Ryan Michad: First of all, love the show and all you guys do. You really put on a very professional and well done show, and I really enjoy listening to the latest episodes, as well as past episodes and after-shows. The exchanges between you and Zack and Steve and the rest of the crew are informative and hilarious all at the same time. I'm not sure if this information is out there somewhere else, but I was wondering if listeners are able to call in and speak with all of you guys when you do the live broadcasts. (I believe you do them via Google hangout?).
I have started a YouTube channel where I shoot revolvers, semi-autos, and other firearms that are classic & modern. I also have a friend that has many NFA items, so I sometimes get a chance to review those items as well. Recently, I invested in a high-speed camera, which has allowed me to get high-speed footage of some classic and modern firearms that you might not see filmed in high-speed elsewhere. While my production values are quite low compared to shows like yours and channels such as Hickok45's, I really enjoy being able to show others some classic guns that they might otherwise not see. I appreciate the time that you put in to produce all the shows on the Firearms Radio Network. The passion you have for the network really shows through in the final product.
My YouTube channel is www.youtube.com/michadsshootingbench if you are interested in checking out any of my videos.
