GunDudes Episode 241: Interview with Glen Tate, author of the 299 Days series

“I was just thinking about Mr. Belvedere. Things just pop into my head.”

“It’s like squeezing a frog. What? You haven’t done that?”

“Oh! This might interest Tom, because it’s weird!”

We almost didn’t get this one out because of technical problems, but we were able to get back in touch with the author of the 299 Days series, Glen Tate, to talk about Book 5.  Which introduces the untouchable trio +1 (that’s us)!

What we did with guns this week

  1. Mark Housekeeper’s father had a birthday and “came into  possession of” a brand new Rossi Model 92 .357, an excellent little carbine. Of course they went shooting with it.
  2. Tommy ordered his LaserLyte Laser Trainer Target
    and a Laserlyte Laser Trainer 9mm Cartridge for his gazillion 9mm pistols that he owns. He took his kids shooting.
  3. Joe the Web Guy has been hounding Senator’s Hatch and Lee about the UN “Weapons Ban” Treaty. FINALLY Senator Lee joined the team and as the 34th co-sponsor of a resolution opposing the Treaty, essentially blocking the ratification of said Treaty.

  5. Uprising USACrusader Weaponry: Training, custom weapons, and so much more! Great quality products with “baked-in” Slipstream permanent lubricant (it’s not really “baked-in”, that’s why we used quotation marks — it’s actually better than that).
  6. Lone Wolf Distributors: Do anything to your Glock that you could possibly imagine. Glock barrels, cut barrels, ejectors, extractors, laser etched stuff, all you could want and more!
  7. Concealment Solutions Holsters: The most comfortable holsters that you’ve ever worn. Try them. We think you’ll like them.
