Hey guys first of great show. I’m the type of gal that much rather being hanging out with the guys than doing whatever it is those prissy bitches do. You guys make my long drives more tolerable. Not that I’m going to stop listening to you guys but wondering if you can recommend a good hunting podcast? I’m not talented the way Shawn is, I can’t watch YouTube videos while I’m driving. My talents are safer and arguably more enjoyable. Thanks and keep up the great work.
With how brutal the heat can be in the summer in my area, if I kept a gun in the car, would there be any risk of rounds cooking off?
Great show! Loved the special you did on the NRA recently. Keep at ’em. I have a Remington 7400 in 30.06 with an accuracy system forearm and top pic rail. The Tasco 3×9 that was on the rifle when I got it has gone bad. I’m looking for your recommendations on a replacement for the poor.
The gun is only used for hunting whitetail. I shoot maybe a box of rounds a year with it. Max shot is 250 yards. I shoot 185 grain federal whitetail rounds. Before Jeremy asks why it’s because of the distance I shoot and that is the heaviest round the rifle is rated for. That round has the most knock down power, grouped the best and is affordable. Thanks in advance.
I have two questions. Thanks in advance for the advice. Love the podcast!
1. My mom recently told me she wanted to get a gun for home defense. She’s 65, in a wheel chair, and has rheumatoid arthritis. She lives in Las Vegas so she’s “freer” than I am in California. What would you recommend for her knowing she has these limitations?
2. I’m looking to purchase a lightweight hunting rifle for wild pig and possibly deer. I already have a Ruger RPR in 6.5 Creedmore and if like to stay with 6.5 Creedmore but am willing to consider .308. I was looking at the Christensen Arms Mesa but would like to stay under $1000. What would you recommend?
So I’ll keep my question short and simple. I have a windham varmit exterminator. I’m wanting a lighter, more tactical style AR as well. Is the windham lower decent to build off of and just swap uppers as needed, or should I just build a completely different rifle? And to clarify, the rifle would only have the the fluted bull barrel upper whilst hunting. And what’s up Sean, I grew up in the Springs.
Hey, guys, I’m wondering why you dislike pistol grips and telescoping stocks so much? Especially Jeremy. I consider the telescoping stock one of the best improvements in firearm history; behind the automatic action and suppressor. A telescoping stock allows the shooter to quickly adjust the length of pull. Given that the primary use of a firearm, throughout history, is for hunting this is extremely important. Being able to adjust the length of pull based on the gear you’re wearing and shooters body size, allows them to be more accurate; especially when taking quick shots. Accuracy leads to safety. Consider why the military adopts any kind of technology. The primary reason is to be more effective at eliminating a threat. The second is to improve the safety of a soldier. A pistol grip is more ergonomic and therefore more comfortable allowing the shooter to hold the rifle more securely. Therefore increasing their accuracy, which makes them more effective and safer. Anytime I go hunting with new people I get looks of disgust when I pull out my modern sporting rifles. That is until they shoot my rifle and realize how comfortable it is. Unless they’re a real Fudd they’re instantly impressed. I think the more adjustability a gun has the better. In my opinion, every gun should come with a pistol grip, suppressor and telescoping stock. The anti-gunners say these modern designs are scary. I say that is because they don’t understand how they improve the safety of the firearm. I think that is the message we need to be promoting. Not that these are just in common use. I’m not a superuser like you guys so please educate me as to why pistol grips and telescoping stocks are so bad?
How much longer till we firebomb Boston dynamics?? Everyone worried bout the environment killing us and I’m over here watching Boston dynamics videos wondering what would be the best load out to fight back against the robots? I think mine would be a 458 socom and a desert eagle. What say yuns? #UULSisLIFE
