#9. I Look Like A Viking Terrorist

 iTunes   -   Stitcher Radio - RSS Feed

Lance hosts as Ian forgot he was supposed to be in the OC. He’s joined by instructors Jeremy, Trent and Christina to talk about responsibility, the cost of negligence, beards, and the concept of J.B.O (Just Below Operator). 

On a morse serious note we talk about the question of warning shots, some discussion on shooting and instructing… then the politics of protecting firearms rights because it can’t all be light hearted.

#8. Semper Fidality

Well, we’re back and we bring the answers the question "Where the hell have you been?".

Once that's dealt with there’s some compelling firearms podcasting as Lance and Ian see if they can hold a .308 round in their beards, we find out why Richy has “Peruta” tattoo’d down his arm, and we can not remember for a the life of us what Mom’s actually Demand.

We bring news on the Peruta case (CCW in 9th Circuit), and of course the legal system being what it is... that all changed the next day as Kamala Harris sticks her oar in again to delay things.

We apologise for the lower than usual recording quality, it's the first time we have recorded with all of us in the same room from one mic and the recording process could do with a little tweaking.

#6 - Drive By Bayonetting

 iTunes   -   Stitcher Radio - RSS FeedDirect Download


In this packed episode Lance invents a new crime that California legislation has already solved, we are all stunned that the media could be biased and ponder on how a Brit got enough practice to hold the record for longest sniper shot.

We also cover long range shooting and the Marines on the show get excited about a scope. We then discuss exactly how the ban on guns in the UK came about and compare it to how mass shootings in the U.S are dealt with.

The podcast ends with a story you could not make up.

#5 - Feinstein Ate My Hamster

In this episode Ian reads a poem about firearms, Jeremy realizes that the common denominator for his Springfield XD failing is Ian’s presence, Lance goes on an epic rant and FAST OC has a new service it will not actually be providing to help you get used to having your guns loaded.


There's no main topic this month as our new section inspires a long conversation and several rants.

FAST OC's Muppet Of The Month Award goes to:

Rep. Peter King (NY - Republican) for using the dead to push his political agenda.

The list of gun laws California has stacked on top of each other:

1. California already has universal background checks on private transactions.

 2. California already has a 10 day waiting period on firearms transfers. 

3. California already has a mental health database that is used to construct a list of prohibited persons. 

4. California already has magazine limits. 

5. California already limits the types of firearms that can be purchased and owned. 

6. In most areas of California, especially urban areas, concealed carry is all but banned. Santa Barbera is effectively no issue.

7. California guns have to be transported unloaded and in a locked box.

8. Approved handguns only - we have a “safe gun” list.


Emails And Questions:


Hello everyone, I am fairly new to owning guns. I have started by getting some training but having trouble getting over the barrier of keeping my Glock loaded as it doesn’t have a safety. I also want to get my carry permit soon so have you any advice about getting used to having a loaded gun on your person?


Thanks for the podcast, I like the way you are approaching it with the new shooter in mind.
