Main Topic: God and Guns - How does self defense and personal protection relate to Christianity
Dustin: Give us a little back story on your faith
Rob: Give us a little back story on your faith
Common misconceptions about Christians and self defense. Such as: "turn the other cheek" Matthew 5:39
Doesn’t carrying a gun mean we don’t have faith in God to protect us? - fire extinguisher? lock doors? not foolish
If we just love one another everything will be ok... right?
Anti-gun Christians - Just misguided?
God actually calls us to protect ourselves and loved ones.
Serving in the military doesn't contradict our beliefs
Carrying a gun/knife legally for protection is not contrary to Christianity.

Listener Email: Chris: Hello, I am just getting into the black guns. I purchased a DPMS 5.56/223 with no rear sight, just flat rail. I thought i am looking for a good match grade handle rail for CMP style competitions. I paid around $700 brand new, looking to break it in this weekend. I will pick up some magpul flip sights for now. I just got screwed for $55.00 on some Chinese made handle sight that wouldn't even fit my rails, go figure. I tried to take it back to Biff's gun world (No refund policy). The rails on mine must be different, due to placing the sight handle on guns he has in his store it worked fine. I Took the handle back and tried it again on mine, and still had play. From what I figure there must be different rails systems for me to figure out.
Anyways, I would like a recommendation for a match grade handle rail, and a recommendation for a good optic system for this DPMS under $700.00 gun. I plan on some day getting into the 3 gun world.
Steve: Just started listening to your podcasts a few weeks ago. I love the laid back atmosphere, the joking, and as everyone else has said it - no politics.
You have had some great guests on and I really enjoyed listening to Evil Roy and Randi, Dustin's interview was outstanding and fun :) , and the gun dudes brought some more humor to the show. Why is it that I find the podcast most enjoyable when folks make fun of Zack? Hummm, that is something to look into and needs to be further studied and brought up over the next few weeks ;)
I notice you all are into the poly guns. Any chance you guys are going to discuss 1911's? Or have they become too "trendy" the past few years? As an owner of several poly's in multiple calibers and a couple heavy steel 1911's, I m most accurate with the 1911's. I love the mag capacity of the poly's, they are fun to put mass rounds on steel...but that 1911 trigger just can't be beat for me; especially my Les Baer. Just curious to know your thoughts on them. Steve also asks: Heh, I am interested to hear what Zack says. During the show you both did about the calibers, he made a little snide comment ("oh you're in that camp" or something like that) about .45 ACP....like only a poly "long live the 9mm!" fanboi could. You could tell there was so much more he wanted to say ;)
Bob: I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the “Cowboy Up” podcast. I have a VERY small budget and have been building a collection of “Cowboy Guns”. I have a Colt Cowboy and a Rossi 92 ( both in 45LC.). Now I need another hand gun and a double. The hard part is finding gun leather for a BIG guy on a small budget. Your show gave me some great knowledge. Thank you I got my first lesson from two of the world’s best. Keep up the great job.
Lyndon: Good show. But I'm getting tired of all the tactical stuff. How about a show dedicated to hunting arms or hunting calibers. Not just off the top of your head stuff as you often do, but well researched info and history. For instance, what calibers are derived from other cases? Who was Ackley and what did he improve? .257 Roberts? What about hunting bullet types? Kinetic energy vs. knockdown? Cases that are rimmed or rebated. Why? What is, really, a magnum? Weatherby? Scopes? 30mm vs. 1 inch. Objective lenses. This type of stuff is real world info that would appeal to a broad base, not just cops or guys shooting 3 gun or whatever.
Itunes Reviews: No new :( But we do have 79 total written reviews. :) We did get an “after show” review
