Drink Segment Let’s talk Glass!   Here are some glasses that will serve your home bar right.

Pint Glass:   This is your go-to beer glass,  you can also use it to mix highballs

Collins Glass:   A little smaller than a pint with straight sides.    This will be the traditional highball

Rocks Glass:   It’s like a collins glass cut in half,  tho often much wider.   Good for sipping spirits, or mixing lowball cocktails.

Cocktail Glass: My personal favorite,  a must for any cocktail served straight up.

Snifter: This is one you don’t hear much about.   It’s a bell-shaped glass with a small foot,  and it’s designed to drink spirits neat.  The shape of the mouth means your nose goes into the glass and it really intensifies the aromas.    This is a must for those who like sipping good scotch or bourbon.

Listener Emails:

Name: Kaleb

Message: Hello gentlemen,

The revolver in question is being imported by century arms and is called an Astra Police Revolver. I am unfamiliar with these guns and I am having some trouble finding information on them and hoped you could help with you vast knowledge.

I am interested in these revolvers as a sidearm for camping, hiking, and fishing here in southern Illinois. Basically, something I don't mind getting beat up, scratched, and maybe accidentally put in the mud of a fishing bank (there is a funny story behind that concern). However something that will go bang against a snake or rabid coon or possum. Any information would be helpful.

Thanks for your assistance and the wonderful show.

Thanks, Kaleb

New comment from Hesperus Enfield on Handgun Radio 150 - Cabelas Gun Library Trip & James Bonds Handguns:

The Ruger Super RedHawk variant you are looking for is called the Toklat. A local shop has one.

Also, I carry a Steyr M9. It's a very good gun. Sorry it's not a beretta 9000
