Listener Feedback:

Bill in Virginia:  Hey Guys, great show , learning alot about ARs and how easy they are to work on and wish you could talk a little about the different triggers that are available because the standard triggers are gritty and hard to pull to pull and not very accurate. Thanks for an informative show

Warner: Love the show and thanks for taking to time to teach others about self defense making us laugh at your expense while doing it! I have just picked up shooting, a couple years now even though i have been active duty USAF for about 10 years. I am moving to Belgium and cannot bring my firearms, but want to continue to train and learn. I also want to keep my family interested, so my only two options for weapons training seems to be either a Basic SIRT pistol or a LoneWolf Dist airsoft pistol to train at home. I have a Glock 19 and that is the firearm my wife and I enjoy shooting th most so I\'d like to continue training on that platform while still having something for the kids to safely start handling. What do you think about either option for the price point? Thanks! I have been spreading the words to all my fellow Airman about you shows and affiliates here in Korea. God Bless the USA.

Bill Stauter:  Jake,

What are your thoughts on DPMS Panther Arms?  Do they make a good product. I\'m looking for an AR that I can put a .22LR conversion and have a plinker that has multiple uses.  Just curious on your thoughts.

Bryan Bolivar: Good interview with Mike Hughes on the SIRT AR-15 bolt. My co-host at I both have one and we really like them.

We did a review on episode 25 of Canadian Service Conditions Radio including tips on how to do the initial install. It\'s not really hard to figure out but we can all do with with a little help from our friends. I\'ll also say that the staff at Next Level Training are helpful and friendly. Don\'t hesitate to get in touch with them directly with questions and about ordering.

Here is a link the the episode.

Jared from NJ: I don't know if this e-mail will reach you in time before the NRA show or not.  However if it does, check out the booth for Windham Weaponry.

When Bushmaster was sold to Freedom Group, a bunch of the employees from Bushmaster did not want to put up with bologna and limitations that Freedom Group put upon them.  Therefore, they breached off and started Windham Weaponry.  Windham is the name of the town that Bushmaster was based in up in Maine.

I own one of their NJ compliant AR-15's and absolutely love it.

Mike F.: Hey guys, PA reporting in. Here's a story generating some buzz in the local news.  The sheriff of Chester County, Carolyn Bunny Walsh, is holding a fundraising raffle to help fund K-9 units. $20 a ticket gets your name in the running for bum...bum...bummmm..... a Colt AR-15!  For better or for worse (and judging by how our neighboring states are looking, it may be worse), the scary black rifle is the topic of discussion.

Here's the link I read:

Keep rockin on!

Ps, I'm hoping to pick up an M&P Shield 9 at the Eagle Arms show this coming +Saturday. What\'s a fair price?
