If fictional characters were to use modern publicly available firearms, what would they use?
This week: The Muppets
- Kermit-Jeremy- Cabot Gun Jones Deluxe (cuz Kermit is freaking classy)
- Miss Piggy – SIG 1911 Tactical Operations .45 OK LIL??? – savage1r (This was a test – we can be friends again ~Lil)
- Animal – Shawn – Really he would just carry a knife, but as backup a Sawed off Browning O/U shotgun
- The Swedish Chef – Lil – The Automatkarbin 5, or the AK 5, the service rifle of the Swedish armed forces. Can anyone name the movie where the Chef onboard a US Navy Ship was really a SEAL? Lol (Under Siege (1992) ) You are welcome -Aaron
- Statler and Waldorf – Aaron – Because our two old grumpy men enjoy taking potshots and snipes at all the muppets they get a gun to match their age and intent the M1903 Springfield, a rifle that first saw service in 1903 and later became a sniper rifle.
- Gonzo – Carol – He needs a rifle because he is a showman and a daredevil. I don’t know many but I can recommend my Optimus break barrel. Only Gonzo’s will have chewing gum in the end of it so that it blows up on him and the end curls back like Elmer Fudd’s always did. Gonzo is fine, of course, as always.
- Beaker – dual full auto Mac-10’s – Savage1r
- Fozzy Bear – Zak – Mk43 Mod 1, because “Waka, waka, waka, waka, waka!”
- David Bowie from Labyrinth – Nick (never seen muppets, but labyrinth is Jim Henson, so it counts. Right?) no gun because his pants are scary enough.

User feedback and user questions
My wife just got her CCW and we are trying to figure out what works best for her to conceal her firearm. We are not big fans of purse carry for fear of arming a purse snatcher and we have little ones that like to go through her purse when not on her. We are thinking about trying the crossbreed belly band but with the vecro holster we are nervous about her wearing a loose fitting outfit and it falling off. Do any of you have any experience with this item or can you recommend another conceal carry item for a woman that dosen’t want to purse carry. Thank you.
Lil’s Answer: Larry, thank you for your question! I tend to agree with you and your wife about the purse carry option, and would recommend carrying on your person whenever possible. I have not tried the Crossbreed Belly Band, but I based on your question, I will get one and do a review for your wife. I asked this question on my Heels and Handguns Facebook page, and I did receive many responses – the most suggested holster was the Remora “no clip” holster. This holster works best with tighter pants, and is held in place by the pressure of the pants, the material it is made from causes it to “stick” to your skin, and it remains in place. Every lady who recommended it said it was the most comfortable. If you go back to Episode 005 of the WLS podcast, you will hear that one of the founders of the Rocky Mountain Tactical Ladies, Germaine, also recommends the Remora holster. Based on Germaine’s review and the overwhelming response to my question, I have a Remora on it’s way to me now for my Springfield XDS. Remora does have many other holsters with clips and other retention options as well. Besides the Crossbreed belly band, which would work better than a Waist Band holster if a lady was wearing something like a dress or very loose waistband shorts or slacks, there are a few other options to consider. The Flashbang Bra holster gets a lot of attention, and it does work, but there are a lot of variables, both in the build of the woman, the type of bra she is wearing, not to mention the shirt she chooses. (Watch YouTuber Hank and Lola Strange’s Review.) It is definitely an option, and I think that considering all the clothing options women have, the key to constant, consistent carry is to have a few different holsters to provide more concealment options. Some other options to consider are compression short or the tank-top holsters.
Here is a great video review of the Remora from YouTuber Faliaphotography: http://www.faliaphotography.com/p/more-photos-my-bug-out-bag-guns-etc.html

What shows to listen to on FRN
Now look, let me get serious here for a second. Real talk. You should be listening to all the shows on the Firearms Radio Network. I know I know, you don’t have 16 hours a day. Well maybe it’s time to reflect on that and eliminate some unnecessary things. Eating. Sleeping. Look, just make it happen and don’t disappoint the family.
- Shawn: I listened to my own episodes of this week in guns. When you are on the show, you don’t necessarily get a chance to really digest what the other guests are saying, so it was good to go back and reflect.
