096 This Podcast is Surgeon General Approved!

Rich Carmona’s story is one that should have been in Reader’s Digest before it was in the ProArms Podcast.  Born poor in the barrio, he worked his way up from Green Beret medic to pioneer of the SWAT physician concept to Surgeon General of the United States.  But here’s what brings him to ProArms.

In 1999, while off-duty, Dr. Carmona encountered a mad dog murderer who was about to claim his second victim, a woman he was trying to carjack.  Carmona intervened, and when the criminal opened fire on him, the good doctor shot back and killed him.

We at the ProArms Podcast are honored to present the story of a doctor who used his expertise with a Colt .45 automatic to save the life of a soon-to-be victim, as well as his own.  We’ll never know how many more lives were saved when Dr. Carmona’s courageous action put a permanent end to a crazed killer’s rampage.

 

095 George Zimmerman and Don West

Observing the somber lessons of the recent fifth anniversary of the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman incident, we at the ProArms Podcast present George Zimmerman’s own story in his own words.  It was presented in February 2016 by Zimmerman and his co-counsel, Don West, at a Massad Ayoob Group MAG-40 class in Florida. This intense two-hour presentation offers the evidence the mainstream media didn’t touch.  This is one of the most compelling things we’ve ever posted at the ProArms Podcast.

In case you are not familiar with or need refreshing on the incident.

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.
