User feedback and user questions

Jesse C.

Please forgive me if you have already covered this but I am looking for a new holster, my daughter stole my PJ Holsters Kydex holster.  So, there are lots of kydex holsters out there and it’s really hard to figure out why one is better or worse then the other.   It would be nice if someone tried out 3 to 5 of them and did a comparison?   I know I have learned that the Kydex holsters with linings are bad because the lining holds moisture and grit that wears on the gun but beyond that they all seem the same to me.

Keep up the great work guys,  the wait between casts drives me nuts!


Feedback (paraphrased)

  • Jim in Phoenix – you have a listener for as long as your show is on the air.

  • Amber Dextrous – I spoke to Jeremy’s ex-girlfriend, she says their not meant to be partners but she’s hoping they can still be cousins.

  • my nicknames have been taken – Jeremy, you’re kind of a dick.  Keep it up, it suits you.

  • Remington H – nothing better than low brow humor and firearms talk.

  • Pigskin Hero – good mix of information and BS, favorite firearms podcast.

  • Bukmaster2010 – Shawn: an anderson AR with a gizzel trigger.  Aaron: a hi-point cf380.  Jeremy: a gun that will not shoot because he blew the receiver and can only buttstroke and muzzle thump.  Lil, knights SR-25.  Nick, that homemade rotary shotgun. Savage: that duct tape cannon from mythbusters.  Rhody and Zal, a fight to the death for a keltec.

  • UT steve – the first time I listened I thought these folks were crazy and wondered why anyone would listen to all the irreverent ravings.  However I gave it another try and they began to grow on me, kind of like a fungus.  But penicillin is made from something like that and it’s good so give these guys and lady a listen.

  • BoxerMD731 – somewhat informative and funny show.  The flow of the show is awesome.  What a podcast should be.

  • Hjalmartthetubaman – 3 STARS – due to all of the totally unnecessary and unrelated stuff like the drinking game and whose gun.  too much talking over each other or the incessant laughing.  I only listen because when not doing the above nonsense, they actually do have good things to say about firearms.
