Reader Comments of the Week
“The lever is a great starting rifle for the newcomer. Like the scope, which actually looks out of place on a lever, no lever is really complete without a complimenting single-action revolver. One has to wonder how long before Henry hooks-up with say Heritage to make a package deal? Another lever that would make an interesting review is the Browning BL-22. Why? Because it has a unique lever system in which the lever only swings about 30 degrees instead of the usual 90 degrees, and the trigger goes with the lever, so it only takes a flip of the fingers to operate, leaving a firm grip on the stock. On top of that, the BL-22 has absolutely hair-splitting accuracy, even after an estimated 1/4 million rounds through it.”

“My Pietro Beretta 92F was one of the first handguns I ever bought around 25 years ago. Gunsmith client of mine recommended it and boy am I glad he did. It is hard to beat in terms of feel, accuracy and reliability. I recently picked up a 2nd one that is identical, plus had the opportunity to get the “little brother” 84BB in .380. It is the same gun, just shrunk down a bit. Love them all – shoot them all! All made in Italy. Never had a problem with any of them. One of the most reliable handguns ever made! If there was only one gun I could have, it would be my Beretta 92F. Like some of the others who commented, I recently picked up a Beretta CX4 Storm in 9mm, so all the magazines are interchangeable – great SHTF bundle – a 92F on each hip plus the CX4 Storm carbine.”

“I agree with Bret regarding when it comes to a time where you have to defend yourself in a life or dead situation and what you’ve learned gets put on the back burner. To think about different situations that might arise where you would have to defend yourself and play them out in your head might be alright for the moment but as we all know nothing happen exacting like we thought. Which brings me to say this, having range time under your belt will help save your life. Being able to get to your weapon and draw it quickly, knowing not to make yourself a target, move and find cover and most of all getting shots on target. All these things can be practiced in real-time at the range and more then likely will help save your life. Oh, never lose sight of your threat. If you don’t have the basic tools of how to handle, shoot, sight in, grip, and control your weapon it is useless. That said your range time is of the utmost of importance.”
