    OMG.  OMG.  My 2 favorite shows together!!!

  2. Doug_in_NEVADA

    When I first became aware of the FRN, I listened to about 1 minute of your show and hated it.  I thought Jeremy sounded like Peter Parma’s more retarded half Brother.  For months I would not listen and downloaded other FRN shows skipping buy the WLS logo.  I have to admit I did not give you guys a chance.
    For some reason I downloaded an episode and I listened to the whole thing.  Holy shit!  This is one of the best gun podcasts on the net.  It took getting to know you.  Even Jeremy is cool.   That Boston Rowdy intro is funny as Hell.  I am glad I gave you a second listen.  I like how the shows are long.  I am sorry I misjudged you.  Jeremy, I am only kinda sorry.

    Doug_in_NEVADA Hey Doug! I am so glad you gave us another listen! We really appreciate comments like this. Keep kicking ass!

  4. savage1r

    You aren’t wrong about Jeremy.

  5. akrieger

    Doug_in_NEVADA admit it, I am your favorite! Doug, man, Doug, Buddy! Doug, Pal, did we just become Bestys? BFFs, so glad you gave us a chance, and super glad you liked us! Thanks for listening.

    Arron,  I like how you display fake interest in your guest’s endeavors.

  8. akrieger

    Doug_in_NEVADA akrieger haha, Doug, I have no interest of my own, I am always amazed at what other people do, nothing fake there, in fact this conversation is the highlight of my day (truth), tell me more about what you are thinking, I am inthralled with it. 

    No really, I hope I dont come off as sounding fake.

  9. herrinx

    Doug_in_NEVADA akrieger haha! That’s just how he is. He is sincere, he just plays a douche on the show… and in real life…

  10. savage1r

    Doug_in_NEVADA akrieger Honestly, this is the most fake interest he has ever shown in any conversation.

  11. Doug_in_NEVADA

    I will call it feigned interest. Funny as Hell, to me. Entertaining. You guys are great. Foul mouthed, gutter-minded gun people who are not stuffy, who pick on each other in good fun, at a 13 year old level, which happens to be the age where I stopped aging mentally, so it works for me. All great in your own way, no matter how sad and pathetic. Is there an address where I can send you some gun swag of my own? Shirts and stickers?
