A-arons Odds news of the week

CHANDLER, Ariz. – Police are preaching firearms safety after a Chandler man accidentally shot himself in the penis with his girlfriend’s little pink pistol.  According to Chandler police, Joshua Seto (Now known as Joshua Falsetto) , 27, was tucking a Pink Taurus 380 Compact Pistol into his waistband as he walked toward the a grocery store with his girlfriend, The gun went off. The bullet hit Seto’s junk and continued through his left thigh. Okay, oops on his part, well actually oops to his part. I was thinking of the top five possible headlines to this story,

  • 5 Man Plugs Penis While Pushing Piece in Pants
  • 4 Pink pistol produces prison purse
  • 3 Man has balls of steel, but everything else looks like swiss cheese
  • 2 Sniper finds worlds smallest penis and shoots it off

Does anyone else have anything they want to add?

Shooting challenge

June Shootout Challenge – Annie get your gun

Whose gun in history?

If a historic figure were to use modern publicly available firearms, what would they use?

This week: Jesus (baby, skinny, buff)


  • savage1r: Buff Jesus needs the Anzio 20mm. Finger of god.
  • Guest: Ryan – Colt 1903, it’s classy, and slim and concealable under the finest garments.
  • Aaron: Baby Jesus will be armed with Ghost gun, in honor of the holy ghost shooting 30 rnd clips of magazines, and with a crappy muzzle break causing any dry bush in the vicinity to burst into flames, like the burning bush. THINK OF THE CHILDREN.
  • Jeremy: A holy ghost gun….
  • Shawn: An M&P 9 Pro with a 5” barrel. Because HE KNOWS WHAT THE FUCK IS UP. Also happens to be what I use.
  • Guest: Dan – Jesus’ ability to turn water into wine was well documented, but one of the miracles that was left out of the Bible was Jesus’ ability to turn .22 into .50BMG, so Jesus would obviously use a Ruger 10/22.

Awesome show, it is really fun, informative, and a well polished production. I am fortunate to work at a job where I can listen to nine hours of podcasts. The top four that I listen to religiously are GunDudes, NRA news with Cam Edwards, Tom Gresham, and Student of the Gun. I discovered you guys at episode 41 and have enjoyed this and Talking Lead so much I’ve move you guys up the lineup to #2 (you guys)and #3. Unfortunately I can not participate in the drinking game (tank ranges and booze not a good mix 🙂 ) but I have a long weekend in front of me and 40 odd past episodes to catch up too. Guys keep up the good work. I’ve got Guiness to buy. Chuck Cherry

Very well done.

Rating: 5 Stars

This podcasts brilliance is in its simplicity. It is a common man’s discussion of firearms, gear, industry news, and just the right amount of politics. Each member of the regular panel brings a unique perspective to the discussion and the interplay between them is very humorous. The guest panelists are always relevant to the podcasts theme and are very interesting to listen to. The show format is a series of discussion segments that includes panel activity updates, gear and gun wish lists, odd stories, politics, etc. with a new segment recently added that discusses topics related to the female shooters in our ranks. Shawn, the host of the cast, does an excellent job with format and keeping the show moving in spite of Aaron and his humorous derailments. Lil is the moral compass of the crew and Nick can always be counted on to inject funny statements at just the right time. Savage is very informative especially with political news stories and Jeremy…well…if you ever want a punch to the throat he is your man. I cannot recommend this podcast enough and encourage everyone to support the shows Patreon project because these folks are on to something big.

    Jesus would have dual suppressed Mac 10’s on a shoulder rig! Why? Because even Jesus is a fan of Chuck Norris!
