Smolenski and Alcazar Confirmed as Special Guests with On Target Radio

( Prepared to defend, support, and promote females and firearms, special guests Marilyn Smolenski and Beth Alcazar will be featured on the On Target Radio program Sunday evening, April 19, 2015, from 9:00—10:00 p.m. on AM560 THE ANSWER.  The Chicago-based, conservative talk radio show, hosted by David Lombardo and Gretchen Fritz, is known for covering Second Amendment issues and will devote the entire, upcoming program with Marilyn and Beth to women, guns, and personal protection.

“I’m honored for the opportunity to share some of the issues and thoughts that are close to women’s hearts regarding safe firearms ownership, usage and training,” states Beth, NRA- and USCCA-certified instructor, featured author in Concealed Carry Magazine and author of the “Pacifiers & Peacemakers” blog. “Undoubtedly, there’s so much more to making the decision to carry a firearm than simply figuring out which gun to purchase. There are numerous physical, emotional, financial, and legal aspects to consider.”

Marilyn Smolenski, founder and owner of Nickel and Lace and co-host of the Firearms & Fashion Show, will add her years of experience and expertise with concealed carry to this special, roundtable discussion.  Marilyn knows, firsthand, the unique issues women face when they want to carry firearms… but not sacrifice style.  “It’s wonderful to be able to share not only firearms safety and knowledge but also high-quality, concealed-carry products,” Marilyn says.

Beth Alcazar and Marilyn Smolenski will be live, in studio for the April 19th radio program, but both can also be found at the forthcoming USCCA Concealed Carry Expo, May 8-10, 2015, in West Bend, Wisconsin.  Alcazar will be presenting at the Mother’s-Day-weekend event, and Smolenski will be serving as director of the Concealed Carry Fashion Show, scheduled for Saturday, May 9.
