Comedy Corner

Tell it to the Judge
Several women, each trying to one-up the other, appeared in court, each accusing the others of causing the trouble they were having in the apartment building where they lived.
The judge, with Solomon-like wisdom decreed, "Okay, I'm ready to hear the evidence...I'll hear the oldest first."
The case was dismissed for lack of testimony.

Listener Feedback

Hello Troy,

I love the GodandGuns podcast, I think I have listened to every episode.
I wanted to see if maybe you and/or Doug would in Atlanta next week for the NRA Annual Meetings.  I would love to meet you guys and shake a hand. I plan on being there Fri and Sat (28th/29th), I hope we can meet.
I hope your recent trip West has gone good, travel safe.

Best Regards,

I'm a podcast listener and I know you have been looking for one of these so I thought I would pass along.  Looks like Gilbert's Guns in Frankfort KY has one in stock.  I have made in store purchases there and had good luck.  I assume the online sales would be just as good.  This looks to be the one with the that uses glock mags.  It is $439.95.  I haven't priced them so I don't know how competetive that is but wanted to pass it along anyway.

Weekly Bible Verses:

My Refuge and My Fortress
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust."
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge;his faithfulness is
 shield and buckler.
5 You will not fear the terror of the night,nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only look with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—the Most High, who is my refuge—
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you, no plague come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14 "Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble;I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation."
Psalms 91
