This week on TGC News, Winchester dunks on
Federal and LOTS of new guns! Welcome back to another episode of TGC News,
the only gun news show that covers things you actually care about, my name is Jon Patton. Before we get cracking I have something I
want to share with you guys. I’ve been asked about this for a long time
and finally, thanks to the help of the TGC Nation mods, I have a list for you guys of
every single promo code AND every single affiliate link that we currently have. So if you’re shopping online and you want
to support TGC in some way, check out this list. All you have to do is click through our link
or use our promo code and we will get credit. Thanks guys! Now how about some news? First up this week, Winchester has got to
be feeling good about themselves because they were recently awarded a contract to take over
the operations of the Army’s famed Lake City ammo plant in independence missouri. The contract is worth about 28 million dollars
and if all of the contract options are used, they could be running the plant up to 2029. Part of that contract will be manufacturing
pistol ammunition for the MHS or modular handgun system program and winchester has just introduced
the M1152 or Active Duty ammo line as a part of that. The ammo uses a flat nose full metal jacket
115 grain bullet and what they’re calling a “military-grade” primer. What I think might be interesting here is
that we currently look at XM193 and M855 ammo for 5.56 as standards for comparison. We haven’t really had that for 9mm. So perhaps this M1152 ammo will become that
standard, especially now that so many good things have come out of the MHS program. As far as civilian sales of the ammo, it will
come in 100 and 150 round boxes initially and unfortunately there isn’t much data on
pricing yet. I suspect it will be on the high side for
9mm on launch but maybe we will get lucky. What do you guys think of ammo like this? Does it make you want to switch your current
practice ammo choice just because the military is going to use it? Will it become the standard? Sound off in the comments and let’s talk about
it. I think it’s time once again to link up some
belted ammo and spool up the mini gun. We have a lot to cover and no time to do it. Here we go. Smith and wesson just announced a smaller
version of the M&P 2.0 line up, the subcompact. They will be available in 9, 40 and 45 with
and without a safety. The magazine capacity will be 12, 10 and 8
rounds respectively. The price? 569 bucks msrp. I don’t think this is a crazy move, but more
so a rounding out of the product line. If you wanted a small m2.0, you had to get
a shield before this. Browning has a new bolt gun. It’s called the X Bolt Max Varmint/Target. I suppose the varmint or target depends on
what caliber you get from the list. It’ll be available in 7 different calibers
from 204 ruger all the way up to 300 win mag. All of them will have match grade fluted and
threaded barrels made of stainless steel attached to the slick Xbolt action. That will be dropped into the Max stock which
has an adjustable cheek piece and a few other precision minded features to boot. The gun will come topped with a muzzle brake
instead of just a thread protector because when you pay anywhere near the MSRP of 1339
dollars, you want to be able to just go shoot right? Savage also has a few new rifles out. Sort of showing their commitment to precision
shooting they have introduced what they’re calling the Precision line of guns. First in that line is of course, the 110 Elite
Precision. It’ll be available in 8 different calibers
and the key with these is the factory blueprinted action and that they are drenched in goodies
from MDT. The vertical grip, the mags and of course
the chassis itself is all from MDT. Pricing on those starts at 1999 and goes up
to 2149 for the larger calibers. Savage also announced a few precision rimfire
guns in the A and B line. The A22 is a semi auto and the B series comes
in 22lr or 22 mag bolt actions. Again, these come with MDT chassis and a slightly
elevated price tag at 600 bucks. And Ruger is back in the news! It’s been a little bit since they ended their
streak of news coverage but they are back with a bunch of new rifles. First, the Hawkeye Hunter. The hawkeye line of rifles is on the upper
end of their product offerings. So it’s neat to see them expanding on that. The Hunter version is a blend of classic wood
stock and rugged stainless action. They’ll be available in 6.5, 308, 30-06, and
300 win from the start. All of which come threaded for a muzzle device
and the 300 win version actually includes such a device. The MSRP on these comes in at 1099 dollars. And now, as you guys requested, Patton’s Armory. This is a segment where I grab one of my personal
guns and tell you guys about it. This is my M1 Garand, now this I acquired
because it happened to be sitting on a Shelf at a shop for Consignment and the price tag
they wanted was like 1,200 bucks and around here that’s about what you see on a decent-looking
Garand and I said what’s the bottom that that guy is going to take I want to I want to get
a deal on that if I can and I ended up walking out, I think I paid 8 or 900 bucks for this. I’ve never actually shot it, I should probably
do that some time. But it is a old-school Garand, I don’t know
if it’s all numbers matching I don’t really care to be quite honest with you I’m not a
big Milsurp-guy I just wanted to have one of these in the collection so I made that
happen. I know that one’s not super exciting but hey,
they’re not all super exciting, I think it’s a cool gun, either way. If you guys enjoyed this little look at my
guns, and want to see more, let me know in the comments. This time our questions are coming from YouTube,
I asked for your questions and you guys delivered! I think they are a fun thing. I have a hard time believing they would be
just as good as a factory made can BUT i’ve never tested that out so i can’t say for sure. If you’re a guy that likes to tinker, that’s
a solid option for fun. Clint Smith, Kyle Lamb and Chris Costa. I feel like those guys are all legendary in
different ways and have a ton of knowledge to be leached. If I was using an AR for home defense I would
use a defensive round. Probably a controlled chaos copper bullet
from lehigh defense. Yes absolutely. It would suck to do because moving isn’t fun
when it’s just a house, let alone an entire business with it. However, if things got bad enough and I couldn’t
do business here anymore, then yes I would absolutely move. Man that is tough to answer. I’ve never had that much money so it’s tough
to fathom how much is possible with it. I think I would try to work with groups like
FPC and GOA to determine the shortcomings of our current set up and try to push for
education and enthusiasm in all 50 states. I don’t mean to give those 2 groups all that
money, I simply mean, working with them as advisors to my efforts. We need lobbying, we need lawyers and we need
education. I don’t know the correct amounts to spend
but those are the things that stand out to me right now. I’m sure you guys will slam some great suggestions
in the comments as well. My friendly fire question to you guys this
week, i know a lot of you guys are still very much pissed off at springfield armory, rock
river, daniel defense, x-products and a few other brands, Sound off in the comments below and if you
want to ask a friendly fire question, send it to me over on! That is it for this week’s show. Guys if you disliked this video, hit that

    I don't really know; Springfield has been on the naughty list for a long time specifically because they were so scummy as to advocate for laws that would apply to basically everyone but them and Rock River. It's hard to say that they'd ever get my trust back even if they put their money where their mouth is. Once you dig yourself into a hole, it's pretty hard to get back out of it.

Roughly half of IL dealers have shut down do the licensing fee that they supported to save themselves. Hopefully those two companies financial shortcomings will serve as a warning to the rest of manufacturers. What could they do to earn my trust? Close shop, file bankruptcy, and leave the market.

    I own a Springfield Armory EMP 3 1911 . It's an outstanding firearm. The people, who work at Springfield Armory are also outstanding. Don't measure a company by it's owner or leadership! How many of you use Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Google (oh you watch these videos on YouTube owned by Google). All of the mentioned are anti-2nd amendment or huge monopolies dominating any small businesses putting those out of business. Some of these Tech giants are spying on you 24/7 activities then selling your personal information or data to any company for Billions of $. A couple are assisting our enemies with atrocities against their citizens but won't support the US government agencies.

    Springfield Armory company is more than a couple jerk management level individuals and stupid actions they perpetrated. Their greedy activities are Kindergarten level compared to most of those high Tech companies named.

    Although it would be great if all firearms manufacturers could always support the 2nd Amendment fully without regard for their businesses . It's not very realistic to think that any company can simply ignore the anti gun community and not worry that they may get laws passed in the States that you're located ,have no effect on your business . So you have to do something in Springfields case they did a terrible job of oversight and many things that shouldn't have been done in their name were .But after a public apology and the fact that they're no longer involved should get them back to just being another firearms company . Why is it necessary to hold a grudge forever consider the fact that if closely examined it's likely a lot more companies would fall in the same category of betrayers of the 2nd ,soon you'd just be buying from patriotic companies like HI Point LOL .

    All of these companies would have to make very obvious efforts to protect and defend the Second Amendment. Giving financial support to legal efforts fighting infringement laws would be a start.

  • Reply Ya Boi Dayron October 8, 2019 at 1:55 pm

    Anything more than fmj is perfectionism in action. If you opt for a better round, there is nothing wrong with that. Obviously, better performance is better period. If You are actually, seriously concerned about the difference it makes, you shouldn't be. You already have a highly effective round in a good platform, you are just eeking out the last few drops of performance at that point.

    Great stuff as usual.

    As far as the Winchester active duty stuff, this offering won’t change my practice ammo at all…unless the price comes in at or lower than the offerings I currently use. It also must have good reliability and decent accuracy. There are a couple Winchester offerings, particularly their steel (forged I think) line that is junk, and the white box stuff is pretty erratic from my experience. Their defend line is my go to carry ammunition though.

  • Reply HachiZenki October 8, 2019 at 3:42 pm

    Winchester uses a truncated cone round with a 'military grade primer'? Welp, if anyone wanted to test their pistol's feeding and ignition reliability, this is the round to do it with. All they have to do is take their shitty shitty shitty 'USA Forged' steel cases and put these rounds with these primers in them to make for a total reliability testing round. If your pistol can handle these, then it can shoot the crappiest ammo any 3rd world nation could domestically produce.

    I don’t know about SA. I think the market is so full of awesome options that I don’t think about them as much. it’s easy to just skip over them and onto another manufacturer. I’d say getting a bunch of the big YT channels to come together and discuss it live might get help. It’d definitely cause some camps but it would also bring all of the public details to light for the community and let switched on consumers move on in either direction.

    Hard question on the "gain my trust". I use a Daniel Defense and a Springfield XDM9 5.25 in 3Gun competition and I never thought much about the situations involving them. Daniel Defense certainly made be doubt them when they pulled thier products off of Academy's shelves for nothing more than " the AR15s are in the back" statement, but thier support of the NICS was "understandable but misguided". I support a strengthening of NICS but that specific bill was bad.

    On the other gun Springfield has that bad stain on thier record but have been pretty supportive of the Gun community otherwise.

    All in all I like these guns and the companies that made them, while not being the most aggressive 2a advocates out there, are supporters of the Second Amendment and I know they will continue to do so.

    What would the gun companies have to do to regain my trust?
    Nothing. Let me clarify:
    This is a stupid arguement for people to be having. I don't personally believe that any Mercantile organization really has the customers' best interest at heart, rather, they're just trying to make money on either side of the fence and playing off their allegiances wherever it will benefit them. My take?
    I won't say "suck it up and settle" despite the fact that our boycotts and grievances are meaningless (they ALL supply guns to various police organizations and military, they don't need US at all) but what I will say is…just stand by your convictions and don't shame others who don't agree with those ideas (within the gun community, anyway). I only buy what I can afford and what I think looks good and I don't make a lot of money. Brand is meaningless to me.

    we are a community need to 'relate' to those against guns, so we have to portray guns for personal defense for everyone, right now the media only shows the AR15 as a military rifle used for mass shootings..not an accurate stance, but we need grassroots and multimedia campaigns showing real personal prorection events that happened, and to accurately explain the 2nd amendment (muskets were never mentioned, and don't meet the force or govt we'd be facing now, etc)

    M1152 has an advertised velocity of 1320 out of a 4 inch barrel…..

    "Military grade" sounds good, that is until you spend most of your life having to use "military grade items", then you yearn for "consumer grade" items that last and or work properly. 😎

    As far as the company question. They would have to openly and aggressively lobby, support, and provide at the local, county, state and federal level for all gun rights, education programs and sporting activities in our public and private schools, the financial community, and other parts of our society. Then continue to do so.

    Friendly Fire Question: First, all current execs must resign…promote a product engineer or some other qualified internal employee to run the company; Second, donate all profits received since the betraying action to the GOA and one of the gun owner legal defense agencies as an endowment for poor gun owners; and Last: go on national television and other media and sincerely, without any Clintonesque evasions, apologise to all gun owners and all Americans for their condiscention, their arrogance, their selfishness, their extreme cynicism, and their utter disrespect.

    NO on M1152, I thought they are or were using 124gr 9MM ammo, much better than 115gr ammo IMHO

    To regain gun owner trust, these compromising companies need to be completely transparent with their customer base. They need to show us where their donations are going and make that information readily available. They should also team up with groups like FPC and GOA, and get active in the fight (and no, the archetype of compromise, the NRA, doesn't count as a legitimate gun rights organization).

    Nope. Practice ammo is all about price. Period.

    They’d have to refuse to sell to any state’s police departments that doesn’t sell same items to citizens.

    In my rifles my practice ammo and my "duty" ammo are the same, there is way too much variance in how rifle ammo performs. For some reason pistol ammo doesn't seem to have that problem, I'm guessing it is because of the shorter ranges and slower velocities.

    I use have been using Winchester 9mm, 380, and .22 for practice ammo…….I have been looking at others(one you advertise) because they are cheaper for practice, as long as they hit where I aim they're good.

    The answer to your question:
    Those companies showed their true colors. Human rights are not something you get to make a mistake with. Anything they do to appease gun owners is nothing more than pandering for money. I will not let nostalgia or personification of a corporation blind me. They are not your neighbor who accidentally did something. They are industry insiders and leaders who thought you were too lazy or stupid to care. There is nothing they can do that would get me to buy their products or promote their merch or even speak neutrally about them.
    Short answer: No. They can burn in hell

  • Reply Mirilidien October 11, 2019 at 12:58 pm

    Those companies would have to sponsor national training courses, hopefully aimed at new firearms owners to expand and inform the community, along with making a public statement, and actions to back it up, of not budging an inch on 2A rights for all individuals and companies.

    regain my trust? actively support and be involved in legislation that protects the 2nd amendment and returns rights infringed upon. AFTER those laws, legislation, etc… have passed then i might start to trust them a bit more.
