Reader Comments of the Week

“I own a Judge Magnum. Actually, I’ve owned a few of them. I carry this in my purse or in a belly band. I love this gun because it’s going to do the job. I need to use it in self-defense and I love the way it shoots. There is very minimal recoil and it’s accurate. Just an amazing, awesome gun!”

– KAT SMITH, in response to The Versatile Taurus Judge

“Great review of the Glock 42. I purchased my 42 a while back when the 43’s were scarce as hen’s teeth. Really wanted the 9mm 43 but decided to go with the 42 in 380. After receiving the little gun I found it to be a great shooter. While there are a lot of 380’s out there to choose from I do believe the Glock 42 is a great investment.”

– DOUG, in response to G42 Review: Glock’s Small Yet Reliable Pistol

“Great description. I’d love to see a diagram of this process, too. One of my old roommates years ago had something similar to this in our house.”

– WANDA, in response to How to Make Your Own Distilled Water

“I was blessed to inherit a 1964 Weatherby Mark V in 7mm mag. I started hunting with it in 1976 and still do every deer season.”

– JAMES, in response to Review: 7mm Remington Magnum

  1. Yeah, how about a range day option for us that shoot a lot but don’t want to get involved with the Instagram Twitter BS?
