Thank you so much for including Savage on the show, I’ve been a fan of his since he played Corley on wonder years. It’s great you opened your hearts like that. Peace and love to all of you, in John Moses Brownings name we pray.

If you enjoy listening to a show that’s funny, honest, brutal, and occasionally hosted bourbon hammered AF, then this is the podcast for you.

Great panel

RATING: ★★★★★

An “informative” firearms show with a fantastic panel: a drunken pair of ears, Murr from Impractical Jokers, redneck Dwayne Johnson, caveman Matt Damon, diabetic Mandy Patinkin, and actual woman Caitlyn Jenner. Love the show, guys!
