Reader Comments of the Week
“All of the mentioned handguns are superb. For me, however, the S/W Shield 45acp is a standout. This gun conceals well, shoots accurately with minimal recoil, and is reliable! The purchase price is not bad, either. I have loaded this pistol with every type of bullet: hp’s, 185 to 230 gr’s, reloads that fly at a blistering pace, and it always fires on command. Plus, it feels good in the hand. Check one out and I believe you, too, will be impressed.”
– ARIZONA BEN, in response to Best .45 Pistols for Concealed Carry
“My 226 in 9mm is by far the favorite in my collection. My 239 (convertible .357/.40) is a close second. Picked up my 226 in 1989 and have fired thousands of rounds through it with zero issues. I love handing it to someone (unloaded of course) and ask them to point it at something and then look down the sights – they are amazed at how on target they are.”
– DAVID, in response to Review: SIG P226 Stainless
“Jack O’Connor was a proponent of this method over 70 years ago. Worked then, works today.”
