Last week we announced our patron project and we’ve seen huge support from you!  Thank you so much for believing in what we are doing!

To recap, we have a ton of things that we want to do for our audience and we are constantly trying different things to bring those ideas to life.  We have launched a campaign to raise money to improve the show and give back to our audience.

We are simply asking for you to pledge some money per episode.  50 cents, a dollar, a nickel, a penny (aaron), whatever you can do.  It only amounts to a few bucks per month but here’s what you get.

What do you get?  There are all kinds of rewards and we will constantly be adding to the list.  Patches, shirts, swag boxes – SO. MUCH. STUFF.

If you enjoy the show and want to help, please visit https://welikeshooting.com/pledge and see what we put together.

A-arons Odds news of the week

More babies being named after firearms, according to the website babynamewizard.com/blog children being born with gun related names is up more than 500%. Will these kids be banned from schools because of their names? Babies Receiving Gun-Related Names, United States

What would you name your child, if you could give it a gun name?

I would name my kids HI-point because I expect them to work, but I dont really have that high of an expectation for them.

This week: The Breakfast Club

  • Andrew Clark  – Shawn – Fully tac’d out Daniel Defense AR-15.  Really expensive and awesome gun with every attachment you can imagine.
  • Richard Vernon –  Savage1r – Taurus Judge. Douche gun for a douche.
  • Brian Johnson – Kyle – M203 Grenade Launcher. Who brings a flare gun?!
  • Carl – Nick – Carl is a janitor, so he gets a GE Minigun so he can “mop things up”
  • John Bender-Collin- He gets a 9mm Hi-point. went with this because you all love to hate the bad kid/gun (drink)
  • Claire Standish – Lil – Why was Claire in detention?  She went shopping.  What for? A fully custom 1911 Night Hawk.  She was mad at her teacher for putting her in detention, but then she found out that he would take her shooting and she got a little crush on him.
  • Allison Reynolds – Aaron – Any gun she could steal. But probably a mosquito .22 that she took from her moms purse. Because that is all her feminine hands could handle.

We Like Shooting Activism Alert

Thanks for the heads up from Collin P.


If you could spread the word we need your help fighting the good fight. Here are the bills if you are interested.


They go after conceal carry making the towns may issue instead of shall issue but basically forcing the applicant to go through the AG’s office( may issue)

They put together a strict assault weapons ban that limits mags to 10 rds, banning all mags over 10 rds, one cosmetic feature

Changes our constitution from a no registry state to making a registry( like ct ny nj and ca).


There are other things added as well but those are the biggest ones. We beat back the gun control activists last year. This year they are coming at us even harder with a ferocity that we haven’t seen in the past.
