Our panel tonight

Tonight I will tell one lie per introduction.  See if you can tell what it is.

  • Savage1r – Savage is a YouTuber who makes videos about shooting, philosophy, and do it yourself projects and avid collector of potato chips that look like celebrities
  • Lil Chantilly – Lil is Active Duty Navy, womens shooting advocate, long range shooter and gun blogger, at, little known fact, the movie Fight Club is based on her life story
  • Aaron – Law enforcement marketing specialist, and media contact for WLS. He still believes in the easter bunny and tries to shoot it every year,
  • Jeremy – Former Marine, instructor, owner of River’s Edge Tactical in Ohio and writing buffy fan fiction
  • Nick – Nick spends his day making high dollar rifles and barrels and his nights Searching for a way to tap into the hidden strengths that all humans have. Then an accidental overdose of gamma radiation interacts with his unique body chemistry. And now when Nick grows angry or outraged, a startling metamorphosis occurs. The creature is driven by rage and pursued by an investigative reporter.  We don’t like him when he’s angry.
  • Shawn – I’m Shawn, I’m an instructor, reviewer, competitor and Rosie O’donnell impersonator (Hi, I’m rosie o’donnell)

We have several special guests with us tonight.

  • Our first guest is a Youtube firearms enthusiast specializing in Guns Girls & Gear, and he was also a stunt double on the Lifetime TV Movie A Woman Scorned: The Amy Fisher Story – Friend of the show, our buddy, Hank Strange

  • We are also joined by Hank’s better half, who we hear once punched a bear because why the heck not, the lovely and talented – Lola Strange
  • Our final guest is a Youtube sensation with as many subscribers as the population of most cities. He does excellent reviews, offers thought provoking commentary, some of the best production value around and we heard he even once choked out a man using only his beard – MAC from the Military Arms Channel

Drinking game

Hey Guys and Gal ,

Love the show and have a question that might be more for Nick more than anyone else . When concealed carrying what do you do when you have to Drop a Deuce in a public restroom. I mainly carry a Glock 23 in a N82 Tactical ( Nate Squared Tactical ) holster which is easy to remove and set on a flat surface such as the tissue dispenser or baby changing table in the stall . Outside the waistband holsters seem more tricky. Just wondering what your opinions are and especially Nick
