Episode 84 – A Mixed Bag of Gun Talk.

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. It’s too late for you to mail the money but you can still use a debit or credit card. Drawing is this Friday Sept. 17th.  Thanks for supporting this show, The Gun Rights Radio Network and The Second Amendment Foundation!

Episode 83 – Calling your shots.

Calling your shots is an advanced shooting skill. On this show, I bring back Steve Z again for another interview. He was on episode 79 if you recall. We talk about “calling your shots.” I have to admit, I’m still not sure if I do it, or how to do it, but if you really want to be good at competitive shooting and in my opinion, defensive shooting, I think it would be good for you to get to the level of being able to call your shots. We also talk about Brian Enos’ book, Practical Shooting, Beyond Fundamentals and forum. In the first segment I share some more listener feedback that continues to roll in. Also remember there’s only one week left to the “Freedom Raffle” so quit procrastinating and support my show, the Gun Rights Radio Network and the Second Amendment Foundation.

Thanks for downloading and listening.

Episode 82 – Close Range Gunfighting – Day 2

Day two reviewed. More good stuff including getting off the X and working a flashlight into the fight. Several different ways to use the light, not a rail mounted light, a handheld flashlight. Faking my position with the way I hold the light that was fun. Then we worked a lot on 180 degree threats! In other words, shooting 3 bad guys in front of me, then doing an after action assessment, then check 360 (SUL) then advancing toward the bad guys behind me and shooting them. Had to do a slide lock reload (emergency reload) while constantly moving because there was no cover. Also more shooting inside 10 yards without using sights! After this course sights are not so important to me anymore. We also did some IDPA style shooting, started by shooting on the move then take cover switch to left hand shooting from one side then right hand shooting from the other side then 3 more bad guys on move. Absolutely good training that you simply can’t get anywhere else. Glenn Matthews is a good instructor. About 250 rounds shot on day two. I will take their FoF class next spring. I got some good interviews while I was there, listen in and enjoy.

I also cover an email from a listener about gun laws in Puerto Rico.

Episode 80- First time Glock shooter vs. first time Beretta shooter.

What happens when someone shoots a Glock for the first time and when someone shoots a Beretta for the first time? Tune in to find out. James and I went to a Fort Worth shooting range. There’s a lot of talk about the grip angle of a Glock and the DA/SA trigger of a Beretta being difficult to shoot. We tried our best to do some myth busting. It’s not a scientific test, but at least an attempt to show what first time shooters of each gun can experience. James shot my Glock 19 and I shot his Beretta PX4 subcompact.

Thanks for listening, don’t forget the Freedom Raffle, time is running out! Also remember to join me at the Gun Rights Radio Network Forum.
