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.

077 Kitty Richards on IDPA and Fashion

Catching up with Kitty Richards is nearly impossible, she is everywhere. It has been said that “if you shoot IDPA you know Kitty Richards”

We caught her early early one morning (before work, eeek!) for this ProArms Broadcast. She gave us an update  on that is happening with the Tiger Teams and how the process of the revisions of the rules is progressing and what to expect in the future.

Next we talked about the Women’s Concealed Carry Fashion Show held in Hudson, NY.

Full coverage can be found on the Armed Candy Blog.

Kitty talked about the Flashbang.

076 Bonus Episode with The Road Gunner Podcast

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/

075 Legal Issues and the Colorado Shooting

We are back!!!

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.

Massad Ayoob on Stand Your Ground, Police Chiefs, and Trayvon Martin

The reason Gail (who will never do this unarmed again) was walking on an abandoned railroad bed in Chicago.


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.
