Reader Comments of the Week
“The author is dead on. Use what you have proven through your range experiences. I’ll stick with #00 buckshot & “special loads”. I keep a variety on a side saddled 870 wing master. On my “FrankenGun”, (Yes Dr., a High Standard with other makers components, I ONLY have #00 buck. For giggles, I’ll get #4 & try it on the range”
– OLDGMG, in response to Buckshot, Explained
“I love my M&P 22 Compact. I have never had a failure to feed or failure to eject with a large variety of ammo. I only shoot copper-plated 40 gr ammo. I do have one major problem with the M&P 22 Compact—-I don’t want to stop shooting it at the range. It is a fun to shoot plinker. I can’t even say there is any felt recoil. It’s easy to break down and re-assemble. Racking the slide is easy. My EDC is a Kimber Micro 9, which is also a great little gun, but you can’t beat the fun of shooting a .22.”
– DENNIS, in response to Review: Smith & Wesson M&P22 Compact
“I’ve owned the Ruger PRR in .22 WMR for about 9 months now. It’s a very fun gun to shoot and is surprisingly accurate. So pleased am I with its accuracy I’ll likely be looking for one in .308 Win.”
– SCOTT, in response to Are Ruger Precision Rifles Worth It?
