Reader Comments of the Week
“I love wheel guns, they are sturdy and functional. I had an old retired sherif deputy tell me that, “one thing about a wheel gun is that it will never lie to ya”. He had an old S&W 357, it is a beautiful firearm.”

“I’ve used a red dot on my hunting rifles for several years now. Mainly because modern bolt action rifles no longer come equipped with iron sights and my shooting range rarely exceeds 75 yards. The one key feature i look for is different dot colors. In the fall with nature changing to all shades of browns, reds, and oranges a green dot is easier to pick up. Likewise in the spring with all shades of greens a red dot contrasts so much better. fwiw”

“Next to my Savage 99, my Hi power was the gun I most regretted selling and to this day I cannot believe I was so stupid to sell either of them. After selling it I ended up with a Beretta 92A1 as my go to 9mm sidearm but it is just not the same, as much as I like it, the Hi Power just fit me so much better. Everything about it fit me “just right” I carried it for about 10 years and really want another one and as soon as I can find one of these for sale I’m buying one! Two comments on it, I want adjustable sights!! I hate having to drift the sights for windage, and got to do something with the hammer, I just don’t remember it being so butt ugly.”
