0266 - An Interview with Julie Golob and Jerry Miculek of Team Smith and Wesson

/
The best in the business are at SHOT Show and there is no doubt that it can be tough to gain access to some of the top names. SHOT Show is a busy time. Julie Golob and I started to try and get a time scheduled weeks ahead of SHOT but with both of our crazy schedules finding a common time was tough, but finally we made it. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I showed up at the Smith & Wesson booth and had the chance to interview both Julie and Jerry Miculek. Today we will talk with two champions who still find time for family, the outdoors and folks like you and me.

0265 - An Interview with John Paul of JP Enterprises

/
My primary AR-15 is a JP rifle. I bought a JP for several reasons: First, JP has taken a bunch of time over the years to give me personal customer support. When I say JP, I am talking about the people at JP, but also John Paul. When someone takes the time to invest in me as a customer, I become a loyal customer. Second, I started out as a competitive shooter and JP dominated the competitive market where I played my gun games. I know that competition isn't battle, but I also know that competition can be a grueling test ground for combative gear. JP has proven that their rifles will continue to perform in the harshest of conditions. Finally, with JP, I had the opportunity to have a rifle built to my exact specifications. I hope you enjoy today's podcast and if you are shopping for a new AR, give JP a look.

0264 - Interview with Stacey Nagey of Primary Weapons Systems

/
The AR-15 is currently one of the most popular weapons platforms out there and like anything out there that is hot, it is stuck into a bunch of gunnisms. AR vs. AK, 5.56 vs. 6.whatever, 16" vs. 10.5", and probably one of the biggest out there right now, DI vs piston. There are lots of manufacturers out there building the best rifles they can with all the options customers can possibly think of and of course all the choices are fueling the fire. Today, our goal is to smother the blase and try to actually understand why we might want a piston gun. PWS is going to help us with that task.

Rob Pincus has been a driving force in defensive shooting instruction for the past few years. His program Combat Focus Shooting is one of the most taught handgun systems around. Rob doesn't just focus on the shooting, He also closely examines combat and how what we do on the range will or will not apply to fighting, and is constantly examining instruction to find the most efficient way to deliver content to his varied audience. Whether you are an expert or a novice, a student or a teacher, Rob is someone you might want to pay attention to.

0261 - An Interview with Ray Kohout Designer of the Heizer Defense Double Tap

/
Some folks have dubbed the Double Tap a fancy derringer. I think this is a pretty narrow view. Speaking of narrow, .58" in width. The Double Tap is aimed at the professionals and those that are serious about self-defense. Its size, design, materials and caliber all speak to its purpose as a fighting tool. Its innovative design, and serious price tag distinguish it from other small guns only time will tell if consumers are able to do the same.

0259 - An Interview with Author and Revolver Expert Grant Cunningham

/
My interview with Grant Cunningham proves my point well that SHOT Show is an opportunity to gather knowledge as much as it is an opportunity to drool over new gear. Grant does a wonderful job of concisely sizing up some of the issues that folks are confronted with when they start to look at revolvers and how they fit into modern combatives.

As far as professional athletes go, action shooters have to be the cream of the crop. There are all kinds of reasons for this that really don't matter. I had a great time sitting down with Max Michel today and we talked about his career, his sponsors. Enjoy the Interview, and have a great day!
