Mandeville, LA Its national reciprocity legislation, reloading and custom scopes, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk (R) Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
The need for national reciprocity -- for all states to honor carry permits issued by any state -- has been on the front pages recently as a nursing student and a former Marine both faced felony charges in New York City after trying to check their firearms at the Empire State Building and the 911 Memorial. Both had permits allowing legal carry in their states, and tried to be responsible by checking the firearms with law enforcement officers. Unfortunately, both were arrested for violating New York's Draconian laws, and faced a minimum sentence of more than three years in prison. Only because of the public furor at this injustice were they both able to reach deals allowing them to avoid prison time.
Senators David Vitter (R-LA) and John Thune (R-SD) have introduced S. 2213, a bill which would allow citizens with carry permits, and those from states with Constitutional Carry (no permit needed), to carry in all states. Sen. Vitter joins Tom this Sunday to discuss the bill.

Now, that’s plain cool! Guns and Trains? A collectors dream.
How do you fit that thing into the safe?
Tom will discuss the Trayvon Martin incident.
Perhaps we will get some clarity on this circus tonight.
Heh! I’ve been spending all weekend watching hickok45’s YouTube videos. He’s a pretty good shot.
Who’s gonna steal it?
Photograph of US 14 inch 50-caliber gun on Mk II railway mounting. This model was introduced too late for use in World War I. Date circa. 1918-1921
Hicock45 is a riot and he has been a guest on this show.
Thats no 50 cal. 50MM maybe.
Still gonna need a bigger safe!
Hey there Dave!
National reciprocity is so important.
Without it we aren’t truly free.
When are they going to get around to us disabled veterans? I know all of you “guys” who carry concealed have your issues, but we 100% disabled vets would just like to have a fire are & our rights have been striped by the gov.’t & they may be looking at some of our other rights as well, like voting....
Texas DPS says like .001% of CHL holders commit armed crimes.
It just doesn’t happen
This notion that George Zimmermann is some sort of trigger happy wacko is remote.
Im sorry for your troubles.
Vets get **** for what they gave to the nation.
I spent 6 years in the US sub fleet on fast attack submarines and never even got a GI bill.
Did you see the one when he shot a suppressor/silencer on a Glock?
I had no idea they were legal...
There are plenty of wheelchair bound and disabled folks that carry concealed. It does require a bit of adaptation. I can remember it being discussed once or twice, but not in detail.
I wonder if there are organizations like the VFW & American Legion that will provide a ride to the polls? I’d be willing to volunteer for something like that!
A $200 tax stamp for a class III device makes all legal.
Machine gun, suppressor, short barrel rifle, what ever.
Supposedly you don’t need a stamp or anything to get a suppressor so said Hickock45.
I sent you the link did you see it?
I did not see it.
You do need a stamp. Suppressors are class III
I saw that. It was pretty sweet.
Silencers/suppressors are legal. One just has to jump through the hoops to get one.
I’m waiting for an email from a manufacturer about information about silencers and Colorado laws.
Do y’all know what the #1 method of homicide is in the UK now that guns are illegal?
Putting the boot in
Thats right, getting kicked to death.
In the arab world the rock has been used for millennia.
I aint gonna let anyone “put the boot in”
From TSRA, Alice Tripp........
Current Texas law does not restrict the use of suppressors in the field when hunting non-game species such as exotic game, wild hogs, or coyotes; so the major addition would include mule and white-tail deer and antelope.
Whats a suppressor? Incorrectly called Silencers, a suppressor is a device, controlled by federal law through BATF which dampens the sound of gunfire. TSRA Legislative Committee Vice Chair commented, If firearms were invented today, OSHA would require guns to include a suppressor to protect shooters from hearing damage.
How can an individual purchase a suppressor? Several companies manufacture suppressors for rifles and handguns and the average retail cost runs between $700-$800. However, the individual will not take immediate possession of their suppressor; not until the purchaser receives final approval from BATF. Both the purchaser and their suppressor will then be registered with the BATF.
Step one is to complete the application process. The application must include the signature of a Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) in the county of residence. This could be the county sheriff, police chief, or even the district attorney. If the application is not signed by the CLEO, the quest for a suppressor stops. Finding a signer for your application is not always easy.
When all is complete, including finger prints for the background check, the application and a one-time check for $200 are mailed to BATF and the wait begins. Processing time can take up to 6 months for a perfectly prepared application package.
Note: It is possible to shelter and to by-pass some of the steps involved in acquiring class III devices within a trust or corporation, speak with your family lawyer to decide what’s right for you.
Don’t forget to add-in the cost for a gunsmith to thread your barrell. The resale of a suppressor from one individual to another requires these same steps. A suppressor remains registered in the name of the owner until legally transferred. The penalty for an illegal suppressor or an illegal transfer is severe.
Ooops... there goes the KIDO feed. :(
Did we lose the KIDO stream?
And FR seems extra slow today too...
You’re right, my bad. They made it sound like just buying a handgun.
And now its back..
In typical fashion, you are free if you pay
The way the law is written that if you are 100% & have a fiduciary you loose your right to have a firearm as well as your family,friends & neighbors [as defined by the va]. They [the va] fears that we might go off and start shooting up every one & every place we see.
It’s always slow for me, but I read slow so it’s OK.
Then again half of the fun of the CZ 52 is its bark
$25 what a buy!
They go for $100-$150 for the conversion barrels I’ve bought.
Tom brings up a serious point.
If you can disengage.
Do not escalate a situation
Get the Fluke OUT!
They used to be $25 when the pistol was $125
I was on another gun board last night and a guy said that if you remove the complete rear sight assembly on a Mosin M91/30 there is a 3/8" beaver tail on the barrel. I never knew that.
Removing the sight and installing the red dot was a piece of cake. I haven't had it to the range yet but I did the best I could at bore sighting using just my naked eye. When I got out in regular light I was amazed to see that the red dot co-witnesses the top tip of my front iron sight perfectly! SWEET!
A red dot sight on a Mosin looks a little silly but I'm thinging it'll shoot pretty darned good.
thinging = thinking
I hope it holds!
Dang ol Moseys kick like a mule
Yep. The literature and web site claims it will hold on any center-fire rifle or shotgun.
(I’ll take a screwdriver and a tube of blue Loctite with me when I go to the range.)
That’s good thinking, but I meant the internals
