Reader Comments of the Week

“Love my Single Six. Used a Mark II for small bore target shooting, (Yes – even won a trophy), but the Single Six was my version of a “KIT” gun. Being able to swap .22LR and .22 WMR cylinders was why it was such an ideal “KIT” gun. Modern .22 LR and .22 WMR ammo makes it even a better choice.”

– GRUMPY, in response to Ruger Single Six .22 LR — A Cowboy Gun Classic

“Can’t find fault with any of these choices. The only thing I would mention is the need to practice with the type of round you carry for home/self defense. Yes it’s okay to practice with .38spl and then carry .357, but you should also practice with some .357 as well.”

– CHRIS, in response to Best Revolvers for Personal Defense — My Choices!

“A spare bolt carrier group and charging handle is smart ,or the parts to fix bolt a broken extractor hunting is a trip ender without parts. My fishing tackle box has as many gun parts as parts to repair reals and lives under seat next to tool box.”

– CHARLES, in response to 10 Things You Should Buy Right Now

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.
