The fine folks at Otis Technology have sent over a mountain of rifle maintenance tools and cleaning kits for the AR-15 and AR-10. We’ve been tasked with giving them away. Watch for the special posts on Facebook and Instagram to get a chance to win some of the awesome products made by Otis Technology. We’ll give away a complete MSR Cleaning kit in either 5.56 or 7.62 in the middle of each month up until Christmas, when we’ll give away a complete Otis Technology Elite Cleaning System to one lucky listener. During the alternating weeks, we’ll be giving away a host of Otis tools and cleaning supplies.
dan v: I'd like to search old episodes, but you don't have a search function on your website. Please consider adding one the next time you're tweaking your page. Thanks. [We do now]joelfrederick: I'm not sure if this is the best way to send feedback and a question. That said, thank you for this episode. I'd already discovered 80% Arms due to a comment you'd made and a friend that has nearly completed an 80% AR build.
I know you'd mentioned changes to ATF policy. From what I understand I can build an 80% AR but after I die, this creates issues for my son who would end up with any guns. If this is true, would a gun trust make this easier?
Ken: I recently discovered your podcast, and want to listen to all of them. I was able to down load to episode 90 using i-tunes. I was able to download to 64 using the webpage. I want to listen to episodes 63 to 1. I really wanted to listen to the range bag segment, and that is where it stopped. How do I get episodes 1 to 63?
