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.


Bill Wylde:  I thoroughly enjoyed watching Episode #141. Yes, I'm still alive. Still shooting at every opportunity. Great show! - Bill Wylde

Robert:  Reed, you are the greatest.  The AR-15 podcast has taught me so much, and I am so glad that our lifestyle is becoming more popular because of people like you.  I'm pretty sure that the 2A issue will be the unhinging of our country if we don't turn it around, but I think you are doing just that.

After I started listening to the AR-15 podcast, I found the reloading podcast and it blossomed into a whole bunch of other Firearms Radio Network podcasts.  Yours is still the best!

I use the Amazon affiliate links whenever I can.  Have a wonderful holiday season!
