In this episode we hit you with more coverage from the 2017 National Rifle Association’s Annual Meeting in Hotlanta, GA. Leading the way is Charles Brown and Kara Bosenberg with MKS Supply makers of HI POINT Firearms and INLAND MFG. Believe it or not Hi Point has been around for 30 years making durable affordable fixed barrel pistols. We talk about their new .380 carbine. It has nearly zero recoil and increases the velocity by 200-300 feet per second making the .380 round accurate at 100 yards.
Inland Manufacturing has been around since the 50’s. Originally producing the M1 carbine used by our military during WWII. At one point Inland was producing 4000 M1’s per day. Nearly 4.5 million were made over 5 years. Charlie and Kara give us the patriotic history behind Inland and how they have continued that heritage into their new firearms. The new M1 design is still made to the original design specifications making it possible to interchange parts. Next we talk about their 100% American made Inland 1911 pistols and the new PM-22 rimfire suppressor.
Vertx has been around since the American Civil War making uniforms for both the North & South. They are the oldest and largest uniform company celebrating 175 years under their parent company Fechheimer Brother Co.
Tim gets us caught up on the latest with MAC and talks about some new “Gauntlet Tests” he’s been filming and he also fills us in on what’s new with FULL 30 the Firearms Reviews, Education, and Entertainment website.
We happen to see “The Kraken”, Jim Erwin, walking by on his way to another interview and are lucky enough to grab him for a quick sit down with the group. Jim is in the process of launching his new website www.krakenultimus.com, check it out you won’t be disappointed!
Wrapping up Vol 4 of our NRAAM coverage is fun and entertaining with guests Matt Wolfe, VP of Sales for INFORCE and Master Police Detective, Tony Poe, of a local Virginia Police Department and High Threat Concealment consultant. Matt and Tony introduce us to INFORCE’s new pistol light the APL & the APL-C.
The APL Compact is a brand new INFORCE product providing 200 lumens of vibrant white light with up to 1.5 hours of runtime. Ultra-light & durable inside and out, weighing less than 2 ounces. It is water-resistant & very compact. It mounts completely flush with the muzzle of a Glock 19/23. Textured paddles for a non-slip grip and ambidextrous on/off switches enable left or right hand activation.
Tony gives us first hand accounts of how he & his department have used INFORCE’s lights in their day-to-day LE operations in Virginia.
We have some fun with Matt & Tony later in the interview with the Talking Lead “new guy” questions.
