Open Carry in Virginia - This Week on Gun Talk Radio

Mandeville, LA – It’s an aspiring Olympic athlete and open carry in Virginia state parks, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

With little more than two months to go until the Summer Olympics in London, there are athletes still battling it out for a spot in many sports. One such athlete is Kelsey Zauhar, currently in a three-way tie for second place in Women’s Trap in which only one position will qualify to represent the U.S. at the 2012 Olympic Games. On Sunday, Zauhar visits Gun Talk to discuss her shooting career to date. Read about all of her accomplishments at http://www.usashooting.org/12-the-team/usashootingteam/nationalteam/nationalshotgunteam/kelseyzauhar.

Virginia Citizens Defense League President, Phillip Van Cleave, drops by to talk about the latest pro-Second Amendment developments in Virginia, including a change to the state code regarding open carry in the state parks. More on the VCDL can be found here: http://vcdl.org/. And go to http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/may/1/visitors-can-pack-heat-in-virginia-parks/ to read more about the changes in Virginia.

Aren’t they going to have to bend some gun-ban rules to have a shooting competition in the UK for the Olympics?

My wife just got a S&W airweight .38 5 shot revolver. It has a surprising kick but I love it. Great for concealed carry!

I think the heavier S&W snubs shoot just fine. The sights leave something to be desired.

Winchester white box always works fine for me.

It’s the airweights that sting.
They just do.

I would run 110 grain hollow points in them to ease the pain

If you run 148 grain your hands gonna sting

Yep, the Airweights are small, light and great for ccw, but they do indeed kick.

I got the 360PD. At 12 ounces it’s a hand smacker too. But it’s SO NICE to carry.

Clipdraw makes it easy.

Picked up the Solo CDP this week. Shot 100 rounds and not one hiccup.

Think I told you already but I got the SCAR 17 too. Couldn’t help myself. I need Gunoholics Anonymous....

Interesting. I’ve been carrying my Ruger P90 in a vest http://www.bluestonesafety.com/products/clothing/
It works well but the little airweight lives up to it’s name and is MUCH more comfortable to lug around, and the hammerless design makes for a very safe little piece.

I had a titanium .357 snubby that was just too painful to shoot more than a few rounds. I got rid of it.

Went back and forth between the Solo, LC9 and LCP. Solo was .7 oz lighter and it’s just so perdy! I think the LCP with laser will be the next investment, 9.9oz is just so tempting.

Have you ever shot with a laser? It’s pretty cool not having to look down the sights.

But boy it sure does show how shaky you are.

I’m sick and tired of our contemporaries dying.

Did you know the Solo is .5” shorter and .6” lower than the LC9? It’s tiny. I’ll
admit I had to put on my shooting glove after 50 rounds though.

Recommended ammo for the lovely little S&W 38 SPCL: Hornady ‘Critical Defense’ cartridges [loaded with patented FTX bullet; 110 gr].

Less kick for you, with more damage on the receiving end. Excellent for 74-year old, 85 great-grannies such as myself. Mine is the model with a hammer - permits much easier trigger-squeeze.

Yep. Damnable luck, too. I’d give up all kinds of things to get even 25 pounds - but not my weaponry! I’ll not part with those until the day they wrap me in an American flag for my cremation.

Taurus has a tcp that in my opinion feels better to shoot ( I’ve owned both and sold the lcp. Smoother trigger pull with the Taurus and the weight/size are the same. When you buy hollow point I’d recommend hornady critical defense. The ramps on the small .380s are so small/steep that some of the more open hollow points (like federal hydrashok) can have trouble feeding.
