Week in Review:

Weerd: I so wanted to take my P38 to the range….instead I took my daughter to the playground and recorded a podcast with you!

Ryan: Bought some aluminum magazines from ASC at my local shop. Seem to be of good quality! Tried a few rounds through one and it worked fine so I will have to number them and test them out.

TJ: I went to the range a couple of weeks ago to shoot my new (to me) CZ-85, and teach a friends girlfriend some tips on shooting. I also decided to clean all of my handguns the other day, which I don’t generally like doing, and discovered that the firing pin on my Lone Wolf 19 had broken off, so that’s a little disheartening, considering I may have carried it at some point in it’s broken state.

Savage1R: I played Pokemon Go and walked around my neighborhood aimlessly. Late at night. I was afraid for my life. Also, I’m going to try to bake a loaf of bread.

Drink Segment Whiskey Sour.    Super simple, and can be applied to a wide range of spirits.   1oz Lemon Juice, 2oz Whiskey (Bourbon or Rye preferred) and a dash of sugar, or 1/2oz simple syrup.

Shaken and served on the rocks….or add some egg whites and serve up in a Cocktail glass.    Believe it or not this is the original recipe.  

Also this Dutch Spirits Boomtown Bitters is really awesome stuff!   I’m drinking it with rye currently,  but I find it also adds some very warm rich notes to gin cocktails as well.
