Reader Comments of the Week

“Excellent article. Short but informative. I would add one (2) more rifles. The HK91 is an incredible battle rifle but a tad bit expensive and difficult to find, therefore my alternate choice is the PTR-91 which I believe should have been mentioned. Extremely reliable and a very close clone to the HK-91.”

– MARTIN, in response to 5 Best .308 Winchester Semi-Auto Rifles

“Great starter article – a couple of adders (50 years of FEMA and SAR experience) Emergency radio – A4M/FM/WX with alert, either alkaline or rechargeable batteries. USB or crank charging (solar isn’t too useful if sheltered). My personal choice is Midland ER210, can recharge my phone or other USB devices. Loud NWS alert/light. Beware of small AA/AAA radios that burn through a battery set in as little as 3 hours of runtime. Small cooking stove (butane, propane, fuel tabs are all options). Any backpacking stove can be used in the kitchen with care.. Fuel tabs should only be used outdoors. Take a basic first aid class.”

– LEATHERSTOCKING, in response to Disaster Preparedness: Food, Water, Electricity, and First Aid

“Single Six was my first handgun purchased in 1980 and still a favorite. Trained many new shooters due to single action and no recoil which builds confidence to move on to larger calibers. Replaced grips with Hogue rubber to accommodate my large hands. Taken countless squirrels and rabbits while snow shoeing Recommend to anyone starting out as it versatile and runs good as new 30 + years later.”

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

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.
