Reader Comments of the Week

“Next to marrying my wife of 47 years, enlisting in the Marine Corps in 1954 at age 17 was the smartest thing I ever did. Each of these decisions has paid me dividends for my entire life thereafter.”

– RALPH, in response to 5 Inspiring Quotes from Marine Corps Legends

“I have owned a Tisas zig M 1911 for several years and put, maybe, 5 hundred rounds through it. I haven’t experienced a malfunction with this pistol. An inexpensive gun, less than $400, but well worth the money.”

– BOB, in response to Review: Tisas 1911 Handguns

“My go-to is the 8-shot Mossberg 500 combat shotgun with ghost ring sites, heat shield and composite stock. Shoots like a dream and patterns very nicely…..I’m going to give the “shorties” a try – especially the slug version, and see how they function. Looks like a winner as a home protection load.”

– ROGER, in response to A Closer Look at Federal’s New Short Shells
