Great show

Great show. I look forward to every new episode. Legacy Media is Dead! Podcasts are the only way to get news and info nowadays.

Gnathand ,

Good info

Good info, but definitely part of the gun industry of needless spending. Few ordinary, working class folks who just want to protect themselves have $2500+ to spend on gun and the accessories just to start out. Every item of high quality costs $150+ that is “required” for gun ownership. The unwritten clause in the 2nd amendment states that “all people if they want to bear arms must be of middle-class or higher social standing to protect themselves because the working class people are not worthy of owning a gun.” Sheesh. These folks support this absurd idea

Racism in truck gun episode

I just started carrying and was looking for good resources. While the information is great, I really didn’t like the comment about “Tyrone and his baby mama.” Not gonna cry about it but I wanted anyone wondering to know that, no, if you’re a person of color who appreciates gun culture, they aren’t speaking for you. I don’t know why so many of the resources out here are political or racist, but it isn’t a great way to get people to start taking their safety into their own hands. By making comments like that, you push away people from the great information you put out, and that’s worse for everybody.

Please do better. Understand that we want to learn from the best, but we don’t deserve to listen to racist comments when we do.
