As you’ll hear, Lloyd Bailey had a lot of insights to share on gun ownership, running a successful podcast, and self-defense as it relates to the bible.

Lloyd Bailey’s journey with firearms began with a desire to protect his family. As a man of faith, he also found that there was a lot of misleading information out there about guns and self-defense in general. This in addition to many differing opinions on self-defense and Christianity.
