Reader Comments of the Week

“The Constitution does not grant the right to keep and bear arms. It acknowledges the right, and imposes ‘shall not be infringed’. That means the government may not penetrate (violate) even the outer boundary (the fringe) of such right. An individual has the right to be armed. The government may impose the harshest of sanctions, against anyone ‘mis-using’ arms, even allow violators to be shot-on-sight, by citizens. The right of possession remains. You may have be armed, EXCEPT . . . The qualifying term ‘except’ , is infringement.”

– SASHA, in response to SCOTUS Hears Second Amendment Case — What You Need to Know

“I have a farm and about 500 knives to choose from. Spyderco, Kershaw, and Emerson knives are most frequently carried. I’ve leant to the Emerson CQC series for EDC and after carrying a Spyderco Endela, I’m back to a drop point CQC 7-1. 154 CM holds a good edge and is sturdy with no chipping. I had a Sebenza. Great knife,but as a practical matter, the Emersons are more than adequate for daily use and abuse.”

– HUGH, in response to Ontario RAT I vs. CRK Sebenza: How Much Knife Do You Really Need?

“I prefer metal ammo cans, much tougher and will last. I always inspect the gasket on the lid before buying them. If the gasket is cracked, aged or missing then they are useless. I also put desiccants in them too. I save desiccants from all types of product packaging and toss them in the cans.”

– BRIAN, in response to Ammo Storage and Organization 101

About the Author:

Alex Cole

Alex is a relatively young firearms enthusiast who’s been shooting consistently for around seven years. Though he is fairly new to the industry, 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.

Alex tries to visit the range at least a couple of times a month to maintain and improve his shooting skills. He also enjoys disassembling and reassembling firearms to see how they work and to keep them properly cleaned and maintained. He installs most of the upgrades to his firearms himself, taking it as a chance to learn.

Additionally, he is very into buying, selling and trading guns to test different firearms and learn more about them. He is not only interested in modern handguns and rifles, he appreciates the classics for both historical value and real-world use.
