Down Range tv 1,000 round challenge through a Para 1911 with Todd Jerrett 10min. 44 secs
Potential questions from Steve: How exactly do you do the 1,000 round tests (all at once, over time)? Are there any common themes with guns you test (parts break, trigger smooth out; night sight example) Are guns like wine, do they shoot better with age and wear? When do they seem to hit their prime? Have you had any unrelated educational moments? lessons on ammo characteristics?

Listener Q&A: Zeke: I'm considering buying a glock 17 or 19 4th gen and was wondering if you would do a show on the glock and mods. for someone who knows nothing about the glock? I'm not a fan of the grip but the lone wolf lower frame looks like it will fit better than the factory. great show look forward to listening each week. love that there is an after show as well thanks.
