The court of public opinion, internet usage for gun carries and listener voice mails regarding SIGs, Glocks and pocket .380’s are all topics in this episode.
This starts with a review of the Taurus 709 slim 9mm pistol, submitted by a listener named Todd. Then I discuss several voice mails regarding a SIG pistol, Walther PPK pistol, concealed carry in New Jersey, accidental discharges, getting started in IDPA and more. Thanks for listening.
This midweek MSP (Modern Self Protection) podcast hosted by Ben Branam is a review of the Kel Tec P-32 pocket pistol. Ben does a nice job of discussing the pro’s and con’s of this pocket mousegun. I used to have a P3AT and it’s almost identical to the P-32. So if you’re considering a pocket pistol from Kel Tec you might gain a lot from this review. I also start the episode with some listener voice mails. Thanks for downloading and listening. Bob and Ben.
Subcompact guns are extremely popular for concealed carry. So this episode is about the advantages and disadvantages of small semi automatics, revolvers and other guns called subcompact guns. We analyzed Kahr PM9, Glock 26 and J frame revolvers and small .380 autos. Jon Payne also joins me for an interview about subcompact handguns. Thanks for downloading and listening.

You never know when and where someone who want’s to harm you, will strike. Often times we are in a compromised position or perhaps your attacker is even so close, that they are at arm’s length or even closer! Violent encounters don’t happen like a competition match. There’s no timer, no scoring system and no re-shoot. Not to make fun of competition at all, because as you know, I totally enjoy it and support the shooting sports. But the main topic of this show is what to think about when shooting at arm’s length distance. So I reviewed and excellent article by Jon Payne of Suarez International on this subject. Some of this is from my personal experience during the training I recently took under him. Also, Jon Hodoway has more to say on how to pick a firearms trainer and ammunition ballistics. You’ll also learn about the Wall Drill. A dry fire practice technique taught by an Army Reserve shooting instructor. I also cover some listener emails on subjects like the Glock 26 as a back up gun and appendix carry. Finally, you’ll hear my review of the Smith and Wesson model 39-2. I recently had a chance to shoot one for the first time. Links for all of these can be found on the Gun Rights Radio Network forum. Thanks for listening, Bob Mayne, HandgunWorld Show.
More discussion on rental guns. After going to the range with James Kimmerle, I did an interview with him. We discussed our thoughts about a Glock .357Sig, FN 9mm and Beretta PX4 sub compact 9mm. At the beginning of the show I cover some information on a recent back up gun match I shot with my P380. We also discussed James’ new High Noon Public Secret left handed holster for his PX4. We also spent some time discussing the Tucson shooting and why the anti gunners and media have it all wrong. I also make an announcement about a new fund raising effort for the 2nd Amendment foundation.

Most of this show is listener feedback but I also give a summary of The Real World Gun match I’ll be shooting this Thanksgiving weekend. So stay tuned next week for the results of what happened. However, I do explain the differences between Real World Gun and IDPA. I also answer listener’s questions about holsters, throwing yogurt at vehicles, arm extension, carrying a Kahr, carrying a Taurus, tuckable holsters, practice techniques and more. Please remember to join me at the Gun Rights Radio Network Forum, YouTube, Facebook and Shooters Legion. Be thankful you live in an area where you can own and carry a gun to defend yourself (if you do) this Thanksgiving Holiday and have a great weekend!

Also tune in for a special announcement about this show and don’t forget about my new YouTube video on my Glock 19 with TFO sights!

I define what is a mousegun, what calibers are available, what ammo to use in them and how to carry mouseguns. I own Kahr 380. I’ll discuss that too. I also answer a listener’s question about RBCD ammo.
