Heath is on to a good start.
Heath picks some good stories to talk about and I agree with his position on many subjects. The only negatives I have is that he talks a lot about his personal life, though it is his podcast so why can't he? Also he complains about not having funds and then a couple episodes later tells us of his new kimber he just bought and about thinking of his next gun purchase. Also Heath has trouble pronouncing some words, which gets a little annoying once heard repeatedly.
Best podcast on the subject
I love this podcast. The host delivers a lot of information in an organized, easy to understand fashion. Aaron doesn't pretend to be the know it all authority on everything about guns (some of the others do). Although he does know a heck of a lot about guns, carrying, common sense and the laws relating to carrying. I'm finally woke up and came to the realization that I need to carry to protect myself and my family. In fact I shouldn't say I "need" to carry, rather I should say I'm obligated to carry because as a father I have a responsibility to protect my home and family. Being new to concealed carrying, this podcast covers the bases that are important when making this big decision, like what to carry, how to carry and why everyone who can should carry. If you carry now, or are considering it, subscribe and don't miss an episode.
A good podcast
Aaron Heath does a good job, knows his guns and supports the good guys. Keep it up dude.
