Reader Comments of the Week

“Got the EAA .45 many years ago. One feature I never took advantage of was that the “upper” on the .45 Frame could be swapped out for other calibers and/or barrel configurations. Don’t know if EAA still offers that option, but upgrading to a “target upper” would be a nice option for folks who already have an EAA .45 Frame.”

– GRUMPY, in response to EAA Witness Elite Match .45

“This is one of the best gun articles I’ve ever read. I am the same way. I believe the same way as well. It’s like people who go out and spend thousands of dollars on golf clubs and yet their game never improves. I have an appreciation for every firearm.”

– DAMON, in response to SCCY CPX-2RD — Best Value Under $400

“I absolutely love the p250. I own 4. Purchased most of them when the p320 came out and everyone dumped them for the new hotness. The 22 and 9 mm are my favorites. The 45 sub compact is a pocket rocket, 2 mags and call it a day. Everyone has been extremely accurate. I use the 9mm compact for a house gun also because my wife loves it. Some don’t care for the long trigger, that’s fine. Just more guns available for us who appreciate this great gun”

– MCINTOSH, in response to Review: SIG P250 Compact 9mm

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.
