Guest hosts J.W. Ramp from the AR-15 Podcast and Ryan Cross, host of the Gun and Gear Review Podcast, build on last week’s episode for new shooters with a great discussion on issues that need to be addressed by new concealed carriers.  J.W. and Ryan recognize that many of the concerns of new carriers are personal in nature, they provide their thoughts and advice on issues such as carry position, caliber choice, handgun size, holster type and familiarity with local laws and regulations.

There are so many topics that new concealed carriers must consider when beginning the process of safe and legal concealed carry.  In this week’s episode, J.W. and Ryan provide a variety of good suggestions on what, where, when and how to carry a concealed firearm.  Not surprisingly, personal experience and continuous training are at the top of their list for how to make sure that you are effectively exercising your right to self-defense in the public sphere.

Brownell’s Product Category Manager Paul Levy brings out his inner book worm in this week’s Product Spotlight.  Paul gives GGR listeners a quick and positive review Bruce Canfield’s outstanding book about one of the most celebrated battle rifles of all time – the M1 Garand.  Not only is the book well organized and informative, it provides many great photographs of the rifle during the manufacturing process and in use by a variety of American soldiers.  “If you have an M1 Garand this is probably a ‘must have’.”
