Getting Screwy For Spring (Talking Corkscrews In Publix Grape Magazine Spring 2014)

If you’ve ever wanted to introduce a misbehaving corkscrew to the business end of a firearm (I think anyone who’s ever snapped a cork in half when opening a bottle can identify with this feeling), then you’re not actually too far off from one of that tool’s original uses.
