Veteran Groups and More - This Week on Gun Talk Radio

Mandeville, LA – It’s clarification from the Wounded Warrior Project, a firearms engraver, the founder of MarineParents.com, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

The CEO of the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), Steven Nardizzi, will be a guest on this Sunday's show. This follows a week where show host Tom Gresham shared his email exchange with the PR director of WWP in which she indicated that the organization does not do interviews with media or appear at events which are related to guns. This set off a firestorm of reaction by hunters and shooters, many of whom have donated to help wounded veterans as well as putting on fundraising hunts and shoots for the WWP.

"I'm really glad that the Wounded Warrior Project is coming on the show to clarify their position on this," said Gresham. "It has been really confusing to see them taking donations from firearms manufacturers as well as hunting groups, and then to be told that they won't appear in public with us. The latest communication from WWP is that this is all a big mistake and that they want to clear it up with me this Sunday. "

Also on this Sunday, it’s the founder of MarineParents.com, Tracy Della Vecchia. Originally founded in “response to parents' needs to find information and to Connect & Share® with one another during deployments”, MarineParents.com’s services and programs have now expanded “to support Marines, and to support and educate Marine families.” One such program is Purple Heart Hero Support, which provides assistance and services to wounded Marines. For more information, and to donate or volunteer, visit http://www.marineparents.com/.

Guest Noelle Feucht is a busy woman. She is the CFO and jewelry designer at AKR, and moonlights as a hand engraver of firearms focusing on the old world Bulino style, and specializing in “reproduction and restoration work from the 1800’s”. To see some examples of her engravings, visit http://engravingbynoelle.com/engravings.

Trijicon’s Tom Munson stops by this Sunday as well, with what’s new in the world of optics, including a Crossbow ACOG with a range finder. For more info, visit https://www.trijicon.com.

But they came back at the end and that killed the spirit of the Brownies.

Glad WWP finally came on the show.

POW!

I’m working on a major mess here next to my desk.

I use an upper shelf on one of my bookcases to hold ammo, cleaning supplies, gun parts, etc. etc.

The shelf broke this afternoon and stuff is scattered everywhere.

(I’d planned on organizing it someday but today really wasn’t the day.)

Went out to the range today to do a few final practice shots with the new slug gun. Had to turn around and come home because the range was completely packed. I’ve been using this public range out on DNR land since the early 70’s. I’ve never seen so many people there. Cars double and triple parked in the lot and cars and trucks parked out on the gravel road in both directions. It would have been a minimum of a two or three hour wait.

Strange thing was, probably only a handful of them were hunters getting ready for deer season. The other hundred or so out there were general public primarily shooting handguns.

I don’t know if it was the nice weather or the results of the election that brought this on. It was nuts!

Bummer about the shelf.

I went to the range yesterday, it was packed too!
Full auto FAL shoot.
Holy Moses that was fun!

Steve sounds like he does not know how to deal with legal matters as a CEO.

He could be making more money for the wounded warriors if he knew what he was doing.

I am kinda surprised that they had not come to an agreement prior to recording the show.

That was a pretty tense interview.

Even sadder. An amazing line of BS: “We’ll take the money, but we don’t want anything to do with your organization.” That’s what I came away with.

It was obvious the Wounded Warrior Project CEO was trying to have it both ways. There are other ways to support our wounded vets without supporting anti-gun, over-paid libs.

And Tom isn’t in it for personal gain, he is trying to raise MORE money for the WW’s.

Very tense. I understand the heavy legal costs involved and don’t fault WWP,
they are being advised maybe by the wrong people but it’s their choice.

At least they showed up to explain their case.

It's still on the bottom of the page:

WWP does not co-brand, create cause marketing campaigns or receive a percentage or a portion of proceeds from companies in which the product or message is sexual, political or religious in nature, or from alcohol or weapon companies.

They did indeed change the term "firearms" to "weapons".

A little off topic, but in researching this, I see that Steve pulls down $320K per year in personal salary and bonuses for running this "non-profit".

Do you insure your firearms beyond your homeowners?

Did some experimenting yesterday.
60 grain subsonic 22 works in the AR with the CMMG conversion kit.
It works in the Ruger MK II, and you can kinda sorta get the AR slide fire stock to work with the CMMG 22 conversion kit.
You get get 3 round bursts.

There just isn’t enough recoil.

Speaking of .22 rounds, have you ever had a 525 count box of Remington “Golden Bullets” splatter all over your office floor?

If anyone is looking for a different grip for their AR, I recommend this one:

http://www.rangerjoes.com/Stark-SE-2-AR15-Sling-Grip-wHook-Mount-P4782C523.aspx

Very well made with sling attachment point and battery storage. Also replaces standard trigger guard with a larger one built in.
