The Return of Bob Lee Swagger; Ruger Auction - This Week on Gun Talk Radio

Mandeville, LA – It’s a new Bob Lee Swagger novel from author Stephen Hunter, a Ruger auction benefiting The Light Foundation (founded by pro-footballer Matt Light), a reloading company that’s been around for more than six decades, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

This Sunday, novelist Stephen Hunter stops by Gun Talk to discuss his newest book, Sniper’s Honor. This latest tale from Hunter has character Bob Lee Swagger investigating why the greatest WWII sniper - Ludmilla “Mili” Petrova - was erased from history. Sniper’s Honor is available at Amazon.com: http://amzn.to/QNPISI.

Former New England Patriot Matt Light and his wife Susie established The Light Foundation in 2001 as a non-profit organization that serves at-risk youth and gives them a better chance to lead a healthy life. In March, Ruger teamed up with Matt in an ongoing fundraising auction to benefit The Light Foundation. The auctions will continue until the 10th Annual Celebrity Shootout on September 23, 2014. Individual firearms will be announced every Wednesday and will remain up for bid for a duration of two weeks.

"Ruger has been a longtime partner of the Light Foundation, and their commitment to our mission has enabled us to fund programs and services for at-risk youth in need of mentoring and guidance”, said Light. In addition to the vast selection of firearms up for bid, Matt will include signed memorabilia such as jerseys, baseball caps and more with auction items. Light visits with Tom on Sunday to discuss the auction and his charity. Check out current firearms for auction at http://www.ruger.com/auction, and learn more about The Light Foundation at http://www.mattlight72.com.

Also on this week, Robin Sharpless, the Executive VP at Redding Reloading Equipment. Redding Reloading Equipment was founded by WWII veteran Burr Bement in 1946, and has been producing and selling quality reloading equipment and supplies ever since. Shop online at http://www.redding-reloading.com/.

It’s the last week to enter to win the Smith & Wesson “Handgun Hunter” Gun Talk Giveaway! One Grand Prize winner will receive a Performance Center .44 Magnum Revolver from Smith & Wesson. Enter to win through May 30th at http://www.guntalk.com/win.

Danny Phillip Dietz, Jr. (January 26, 1980 – June 28, 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL who was killed in the War in Afghanistan. He was posthumously awarded the U.S. Navy’s second highest award for valorous actions in battle, the Navy Cross, on September 13, 2006.

On June 28, 2005, SEAL Team 10 was assigned to kill or capture a high ranking Taliban leader in the Hindu Kush mountains. The SEAL team was made up of Michael P. Murphy, Marcus Luttrell, Danny Dietz and Matthew Axelson. Luttrell and Axelson were the team’s snipers while Dietz and Murphy were the spotters.

... You probably know the rest of the story (Lone Survivor).

She’s now in my age bracket and makes me ... drool? But she’s just an actor. I am ever so fond of River Song from Dr Who ... she so resembles my first wife. Still have a soft spot for that gal.

Tom is correct, the left and the MSM are making hay.

“Indy 500 throws unprecedented red flag to guarantee green finish.”

You’ll note how things have changed in the last few years, when ABC is the race broadcaster.

They likely wanted an “exciting finish”.
I was at Las Vegas when Wheldon was killed, and they very well could have run that race, but ABC wouldn’t extend the TV window.

Tell me about it. When one doesn't it is really a sore spot. I have a Tactical Solutions Glock 23 conversion to 22lr kit that has never cycled more than two rounds without a jam. Now it's bending the extractor arm. The company knows their product is a piece of engineering garbage but will do nothing but send me a replacement extractor arm. I will never buy anything else from that bunch of Idaho thieves. They sound so nice on the phone, then they play dumb rather than fix their gross mistakes.

I'm gonna try to sell the piece of crap at a gun show in June, with the provision that it does not work in my Glock 3rd Gen 23 to whomever wants the thing for $200. I've wasted far too much time and .22lr ammo on it trying to get it to work. There is no such thing as a warranty from Tactical Solutions. Maybe someone with more skill than me can figure the junk out.

Dang! I’ve been wanting one of those Glock .22LR conversions.

Does anyone else make a good one? I wonder if it might work better on a different model than the ‘23? (Wanted for a G37)

Tom, Winchester .308 is not the same as 7.62x51 NATO

The NATO round is lower pressure.
I would not risk shooting .308 Winchester in a Military gun.
That is one hella round and I err on the side of caution on kabooms with something like that.

Both will chamber and fire but, hey...

Getting ready to shut down for an hour in a minute.
The new episode of TURN is about to come on.

I’ll still be here but not actively listening.
It’s a shame because tonight’s show is good, but TURN is fantastic.

There are several youtube videos of the other one, has a red velvet inside of the box. That one is recommended by Lenny at Glock Sotre so it must be a good one.

The show from two weeks ago about Dudley Brown prompted me to email Tom about my dealings with Dudley.

Needless to say, my Wife and I are ending our memberships with Mr. Brown’s group, and joining a couple of better ones: JPFO and GOA.

There’s a place near me that has most everything you’d need for reloading. They mostly sell higher end stuff, so I don’t think you’d be saving all that much by reloading, but you would have better quality ammo. The brass can be fairly expensive if you buy it new, but can obviously be used several times.

If you collect use brass, the rest seems to be okay. Unless you want something unusual like Barnes copper bullets.
