Reader Comments of the Week
“MIL-SPEC AR triggers are all easily polished and greatly improved! Every bit as fine as a much higher dollar trigger, just takes a little effort to polish, no big deal at all and great improvements to silky smooth.”
– DOWNTOEARTHTHINKING, in response to Comparing AR-15 Trigger Options
“I keep a Maglite 4-cell in my SUV. I wear a Tac Light on my belt and keep either a Nebo or Cree mini in my pocket. Check the batteries in the Maglite! I’ve ruined a few of those when old batteries leaked and became lodged in the tube. The smaller lights of my EDC are used often enough to notice when the batteries are fading.”
