Welcome back to the Talking Lead Show episode: TLP 197 NRAAM Vol. 1 Eagle Power, Team Muller, Grunt Style
We kick off our coverage of the 2017 National Rifle Association Annual Meeting with this episode. Talking Lead was hosted by the awesome gang at Eagle Imports for the first two days of NRAAM. Mike Sodini and Rafael DelValle join Lefty to bring in the first round of guests but first we learn more about some of Eagle’s top imports.
The SPS Pantera is all the craze on the competition scene. Eagle’s 3-Gunner, Rebecca King, joins the conversation and discusses how SPS Pantera has helped her crank it up a notch on the 3-gun circuit. Next to join in on the fray, Rob Pincus and Brad Thomas talk about the history and the behind-the-scenes of what has led up to what will eventually be the release of the new Avidity Arms 9mm single stack PD-10.
Regular to the Talking Lead show, NRA Country singer and outdoor personality, Morgan Mills joins Lefty along with Eagle Import’s competition shooters Ryan and Dianna Muller. Morgan is also the host of NRA TV’s “On Location” and gives us the lowdown on who’s performing and where during NRAAM. Ryan and Dianna give us a little background on themselves and how “sweet tea” brought this Engineer and 22 year LE Veteran together. Dianna discusses her grass roots movement to get legislators behind the 2A community with her “D.C. Project”. 50 women in the firearms industry, 1 from each State, travel to Washington D.C. to meet their legislators face-to-face and establish a bonding relationship by inviting them to the range and put a rifle and gun in their hands.
