Ep. 111 What are the three main components of a firearm?

Do you know the three main components of any firearm? How about the difference between a bolt action and a lever action?
In Part 2 of our Firearms Basics, Sheriff Terry Thompson and Mike Voss from Smith and Edwards run us through the basic parts of a firearm. This is a great place to start if you’re trying to understand more about firearms.
We talk specifically about pistol grips, which is a feature that was included in the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban as something that could make a firearm be considered an “assault weapon”. Understanding what these terms mean is essential to having a productive debate about firearms.
Special thanks to WEBER COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE and Smith & Edwards for helping us out with this episode!
