TLP 256 - Schotzy, Benchmade Knives & Boston
Welcome back to the Talking Lead Podcast episode 256! This episode Lefty and his guests, Bill and Goody, talk about their recent trip to Massachusetts honoring the memory of Federal Agent Chris Schoppmeyer. We also have Brian Montgomery with Benchmade Knives join us to talk about a few of their new offerings. And it wouldn't be a complete show without the Gunny dropping in with the Talking Lead Jackwagon Train to haul off a new group of Jackwagons! More giveaways for our Defi Watches 10 Watches for 10 Vets campaign!
Christian “Chris” Schoppmeyer was many things to many people, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a federal marine law enforcement agent, a member of FLEOA, active in his town’s politics, and a volunteer who helped many kids learn to love and respect the outdoors.
Chris was dedicated to his career, but first and foremost he was a family man. He loved fishing with his son Travis, 33, hunting with his daughter Erin, 27, walking with his golden retriever Shadow, going to baseball games, spending time as “Pop-pop” with his grandchildren, and sharing his life with Terri, his wife, along with his many other family members and friends.
Also during the trip and dedication events honoring Chris, we run into Brian with Benchmade Knives. Brian does not disappoint when he makes an appearance on the show. We talk about the newest line of knives and tools from Benchmade and the importance of learning how to use them.
