Reader Comments of the Week

“I have owned and carried a PF9 for about 3 years and love it. It is a solid and reliable gun for concealed carry.
It was recommended to me by a gun dealer who could have suggested many choices that were much more expensive.
I appreciated his honesty and have sent him several customers since then.”

– BRUCE, in response to Review: Kel-Tec PF9

“Bullseye powder is mentioned for several loads.
This is one of the fastest burning smokeless powders out there, and a little goes a long way.
Beginning reloaders are probably better off avoiding this one unless you’re extremely methodical and very OC about the process.
A small error in measurement or a double-throw could be catastrophic!
That said, I really like Bullseye myself for loading short-barrel (3″ and under) pistol loads for 380 and 9mm (not exactly Cowboy shooting!), due to the very fast burn rate and reduced muzzle flash/blast.
Otherwise, I load a lot of Unique.”

– GWHIZ in response to Handloading Cowboy Handgun Calibers

  1. Sirs,

    I believe that the Walther PP featured in the near suicide scene in S2 E3 or 4. Because of its historical significance I would have thought it may have been included.

    Keep up the good work,

    Mark Greenstreet
