Reader Comments of the Week
“In Italy 1787 the founding fathers met In Philadelphia and through compromise and debate produced The Constitution. Thomas Jefferson was unable to attend the convention but his philosophy and writings weigh heavily arguing “… the words in the Constitution are “fixed” and there can be no deviation from its “strict” interpretation. 230+ years later Jefferson’s argument rings out loud as some members of Congress disagree. Those congressional members argue that the words in the Constitution are only “implied” or a “guideline” that may be changed to meet current challenges. Will we pick apart this sacrosanct document in the name of progress—I hope not. The right to bear arms is a right for all law abiding individuals and while the Constitution is not perfect it has perfectly with stood the test of time. Leave it alone.”
– PATRICK, in response to BREAKING: House Passes Background Check Bills for Firearms
“Great article Mr. Campbell. I cannot think of any point you made that I disagree with. As a retired cop and firearms instructor that doesn’t happen often.”
– SCOTT, in response to Drills for Unexpected Moments
“I own a year 1988 Colt Delta Elite & run Hornady 155gr hp through it. It is my nightstand self defense firearm. It is hands down my go to when SHTF. If you have never shot a pistol chambered in 10mm , I strongly urge you to. You will be surprised of the awesome power , but also easily controlled it is , even in a GLOCK 20 or 29 as well.”
– BRIAN, in response to 10mm Auto: Good Self-Defense Round?
“I feel very fortunate to have acquired one of these during a year of turmoil. This along with a few other choice pistols are very nice. Have not yet had a chance to fire; but the ergonomics are spot on. This is the sort of piece that feels just right the first time you pick it up. I have not doubt it will do the job.”
– EDDIE, in response to Review: SAR 9
