Reader Comments of the Week
“I traded a 12 gauge Coach gun for Kel-Tec KSG and I love it. It was the best decision that I could have made for use as home defense. There is nothing I would change about the KSG. Great design and engineering. Thank You KEL-TEC.”
– PAUL, in response to Bullpup Shotguns: Do They Make Sense?
“I was a professional mariner. I am an amateur hunter. I used military/marine glasses (binoculars) for pelagic fishing and for navigational use. I use them for hunting. In order to use glasses for hours at a time while scanning the horizon for sign requires high-quality glasses and a porro prism system. The porro prism glasses that I buy don’t have a focus nob. Chasing focus all day will give you a headache (literally). Military/Marine Porro Prism glasses are tuned for the individual. Once you tune (focus) for the individual, everything is crystal clear from close-in to infinity for that person. You can look at something close-in and notice an animal or sign far off with your peripheral vision because everything is crystal clear. My friends who won’t buy Military/marine grade porro prism glasses leave their glasses at camp. My glasses are around my neck and I see twice as much as they do. And, what I see, I see very well—in detail. Steiner has the best line of Porro prism military/marine glasses. Fog proof and waterproof. They have models that are waterproof to one atmosphere (33 feet deep). I recommend 7×50 or 8×50. Both of my glasses are 7×50. Don’t get a headache chasing focus. Buy high-quality glasses. Buy a cheaper gun if you need to—don’t go cheap on glasses.”
– MARK, in response to Binoc Basics: How to Choose the Right Binoculars
“Picked up the TRP 10mm for duty carry. To carry a weapon we have to qualify with it. Went to the range, cleaned all the new off it then put it to the test. Fired 650 rounds for the day. No issues at all! It’s a keeper!”
– JAMES, in response to Review: Springfield Armory 1911 TRP
