Ryan: Listener Email

Name: VN

Subject: Spare cylinder for S&W 64-5

Message: Hey Ryan and Weerd! What do you guys think about buying a spare cylinder for an S&W 64-5 and have it cut for either .38sp or 9mm moon clips? I just bought the gun and the idea hit while shopping around for spare parts. It doesn't have counterbored chambers, so the case rims don't sit flush--I don't know if that matters.

 

Weerd:

Range trip, turns out “too much trigger finger is a real thing”

Listener Graham:

Subject: poop and carry

Message: Hi folks.

I am right handed and appendix carry to the left of my belt buckle. If the deed must be done in public the procedure is as follows:

Enter stall

About face and secure facility.

Undo buckle and lower belt before the hip.

Refasten the buckle.

Apply slight outward pressure while lowering pants and underwear to just above knee.

Sit down.

Perform.

Wipe.

Reverse procedure.

The firearm remains out of sight and secure as long as there is a slight outward pressure on the belt from your knees.

On a side note: where do you guys keep your wallet and knife? My wallet is in my left front pocket and my fixed blade knife if behind the belt at 6 o'clock, folder and cell phone in right front pocket.

 

Listener Doug:

 

I have a hypothesis about your shotgun failing to fire 3" shells.  

Perhaps the chambers are a little short, and/or the shells are a little

long, just enough that the shells aren't headspacing on the rim, they

are headspacing on the front of the shell.  That could cushion the blow

of the firing pin, and cause a failure to fire.  If you are willing to

sacrifice a shell for science, cut off an inch or so of a shell, empty

out the contents, and try firing the primed shortened hull.

 

(Another possibility is that whatever it says on the barrels, your

shotgun is chambered for 2 3/4" shells.)


Listener Tate:


After I did my submission for "Miami vice loadout" I character had a shoulder holster. Now I'm dreaming about shoulder holsters. If I remember right you carry one correct? I'm wanting to get one, I'm thinking that I really want a leather harness but with a kydex holster. Any recommendations on where to look?

Episode for Daniel: Guns of Sears!


’m road-tripping from Richmond-by-God Virginia to NYC this summer for a Yankee’s game. Now, that means I’m traveling through Maryland, Pennsylvania, and of course, into New York State, and I typically like to at least have my subcompact 9mm with me, on the road.


I know none of these states honors my Virginia concealed carry permit (at least I don’t think they do), so how can I legally transport a pistol? If I can’t legally conceal, does that mean it has to be visible? Or, is that worse? Does it have to be unloaded, locked in a container, and in my trunk (which sort of defeats the purpose)?


Or, like transporting 400 cases of Coors from Texarkana to Atlanta, can it simply not be done, while staying on the right side of the local constabulary?


Discuss!

Main Topic: Ammunition with Alex from Ammo.com!


The online sale of ammunition has been happening for a long time now, and there are quite a few suppliers out there. We are joined today by Alex from Ammo.com, one of those suppliers, to tell us a little bit about the industry.


  1. How did you get started with ammo.com?

  2. How saturated is the market and are there places that companies can innovate?

  3. What are some obstacles for the consumer when looking to purchase ammunition online? Some people who have always purchased in-store can be a bit hesitant to purchase ammo online; how do you convince them?

  4. How does ammo.com handle shipping? Ammunition is very heavy. Are shipping costs a challenge?

  5. Caliber selection

  6. Some people choose to buy ammunition a single box at a time, when there could be massive savings by buying it per 1000 round case (or even 500). How do you convince those potential customers that buying in bulk is better for them in the long run?

  7. How do you see the future shaping up for online ammunition sellers?

  8. What can we expect to see from ammo.com in the coming years?

Spencer:

Hey fellas,

https://www.colt.com/detail-page/night-cobra-38spl-32

https://www.kimberamerica.com/k6s-da-sa-3-1


Been a listener for a while now and I have a question. What do you guys think would be best for carry. I’m thinking of buying a revolver for my everyday carry. I think I just prefer one over autos. Just because of the reliability, history and cool factor. But the 3 guns I’m choosing are either the Ruger sp101 3” or 4”, the kimber k6s or the colt cobra.

Here are my theories for these revolvers.

The Ruger (which I’m leaning more to) because it has 357 capability,it has a hammer for longer range shots, longer barrel length options and it can be customized as well as had more aftermarket parts availavle(holsters, wood panels, sights)

The kimber because if it’s trigger hands down,357 capability and is 6shot. I know it’s coming out with a 3” but it may be hard to obtain.

Cobra because 6shot, hammer and trigger.

I will note that I now pocket carry the lcr. I just now want something a little bigger that is more potent and I can carry on my hip rather than pocket.

Let me know what you guys think.

                    Spencer

P.S. Have to add the king cobra 3” 357 now too

Doug:

A little late, I know, but here goes:

Handgun: 1900 Swiss Luger (that's almost cheating, but not quite), in

.30 Luger.  I actually own a low three digit serial Swiss 1900 Luger,

and it is a great gun-- accurate, powerful (~400 FPE) and quick to

reload.  One could make a pretty good case that in 1900, it was the best

pistol in the world.  If the FMJ bullet hits bone, the target is going

down, so I would aim for the pelvis.  My 1900 self would also experiment

with filing down the nose of the bullets a tad for make-shift

softpoints.  As a backup, a Webley Mk1 in .455 with owls-head grips.

Rifle: 1896 Swedish Mauser.  I own one of those too, and when my eyes

were younger, my 5 round groups averaged just a hair over an inch at 100

yards.

Shotgun: if money was no object, I would pick a Holland & Holland

Paradox in 12 gauge-- it's a first-rate shotgun *and* a very good

rifle.  I'd load one barrel with buck, and one with a solid, and any

enemy within ~200 yards would be in serious trouble.

Knife: Arkansas toothpick on the belt, and a Sgian-Dubh tucked into the

boot.

Clothes?  I think I'd go for the Bat Masterson look.  Including a good

stout cane, which would be very handy, especially in towns that didn't

permit firearms to be openly carried.

BTW, CCI still loads .22 WRF, and I think Winchester does a run every

few years.

Regards,

Doug

Listener Email:

Name: Q.B.

Subject: 450 SMC

Message: Over last couple of shows, I heard Weird Beard mention wanting to convert his new handgun to 450 roland. Maybe he should look into Double Tap 450 SMC ammo with no conversion needed. Also might be able to get Mike, owner of Double Tap on the show, know as the god father of 10mm.

Subject: Jo.Lo.Ar. pistol

Message: Any help in field stripping this gun?

Thanks in advance,

JoloAr

Drink Segment: Woodford Reserve bourbon

Listener Email: From Spencer “ your last discussion about pocket carry for the LCR made me realize you must not have seen the excellent ‘boot grips’ Ruger sells for them for $30 on their site. They aren’t quite as comfortable as the regular grips, but they are still Hogue's with the shock-absorbing gel strip in them, and are very comfortable.

I use these on my LCR in 9mm, which recoils about the same as the 357 setup I used to carry. You do lose a place for your pinky finger with these grips, but the gun is still very controllable and it fits in places the bulkier standard grip makes difficult.

BTW, I know that 357 sounds cooler, but 9mm in a snubby is a much more efficient way to get the same (or better) results. Take a look at Ballistics By The Inch sometime if you want to be seriously depressed about how bad 357 in snubbies sucks.

Since my regular carry gun (FNS-9 Compact) is in 9mm, and the LCR sometimes does backup duty, the compatibility made a lot of sense for me. Since it indexes off of the case mouth, you don’t need moon clips to shoot, and with nickel-plated defense ammo, you don’t really need them for ejection either, at least not for the first few cylinders.”

Listener T:

Canik TP9SF now Massachusetts legal. Thoughts and opinions? Sootch did a review and MAC put it through the gauntlet. And Noir did a first rounds video. Thank you.


Listener L on the Taurus Spectrum:

Thanks Weerd for reading my email on the last show.

Here's my little video on that Spectrum. Not a review per se. Now over 320

rounds with no FTE's and FTF's. Guys, I understand the fears on quality

control on Tauruses. That's pretty much related to guns made in Brazil,

meeting high demands of the market. I've suffered that too trying to get

accessories and parts. I had to wait 3 months once for a magazine for my

24/7 pro. That is ridiculous. All of that because the mag would come from

Brazil. The Spectrum is an all "made in america gun". I have a S&W

Bodyguard 380, a Ruger LCP II, a Kahr CW 380. The only I really don't care

much is the S&W. The grip kinda hurt the web of my hand. Love the Kahr and

the LCP II. But I noticed my follow up  shots with the Spectrum a little

more faster, because it doesn't snap. I mean, it's just a push. You might

find the trigger a little on the heavy side, but after 100 rounds it did

get better, or I just got used to it. The Trigger on the LCP II kinda

scares me. The pre 95% cocked hammer is an accident waiting to happen. The

first LCP was pretty much a half way cocked hammer version (keltec

inspired). So, no need to be afraid of the Spectrum. Mr. Enabler (Weerd)

you got me into a PM45 and is almost getting me into a LCR in 357. Please

be kind with me, because I have two reasons to make a move. I have my

birthday this month and Christmas coming in next.

Love your show guys.

This drink calls for Gin, Triple Sec,  Lillet Blanc and Lemon juice all in equal proportions,  and an absinthe wash.


But mine I made it with gin, Grand Marnier, Lillet Blanc, and Pernod.


Gran marnier is very similar to Triple Sec, and pretty darn close to Cointreau,  as well as Curacao. So if you see a cocktail with any one of those you can do a simple substitution for what you have in your cabinet.  There might be some subtle differences, but you’ll be close enough to know if you like the drink or not.


Absinthe is an Anise Liquor,  and that flavor is SO strong that really all the anise liquors and Liqureurs taste pretty much the same,  so when you don’t want to buy that expensive bottle of Absithe, you could use Penod, Ouzo, or Sambuca.


There are a few others,  that might be a bit more risky,  like Jagermeister or Campari for other Amaro style liqueurs,  but that must be done with caution, tho these drinks all have a similer bitter-sweet quality that while those substitutions might not re-create the cocktail,  it might behave similar enough to get a different, but delicious drink.

Week in Review:

Weerd: had a short range trip,    and then I found I was light on ammo so I swung by a local shop….and bought a Remington Nylon 66

Ryan: Didnt do much but cleaned up my reloading area so hoping to do more of that this winter!

Name: Justin W

Subject: Ruger LCR for Pocket Carry?

Message: Hey Guys,

Love the show! Look forward to every episode, it really rounds out the offerings of the FRN!

Quick question:

I currently carry a CZ P07 IWB and am looking into a pocket carry option for times when the CZ is impractical. I am very drawn to the Ruger LCR in .38 or .327 Fed Mag but am not sure how it would work as a strictly pocket carry gun with regards to the size. I realize a LCP or Kahr CW380 might be a leaner footprint but man I like that LCR and would love to have a DA revolver in my collection! I seem to remember that Weerd is fond of his .357 and would love to hear both of your opinions. I am 6'4 and 190# if that helps.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks

Justin

Weerd:

 

Drink Segment: Tea, because it’s morning.    But the Drink I want to talk about is the Jack Rose

2oz Applejack or Apple Brandy

1oz Lime Juice

0.5 oz Grenadine

True Applejack is what happens when you “Jack” hard apple cider.   Which is freeze distill it. This is actually quite dangerous as it concentrates the stuff you distil away like Methanol,  so most liquor made from hard cider is actually apple brandy

The Taking of Pelham 123 (THE GOOD ONE)

Thief

Hoffa

Ronin

Maltese Falcon

Heat

Week in Review:

 

Ryan: Repaired a rotten fence in my backyard…..I am exhausted and sunburnt.

 

Weer’d: Just got back from a children’s birthday party.  Mini-golf and sugar overload. Didn’t go as bad as I had expected,  everybody behaved themselves and had a good time.

Also I’m proud to say that my daughter earned a yellow belt at her Martial Arts school.   It’s a very cool school that does mostly MMA training, and the Instructor is all about practical self defense,  and he’s an NRA instructor.

 

Drink: So I’ve been thinking about this ever since I made a rhubarb crumble spiced with cardamom.   They went so well together, I’ve been thinking about my bottle of Ransom Old Tom Gin. I’ve never mixed this gin with anything before so I was a bit nervous that I might have wasted some expensive gin.

Nope, it’s AWESOME!

2oz Ransom Old Tom Gin

1oz Fresh Lime juice

0.5 oz Rhubarb Syrup


 

Main Topic: Mouse Guns Part Deux
