Our first interview is a really fun and educational one with our good friend Chad Enos of Kel-Tec and Jansen Jones President of Freedom Munitions. You also know Jansen as one of 3-Gun’s premier competitors. Jansen gives us a little history behind Freedom Munitions and how he has helped grow the company from 50 employees to over 400 employees now. They have achieved such massive growth by the caliber of men and women they employ and their focus on superior customer service.
Jansen shares a couple of new products Freedom Munitions has developed one being “Bore Buster” ammo which is primarily for the AR-15 rifle with special rounds which include 64 grain .223, 90 grain 6.8 SPC, 168 grain .308 and a special .300 win mag. If you are into the big caliber bullets FM has come out with their affordable “Big Grains” line that focuses on low-cost, heavy plated, heavy weight bullets like the 458 SOCOM, 50 AE & 550 S&W.
As if he was not busy enough Jansen, along with his buddy Rob Romero (of 3-Gun fame and the “Ninja Cock” click for video) started a new company called Next Evolution Research & Design (N.E.R.D.) NERD’s focus is on developing innovative products no matter what the costs. A couple of new products they have available are“The Ward” a 9mm barrel to satisfy the sub gun competition shooters and the other is “The Coffin Nail”. Made with stainless-steel internals the CN is an ambidextrous charging. The ambidextrous tac latches are independent, allowing either one or both levers to be pulled at the same time, virtually eliminating the risk of a bind or malfunction.
Next up Mike Sodini, President of Eagle Imports helps Lefty co-host guest Jonathan Hayes with Do All Outdoors. Mike and Lefty have some fun with Jon during this interview but he is able to talk about Do All Outdoors a little. Founded in 1997, Do-All Outdoors has become the leader in providing innovative gear for the hunter and shooter. Their full line of traps and targeting systems has set the bar for recreational shooters on all skill levels. From paper, steel and Impact Seal targets to manual and automatic traps, they are the one-stop shop for all of your shooting needs.
Our last guests for Vol 3 come to us via Utah. Kenny Barlow, Vice President of Sales & Amelia Pulman with North American Arms join Lefty to discuss the rich 40 year history of NAA. Amelia brings along one of their more popular mini revolvers the “Pug”. The “Pug-T” is a 5 shot revolver that comes in .22 mag or .22 long and has tritium sights. Another fun interview that will not fail to entertain you.
Stay tuned for Vol 4 of the Talking Lead coverage of the National Rifle Association‘s 2017 Meeting!
