083 The Evil Princess Interviews The Queen of Snark

Tam KeelWe are back with a whole new site and some podcasts dug out of the vault. this is an interview we did last summer with Tam Keel a writer for SWAT and Concealed Carry Magazines as well as her own very popular blog View From the Porch.

We met with Tam in Rochester, IN where we talked about Guns, writing, the Internet, motorcycles and a whole lot more.

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.

064 ProArms Broadcast – Women in the Gun Media Part Deux

First off we visit with Suzi Huntington the Editor of American Cop Magazine. Suzi shares with us her vast experience of being a police officer especially being a woman in a “mans” world. Then we talk about  her newest career, since she “retired” (as if anyone who works so hard can be considered “retired”), as editor of American Cop Magazine.

Second we talk with our good Friend Kathy Jackson, we wanted to talk about her new book The Cornered Cat: A Woman’s Guide to Concealed Carry.  As usual we strayed from the topic at hand to talk about shopping and training and some Christmas gift ideas.

044 Rangelog, HoJutSu & Federal Ammunition

This week we’re back with a trio of interviews from the SHOT Show.

First we talk with Tim Brandt from Federal Premium about new ammunition they are developing and some old ammunition.

Next we talk to Jeff Hall who is the founder of Hojutsu, the art of gunnery.

Our third segment brings you one of the developers of a new training tool called Rangelog. It’s an online training tool for shooters.   We get a lot of questions asking us how to train, what kind of drills to do, how do you know when you are getting better, etc.  Rangelog looks like the answer to most of these questions, it is a website where you can keep track of your training drills, chart your progress and much more. You can enter your own drills or search their library of drills to find new training drills for you to try.  Listen to this episode as Andrew Hill tells about this Website and a special offer for ProArms Podcast Listeners.

020 TALKING TO THE INDUSTRY

Woo-hoo! Here’s our second and final podcast out of the 2009 SHOT Show in Orlando, Florida.

Good news: we got some GREAT, exclusive interviews with heavy hitters in the firearms world!

Listen to Scott O’Brien, head of Safariland’s combined products group, explaining why an era has ended and Bianchi holsters, that once competed with Safariland holsters, will now be “Bianchi by Safariland,” etc.

Listen to Charles Brown, speaking for Hi-Point, Charter Arms, and Chiappa explain where those manufacturers position those “entry level” guns, and why. (Hint: you’ll be surprised at how much of the market share Hi-Point holds.)

Listen to Justin Moon, designer of the Kahr pistol series and head of the company, tell the story of the Kahr product and introduce you to their new, ten-ounce, mini-.380 pistol.

…And, finally, listen to The Great One, multiple time world champion Rob Leatham, tell his own story as it has never been told before! Be prepared for gun advice from the World Champ that may shock you!

Bad news: we did the interviews amid a Tower of Babel of almost 50,000 people talking simultaneously in a convention center, with all sorts of electronic interference. Yes, you’ll be able to hear everything that was being said…but not, it won’t have the sound quality of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing in a studio.
