Reader Comments of the Week

“Definitely looks like a fun-gun. I think I would prefer the adjustable sights of the revolver over the buck-horn of the carbine. As for the cylinder gap burn, reminds me of the M1-thumb issue. WHEN it happens, don’t think of it as an injury, but rather an education, for you have just LEARNED to NEVER do it again. That is actually in the M1 manual. LOL. A single action is a great tool for those learning, as the focus is on safety, and accuracy, instead of mag-dumps.”

– ROCK IT, in response to Heritage Rough Rider Rancher .22 Carbine

“Bought my first suppressor recently my dealer told me to wait and e- file. Makes sense to eliminate duplicate paper applications. Also once your personal identifying information (fingerprints/pictures) are on file subsequent approvals should be even faster. But President Reagan once said the scariest words are ‘I’m the government and I’m here to help.'”

– DAN, in response to Buying Short-Barreled Rifles and Shotguns, Suppressors Just got Easier Thanks to the ATF!

“Love the little Olight 2 EOS. While most of my WMLs are stream light and I also own a protac for edc, that little keychain light has been awesome for over a year. Far more useful than a cell phone light and it’s certainly handy and since it’s on my keys, it’s certainly always on me. For the price of less than $20, I’ve given out about a dozen last year for the holiday and another 3 are gifts for my coworkers this year. Everyone seems to like them and use them.”

– JOSH, in response to 10 Under $50: Top 5 EDC Knives and Flashlights

Though he is fairly new to the industry, he loves consuming all information related to guns and is constantly trying to enhance his knowledge, understanding and use of firearms. Not a day goes by where he doesn’t do something firearms-related.

Alex tries to visit the range at least a couple of times a month to maintain and improve his shooting skills. He also enjoys disassembling and reassembling firearms to see how they work and to keep them properly cleaned and maintained. He installs most of the upgrades to his firearms himself, taking it as a chance to learn.

Additionally, he is very into buying, selling and trading guns to test different firearms and learn more about them. He is not only interested in modern handguns and rifles, he appreciates the classics for both historical value and real-world use.
