henever someone reviews very expensive firearms, there’s usually a Lamborghini lurking in the text. As in, a Lamborghini and sub-compact will both get you to work in the morning, but some people want to drive the best and can afford to, while many do fine with that used Toyota Yaris. Frankly, the Lambo comparison is apology, a plea to the reader not to hate the writer because the writer is reviewing a firearm the reader most likely can’t afford. And plenty of readers get upset when they finish a review only to discover the gun in question costs more payments on their house than they’d care to admit. So, upfront: the Korth Mongoose, available from Nighthawk Custom, is one fine revolver, retailing for a damned hefty $3,499. It holds six rounds of the powerful .357 Magnum, sports a three-inch barrel, and is a fine choice for concealed carry. But is it worth that large chunk of change? Not my call. I barely can figure my own finances beyond, “I could use more money,” so I have no place judging what another person’s idea of worth might be given his or her income, assets, and preferences about firearms.
