Reader Comments From Previous Weeks

Why You Need a Packable AR-15 Pistol for Your Vehicle Ever wonder why the anti gun nuts go ballistic? Take a good look at what these death ray guns look like. Before any kooks in here go off half cocked, I own 4 hand guns and an 84 year old Winchester Model 12 12 ga. The wife and and I are both CCW permitted. The looks of the weapons shown here tell the story for the anti nuts better than anything else. If it looks like a military weapon it gets labeled assault and you can talk til you are blue in the face and you ain’t going to change their mind.


Video: Court Rules in Favor of Good Samaritan Stopping Attack on Deputy Great point G-Man. I was not aware myself that there was neither a judge nor a court ruling involved in this instance. Thank u for pointing that out and reminding other gun owners that if we intend to remain truly informed we must seek the truth about any incident involving firearms OURSELVES.


Shotgun Sights — As Important as Rifle Sights, Far Less Understood When I introduced novice correctional officers to the Mossberg 500 I had them think of the flat surface of the receiver as a bowling alley and the front bead as a bowling ball. Place the ball in the exact center of the alley and line both up with the K5 of the target. [W3] ~Woody W Woodward

Range Report: The Gallery Gun Reimagined: Henry’s Pump Octagon I have the .22 LR/L/S model. I find it a little muzzle heavy…but no big deal. I had a gunsmith install a Weaver peep sight, and replace the bead front sight with a blade. It makes the rifle even more handsome. The sight picture is much better, and I can get tighter groups out of the attractive, fun-to-shoot rifle.


Why You Need a Packable AR-15 Pistol for Your Vehicle Being a older guy that carried a M2 Carbine in Korea and Vietnam, I picked up one of Inland’s M1 Carbine Pistols, and put it in a cut down stock. Love it for my PDW. I have a light/laser combination on it also. I do carry a copy of my purchase receipt saying it is a Pistol, and my Tennessee Carry Permit at all times. ~Bruce

NRA: New York Wants Handguns to be Rationed in Virginia Anyone who would deny Constitutional Rights to an American citizen has forfeited any claim to any Constitutional Rights of their own.

Review: Walther PPS M2 9mm Pistol I agree, I love the paddle release! I have these in PPQ and PPS MI still love my P-99 with a paddle release! I would love to have a P 88! ~Troy

Video: Court Rules in Favor of Good Samaritan Stopping Attack on Deputy Whether he had a concealed carry permit or not should not even enter the argument for you can carry a gun in the glove compartment without a concealed carry permit and if you see you can save a life you can use the gun to do so.You just cannot carry the weapon concealed on you body. This case should be a no brainer but the left has been bleeding our bill of rights to death for decades. I live in Lee county and we have a great Constitutional loving sheriff and deputies and i would have their backs any time they needed it or asked for it.

~James Stamulis

Gun Review: Henry .22 Magnum Small Game Carbine Nice rifle, perfect length for it’s purpose. However, Henry should make an all weather stainless version of this, with a fiber-optic front sight! The price they’re asking would fit the version I’m talking about more appropriately ~Hobbs9

Why You Need a Packable AR-15 Pistol for Your Vehicle Right-on, jim. You’re talking some sense. You didn’t say what bullet weight you were firing out of your RIA, but if you were to score a hit at 200, I am confident that it would take the fight right out of ’em.

Once we figured out how to do it, we were scoring hits on military resettable knock-down targets at 300 yards with 4″ barrel M686 with military .38 SPL. We didn’t score hits every single time, but as the day went on the hits came often enough to make a bad guy think twice.
