User feedback and user questions

TJ asks:

I just had to start off by telling you guys that as a someone who just bought their first firearm and thought about making firearms a little side hobby, you\’ve made not only the entire industry so much more approachable and less intimidating but now firearms have become a new passion for me. I even just finished building the lower for my AR15 all by myself. So thank you for that. My question was that I just heard about this service for gun owners in Texas called \”Texas Law Shield\” and wanted to know if you knew a similar service for California residents like myself?

Feedback (paraphrased)

  • Buradori.j – Informative and entertaining to say the least!

  • MFZuber3 – A combination of Gun Talk, The Brady Bunch and Blazing Saddles!

  • Steven S. – Lil, will you marry me?

  • Spocahpanar – Thanks to Savage for putting me on to this.  It is the perfect blend of hijinks and humor while providing a quality informative show.  You include a host of talent and experience including the FFL, the gunsmith, the lady shooter, the bubberizer and the competition shooter as well as special guests.  I really like the whose gun segment.
