Simon Says Train Diversity Shoots
Tony Simon of Simon Says Train joins us this week to talk about the Diversity Shoots that he has organized. Tony tells us about his motivation to get involved and start these shooting meetups. He also talks about the logistical challenges he has faced and the individuals and groups that have helped him overcome the challenges. The next meetup is going to be June 25th at 6PM and will be held at Gun for Hire’s Woodland Park Range. This next meetup will be the third. We learn that each event has had greater attendance than the previous one. If interested in joining Tony on his shoots, visit his Facebook event page here.
We also talk briefly with Tony about the review he wrote on a Hi-Point .40SW that you can find here. He includes a video of his shooting with it at 100 yards. While he notes that it probably isn’t a good choice for concealed carry and that there are issues with the magazines, as shipped, that this firearm can be a workable solution for the prospective gun owner on a budget.
