Reader Comments of the Week

“My daughter’s husband bought one of the Tisas in .45 ACP, shortly after I bought a Kimber Ultra Carry II in .45 ACP. I’m surprised to find that out of the box, the Tisa had a much better trigger pull at about 1/3 the [price of a] Kimber. Who would have thunk it.”

– RANDY, in response to The 6 Best Handguns From Turkey

“I’ve found a label maker invaluable. Not only to label the calibers for quick identification, but I also use it to date the ammo. I leave the ammo in the boxes they came in when I store them in the ammo cans, and I date the boxes when I purchased them. When I go to the range, I generally take the oldest-purchased boxes to cycle out the oldest supply.”

– JEFF, in response to Ammo Storage and Organization 101

“Enjoyed the article. I own a SA TRP and Vickers Tactical but not an Emissary. Gun shows its CNC design but always nice for me to see steel handguns. My local dealership is well stocked in polymer framed auto loaders not so much in all steel ones. An artifact of the times.”

– DOWNSOUTH, in response to Springfield Emissary: A Serious Upgrade to the 1911 Platform

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.
