047 Ed Brown and Jared Reston

This week we have two very different interviews both recorded at the SHOT show in January.

First we have Mas interviewing Ed Brown of Here’s a review of the gun by Walt Rauch.

The second interview that Mas does is the latest in our series of interviews with people who have been in armed encounters and survived to share their stories with us. This time Mas interviews Jared Reston a Jacksonville Florida Police Officer who not only survived seven hits with a .45, he was able to win the fight. He was most definitely saved by wearing his bullet-proof vest but he still received some very serious gunshot wounds. Listen to his chilling story. Once again, as in all of these stories, there are many lessons here to be learned. I am just going to list a few links to Jared’s story here.

We enjoy all of the Podcasts on the Gun Rights Radio Network and participate in the forum but the GRRN needs our help to continue. As we add more Podcasts to the network and new people join the forum our resourced are getting sapped. We at the ProArms Podcast never ask you for donations because we have a wonderful sponsor, the Pro Arms Store, but the GRRN relies on subscriptions to pay it’s bills. So in order to help raise some funds for the GRRN we are offering a chance to win $800.00 worth of training from the newly formed Massad Ayoob Group. That amount will cover the tuition for 4 or 5 day MAG 40 course. We will be accepting entries through September 30 2010.

One last comment: We are still in the process of moving everything over to our new servers for the podcast and are trying to make a few improvements / adjustments too. For instance the MP3 file for this Podcast is considerably smaller. If you notice and problems with the audio portion of this episode please let us know over at the Gun  Rights Radio Network.
