This week is about women and concealed carry, and some of the things women need to consider when carrying a gun. I interviewed Tracy Thronburg, firearms instructor, competitive shooter and concealed carrier.
Gun Reviews! New guns on the market like the Walther CCP, Glock 42, 41, Remington R51 and the Nighthawk T4 1911 pistol.
So for all of the hardware fanatics, this episode is for you. My special guest discusses these guns that he’s actually shot!
Inexpensive revolvers are the main topic of this episode. Many people who are on a tight budget but also have the need to obtain a firearm for self defense should consider an inexpensive revolver. This episode features a special guest, Glen Tate to discuss this subject. You’ll also hear some excellent listener voice mails and my response.
This is a sequel to the Women and Guns podcast I did last year. But I felt compelled to put out more information on this subject because I feel strongly about women carry a gun for self protection. So, I interviewed a woman who is a firearms trainer, excellent shooter and big advocate for a woman’s right to defend herself with a firearm. Guy, pay attention to this episode if you have a woman in your life that is interested in concealed carry and shooting. If she’s thinking about what type of firearm to buy, this will be a good episode for her to listen to. Andrea Clark’s website is called F.A.S.T. Defense (Firearms, Awareness and Safety training.) I also answer some listener questions in this episode. Please remember to join the GRRN forum if you haven’t already. Also, version 2 of my “Shooter’s Club” Exclusive Podcast will be releasing on March 15th. Check the website at HandgunWorld.com for details and subject matter. Thanks for downloading andlistening and safe shooting.
Revolvers are a good choice for a self defense handgun. They are not my first choice, but at the request of a listener, I did this show on my experience shooting 2 particular revolvers. James Kimmerle and I went to a range, rented 2 .357 magnum revolvers and we give you our straight talk review on them.
- Simplicity of the revolver, good or bad?
- Firing a revolver from a pocket.
- Capacity of a self defense revolver.
- Reliability pros and cons.
- Revolver myth busting.
- Is 5-6 round capacity enough?
- Every time you pull the trigger?
- Cost vs. features.

Many people, including lots of police officers, private citizens and military personnel, think that they can religiously practice pistol shooting to improve their marksmanship skills without the benefit of a shooting coach. Many become discouraged when their scores don’t improve or actually get worse over time. The problem is that incorrect shooting practices condition a person to continue to shoot poorly. Every time you practice shooting, it’s important that you do it correctly. You must constantly assess your level of performance and correct problems immediately before they become bad habits.
- Perfecting your pistol shooting skills and improving accuracy.
- Shooting low and left?
- Shooting high and right?
- Correcting basic shooting errors.
- Milking the Grip.
- Ball and Dummy Technique.
- Press the Trigger.
Many more families are taking up shooting as a family hobby. In this podcast, I talk about why families are shooting together and play part of an interview I recently did with Lisa Bedford, The Survival Mom. She’s a strong concealed carry advocate and blogger too. In the first half of this show I do listener Q&A. Keep the comments coming! Also, I discuss a little bit about how I record this show, why women should carry, open carry, “man with a gun,” a little more on RBCD ammo and more…
- The new Smith and Wesson SD series of pistols.
- How I record this show when I’m driving.
- Listener emails and feedback, plus my answers.
Thanks for listening,
