089 Glock43

And we’re back… This time with a new introduction from Glock. Mas and Gail made a rare visit to the Glock factory in Smyrna, GA. They got to shoot the long-awaited Glock 43 well before the announcement. They held to the non-disclosure agreement, which would have allowed them to talk about it on 3/20/15, but when someone else jumped the gun, Glock took the legal leash off, so here’s the story early.

Gail and Mas shot heck out of the Glock 43, and shot it side by side with the Glock 42 .380 and the Glock 26 9mm. They got a briefing from multiple Glock executives involved in the project, including Dr. Michael Jacquorie, senior executive vice president. You’ll hear about the gun from the Glock insiders themselves, and get a rare look inside the Glock factory in Smyrna, GA.

084 The Bonaci Jewelry Store Attempted Robbery

In May 0f 2013 and armed robber attempted to rob the Bonaci Jewelry Store in Kent, WA. The robber came in with his gun drawn, Bob Bonaci had little time to react but react he did. He performed the indicated response and the robber was found dead on a bench some time later.

There are many lessons to learn from this incident. The first lesson is how fast this can and did happen and how little time you may have to react. We have several videos from a couple of different angles showing how quickly this transpired.

First video is the attempted robbery at real time:

081 Lee Willis and iMarksman

We present two from the vault for this episode. First part is a conversation with a young shooter named Lee Willis and his family that we met about 2 years ago, he has continued to compete and excel since we recorded the interview.

The second segment is about a training aid that we have had for a few years now. This interview is even more timely now than when we recorded it last year since ammo has become harder to find and much more expensive. The iMarksman is a great alternative when you just can’t practice live fire. Gail talks with Andrey Safanyuk about training with the iMarksman.
