorkshire accent or they just couldn't do it. It was fascinating totally fascinated to go. I'm coming.

"And just love to sit and listen right yeah. That's the experience that I want more that longer formed thing and we're seeing that transition start art to happen a little bit or the path Saturday verging a little bit in visual media. Do you think do you see that or is it happening already. Am I not paying attention. It's been happening for years. I think it's all sort of happening. All the time. Link singles are really good for getting people's attention but you know different artists have played with different sort of idea some just put out singles and then some are actually putting out very large records because they've you're talking just from financial you know benefit standpoint. It's beneficial for someone to listen to one song and listen to another song at another one and another one and so if you put out a record twenty tracks if they like it. They'll stay on your record. I think Drake Wa that came out the massive wreck. Yelich can't remember how many tracks were on it but I think so. They're sort of not to make it about finances but that's sort of what drives the format really technology in the way you monetize technology so it's easier to monetize a single or it has been but at the same time all of a sudden it's like people do want more and so if you're able to put out more content than people will listen all the way through. I think my fans like albums and maybe because I've always been more of an album an album artist. I like albums to list vinyls great because it's hard to to flip tip from songs song on Vinyl. Put the needle down. You've gotTA listen all the way through. I love that you know I mean for me like growing up like a lot of my favorite songs. Were not my favorite songs right away. I had to hear them three or four times before I really connected to the song and I don't think that happens as much anymore. With a singles culture you know and I and the algorithms it's almost like like sugar like a SEC. We put more sugar in the bread. More sugar in the meet at a point is just all sugar you know so. I guess it's a both anti Santa like it's a singles culture and an album culture. I think people bounce back and forth and probably when you hear a single and you fall in love with that artist you just want more material anyway but it it is a little more difficult to maintain people's attention and putting out singles is great because it's like posting on instagram. You forgot what I posted yesterday but a better post something today so some some people full put out like a single a month or a single week I in the future. I may put out albums dancing girls. I'm considering that now. That has studio my house. I'm put out a record and then put out your yeah singles that aren't connected to the ring throughout the year. You know so yeah I don't know. I don't know where it's going yeah. That'd be fun fun to watch listen. It's fun. It's fun to get in you know these kinds of prestige shows through that either might make it or might not but at least there's a lot of content out there.
