Reader Comments of the Week

“Great article & comments. For me, Glock 21, Springfield 1911-A1 & G43. Again, depending on weather and garments. Bottom line, and many said this, it’s what works best for you personally. Whatever you hit your target with, that’s what you should carry. There is no substitute for accuracy.”

– ED, in response to The 10 Best Concealed Carry Handguns of the Past 20 Years

“Good article. I just thought that I’d mention another great use of the FF 3, similar to the “ancillary or backup sight on a scoped rifle”. I have several FF 3’s mounted on handgun scopes – co-zeroed at 50 yards. Handgun scopes are sometime, in a hunting situation, difficult to acquire quickly. A co-zeroed FF 3 is very quick to get on close-to zero, at which time you can drop your eye to your magnified scope. If you need to take the shot quickly, you can use the FF 3 for the shot.”

– CHARLES ROGERS, in response to Review: Burris FastFire3 Red Dot Sight

“Have three Rugers love them and have had many others with great respect for them. I want to find an 9mm p95dc or one of those for fun. I did have one Bad Ruger a p series 45acp, supper inaccurate?, there must have been something wrong with it.! Past 5 yards I couldn’t hit the broad side of the barn. That was a freak of a gun and I don’t judge Ruger for that gun something was worn out. Otherwise I think they make a great product.( I have a security 6 and love it also)”

– WILLIAM, in response to The 5 Best Ruger Pistols for Concealed Carry
