Comedy Corner
Two little boys were known troublemakers, stealing everything they could get their hands, even from the church. One day a priest stopped one of the boys and asked, "Where is God?" The boy shrugged and the priest repeated, "Where is God?" The boy ran out of the cathedral crying to his home where he hid in a closet. Eventually his brother found him and asked, "What's wrong?" The crying boy replied, "We're in trouble now! God is missing and they think we took him!"

Listener Feedback
Awesome source of God and Gun related content
5 Star by Rexrider - Sep 8

Been listening faithfully since first discovering the podcast. The chemistry of Doug and Troy make for entertaining discussions. With a focus on the christian firearms enthusiast the content is relevant and consistent. The guests have always been interesting and current. As a believer it is critical that we feed our minds with righteous content and avoid the worldly distractions. At the same time those of us who love guns need to have a voice in the marketplace and you guys seem to represent us well. Blessed to have found you.

Great show. I love the EDC Check, interviews and Bible verses. This is a wonderful place to get a biblical worldview on second amendment current events.

Angel Garcia
Hey Troy and Doug this is Angel Garcia again wanting to ask you both a question. As you know my beloved California is increasing gun restrictions and is now implementing a worse requirement on AR's that will force as of 2017. All who want to purchase an AR will no longer have a bullet button to be able to eject the magazine the only way to eject the magazine will be by removing one of the pins that holds the upper receiver to the lower receiver and breaking it open and either loading the ammo in that way or in some way removing the magazine. Therefore I have chosen to make sure that I buy a lower receiver or lower receivers(3) so that once the law goes thru I will be able to grandfather in my bullet button lower receiver. Ideally I would love to buy 3 100% finished lower receivers which are registered already. This would allow me to purchase "3 AR's." But, without having to pay a high amount of money up front and instead I can build my AR's at my pace. But, when I mentioned this to my wife she asked me why would you purchase 3 ARs and why I would want multiple firearms in the first place? I honestly did not have a legitimate answer for her as to why I would ever need to have three ARs for any situation. I am also looking to buy a few handguns for her and I. I honestly just want to know why would I want to have multiple fires beyond a firearm for my wife and one for myself. One of the reasons I gave her for as to why I wanted to buy three AR lowers is because in case one of the lowers has some type of defect in the future I can just use one of the other lowers. I am getting a good deal on the lowers that I am planning on purchasing about $120 a piece great manufacturer and great quality. So from your point of view Troy and Doug why should I have multiply firearms? Why should I purchase the 3 lowers that I will be grandfathering into California's never ending increase of gun restrictions? What are the reasons why I should have ARs at my disposal? What benefits assuming the right situation would present itself would having both an AR and a side arm be beneficial? I really want to be able explain to my wife these things because I know it's important to have multiple firearms but I just don't know the right reasons. Crime has increased by 100% in my city people in my neighborhood are being broken into by criminals and they are attacking in group 2 or more I really feel I need to pull the trigger on making my purchases I just want to make sure my questions are answered by experienced men of God and that have knowledge in the gun world. I want to make sure that I am ready to defend my wife and our home to the best of my ability if there would come a time that I would need to do so I pray it never happens but I don't want to leave it up to chance and I want to make sure that I honor God as the Head of my home. Thank you Troy and Doug I appreciate you both taking the time to read my message I really hope to hear from you soon God bless you and your families are and our great country.

An armed man entered the convenience store at the Obama gas station in Richland County, S.C. and attempted to rob the store. The clerk on duty responded to the threat by retrieving a gun. Upon meeting armed resistance the armed robber fled the scene.
The gas station was renamed after the 44th president of the United States in 2011. (WIS, Columbia, S.C., 08/29/16, 05/27/11) http://www.live5news.com/story/32860059/robbery-attempt-foiled-at-obama-gas-station-as-clerk-pulls-gun
