Reader Comments of the Week

“Thank you for writing such a fine article. For those of us who live outside the USA… in a socialist land called California… practice time is extremely limited. From Los Angeles, the closest ranges are at least 3 hours roundtrip.”

– MR. KOOLIO2, in response to The Shotgun for Home Defense

“AR, of course, with a 1911 hanging on my hip.”

– LONNIE, in response to Why the AR-15 Is My Go-To Rifle for Survival Situations

“I love mine. It’s a 29-3 nickel-plated 6″ bbl. And unlike the author, I love to shoot mine. I love that power. It always draws a crowd at the range.”

– RANDY, in response to Dirty Harry’s Hogleg — S&W Model 29 .44 Magnum

About the Author:

Alex Cole

Alex is a younger firearms enthusiast who’s been shooting since he was a kid. He loves consuming all information related to guns and is constantly trying to enhance his knowledge, understanding, and use of firearms. Not a day goes by where he doesn’t do something firearms-related and he tries to visit the range at least a couple of times a month to maintain and improve his shooting skills.

His primary focus is on handguns, but he loves all types of firearms. He enjoys disassembling and reassembling firearms to see how they work and installs most of the upgrades to his firearms himself, taking it as a chance to learn. He’s not only interested in modern handguns and rifles, he appreciates the classics for both historical value and real-world use.
