Sorry we’ve been away……We had such a great Time at SHOT 2017….

Sorry. We have been on a break due to various health related issues for both Greg and I. We have actually been back recording shows for about Three weeks, which we wil post later tonight or tomorrow. I wanted to get you all caught up on our SHOT SHOW 17 experience. It started out Monday night withn a party held by the Firearms Policy Colition and the Firearms Policy conference, along with Battle Comp and Bravo Company! It was interesting, and we got to meet a long time Facebook friend E. Alan Normandy of Battle Comp, who Lives just over the Hill from me in Prescott Arizona. The Party was at the Leatherneck Club(Sorry no Toys!) a  Marine Corps Bar that is a virtual History of the US Marines, and anyone in Vegas shoud go there for a glass and a sandwich to take in the sights on their walls. Too bad this is the only Pic I Got! More in the Next Post……

Agenda Firearms Chat Podcast 12-17-16 Holiday Edition pt 1

But just a bit of 2A news-
The Hollywood reporter took a look into the hippcritical attitude Hollywood has toward the Firearms Industry yet many Hollywood actors use Guns in their movies, and companies like Independent Studio Servicies who has been making Hollywood look “Correct” with regards to firearms for many years….

Gift Guide show-What to Buy you favorite 2A person…….

Nothing beats a good gift like a self defense pistol!!

Ruger’s new American Compact(MSRP$439), or for the 1911 lovers, Ruger’s SR1911 commander in 9MM(MSRP $979 street price $875-$900), or one of ROCK island’s 1911 or 2011 models..($399 and up)The LC9s & SPro Models now come with Optional Colored Polymer Frames(MSRP$329-Street $299)

If you really have a few $$$ to spend, Daniel Defense’s New DD5V2 in .308,..well add a nice optic like the Burris MTAC…$ TBD but a little Birdie told me $1200 or so)

If your thinking of reaching out a little less distant, the American Tactical Mil Sport 9MM AR-15 pattern Carbine is your ticket(MSRP$899 but street for under $800) bust since is comes with only one Mag, load up on Glock pattern 9MM mags!

Magazines-You can never have enough mags right? has it all, AR,AK, Glock,1911, MagPulPMags….even Shotgun Drums for the Saiga and Mka11919 AR-12Ga 10Rd Mags….

Ammo-Various companies are constantly upgrading their lines or introducing new products….
Browning’s new Black Label SD ammo will surely bring you what you need in an SD round, As Will RUGER & POLYCASE’s NEW ARX round. I just shot a Box of This Tuesday, 10 Rounds into Steel, 10 rounds into Plywood, and 5 into Melons(and they did not survive 🙂

A new project I’m working on from next term’s Gunsmithing class is an 18” 10/22 from parts, with a tri-pod and hand crank actuator, 110 rd drum, and faux suppressor….
