Kevin C. - Recommended - Gun funny is a hilarious show about a witty jewish women (Ava) getting revenge on the people that allowed heinous crimes to happen (Shawn).

Lay off the white cake. 5 stars two, thumbs up and an entire hi point desk pop mag dump. That is how good it is.

Cody A. - Great show on an awesome network. The dynamic that Shawn and Ava have brings so much life to the show. They feed well off each other and their personalities are infectious, which makes listening to the show a delight.This show is a great blend of humor and knowledge on the firearm industry. Between the shared experience of Ava, Shawn, and their guests, you can't help but gain a plethora of firearm knowledge.
