We get things rolling this weekend with one of the best giveaways we ever had. Gordon Bond of Bond Arms joins the show to talk not only about the history of the ever popular Derringer style pistol. This is the same type of pistol that John Wilkes Booth famously in his assassination of President Lincoln. Over 150 years later, Derringer’s remain popular personal protection choices and Bond Arms has been manufacturing some of the finest Derringers on the market for nearly 2 decades. Bond Arms is also sponsoring our July 2014 Photo of The Month contest and has offered up a brand new Backup in .45 ACP as the grand prize. Mr. Bond with a couple of popular Derringer’s from the Bond Arms line:

Next up, a very special in studio treat when our longtime friend, honky tonker and hunting buddy Zane Williams drops by. Zane will play a couple tunes off his Overnight Success record as well as a brand new one that you probably haven’t heard yet. We talk some music and the upcoming record.

Then we shift gears and get into Zane’s other passion- hunting. We’ll recap some recent hunts we’ve shared and also talk about Zane’s experience harvesting his first big game animal on our ‘Guns & Guitars’ weekend at Koon’s Canyon Ranch. Zane with his beautiful axis buck in full velvet- the smile tells it all!

We put a bow on this thing by talking some carp fishing (or ‘carping’ as it is commonly referred to as) with Benjamin Gossett – Fishing Manager at the Orvis store in Plano, Texas. Earlier in the week, Benjamin showed me the ropes on fly fishing for carp. I never thought these fish had much to offer the serious angler but hooking up with a 7 lb carp on my flyrod quickly changed my perspective! What a great fighting fish and a heck of a good time. Wading and sight casting for carp is challenging and rewarding- much like doing the same for redfish on the coast. Benjamin with a nice carp from our trip:
