This episode is about first impressions of guns, holsters and various concealed carry items.
Links and Show Notes:
This episode does not have one single topic. A couple of listeners called in some voice mails about 1911’s and a close call with a potential bad guy. Then Ben Branam and I discussed guns we want to purchase, tactical pens, holsters and training. So between my answers to the voice mails and the interview with Ben, it turned into a mixed bag of topics. Links can be found on the GRRN forum. Thanks for listening. Bob Mayne, Handgunworld Podcast.
This week I answer a lot of very good emails regarding concealed carry, handgun modifications, gun control, training and defensive handgun tactics. Also, a listener submitted an excellent audio clip and Levi Myatt from All Temp Tactical Lube, joins me for an interview regarding his new firearm lubricant. Please keep the emails coming and the audio clips coming too. Thanks for downloading and listening. Bob Mayne, HandgunWorld Show
A lot of people think they need to make serious modifications to their gun to be able to shoot it well. A couple weeks ago, a shooting buddy of mine decided to pour about $600 worth of upgrades into his new Glock 21SF, then did a range test to see if he could shoot it better. Listen to this episode to find out the results. Are modifications really worth it? Is there a point of diminishing returns? Would you be better off to spend that same money on ammo and training? Do you need a trigger job? What is the 1,000 round trigger job? These are questions I attempt to answer in my own way on this show. You’ll also hear a brief post match discussion between me and Steve and Rick from the Powerfactor Show. For those of you who have emailed me questions and comments, I’ve also handled some of the backlog of emails I’ve received. Thanks for sending them in.

Indoor IDPA is a different experience than outdoor matches. This episode is a recap of a match I shot last Thursday. I also answer a couple of listener questions about Mili-Tec lubricant and slide play on a Glock. Then I will give you a before and after summary of some stages. I made some mistakes, also achieved some victories. I shot left handed and discussed lots of well designed stages for an indoor match. Shooting on the move, weak hand only shooting, interchanged ammo and shooting a modified Glock 19 in ESP category are subjects I discussed in the “before” segment. Segment 2 is about the results and what happened. I got some malfunction clearance practice and I even shot a magazine of carry ammo on one stage! I’ll tell you all about it. You’ll also hear a preview of next week’s episode with Steve Zopfi again as we discuss Brian Enos’ book Practical Shooting Beyond Fundamentals.

A mixed bag of gun talk is all I could think of to title this podcast. While driving I share some thoughts I have about pistol caliber carbines, sights, belts, holsters, ammo, 20 gauge shotguns, survival guns and more. This is a relatively short show, I’ve been pretty busy this week. Don’t forget to listen to the pistol caliber carbine podcast I did on my survival show. That was in favor of pistol caliber carbines, this show is a reason not to own one. You decide. I do talk about the great many benefits of the Marlin 1894c .357 magnum, buffalo bore ammo, Marlin Camp carbines and more. Don’t forget it’s down to the wire for the Freedom Raffle.

Selecting a rifle for defense is just as hard as selecting a handgun. It’s highly unlikely that citizens in the U.S. will have to use their rifle to fend off zombies, but for the rare situation that would require the use of a rifle, I discuss what to look for, what common choices there are, what ammo types are out there and why you may want to choose them.

Modifying your handgun can be tricky and it’s not easy to do without compromising reliability. In this episode I’ll discuss what types of modifications I do to my carry pistols and competition pistols. As I’ve mentioned, I’m not a gunsmith, but I have learned a few things through trial and error and that’s what I’ll share with you.

Why do handguns jam and malfunction? In this episode I’ll answer that and give you some personal experiences to go with it. Often times it’s not the gun’s fault. Sometimes it is. I’ll explain both and discuss what’s related to ammunition, what’s related to gun parts and what’s the manufactureres fault.
Thanks for listening to the show.

Reliability vs. Accuracy, which is better for a defensive handgun? I tackle that argument and do my best. In this episode I cover some tips on how to achieve both and what to look out for. Also, in segment 2, you will hear a little more about the gun control debate (which never seemss to end.) Then in segment 3 I get back to the reliability vs. accuracy issue.
