Reader Comments of the Week

“Speaking as an instructor, I’ll note that body position and placement of the shotgun butt will also help mitigate felt recoil. Square up to the shotgun, put the butt TIGHT against the shoulder socket just below the collarbone and LEAN FORWARD, into a shooting position. Not a drastic lean, just an aggressive stance. You might put your off foot slightly forward too for better balance.”

– JIM, in response to How to Reduce Shotgun Recoil

“Back in the late 1970’s I attended a local University with a gun range. In a Combat Shooting class we used 30+ year old Colt and S&W revolvers chambered for .38 special. If you told me each of these revolvers had a half-million rounds through them I’d believe you. They showed the exterior wear marks on the bluing and grips showed their age. None the less they were smooth as butter and were very accurate. We only shot wadcutter reloads (indoor range) but it was easy to keep a cylinder full grouped under a quarter in size. Amazing these were WWII.”

– GEE, in response to 5 Reasons You Should Carry a Revolver

“I would love to live in a world where everything is perfect, but it isn’t so. The Democrats want to do away with our weapons or limit them to where they have little effect when it comes to ones right in protecting oneself. Portland is a great example. The Republicans are just not as fast when it comes to taking away our gun rights. Yes they say they back the 2nd Amendment, yet there are things that could have been done that would give all citizens the right to carry and own firearms within reason in all 50 States. Bump stocks, suppressors, though useful in minor ways, in time we will see a return and use applied to such items, due to the nature of the beast. As long as we stay vigilant, no matter who is in the seat of power, they will need to tread lightly, for to much change would bring their biggest fear to fruition, fear of a general revolt here in these United States.”

– LAUREN, in response to 2020 Presidential Election: Gun Control Stances of Each Candidate

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.
