Comedy Corner
A Hymn with Punch

A preacher was finishing a rousing sermon against the evils of drink. His voice filling the church, he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

Growing more impassioned, he shouted, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

Finally, he thundered, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river." He sat down.

The song leader then stood up and announced, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365: 'Shall We Gather at the River.'"

Listener Feedback

Greetings from the Peach State
5 Star by Marvin Fore - Sept 14
As a fellow Christian I find it very refreshing to see other men openly praising Jesus. I really enjoy the podcast and think these guys are a great team. I have enjoyed the variety of the topics they cover, not just boring springs and trigger gun talk. A very down to earth opinion of two guys that are not employed in the gun market. Thank you both for taking your time to share with us your valuable opinions. I believe our country needs more men like us in our countries current situation.

God Bless and Stay safe

From Kaleb Olson

Troy and Doug,
Hello, my name is Kaleb Olson and I have been listening to your podcasts for a few months now. I am very passionate about firearms and am a proud follower of Jesus. I am a junior biology major in college and have been blessed to be able to lead a small group for a college ministry called SALT Company. My mentor and I had an extended conversation about concealed carry and self-defense as Christians. We were wrestling with the topic because if we truly have put all our trust in Jesus Christ than who are we to take our lives into our own hands by defending them with a firearm or other self-defense weapons?

One of your podcasts I had listened to, you guys made King David the example. King David killed many men and many in defense for his life. King David is obviously considered a man after God's own heart but as I stated above, we couldn't help but to feel like our trust might not be in the Lord if we choose to defend ourselves. I mentioned your podcast to my mentor and we mutually sought to get both of your input on this topic. I already know your answer but I would like your explanations. I would greatly appreciate it.

I would also just like to extend my sincerest thanks to you for using a platform such as podcast to boldly spread the gospel. If I may, I'd also like to make a prayer request. Our church is growing at an astounding rate and as such we were looking for a new building. It just so happens that another local church was considering finding a new location and we are actually "swapping buildings". I'd ask that you pray that we are able to raise the funds to make all the payments on the new building and that it won't limit our ability to do ministry by cutting our current budget too tight.

I plan on leaving you an iTunes review in the near future when I get some time and figure out how to do it! Lastly, I'd like to commit to buying a patch, t-shirt, and one of the decals! I'd like the t-shirt in medium please. I noticed you have them up on the website store but I figured since I was already in contact with you about this that I'd just order them through the email! So I'd like your instructions on payment.

Once again, thank you and I am greatly looking forward to your input.

God bless,

Kaleb Olson

6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest, 7 and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth.

NRA Armed Citizen

70-year-old man fights off home invader, KRQE, Albuquerque, N.M. 09/09/16

A 70-year-old man who walks using a cane was at home in Tijeras, N.M. when an intruder broke into the house. The home invader attacked the elderly man with a hockey stick and a piece of bamboo. The elderly man responded to the attack by retrieving a .38-caliber handgun and shooting his assailant, killing him.

The elderly man’s neighbors were supportive of his actions, with one telling a local media outlet, “Good for him. That’s awesome that he was able to think that fast and he was able to protect himself.” Another neighbor added, “Thank god that he’s armed and you know, most of us up here are. I hope people see this is not a good place to come for sure.” (KRQE, Albuquerque, N.M. 09/09/16)
