Reader Comments of the Week

“I loved seeing this article! Brings to light so many of the really cool weapons you may not have been paying attention to while being enthralled by the show. I thought the Tokarev TT-33 was an awesome addition to the arsenal. Although, I am partial to the Remington 12 gauge…that’s one of the pieces I use at home!”

– CHRISTIAN ALEXANDER, in response to Ranking the Guns of Stranger Things – Season 3

“Such a fine, fine weapon. I don’t have one. I have too many guns at the moment. I would prefer the .45 cal. I have always wondered what is with the different hammers? Some being a loop and some being a thumb tab. Wikipedia does not specifically differentiate.”

– JOHN BOOTH, in response to Three 1911s Every Gun Enthusiast Needs to Own

“Great piece. I was around the kids’ age in 1985. This is a great show for me. New Coke… I remember having that very argument. Anywho… I did notice that it seemed like the kids all knew how to use guns. Now, that is 1985 for sure! Teach ’em young, and teach ’em well!! Cheers!”

– CLIFFALLING, in response to Ranking the Guns of Stranger Things – Season 3
