Welcome back to the Talking Lead Show episode TLP 190 Big Daddy Hoffman, Eagle Imports & Sheep Dogs. This week we continue our coverage from the 2017 SHOT Show. To kick off this episode we have the President of Eagle Imports Michael Sodini and creator of the blog livebythegun.org.
Eagle Imports was founded nearly 30 years ago by two enthusiastic industry veterans. Beginning in 1988, and still thriving today, Eagle Imports represents quality firearms from around the globe and makes it a goal to offer the best after-purchase experience in the firearms industry. Eagle Imports is honored by its history and rich tradition of being the exclusive importer and representative in the United States for Bersa handguns and accessories, MetroArms pistols, Grand Power Pistols, and Comanche pistols and revolvers. Lefty and Mike talk about the rich history the Sodini family has with the firearms industry.
The blog Livebythegun.org is an online platform which explores the power of responsibility when it comes to freedom, and the right to bear arms. By providing both original, and curated content LBTG caters to a wide array of gun enthusiasts, free thinkers, and those with an interest in self-sufficiency, and personal defense.
Next up we find out the latest with our friends Sergeant Major Lance Nutt with Sheep Dog Impact Assistance and Bill Hampstead of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association. In addition to learning about all the amazing support these two organizations offer to our Military, Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS men and women, the guys also discuss some of the impressive products they’ve seen during SHOT…one being a rifle breaching round being developed by Frontier Tactical! Support these two organizations at www.sheepdogia.org & www.fleoa.org
