On this week’s show, Carrie talks to the Fan of the Month from Minnesota, Shannon V., and Barb has emerged from shooting in a cave with lasers and lights in Kentucky, sponsored by Crimson Trace. Julie Golob talks about taking the lead on lead in her “Tip Time” segment, and the hosts cover firearms news, cool products and events that you might like to attend. Sponsored by Ruger and NRA Women.
Carrie has returned from another successful training session for The Well Armed Woman instructors in Minnesota. And she’s been on the range, too, running through “Shoot, No Shoot” drills. Barb is back from shooting in a cave in Kentucky and testing a Honda Pioneer 1000.
Topic: Crimson Trace’s new LaserGuard Pro (497G model) in green laser, and why you might want to check it out and the importance of training for low or no light with either a laser, laser/light combo or laser/flashlight combo.
Barb says it’s a crying shame that the state of Michigan expects foster parents to give up their rights in this New York Times article on restrictions on gun ownership and foster care. Could set national precedent. Carrie mentions that, whoops, TSA says more people are carrying their firearms into the airports of this land and having them discovered in bags. Carrie also mentions the Sig Sauer recall for the P320.
Julie Golob warns us of the dangers of lead from exposure on the range, and how to best deal with it. Sponsored by NRA Women.
Carrie found a small pistol that folds and fits into your wallet. It’s like a credit card gun. Really. ($399)
Barb chose the Crimson Trace Laserguard Pro 497G in green laser mode for this week’s pick. ($279 to $379)
Carrie enjoyed talking to Shannon V., our Fan of the Month from Minnesota.
Carrie is continuing with the theme that Julie set in “Tip Time,” and pointing out that she carries D-Wipes, to remove lead easily after shooting on the range, in the canister version, too. ($12.99)
Carrie recommended that interested women might want to attend the Women’s Leadership Forum Summit in Dallas from Sept. 22 to 24. Sponsored by NRA Women.
Barb said that if you want to learn to shoot a shotgun well, you should check out Gil and Vicki Ash and their Optimum Shooting Performance School.
