Episode-1598- The Ins and Outs of Legally Owning Firearm Suppressors (AKA Silencers)

Lane Douglas graduated from UT-Martin in 1975 with an Engineering degree. After a few years as an engineer, he began working in Industrial Sales. He retired in 2011, after 32 years in sales management, the last 12 as Regional Sales Operations Director for MSC Industrial Supply.

He opened Southern Silencers, LLC in 2014, a NFA Class 3, silencer business, selling silencers in the State of Tennessee.  His company provides suppressors and nothing else.  They are 100% customer focused and will work hard to help their customers make the right choice for their needs.

They also provide all the information you need to complete the necessary ATF paperwork for owning a suppressor and will even complete as much of the paper work for you as the law will allow, to help you make sure you get it done properly.

Episode-1053- Ian McCollum of ForgottenWeapons.com

The Most Lethal Tricycle of All Time, a Great Example of a Forgotten Weapon.

Ian McCollum grew up around his father’s extensive collection of WWII Japanese rifles, and early on developed an appreciation for historically interesting old guns.

His gun collecting began in earnest after leaving college, and expanded into an interest in building guns and studying rare and unusual designs in museums and private collections worldwide.

Today he shares his passion for old military guns specifically many of them that have been lost to the annals of history on his blog called, ForgottenWeapons.com Ian blogs 6 times a week reviewing guns, historical reference books and posts some incredible old photography as well.

He joins us today to discuss surplus firearms and NFA weapons.  We also discuss a bit about current proposed gun legislation and the damage it could do to both historical weapons and the modern gun industry.
