Canadian Patriot Podcast Episode 39 – AR15 Alternatives


This week Tyler, Marty, Gavin, and Andrew got together to imbibe all of the strawberry daiquiris. In the news the boys discuss the Strathroy bomber. More importantly they talk about alternatives to the AR-15 available to law abiding gun owners in Canada. If you don’t have an AR-15; you’re wrong fix yourself.

Forgot too add to my last email

just caught up with the last two podcasts, having returned from a family canoe trip to the Barron Canyon, and heard that I forgot to recommend a brew for Gavin. I hereby nominate ‘Beaver Valley Cider’ if he can get it.
Really dry, not sweet, and at 7.5%, it kicks ass!
(Can’t drink beer myself anymore because of gluten sensitivities….  )
While I’m at it, what can you guys enlighten me about hiking about in wilderness areas (Crown lands) with a shorty shotgun for predator defense? Do you need to carry a target in your back pocket to prove you’re (allegedly) ‘out target shooting’?
