Reader Comments of the Week

“You forgot to add the Beretta ARX100 which has the gas piston, folding stock and is very ambidextrous and has been out for years. It’s big brother, the ARX160, has been a staple of the Italian Army.”

– JTROSSE, in response to 10 Best AR-15 Alternatives (5.56 NATO Semi-Auto Rifles)

“I’ve had the same problem; I have two compounds, both of which have been collecting dust since I received my first recurve. I can’t get enough of the “stick and string” because it’s simply so amazing.”

– CHRIS, in response to Traditional or Compound — Which Bow is Right for You?

“’There is no more proven pistol than the Beretta 92”. Ahh, 1911? If someone would ask: What is the most proven pistol ever? My guess is the “poll numbers” would put the 1911 not only at the top, but at a huge margin to the #2 spot. Not saying the Beretta 92 isn’t in the running, just believe the answer to the most proven pistol question, would be hands down, the 1911.”

– ROCK IT, in response to Review: Beretta 92X — A Step Forward

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.
