We are basically going to go around and chat with each guest about what they have shot lately, what they are interested in for firearms in the coming months/years, and anything else they want to chat about.

 

 

(Brett) After researching CZ products for a couple of years, I purchased a Shadow 2

Holster purchased from Steadfast Holsters in New Hampshire

Been shooting local ZSA & Steel Challenge matches

 

(Bob) I recently finished a 9mm AR using Glock magazines so I figured it was time to own a Glock pistol. I just finished my Polymer 80 Glock 17 and took it to the range today for its first rounds.

Week in Review:

Ryan: -Cool Early video about James Bond handguns!

-And one I hadn’t seen, shooting every James Bond Handgun at a Maryland Range

Weerd: PLAGUE    Was sick all week, and the wife was sicker.   But today is the first day in about a week I felt pretty good so things are looking up

Drink Segment: Black pepper martini

Standard dry martini, but with Black pepper infused vodka

I use 3 olive vodka and I put about a tablespoon of black peppercorns into mason jars filled with 1.75L of Vodka.   Takes about 3 days, then you strain the peppercorns out and you have a tasty vodka.

Main Topic: Listener Email & other Stuff!

Listener Russ:

First time lone time.

Are you guys planning on going to the NRA show In Dallas? I haven’t been to a NRA show before, and I am somewhat local (Houston).

Listener Mark:

Handgun Radio and This Week in Guns are my favorite programs on the network. I a revolver fan, a Steyr fan and an eastern bloc pistol fan.

I have shot my Yugo M57 and CZ82 in IDPA matches. Ive also shot my Steyr S40, S9 and L9-A1 in matches.

My M57 from classic firearms has only a Glock style trigger safety. It ran like a beast during the match with no issues and good accuracy. The tiny sights did slow me down a little.

My Steyr S9 has a chopped down G26 size grip and magazines using a S40 basepad. Steyr should make that 13-15 round magazine that it needs. It carries very nicely with the cut down grip. I'll send a photo if you have an email address I can send it to.

Will any of you guys be at the NRA annual meeting in Dallas?

Listener Nate:

I’ve been listening for a few years now and I haven’t seen you guys do too much on 1911’s. With all the variations of 1911’s out there now a days I thought maybe a discussion about specific features like: ambi safety versus non, commander, full size, gi guide rod vs full length, scandium or aluminum frame vs steel, even the bull barreled 1911’s with no bushing. I recently bought a Range Officer elite champion in .45 and the breakdown is very odd in comparison. Just a thought for the show. Hope you guys had a great Easter!

 

Listener Chris, RE: the Ruger 9mm LCR:

Hey guys, listening to episode #191 you read listener feedback about the Ruger LCR 9mm. I had one of these and it was a very fun gun to shoot. Moonclips were awesome and made reloads super quick. If you notice though I’m speaking in past tense because I sold my LCR 9mm. What I found was that range and target ammo was awesome, but my preferred 9mm carry ammo is 147gr Speer Gold Dot G2...I just like heavy for caliber bullets. What I found when shooting the LCR 9mm one handed (either strong or weak hand) was that with the slightest “limp wristing” the 147gr bullet would start to walk out. This is because generally pistol cartridges don’t have the crimping that typical revolver cartridges have. By the third shot the bullets had walked out enough to lock the cylinder up and prevent further cycling. With a good two hand hold, or deliberately strong holding the gun with one hand this problem didn’t happen. Also with lighter 115gr ammo this never happened. But because I wanted it as a carry pistol, and in the heat of the moment you’re not always guaranteed a good two hand hold, and I want to carry heavy for caliber bullets, I decided to move to other options for a small 9mm. I was saddened by this as I am a revolver lover and really wanted the LCR 9mm to work for me. I just wanted to share my experience with you guys and the listeners. If you want to stick with lighter 115gr ammo I’m sure there’s nothing to worry about, but be aware this can happen with the heavier 147gr bullets.

Week in Review:

Ryan: Cool photo/article on TFB regarding suppressed pocket pistols

-Saiga/Tromix 410 shotgun converted to .444 Marlin with drum mag! One buffalo bore load is a 270 grain bullet at 2,250 fps for 3,034 ft-lbs of energy.  (Daniel wrote this in the comments section of the article: I'm still trying to remember who was attempting to convert a Vickers MG from .303 British to .458 Winchester Magnum. They were going to recycle cloth belts that had become too stretched to reliably hold the .303 cartridge.)

-Czech Striker SR-17 Pistol
 

Weerd:  Have another episode of the Assorted Calibers Podcast,  we also have a website and a libsyn account. For those listening live you’ll be hearing the first episode soon.  For those who are listening to this show on the FRN, it may be already published.

Drink Segment:  Blue Mai Tai.

I know I talked about this drink in another episode,  and there are a million and one ways to make this drink.     But I recently tried to remake it from my notes on my blog, and I wasn’t pleased with the results,  so I’ve re-perfected it.

2oz White Rum

1oz Fresh lime Juice

0.75 oz Blue Curacao

0.5 oz  Amaretto Liqueur

I also think bitters improve this drink in both color and flavor,  I first used angostura bitters, but the Fee Brothers Chocolate Bitters is really a think of magic.
 

Main Topic: Easter(n) Bloc Handguns

-Nagant Revolver

-TT-33 or the M57 Yugo

-Radom P-64

-CZ 52

-Makarov

-Croatian PHP Pistol

-CZ82

-FEG Guns (PA-63, P9R)

-CZ-75

-Got to check out a Seecamp .380. No Sights.

-Also got to check out one of the Grand Power P1 as imported by Century Arms many years back.
 

Weerd: No range time,  just got back from Vermont for a family function.    One thing this trip brought to mind is securing your gun when traveling with young children.

My personal method is bringing a small hard-sided locking box, and keeping the gun holstered as often as possible.

Drink Segment:  No new drink,  but I am currently enjoying a Vesper Martini with Fee Brothers Peach bitters instead of my usual orange bitters.   Not bad

Week in Review:

Ryan: Used the big blast target caps! They work awesome!

Want to handle the P365

Soldering sucks. Guitar is done.
 

Weerd:  Hit the Range,  Brought my FAL and the colt trooper,   but I also brought my SKS.   I had forgotten how much FUN that rifle is.    It’s not accurate, or very practical,  but it sure is fun.

Also my shop had Privi Partizan .308 battle packs for a decent price.   Buy in bulk all!

Also they had a grendel P10 .380 in the used case…..I ALMOST bought it, and honestly I don’t regret that.
 

Drink Segment:  Having the Ian McCollum collection tonight.      For those who've seen the InRange series on British Rationing,  Ian has two bottles on his table,  one is Laphroaig 10-year-old ,     and the other is Ransom Old Tom Gin.    I have both those bottles, and I must say, Ian has great taste!

Main Topic: STACKS!

No, not the guy from Goodfellas…..Stacks…..as in Single or Double stack.

First double stack? Savage .32’s & maybe Mauser C96 “double staggered row”

Single Stacks:

Colt 1903 & 1908

1911

Kahr

S&W M&P Shield (Kinda)

Glock 43 and 42

Double Stacks:

Sig P365

Basically everything else.

Glocks

Sigs

S&W

STI

Browning Hi Power

Feed Lips Single feed vs. rare double-feed lips aka alternate feed

Magazine reliability?

Grips feel better?

Does it actually make the gun smaller?

Main Topic: SHOT Show 2018 News & Listener Emails

Auto Mag Classic .44

The Auto Mag Ltd. Corp. announced it was now shipping the Classic .44 pistol. The initial pistols are the .44AMP Founders Edition guns with the 8.5″ barrel. This run of pistol is limited to only 77 units. The second run is already in production. The second run of Auto Mag pistols is open to pre-order ($3,495-3,795) and will be delivered within 60 days.

These guns have the look and feel of the originals, but the company claims they are “far superior” mechanically to the old models.

Listener Spencer:

Why no love for the LCR in 9MM?

Message: Kind of surprised that you skipped right over comparing the Smith 986 with the LCR in 9mm.

Sure, the Smith is pretty, but the Ruger will run nickel plated, self defense ammo in it all day long without having to use moon clips. Plus it's available as either DAO or DA/SA, and will probably be out in the 3" version fairly soon as well.

The LCR is also a much more comfortable revolver to shoot than any steel snubbie. In that short barrel a 9mm and a 357 Magnum have essentially the same muzzle energy, so recoil management is just as important as with a more traditional revolver cartridge.

And the trigger on the Perf-Center Smiths while nice, just isn't as consistent as the stock LCR trigger. To me a self-defense gun should have a fairly high pull weight. The Ruger does but it's smooth so it's not a problem. All Smith can really do is lower the weight.

And of course there's the price. For what that 9mm Smith snubbie costs, you could have two LCRs and a whole bunch of moon clips on top.

Anyway, love the show and keep up the great work.

Listener Rob

The last show I heard Ryan saying he uses dippers because his Lee powder measure doesn't like Trail Boss.

I also like the dippers,but use a RCBS Uniflow measure that is fantastic. Kind of spendy,but well worth the investment.

Thanks for the podcasts and keep them coming

 

Listener G:

I just wanted to forward you these low quality pictures I snapped over the holidays. (Will try to get better ones.)

A friend of a guitar student & friend of mine met a guy who collects forearms, but especially 1911’s. He actually loaned my buddy a few so we could take them out shooting- he said to really put them through their paces.

Don’t tell Weerd.

(This doesn’t include the Wilson Vickers he loaned separately.)

From bottom to top:

*A Cabot Commander S103

*Night Hawk 9mm Shadow Hawk

*Night Hawk Dominator 9mm

*Night Hawk Turnbull Custom VIP2

I wish I’d done a better job photographing, but it was a dark room & a slightly overwhelming subject!

I’ve got about 5 mags through each.

I’ll have to try to get some more & provide some details.

But as a brief overview- the Turnbull is one of the most beautiful pistols I’ve ever seen, & it feels as good as it looks. The Cabot is, frankly, better than one could conceive. Easily the best pistol trigger I’ve felt, almost more in common with a custom tuned  

bolt action. And, if you can believe it, is significantly smoother than a Night Hawk or Wilson.

Week in Review:

 

Ryan: Working on making some grips for the Model 19! Test run!!!

-Spent some time shooting a Henry Golden Boy .22 LR! Really awesome rifle!!!

-Shot dads Kimber 9mm more this weekend, functioned well!!!


 

Weerd: The Plague has hit Weer’d World.   Spent my range day sitting in my chair coughing.

Did have my Nephew over,  we didn’t get a chance to get out to the club, but did spend some time in the armory answering technical questions.


 

Shan:  High West Redeption Rye in my left hand.  This week, picked up a XDS 3.3 in 9mm.  Also just recently put together a P80 G19.

 

Drink Segment:  Variation on Blood and Sand.

2oz Rye

¾ Oz: lemon juice

¾ Oz: Cherry Brandy

¾ Oz: Sweet Vermouth

 

Not bad,   I certainly like the lemon over the orange,  but I do think the richer body of the Scotch plays better with these complex flavors.

Main Topic: Werkz Holsters Redux

 

 

Its been awhile since we had you on!

 

  1. What is new with Werkz holsters?

    1. Move to Idaho in 2014 - this has been a great blessing.  Love the people in Colorado, but we are quite well integrated with our little community.  We love the quality of life here.

    2. Continued expansion of pistols and lights/lasers we serve.  Up to 170+ pistols and 45-ish lights (some of which I’ve not yet listed on the website)

  2. What challenges have you encountered since we last talked?

    1. Time!  It’s a blessing to be so busy, but boy, I need more time to

      1. Finish our new website, which will have many more configuration options and be laid out more logically

      2. Provide a way for me to easily add a pistol or light/laser to our options mix across products.  This requires more automation.

      3. Time to build out new holsters for the M2 / M3 styles.

    2. Been selling on Amazon, which is a double edged sword

      1. Huge market opportunity

      2. Generous returns

      3. Less ability for me to understand and tweak if there are particular issues we need to resolve

    3. We are starting to grow to the point that finding the right employees is getting tougher

    4. We are starting to outgrow our shop space

  3. Have you done any more work with the 9x23 Win?

    1. Sadly, no.  I’m all in on the 9mm cartridge now, with my current EDC as a G19 with RMR and previous EDC was the VP9.  I may even put the 9x23 5” Benny Hill pistol up for sale as it gets zero range time.

  4. New Werkz Products?

    1. Continued expansion of the Origin, Minimalist, and Bisect product pistol and light selection

      1. Origin – built for OWB but adaptable to IWB, battle belt, backpack, etc.

      2. Minimalist – built for IWB

      3. Bisect – built for AIWB

    2. But the real focus is on our line of 3d scanned, CAD designed, and CNC cut molds.

      1. Allows us to give more features at the same or better price

        1. Adjustable retention

        2. Multiple carry positions

        3. IWB/OWB use

        4. Standard RMR cut

        5. Standard for threaded barrel drop through

      2. Enables me to train someone to build them in much less time than custom, again saving our customers money

      3. Higher degree of control over final product quality and fit/finish

      4. Process is fascinating…

        1. 3d scan the light & laser

        2. Bring into CAD

        3. Design the holster

        4. Cut the holster on a CNC machine

        5. Then production uses membrane-less forming for better definition

  5. Where do you see the market going based upon your customer demand?

    1. There is a lot of IWB demand

    2. AIWB demand is strong as well

    3. Need for quality, demand for increasing amount of features without increased cost

    4. Lights and lasers are getting smaller and less expensive

    5. We see the M2 and M3 holsters as our way of delivering more value to customers.

    6. What do you guys see as coming up or customer needs?

  6. Weerd Any questions?

Drink Segment: Pabst Blue Ribbon, and drinking what you like.

Main Topic: Polymer80 Pistol Build with Nick of We Like Shooting!

  2. You already have a background in building firearms, but was there anything you encountered with the P80 build that you hadn’t before?

  3. What would you classify the difficulty level at for the P80 build?

  4. What are some things that a consumer has to be aware of before starting one of these builds? (i.e. “i can build a “Glock” for cheap!” when it actually may be more expensive than buying a stock Glock.)

  5. What tools come with the build kit?

  6. What tools MUST one have to do the build?

  7. What are some other components that you have to acquire besides the P80 kit to allow you to make a fully functional handgun?

  8. Did you run into any reliability/performance issues with the P80 that you built? if so, how did you remedy them?

  1. What inspired you to write “Prepping for Life”?

  2. When you started writing the book, were there any things you had to learn yourself before discussing them?

  3. How does this book build upon the “best practices” that you’ve established in your prior works?

  4. You hear the statement “I don’t have enough extra time/cash/experience to prep properly”. How do you respond?

  5. We always talk about hardware, i.e. firearms, ammunition, carriers, food, etc. but what is the mental preparation that needs to go into preparing for dangerous/adverse situations.

  6. Sometimes, situations develop where you wont have ANY of your “prep gear”. This is a perfect example as to why skills are more important than tangible gear. What are some skills people should focus on?

  7. What are some things that people in the “Prepper Community” do or get wrong?

  8. What is your honest opinion on French Canadians?

Weerd: The Carry guns were getting cruddy so why clean them when you can get them REALLY dirty first.    Ran the 617,  S&W1911Sc and Kahr PM45

Also somebody must have listened to the collectible show.   At the club there was a listing for a Walther P99 compact in .40 S&W and he was asking for $500 which seems a bit steep.

Subject: P80

Message: Hey guys love the show. I've been listening for about a month now and was wondering if you guys have any experience with 80% polymer lowers. I've been looking at polymer80.com specifically the PF940C. Is there anything particularly difficult or that I should watch for? I just thought this would be a fun project, im not one of the guys that feels the need to have an unregistered weapon. Anyway any info would be great. maybe it could be a whole show. Keep up the good work.
