Reader Comments of the Week

“Down here in Louisiana, the 17 HMR is a squirrels’ worst nightmare up in Maine, picking off a Riffed Grouse picking gravel or sitting up in a pine is a fun challenge to get your limit of four birds a day.”

– BURT, in response to What I’ve Learned in 20 Years With the .17 HMR

“I’ve not been in a survival shelter but a bunker on a remote outpost. We used ammo cans for behind the head triceps, elevated pushups and upper body twist. We also did buddy workouts using their body weight. It’s a good time to amp up the cardio then sudden stop and focus on dry fires too. Your weapon is also a good workout tool as well.”

– MATT, in response to 5 Ways to Stay Active in a Survival Shelter

“I have always had business with cheaper than dirt and I love you! Thanks, been out touch for a while. Thank you very very much.”

– JAMES, in response to SHOT Show 2020 Recap

About the Author:

Alex Cole

Alex is a relatively young firearms enthusiast who’s been shooting consistently for around seven years. 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.
