The AR-15 Giveaway Winner:

Congrats to Hunter, our second giveaway winner!

Hunter now has his rifle and we’ve sent him his Brownells Magazines as well as the documentation for the various parts of his Rifle.



Josh: One of our listeners was out in the snow taking a moment to share his knowledge and wisdom with a beginner shooter.  Thanks for sharing.

TL:  Part 1:  I was listening to This Week in Guns and it was mentioned that there is current ammo on the market that is "more armor piercing" than green tip.  Could you give some examples?  Thank You.

Part 2:  Sorry, I should clarify. I realize that most rifle ammo should penetrate level IIIA but do you know of any AR15 ammo results in more penetration than green tip?

Woody:  I was curious if you handle setting up gun trusts? What's the difference between a normal "trust" and a "gun trust"? What do you think of SilencerCo gun trust? Can non Class 3 guns be purchased in a trust, if so would it help with anything? Paperwork, background check, etc.
