To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.  -Richard Henry Lee, 1788

My name is Brian Lockerman, owner of MB Studio Productions.  For as long as I can remember I have been a gun enthusiast.  I grew up shooting and collecting firearms and I am passionate about protecting our 2nd amendment rights because I know this is the right that protects all other rights.  I am not going to tell you that you have to own a gun.  It's not for everyone.  But the push to take away the individual freedom and 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms is rooted in fear and misunderstanding.

Your constitutional rights are threatened because anti-gun people seem to defy all reason and sanity with their beliefs and fears.  Most of them have been taught literally zero about guns, have never held one in their hands, and are terrified by the thought of them.  We can’t approach this perception problem by simply telling our pro-self-protection, pro-gun side of the story.  We have to invite our anti-gun friends to go shooting with someone who is patient, non-judgmental, safe, shows them how to be safe, and who shows them how much fun it is to handle guns and shoot them.  They suddenly are able to view guns differently, and realize that guns are not just owned by radical whackjobs, and they become a lot more open to new information.

 If everyone who loves their gun, gets one person to go to the range and

shows them the positives – we might win over a whole nation. –Lil Chantilly

MB Studio Production's television series, Shoot to Thrill, will be the first show of its kind and will create a dramatic shift in the way many people think about gun ownership!

The way we are going to make meaningful change is by counteracting fear with facts.  Shoot to Thrill will tell the story of millions of Americans who are dedicated to responsible gun ownership.  What do a kindergarten teacher, a small business owner, and a model have in common? They and many others are all in the market for their first firearm and will share their compelling stories on Shoot to Thrill.  These are people who may once have been anti-gun.  Now, whether through an unfortunately terrifying experience with crime or because someone introduced them to shooting in a positive way, they are considering gun ownership for themselves.  Shoot to Thrill walks each client through firearm selection, training, and incorporating their new gun into their everyday lives for sport and self-defense.  By showing real people making real choices in real life, we can overcome the myths and misinformation that plague the debate over our right to be armed.   

On Shoot to Thrill you’ll also discover the art, practice, and skill of archery for hunting and recreation, as well as the world of knife making and collecting, in an engaging, family-friendly format with impressive visual effects.

With your help, we can make this important show happen and get it to a mainstream channel.  We don’t need to convince gun owners that our rights are essential.  The goal for Shoot to Thrill is to win over a whole nation by demonstrating the benefits of being responsibly armed.  Shoot to Thrill is both entertaining, educational, and family friendly, and will appeal to a broader audience than a typical gun enthusiast show.  By illustrating how real Americans come to the decision to become a gun owner, eyes may open, minds may begin to think critically, and we may inspire an honest, informed conversation about the importance of our 2nd amendment rights.  But it will take the financial support of people who are dedicated to the cause to take this project of great magnitude to the next level, so that everyday Americans are given a never-before-seen inside look at the reality of gun ownership.  Public opinion is of enormous significance in the fight for the protection of our rights.  We must come together to make a difference and the time is now!

With your help, we can literally create a show "of the people, by the people, for the people" and maintain creative direction of the project in order to preserve our vision and the integrity of the show's message.

What is our goal?

To raise enough funds to produce and maintain creative direction of six episodes of Shoot to Thrill.

Why is creative direction important?

MB Studio Productions wants to produce Shoot to Thrill without any political, corporate, or network influence, in order to maintain the intended vision of the show, which is to inform with facts, tell real stories about real people, and dispel myths and fears with no agenda other than to demonstrate that gun owners are disciplined, responsible, safety-conscious people who care about their families, friends, and strangers alike.

How will this benefit you?

By inspiring America to ‘take a “2nd” look,’ Shoot to Thrill may change the way people think about guns, gun owners, and the importance of your right to keep and bear arms.
