Week in Review:  

Ryan: Played Gigs

-Unknown Soldier Pistols

Weerd:  Children’s birthday party.  Been a LOOOONG weekend. On the gunnie side,  haven’t had much time to hit the range, but I noticed the last time I was shooting I was pulling shots with my 1911.     The only excuse I can think of is lack of dry-fire practice. So since I have this 1st Gen M&P, and those crappy triggers improve with dry-fire,  this is a match made in heaven.

Drink Segment:  Old Overhold 100 Proof rye

Listener Email:


Dear Ryan,

Love the show, the banter, the insights, and knowledge in every week's

episode. Being an Alabama football fan I noticed today this news story

about the former coach Mike DuBose, who accidentally shot himself in

the torso with his .38 while mowing the grass. He carries while mowing

'in case of snakes.' This made me wonder how this could have happened,

i.e. an accidental discharge of a revolver while carrying. I know

you're a revolver man and regularly carry; any ideas about this

particular case based on the limited information available and any

hints for safe revolver carry? Article linked below.





Name: Skyler

Subject: Episode suggestions

Message: Hi guys, I’m a loyal listener of the podcast and I have a suggestion for a main topic. C&R licenses? How to get one. Are they worth it? How difficult are they to maintain? WHY DOESNT RYAN HAVE HIS YET?! If nothing else I hope this gets Weerd to start asking about it every other episode. Thanks for your time and I really appreciate the podcast. You’ve really helped to provide a new gunner with solid information in an entertaining way. Keep up the great work.

Name: Mike

Subject: Taurus

Message: Enjoyed the show on Taurus. My first carry gun was a Taurus pt111. Even bought a 24/7. The pt111 would not shoot a full magazine without a misfire. Shipped both back for recall. It took them ten months to get the last one back. What a lack of customer service. I doubt I would ever purchase a Taurus again.

Name: Mark


Message: I don't own any Taurus products but the show was pretty incredible. I would like to see similar shows about other manufactures.

Like SIG Sauer, Steyr, F B Radom, Zastava, CZ, FEG, Star, Para Ordnance, Heckler & Koch, Nambu, Lahti etc.

You guys are doing a great job. The Best program on the network.

For Weerd, I haven't found a bartender anywhere that can make a Sazerac.
