Episode 005 - Mental preparation for self defense situations



Welcome back to the God and Guns Podcast. My name’s Mike, your host, (Zack) And I’m Zack, your other host.

Zack and I use this podcast to talk about God, guns, and the responsible Christian gun owners interests.

Today we’ll be talking about preparing ourselves, mentally, for self defense situations. Joining us from the great state of Texas is Steve which some of you know from Gun Guy Radio.


Comedy Corner:

Chuck Norris doesn’t lick postage stamps, he stares at them til they wet themselves.


The original for Alien vs predator was Alien and predator vs Chuck Norris.

The film was cancelled shortly after going into pre production. No one would pay nine dollars to see a movie fourteen seconds long.


Listener Feedback:

Rstpete from iTunes says: “As a gun person with limited religious knowledge I enjoy these podcasts a great deal. They are giving me a growing interest in religion as well as my firearms. you guys have me starting to read the bible, which still amazes me. Thank you.”


Weekly Bible Verse:

John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down ones life for ones friends.” (NIV)




Main Topic:

Self defense is a mindset, it is not just about the weapon you carry.


Avoidance is the best defense. Don’t put yourself in bad situations. {CHL is not a license to escalate, its a license to defend; not a superhero cape}


Make a plan, prepare, & practice. Failure to plan is preparing to fail. {Visualization} (Waterboy - Visualize and attack? haha) where can we find the audio for this?? Lets insert it! It should be in youtube.


Best Defense on Outdoor Channel is a great show for mental prep.
