We recorded this episode with our portable studio and had to mic the entire room with a single unit we had never used before. This contributes to make this the noisiest episode we have ever recorded. Our featured firearm for this episode is the Taurus PT1911. Our quote for this episode is “There’s no such thing as a good gun. There’s no such thing as a bad gun. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a very dangerous thing. A gun in the hands of a good person is no danger to anyone except the bad guys.” –Charlton Heston
So in this episode we talk about Coyote Hunting along with a touch of bobcat hunting on the side. Then we talk about some handguns chambered in .45 ACP. After that we kinda walk our way into talking about reloading.

- Kimber Ultra CDP II
- Rock Island Armory Compact Tactical
