GunDudes Episode 282: Interviews from Shot Show 2014

Topic: Interviews from shot show 2014

  • This week we quickly got together to talk about what we did in guns this week and we play a couple of Nicks Interviews from shot show 2014 with Bench Made, Liberty Ammunition, and Sport Ear.

Awesome quotes from this episode

  • “It’s so early… should we get some coffee or somesing?”
  • “I’m listening to you on the radio.” (click)
  • “Holy crap! 299 Days, it’s happening now!”
  • “I don’t like your kind. I wonder what you taste like.”
  • “I don’t have the Stan, white-man afro … to pad my head.”
  • “… who happens to be lead-free, cuz’ we ain’t tree-huggers!”
  • “It’s like Kenny knows the industry or something.”

What we did with guns this week

  • Mark Housekeeper put a new fiber optic front sight from Gemini Customs on his SP101, and is finally caught up with the influx of shipments from Shot Show 2014. He also met a bunch of famous pro-gun folks there.
  • Kenny bought a pair of Glock 42s, but only one of those is his.
  • Nick met with the Freedom Agenda reps in Seattle and had dinner with Glen Tate. He also heated up to counter the Bloomberg agenda that’s dumping tons of money into anti-gun legislation up there.
  • Stan is sporting a very Russian-from-the-Saint moustache, and is going on a shooting date with his wife.
  • Carl feels like this week has been like playing a country song backwards. His XDS came back. He purchased a new gun, got 5 boxes of 550-rounds of .22LR in trade for an AR lower, is wearing an ankle holster, and he’s actually going out on a date with his wife!
  • Joe (already a Precinct Chair and County Delegate) got appointed to his county’s Republican Party Ethics Committee, then elected to Chair it; then was appointed as the Legislative District Vice Chair. Talk about “getting involved”! Joe also spotted a wall full of MagHolders at his local gun store: Red Dot.

Guns in the News

  1. Carl (no, not our Carl) sent in a story from Boston where two masked-men broke into a home. One was shot and killed by the homeowner. The other was later apprehended by police. Unfortunately, the homeowner was taken into custody while the police check out the validity of his firearms license… Yes, folks, in Boston if two masked men break into your house and try to rob you, YOU, the victim, get arrested when you defend yourself and your family. Way to go Boston. 🙁

Misfire Award™

  • Sent in by Jessica of Mag40 fame: a man who tried to rob somebody with a fake gun is in the hospital after he was shot by his intended victim.
