Week in Review:

Ryan: -Went out and shot the Heritage Rough Rider 22 Magnum. I think it needs a new mainspring and a good cleaning. The hammer falls pretty slowly and I get quite a few failures to fire.

-Checked out some cool guns at the Cabelas Gun Library! The Infamous Stipple Trigger Glock is still there as well!!


Weerd:  Got the woes settled for Megatron, my Walther P38.   Turns out it was the magazine,  and the Pro-Mag reproduction functioned BEAUTIFULLY!  No malfunctions at all….but the sights were about 10 inches low at 15 yards….oh well, it’s a collector’s piece, not a target gun.

Drink Segment: Order of Operations.   Just like in Math class, there should be an order you do things when mixing a drink.   The big reason for this is if you get distracted or need to attend to something else, you can pick up where you left off with no sacrifice.

Some people do a very good method which is start with the least expensive component first, and work up to most expensive,  that way if you make an mistake you don’t throw out anything spendy.

I personally like to start with the most vicious ingredient, and thinnest last.   This is so the jigger gets washed out and doesn’t leave any residue behind.

Either one works,  but the important part is ice the drink LAST.    You don’t want to get called away with ice in your shaker diluting your drink.

BTW I have a similar technique when I’m reloading, because I’ve NEVER done a full reloading session without SOMEBODY interrupting me.

Listener Email:

So something came up in a comedy show I was watching that actually got me thinking (the point of all good comedy) and I turn to you chaps for answers:

In a classic night-time situation when considering a situation you are forced to use your handgun defensively, how does report and muzzleflash affect your choice of calibre? I imagine if you're Weerd Beard and you whip out your 1911 in one hand and your 357 snub in the other ;) you should plan for some extensive ear-drum surgery.

Explanations, considerations gents?

Buffer Music:

Selection 1: “Change The World” performed by Ryan & patrick

Selection 2: My guitar solo during “Blue On Black” at a live performance.

Main Topic: Korth Revolvers with Grant Cunningham

Grant, when where you first exposed to Korth?

What did Korth do with revolvers that set them apart from other large manufacturers of revolvers?

It seems like there is a tradition of fine revolver manufacture over in Europe as well, with Manhurin and Korth. Was Europe as “revolver heavy” as we think it is?

How did you become involved with the Korth revolvers that are offered through Nighthawk Custom?

What are the different models?

What are the different features of each model?
