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.
In this Episode Mas interviews Anthony Colandro the owner of Gun For Hire in Woodland Hills, New Jersey. If you ever find yourself in the New York / New Jersey metropolitan area you really should check them out. In the meantime you can listen to Anthony and Sandy on Gun for Hire Radio.
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.
We are cross-posting an episode of the Road Gunner Podcast here because this one was a joint effort with ProArms when we visited Nighthawk Custom (OK, Unnamed Trucker did do all the recording and editing work). You can catch his podcasts here at http://roadgunnerpodcast.com/
This year it have been particularly difficult getting the podcasts posted, not for lack of good material but for lack of time to be able to sit down at the computer. This podcast was made possible with a lot of editing help from our friend Miguel. Okay, he did all the editing. You may know Miguel from his blog; The Gun Free Zone or from Concealed Carry Magazine, or all the other places he haunts on the internet, we owe him tons of thanks for helping us to get back on track. Thanks Miggy!
This podcast was recorded at a Continuing Legal Education class in Washington presented by ACLDN CLE page.

Larry Hickey Case http://armedcitizensnetwork.org/images/stories/Hickey%20Booklet.pdf
It was world news a few months ago when a crazed man released his menagerie of wild animals upon his community, and then committed suicide. It was left to the Muskingum County, Ohio Sheriff’s Department under Sheriff Matt Lutz to contain the dangerous animals before they could maul or kill citizens.
A link is provided here for the report by the Sheriff’s Department. Here, we present the story told by those who were there. A detective who had to blast a lion at close range with a 12 gauge. A deputy who killed a charging bear with a single shot from his Glock .40, just an instant before the bear reached him. The patrol and SWAT deputies who hunted through the night with their patrol rifles and SWAT precision rifles, until the last threat to their community was extinguished. And the high Sheriff, who had to answer for it all.
Thanks to our friend, associate, and consultant Keith Jones, who participated in the discussion.
