Shooting The Breeze Podcast: Episode 39

MagTech 380 SCHP - Lucky Gunner - 1

This episode of Shooting The Breeze is a little late, and for good reason. Over the weekend I was involved in a car accident. While this accident has been very stressful it has provided me with an interesting discussion topic for the episode.

Discussion Topic:

If involved in an accident (In my case, a car crash), what do you do about the gun you are carrying? I discuss my experience and the choices I made during my interaction with police, firefighters, EMTs, and hospital personel.

  • Hey Walt.

    Glad your okay, but it was a great episode, you brought up a situation I had never considered.

  • Walt,

    Glad your okay, great episode, you brought up a situation I had never considered in the discussion topic.

    • Nick,
      I didn’t think of it at the time, but I wonder how things would have went down if I was in state where I had a duty to inform the officer I was carrying.

  • First glad to hear your ok and everything turned out alright. Second My Brother and Uncle both have their LTCF but my Brother is in Philly and My Uncle isn’t always around, so if I needed to get a hold of somebody who had one to take my firearm at the time I guess I would call my Good Old Buddy Walt White!!! no really I would probably call you hahah. I have thought of the same situation and to be honest when you first told me about your accident my very first thought was what did he do with his gun… then I thought gee hope he is ok LOL. Glad everything turned out alright.

    • Corey,
      Had my brother been busy, your phone may have rang next…. LOL

      My wife and I discussed it again and I think now she sees why I feel it is so important she be licensed to carry.

  • Thanks for another great podcast, Walt. I am looking forward to your Mag-Tech review. On another note, we were invited to attend the annual Fracas in Frisco hosted by the Arkansas Lead Slingers this past weekend. I was a very memorable experience. If you have never been to a Cowboy Action match, you should go to at least one. There is a nice article with photos and videos on our website. Thanks again, Walt, for the work you do for us.

    • Bob,
      I saw the photos when I was scanning through my RSS Feeds but I haven’t gone back and read the article yet. I’ll be sure to do that.

      I’ve never been to a SASS match but there is a club that holds them in the area. Maybe one weekend I’ll go check it out.

  • Great topic Walt, I had a similar situation several years ago. Was traveling in another state (full CC reciprocity) when my truck broke down. I’ll fill you in on the details someday, but the same questions/issues had to be dealt with. What do you do with your weapons if you can’t have them on you and no friends/family members are there to assist? What if you need alternate modes of transport but don’t have a TSA certified lockable case with you?

    I’d be curious (and thank goodness it didn’t happen to you!) what the police/EMT’s would have done if you were unconscious and they discovered your weapon. We all assume they’d have also found your permit, and handed you back your gun when you were released from the hospital, but how long could that drag out? Your experience points out another facet of planning and responsibility that are required when one chooses to carry.

  • Glad to hear you didn’t get hurt Walt
