First post Harvey/Irma show. All of us made it through the storm OK, thankfully. Parts of Texas and Florida had a very different experience from most of Houston. Jason spent some time helping with recovery in both locations and learned some useful lessons along the way. We also got a little trigger time with Silencer Co’s Maxim 9 pistol.
This week, Jeff experienced a surprise break heard around the world! And if you don’t think we gave him enough ribbing for it during the podcast, we wish you could hear the stuff said “off air.” Here’s a fact. We may not all have a negligent discharge but, we are certainly all capable of it. Complacency will be your undoing. The minute you think you are infallible or incapable of making a mistake is usually the exact moment it happens.
Three weeks in a row? I think we’re actually impressed ourselves with this run. This week, we’ve got a “don’t be THAT guy” discussion about a loss prevention officer who turned a shop-lifting case into a murder charge. We also discuss lights, both handheld and weapon mounted. If you don’t have a handheld light as part of your every day carry setup, you’re doing it wrong.
Back in “studio” this week. Yes, we still like Sig but, at best, we’re cautiously optimistic about one of their newest releases, the MCX Virtus, a new version of the MCX which, at present, does not seem to be in anyway backward compatible with previous MCX versions. We also have had a chance to fondle two new CZ products, the P-10 and Shadow 2. While we didn’t get to shoot the P-10 until after the show, our initial impression isn’t wrong…Seems a lot like a Czech Glock 19. That and more in this weeks GOTR.
All three of the guys are back together this week. And after being out of action for a few weeks, Jason apparently lost his mind. He decided to make himself a holster for a Beretta Pico. While it’s taken a while to get around to looking at it, we’ve all finally seen the Ruger American. Let us save you some time…Pass. And Remington is also experiencing some insanity with their new “Ultimate Sheep Rifle.” Not sure we’ll ever get to test it at it’s current $5,900 MSRP.
