It’s new guns and a place to safely store them, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk (R) Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

Champion Shooter Rob Leatham drops by Gun Talk Sunday with news on the Springfield Armory 3.8 compact XDm in .45ACP. He’s tested it out and has a full range report. Plus, a magazine promo (www.springfieldpromo.com/) and a big sale announcement! For more info on the newest XDm offering, check out www.the-m-factor.com/html/specs_11.html.

Jeff Creamer, Managing Director for Sig Sauer, Inc., stops in with info on a military firearm that the general public can now own: The Sig Sauer P226 9mm pistol used by the U.S Navy is commercially available as the MK25. Visit www.sigsauer.com/CatalogProductDetails/p226-navy.aspx for details.

A lifetime warranty is something that isn’t offered too much anymore. Liberty Safe offers one on every safe they sell, and Jamey Skousen will tell you all about it. Safes from Liberty Safe have survived tornadoes, fires and home invasions, plus a few more extreme tests like dynamite and a 100-ft drop. More can be found at www.libertysafe.com.

Also on Gun Talk this Sunday, the last stops of the Remington VERSA MAX tour. On Friday, Nov. 25, go shoot the new shotgun at Sportsman's Warehouse in Southhaven, MS from 6am to 12pm, and the Bass Pro Shops in Memphis, TN on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th. Find out more at www.remington.com/pages/community/versa-max-ontour.aspx. It’s also the last week to enter the “Waterfowl Win” giveaway - Enter to win at www.guntalk.com/contest.

Hard to believe that any polymer frame 45 could be easier to shoot than a 1911 commander.

Been foggy here early, but turning out nice by late morning. Got to go renew my ccw next month, 4hr class with range time. Haven’t decided which gun to qualify with (any is OK), so I took my Glock G26 and my Colt Series 80 out for a couple hundred rounds.

The Colt wins hands down. The G26 is accurate, but the Colt is many times more. Don’t want to go to school and look like a fool.

Fantastic deal on XD9 and XD40 here;

Plus right now Springfield has a bonus of 3 free mags and 1 mag holster:

Best deal I’ve found all year.

We got a hell of a deal on it. Picked it up NIB for $295 plus tax.

A new local gun shop was running a promotion for Black Friday (and through Monday) and was selling all Ruger products for $3 over cost.

Funny thing is, I went in expecting to pay about $400 for an LCR because she has always felt more comfortable with revolvers. We handled and looked at everything. In the end, this one was her choice.

It appears to be a very well made weapon. The DAO trigger pull is very easy and smooth (as opposed to the horrible trigger on my KelTec P11). It comes standard with Hogue grips. Came with only 1 mag but also came with both a flat and pinky extender mag base.

The only real negative (to me) is the slide mounted safety. Who needs a safety on a DAO pistol? Besides, she's a south paw so there is no easy way she could work the stupid thing.

The only other negative is strictly personal choice. I don't like the thin single stack grip. I like a thick grip. But that's a moot point anyway because it's her gun and she likes it.

Unfortunately, we won't be able to provide a range report for probably a couple of weeks. I'm heading out of state tomorrow morning for business travel all week. Won't get home til Friday night and then Saturday is the 1st shotgun season here in Iowa.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the purchase. I believe they are running the special Ruger pricing through Monday. Let me know if you'd like me to forward their website link.

That is a great price!
I was going to ask about the DAO trigger. I see that it is 7lbs

I prefer SA/DA but DAO is fine IF it is a smooth pull.

This guy Tom calls any American that stands by the words. Shall not infringe. An extremist. This guy defends leftist aka progressive gun hater gun control laws. He has not once called for the removal of gun control laws.

Tom Gresham is always fighting for our 2nd amendment rights.
He has been critical of guys like Jim Zumbo who think we don’t need AR 15’s.

WTF?

You're kidding, right? He's very pro 2nd amendment.

Fer crying out loud, Tom even supports full legalization of silencers.

You may recall I was looking at the EAA SAR .45 `boat anchor.’ Will keep my big CZ and went with this instead.
I plan on shooting it when it stops raining. Lousy weather here in NE IN last couple days, and I’ve been studying the manual.
FYI: Sportsman’s Guide sells a nice Ruger branded clip-on belt holster that is a good fit. I’m looking for a pocket holster, probably Galco horsehide.
And Ruger gives you one mag. One gunwriter said to stay away with Sellier Bellot ammo, everything else is good, esp. Hornady. Ruger says to stay away from +P.

“Tom Gresham is always fighting for our 2nd amendment rights.”
How? By defending gun control laws. That require a permit. Before a person can exercise a right.
Simple solution. Next time gun talk is on. Ask ole Tom. Which gun control laws does he want removed.

Look. I am not here to defend Tom Gresham.
I am doing the same thing as him, I am promoting gun culture in the country and defending our 2nd amendment rights.

I don’t like the notion that you have to apply for CCW or pay fees to the State of Feds, but I will take that over not being able to carry at all.

I don’t like paying fees for Car registration either, but there it is.
I don’t like paying taxes, but there it is.

More than once, I’ve heard Tom comment about the law in Vermont that doesn’t require a permit, and say that’s the way it should be.

It took a long time for all these anti-gun laws to be put into place, and they won’t be eliminated overnight. We need to choose our battles carefully.

Your comment got me to look in her manual. Page 12 does say not to feed it a steady diet of +P.

With a platform this light, standard 9mm is plenty powerful enough.
