Recently, Paul Lathrop of the Polite Society podcast attended Shot Show 2015. He got some great interviews with major manufacturers on what’s new for 2015. Plus I add my comments on each one.
Since ammunition is so hard to find and so expensive, I decided to record some thoughts about ammo buying. Did you know about the proposed “ammunition background check Act of 2013?” I also include some information about what handguns to consider purchasing. Other topics include why we probably have the ammo crisis and how anti gun politicians are going after ammo too. I also cover some listener voice mails including a Glock 27 review.
Should you use a compensated or ported gun for concealed carry? I received an email from a listener about this subject, so Ben and I got together to answer that question. This is a subject I’ve never talked about on this podcast, so I was thankful for the emailed question. We also did a short review on Springfield XD and XDS pistols.
More listener voice mails this week. Topics include .22 ammo, armed guards in schools, magazine springs, .38spcl ammo and revolvers and more.
Due to the ammo shortage and high pricing, I’ve decided to start practicing and training more with .22lr. So I recently purchased 2 conversion kits. One for my Glock and one for my AR-15. This episode is a review of both kits and the reason behind purchasing them.
Modifying your handgun is something almost every handgun owner decides to do. Many experts in the field of self defense and the legalities of doing so, recommend not modifying your carry gun. Especially the trigger. Sights are the most common modification. Whether you have a 1911 or a polymer wonder, or a SIG, Beretta, Taurus or whatever, it seems as though there’s so much talk and decision making that goes into the modification of one’s handgun. Even revolver shooters tend to favor trigger jobs. In this episode I start with responding to a few listener emails, then get into an interview with Steve Zopfi about trigger modifications. We don’t talk much about competition shooting, mostly we discussed modifying carry guns. He discusses his STI and his Glock.
