Mandeville, LA Its twin sister biathletes, a big milestone in Wisconsin, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Lanny and Tracy Barnes are not only twin sisters; they are both competitors in one of the toughest winter sports around the cross-country skiing and rifle competition, also known as the biathlon. Currently in Canada for training, the Barnes sisters call in to Gun Talk to talk about how they got into shooting, how they train for the biathlon, and their current push for a spot at the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. Read more about the twins here: http://twinbiathletes.com.
Back in 2011, with the passage of Act 35, Wisconsin became the 49th state to license people to carry concealed weapons. The law took effect Nov. 1 that year, and since then, 200,000 permits have been issued. Wisconsin Carry, Inc.s Chairman and President Nik Clark visits Gun Talk this Sunday with his thoughts on why the number of permits has exceeded expectations, info on the free concealed carry class the group offers, an update on a lawsuit against the DOJ, and more. More information can be found at http://www.wisconsincarry.org.

Sighting-In Your Rifle With 2 rounds...

...and Eric & Jed’s Way...
I want the Crimson Trace green laser for a J Frame.
Local guy helping us saw 21 deer that morning.
Got the slug gun scope checked. 100-yard lanes were full so had to use a 50-yard. About 2” high at 50 yards. I had it zeroed at 100 yards last year so I figured I'm good. Didn't change anything.
Finally got the scope on my son's AK zeroed in.
Life is good.
Yeah, that would be nice.
Try using a 30" barrel in a duck blind. I use a 24" and rarely miss.
I’ve got two new pistols I’ve never fired waiting at home. Dang it, I’m on a trip. Two Walthers, a P22 and a PPS 9mm.
Question to all: IF one has a gun collection worth more than what your homeowners policy covers, do you get a separate policy? You will be letting an appraiser know what guns you have and then you will tell your agent what you have.
No problem if all purchases are recent and have gone through all the current red tape. But what about guns purchased 50 years ago (mail order or newspaper ads)? What about antique guns over 100 years old (trapdoors, Krags, 03s, etc.)?
If you ever see one let me know.
I’ve always wanted to be able to do that 2-shot or 3-shot zero. Problem is, you really almost need to have a Lead Sled or some time of fixed rest.
It’s not near as easy shooting free-hand from a bench.
They make one but don’t seem to be in stock at the moment.
Google LG-305G Green Lasergrips® to see if you can find one.
You’re one cool grandpa!
A good quality safe is probably your best insurance.
NRA membership gives you minimal insurance, but you can get more.
You need to put a rider policy out.
Home owners policy will not cover guns without a rider.
In Texas, Germania (HQ in Brenham) will cover all your guns and gear with just their home owners policy.
Good company to deal with too.
How do you know if it’s a round butt? My S&W 360 PD looks like a square btt.
Thank you for that tip brother.
I will look at that.
NRA Support from where you’d least expect it.
You bet, a couple of my friends and I have bought insurance from Germania for years now. They are also much better policies in other ways too.
They still don’t have them for Kimber grips; just the LaserGuard package for the rail. I went for the reds for 2 5” Kimber 1911 models I have, but should have waited for the Green LaserGrips to come into full poduction. They said it’d June-July 2014 until they had them widely-commercially available. My reserved set of CTC ‘green laser beta grips’ was sold by one of the FFL’s (newly-hired sales-putz ) I work PT for. PMO’d!
I did get 2 Viridian X5L-RS units - one for an AR-15 and one for the Beowulf .50cal - and the green laser is good to 150yds in bright sunlight. The red laser isn’t visible 5ft.
Howdy, Y’all! I missed the start of the gun talk. Been busy on facebook entertaining a friend that is very sick. It’s really helping him and his wife to have some online talk and banter. I try to keep the levity up in those threads!
Something to look forward to, when you get back home.
My ins agent said that firearms and jewelry are the 2 most frequently stolen items, so they get “premiumed”. My condo homeowner’s policy would increase from $284/yr ($250k contents) to $21,600/yr, based upon my inventory, ammo and massive safe. An expensive security/fire suppression system was hugely cheaper.
The NRA offers a policy to members, and I’m going to check into it.
I missed the beginning of the thread as well since I was on the horn,
100%. Great technique but requires some special equipment.
Here’s tonite’s podcasts from earlier today.
Cool - thanks. Need to work out the “podcast” thing though.
Thanks so much! I always thought my butt was round. HA!
So green lasers for a J-Frame cost $369? That’s a bit pricey dontcha think?
God Bless You Brother.
Thank you Brother.
They’re pricey for sure.
But putting a good set of night sights or a tactical light on a snubby is pretty much impossible.
Looks like Jesse James the motorcycle guy is starting his own line of firearms.
3500 bucks for a 1911. HA HA
This guy is little whacka doodle.
Why not? Many arms company’s made great bikes.
BSA, Birmingham Small Arms, Husquevarna
Cool song, I like that.
Jesse can Kiss My arse but Hey.
Do what you can do.
$3500? Holy cow.
She makes sense on the surface.
But I have reservations
The moron that cheated on his wife Sandra Bullock?
IT is cool LOL
