HGR 103 - Handguns of the Great War with C&Rsenal


HGR 103 - Handguns of the Great War with C&Rsenal Hello and welcome to Handgun Radio! I’m your host Ryan Michad from the wild woods of Central Maine, and this is your home for all the news, information and discussion in the handgunning world.

This week, I am joined by Othais from the magnificent historical firearms cache C&Rsenal to discuss the handguns of the Great War & their usage in the conflict!

Week in Review:


-Got my Werkz Holster and Mag Carrier in from Shan over at Werkz. It carries really well, and I really enjoy wearing it with the IWB clips installed. It tucks the gun close to the body and the body shield keeps me from having the gun rubbing against my side all day. Really impressed.

-Got to shoot the Volquartsen Custom Scorpion this past weekend. Really extraordinary pistol for its purpose. The trigger is one of the best I’ve felt and the fiber optic sights are fantastic as well. I shot it both with their LLV Compensator installed and a Coastal Passport suppressor as well. It performed flawlessly without any malfunctions and was extremely accurate.
