Reader Comments of the Week

“My first gun was a Taurus 357 magnum, 4” barrel, satin Nickel finish, checkered oak handle. Still have it some 30+ years later, accurate and smooth. I never took out a deer with it but I can tell you it goes through both Doors of a car at once like they were butter!!!!”

– BRIAN, in response to The .357 Magnum: A Useful and Exciting Cartridge

“I bought each of my four grandkids (3 sons and 1 daughter) a Henry 22. It has been a pleasure teaching them shooting and firearm safety. They love the little Henry’s and I know they will hold these as keepsakes or pass them on to future generations. I feel by far this is one of the best gifts I could have given them. I can only hope that they will be able to keep them in the future..these are worrisome times for the 2nd amendment.”

– RON, in response to Review: Henry .22 Rifle

“If one has a compressor, using a stream of air at about 50 psi to get the crud out of the hidden corners. I personally over oil after a good cleaning then blow it all out with the air nozzle. What’s left I wipe off with a clean patch, then put a few drops back on the slides. This also helps to keep the trigger area clean and lubed.”

– DEL, in response to How to Clean a Smith and Wesson M&P

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.
