Listener Feedback:

Steve from Facebook: What are the top things you have changed and/or added to a new Glock? Thank you! : )

ColonelRon ‏from Twitter - Can u discuss how a woman's grip differs from a man & how to compensate? I've heard different techniques but wife still has trouble

GEAR Dad ‏from Twitter - Is it realistic to use a pump shotgun (I have a Mossberg 500) to compete in #3Gun? LOVE the podcast!

Daniel from Facebook: Less of a question and more of a suggestion. If it comes up, don't try to defend modern civilian rifles by differentiating them from selective fire weapons. The differences don't matter and nobody cares anyway. The only point that needs to be made is that banning these firearms won't solve anything, and nobody can provide a shred of evidence that it will. We have a violence problem that won't be solved by taking one type of rarely-used firearm off store shelves, and focusing on that goal is just a distraction from the search for real solutions.
