9.17.15: Premiere Starlight 3 Gun Match - This Week on GUNTALK Radio
Mandeville, LA - It's the new 3 Gun night match, a surprising DOJ grant recipient, getting ready for fall hunting, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's GUNTALK® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Jim Shepherd, owner of The Outdoor Wire Digital Network, (http://www.theoutdoorwire.com), is beginning a different kind of venture: gun competitions. When the Crimson Trace Midnight 3 Gun Competition proved to be overwhelmingly popular, Crimson Trace and Shepherd came to an agreement for Shepherd to take it on with a group of businessmen, to "continue a great shooting event, but to showcase the competition in a spectator-friendly format that would draw non-shooters to the competitions." The inaugural Starlight 3 Gun event is September 24th -25th, at the Peacemaker National Training Center near Glengarry, West Virginia. According to the website, spectators - both adults and children - will be able to try their hand at shooting in special participation areas, there will be a safe-play area for kids, concessions, an entertainment stage, and more! Find out more at http://www.starlight3gun.com, and tune in Sunday when Shepherd visits to discuss some of the cool features of the new match, including a GunDealio stage, and high-definition Replay XD cameras, (http://www.shootingwire.com/story/356481).
The U.S. Department of Justice recently awarded a two-year grant of $2.4 million to the National Shooting Sports Foundation. According to NSSF, (http://www.nssf.org/), "Funds will go toward providing firearm safety education messaging and free gun locks through NSSF's Project ChildSafe (http://projectchildsafe.org/)". NSSF President and CEO Steve Sanetti visits with Tom this week to talk about the grant, (http://www.nssfblog.com/doj-awards-2-4-million-grant-to-nssfs-project-childsafe/).
Tom's also talking classic fall hunting rifle and shotguns, plus new guns with Mossberg's Linda Powell, (http://www.mossberg.com/), and finding out what's new at Anschutz North America, from President Steve Boelter (http://www.anschutznorthamerica.com/).
It's also the LAST WEEK to enter to win with Alien Gear Holsters and GUNTALK at http://www.guntalk.com/win! Four Grand Prize winners will receive the holster of their choice from Alien Gear Holsters. The giveaway runs through Friday, September 25th. Find out more at http://aliengearholsters.com/.
