Best Podcast Ever

Rating: 5 Stars

I have found that this group of people put on the best podcast of all times. I listen to a number of different shows and none can top this one. They truly represent those who like shooting. It doesn’t matter of your sex, sexual orientation or race as they don’t discriminate against any. If you get your butt hurt easily or offended by others and their open views easily then this show is not for you. They have guests from every aspect of life on and I find it is truly refreshing to listen to and look forward to it every week. If you have tried this show before and didn’t like it try it again and listen to it fully. You will be glad you did. Great show guys. Larry Cunningham

    Aaron, I’ll be travelling from Toledo to Farmington Hills here soon. I’ll have to detour your way. We can grab some Shawarma and I’ll bring the my SCAR 17 and we’ll do a little urban building clearing. Shawn, I’m with you, I want a Tavor too but only because i have everything else I want. No way i could pick that over my SCAR. Jeremy you say youre “a big guy and want the scar heavy because it’s a heavy gun” but come on, it’s less than 8 pounds! How many semi-auto 308s can claim that? Whats your m1a weigh? Great show guys even without Lil there.

  2. herrinx

    gunrunr82 This one weighs more than 8 lbs! haha Yeah, I really want a Tavor. I like them a lot. I like SCAR’s too though.

  3. JeremyP

    gunrunr82 No I said I don’t mind if it’s heavy because I’m big. Also I hate bullpups.
