Week in Review: 

Ryan: - Shot the Stevens .22 LR Ranger, the S&W M&P 15 AR, the Sig 226, Volquartsen & the Taurus PT22 Poly

Weerd: Lousy Weekend,  no fun for me

Drink Segment:  Dry Martini  because I NEED one.    Tonight my gin is Tanqueray No TEN,  which is their small batch premium gin.     Some premium brands really aren’t worth the added money, but this stuff is pretty damn good.  




Main Topic:  Ammunition: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Listener Question:

Name: Douglas

Subject: Revolvers

Message: Looking for a 22 LR revolver just for fun, plinking. What do you recommend? Any particular gun?

I have looked at Rugers, but not sure I want to spend that much just for plinking and for a non-defensive use handgun. I am looking at the Heritage Rough Rider single action. I know, you get what you pay for, but a lot of reviews do say its still a decent gun for its price.

Appreciate your time,


The Good:

Speer Gold Dot, Federal HST, Winchester PDX, Hornady XTP  

The (Maybe) Bad & Ugly (Or just misunderstood) 

Federal Guard Dog

Black Talons

Hydra Shok

Glaser Pow'r Ball (Maybe...Depends) 

Extreme Shock Ammo

R.I.P Ammo 

Liberty Ammunition Civil Defense  

Pistol Shot Loads (For Self Defense)

Shot in a rifled pistol/revolver
