Awesome quotes from this episode

  • “Stop spooning!”
  • Stan’s wife: “Oh great, I’m getting gun gifts now.”
  • “You made him a bench, too?!”
  • “You know, it’s growin’ on me.”
  • “How to pick up women — or shemales — at Shot Show.”
  • “They’re just a hoot to shoot! … But that that with a grain of salt because I am a Glock fan boy.”
  • “I am a flashlight junkie.”

What we did with guns this week

  • Tommy is looking at what modifications he’s going to make to his CZ, and he’s been watching a LOT of YouTube videos on the new guns announced at 2014 Shot Show.
  • Steve has a confession about his powder bar on his reloading rig, and he applied the same mistake to Carl’s.
  • Stan bought a couple bug-out bags from LA Police Gear for himself and his wife, and some 2-round magazine extensions. She’s not too thrilled about it: “Oh great, I’m getting gun gifts now.”
  • Carl got someone new into reloading.
  • Nick’s website crashed — for three days! But now, after a ton of money, a server move, and a bunch of chaos, it’s back and faster than ever! He’s also got up and running! Woot! And, went to 2014 Shot Show.

Guns in the News

  1. Darrin sent in a story about a story from a Dollar General store in Dallas County where an robber started taking the patrons into the breakroom. One customer drew his own sidearm, fired one shot, and stopped the armed robbery. A Good Guy with a Gun was the hero — go figure.
  2. Brian sent in a story from overseas. BBC news reported a story from India about a gun designed for Indian women. It’s a .32 and was named after a student who was gang-raped and later died from her injuries. The BBC says it’s an “insult to the memory of the victim”. Apparently the BBC would rather have women be raped than be able to effectively defend themselves.

Misfire Award™

  • Joe in New York sent in a misfire candidate. Stan apologized for the GunDudes hijacking his misfire award from last week. This week he sent in a story about a felon who was arrested after having been seen shooting two rifles on the TV show Doomsday Preppers. Felons can’t possess firearms. Not only that, he said his rifles were for robbing his neighbors in a disaster scenario.
