The Cabot “Big Bang” 1911 Set

These were absolutely AMAZING guns. Cabot makes some REALLY impressive 1911s, but these were LITERALLY Out of This World.

Breathtaking guns.

Cabot Metorite 1

So the meteor the guns were made from was mostly made of Nickle and Iron, making it a natural sort of Stainless steel. It’s softer than conventional steel, so Cabot welded conventional steel rails to the gun, and this is one of their test scraps

Test Rail

While the steel is softer than what Cabot makes their other guns from, these are actually shoot-able guns, and should live a moderately long service life….still where they shine (LITERALLY shine) is their looks!

Home Again

Got back from Louisville at 2:00 am (!!) It was such a great show. Sebastian says it was the 2nd Most attended convention after the last show I went to in Houston, it was a REALLY good convention center for it, it was crowded, but the center handled it well.

Still 80,500 coming to one part of the country under their own dime is a LOT of people, and it really doesn’t reflect the common argument that most gun owners aren’t happy with the NRA representation, and we want more gun control.

To tide you over while I recover from the long days and lack of sleep, Ryan and I sat down in our room every evening and recorded a short recap that will be cut to a podcast.

I am as tired as I look!

Time for a shower and a nap!

Hope to see all of you who are here!

Gunblog Variety Cast Ep 89: Obama’s Purple Disaster Conversation

So this week’s Gunblog Variety Cast is up.

Adam and Sean bring you Episode 89 of The GunBlog VarietyCast – Obama’s Purple Disaster Conversation

Erin Palette asks, “What’s your disaster personality?”

President Obama goes to Britain and tells them how to run their country. Nicki Kenyon tells us how that works out for him.

In the Pacifiers & Peacemakers segment, Beth Alcazar gives us a report on the Well Armed Woman Mid-South Purple Pow Wow

The same way he showed us that a battery wasn’t just a battery, Silicon Graybeard shows us that a shop light isn’t just a shop light.

And proving the principle that it takes an order of magnitude more effort to debunk BS than it does to generate it, Weer’d finally finishes with Loaded Conversations Episode 1.

Interesting Bartending Videos

So I subscribe to this Japanese Cocktail channel. It’s 100% Japanese with no English subtitles or even instructions. In stead you get to watch the TECHNIQUE of these bartenders in the Japanese style. They are VERY methodical, which gives it the feel of Flare Bartending, but vastly more practical. Also I’m fairly entrenched in the Cobbler Shaker (the 3-peice shaker with the integrated strainer) while most of the Western bars use a Boston Shaker (the two cups that are press fit together).

Have a look:

AMAZING technique! Not sure if his jiggers are graduated with half-marks or if he’s free-pouring the partial measures. I just prefer to use my graduated jigger, or break out the whole set of double jiggers.

Also he’s granulated sugar, not syrup, so he first dry stirs the cocktail THEN adds the ice and shakes.

Also I REALLY like that technique of dabbing the bar spoon on the back of the hand to sample the drink. Really brilliant, and it looks WAYYY classier than the western technique of dropping sip stick into the drink and capping it with a finger.

Look at that shake, that’s the Japanese hard shake which supposedly chills the drink as well as a Boston Shaker. I personally use a bigger shaker than this to allow for more travel of the cocktail with the shake.

But I have my complaints with this drink. WAYYYY too much sugar for my tastes. Also totally wrong glass for this drink. A cocktail coupe is OK for a classic cocktail (I personally am partial to the classic Cocktail/ Martini glass) but he’s only filling that little coupe half way. He needs to scale up the drink or get smaller glasses. You don’t need to pour to the rim, but in a cocktail glass it shouldn’t be only half full.

Now just one smacked out of the park!

GORGEOUS clear ice!

Good ingredients, and great technique that shows he knows EXACTLY what he’s doing.

Good stir then he fills that rocks glass right up, and notice how that clear mega-cube just vanishes in the glass!

And the twist just shows he’s not playing around.

Gunblog Variety Cast Episode 88: Group Show!

So Sean was moving to his new house this week, so instead of a regular show, We bring you a special group show!
Sean tells you about another Sean Sorrentino. One who is a very naughty Sean Sorrentino. This Sean Sorrentino will not be podcasting where he is going.

Adam relates the horrifying story of the legal system run amok. Or is it? A teen is arrested on Felony Robbery charges for stealing a cup of soda from McDonalds!

Erin Palette holds an Ask Me Anything. About preps, you dirty minded people.

In our main topic, we endure the nails-on-a-chalkboard sound of Hillary and her daughter Chelsea confirming that a President Hillary Clinton will, in fact, be coming for your guns.

Special Guest Luke Apps, of The Triangle Tactical Podcast, thinks you should start a blog or a podcast. He’s a great person to tell you about it because he’s the person who encouraged me to start this podcast.

And finally, Weer’d plays a few clips from the latest episode of no one’s favorite anti-gun podcast, Loaded Conversations. To say that this woman has “issues” is to grossly understate it. You’ve got to hear it to believe it.

Thank you for downloading, listening, and subscribing. You are subscribed, right? We are available on iTunes, Stitcher Radio, and now on Google Play Music!

Thanks also to Firearms Policy Coalition for their support. GotoStopNewsome.net to help FPC crush Governor Newsome’s ammo ban.
