Reader Comments From Previous Weeks
The retired Supreme Court Justice, career Anti- gun Feinstein can’t seem to be able to learn! The ban on certain firearms sometime ago provided that after 10 years had ZERO Impact on Murders, maybe she conveniently can’t recall. However the Justice along with any elected officials who want to ban, restrict, change age limits of FIREARM ownership, and change period to Second Amendment should be required to live (NOT in their gated communities with security protecting them from harm) but in the same neighborhoods as the Citizens impacted by their violation of FREEDOM and Right’s elected official’s voted on are right next door. So anyone who’s elected to office don t get to tell others how to live, take Firearm Rights away, or place restrictions and go live behind the gated community! If one chooses to serve in the Government will live in regular neighborhoods while in office as well out of OFFICE! Those that choose to violate these terms DO NOT receive 1 penny of their Pension ever! I bet they won’t be so ignorant and willing to create laws that could sacrifice their families safety, like they freely do with our Families, because they were so use to saying screw you measly voters as they are driven to the nice Security patrolled gated communities. We vote so those who want to infringe on voters RIGHTS, can do so as long their families are right their with us! This will eliminate the inaccurate, deceptive facts to pass a law that prior to the new mandatory living requirements of elected officials would have never thought twice about the families their decisions impacted before. Same for wanting open borders, they never cared because they made sure they lived far from the results, BUT now their rights to protect themselves and families from harm are like sitting ducks just like they placed so many people and families lives in harm’s way with no way to protect them didn’t matter! Bet you they wouldn’t act so ignorant in playing with laws!
Since when have facts and truth been important to Dianne Feinstein?
I have the .44 Mag version that I sent to Robar to have plated in NP3. The Robar treatment greatly improved the already outstanding double-action trigger pull. I could see this offered in DA only. With Bear loads the Alaskan stings a bit. I imagine that the .454 is even hotter. I’d like to get the .454 Tolkat Ruger makes. That pistol has a lot of promise.
Love mine, have had one since they first came out years ago, although I did have some double tap 400 grain crimp jump one time on me and I will never use that ammo again, now its Underwood Ammo and Hornady for concealed carry. Will probably hand this one down to my son, thank you for the review, best one yet

Cross-draw and shoulder holsters are dangerous. You must be very careful with the draw as the barrel will be pointed behind you and will be swung around, pointing to your side as you draw. That is why I will not wear one. I prefer a holster that I can secure to my right leg ( I am right handed) when I get in my car remove when I exit. If, for some reason that would not work for you, I would secure a holster somewhere to the interior of my car. I prefer the leg holster because it is simple to move from one vehicle to another.
There are many holsters that attach to the steering column.
This is the best place to keep a gun while driving.
It’s accessible , yet out of the sight of people in other cars.
Either you’re “old as dirt”, have “fat finger syndrome”, or your spell check was out to lunch when you did your typing…”Again, if you follow my reviews you know I really don’t get into what brand of ammo does the best group at 200 years in August on a 100+ degree day in Ohio”.
How do you group at 200 years?? Slow ammo or time travel machine??
I couldn’t agree more with all the comments about the Galil pistol specifically and IWI products in general. I recommend swapping the fore end handguard with one produced by Midwest Industries (2 different lengths for the pistol or rifle versions). They aren’t cheap but if you can afford the pistol or rifle then why not? Well worth it. IWI folding stocks are tight! What I did was disassemble the joint and heat-treat the spring to reduce the tension. My ‘high tech’ approach was to hold the spring compressed between plier jaws to half its original size. Heat was supplied via a cigarette lighter and then dunked in coffee. Take your time and don’t over heat the spring. It may take a few tries but it works. The stock now works easily and smoothly.
Well, I am a little conflicted with this issue. I am a grandfather with teen grandchildren between 18 and 21. And I can tell you that these are not the teens most if us grew up with. They live in social media with their faces pressed in their phones and go to full on hate with just a few tweets. I won’t even trust my 21 year old grandson with a B.B. gun, because he said he wanted something powerful enough to kill something, like a bird. Kill, not hunt for food. This was the world of our Florida School shooter. I live in Florida where our state legislature has already passed the 21 year old gun law. No politician dared stand against it after what happened here. A lot of failures happened across the board. But if that 19 year old did not own that legally purchased, high capacity similar-auto rifle, things may have been different. Notice that I did not say Assault Rifle. I support protecting everyone’s 2nd amendment rights, but sometimes exceptions have to be made. I would suggest bolt action hunting rifles and low capacity shotguns for 18 to 20 year olds. Also simi-auto rifles in 22 caliber with fixed capacity’s of 18 rounds or less. A lot of tube feed 22 rifles fall in that category. Our Florida school shooting would not have even news worthy if the gunman had been armed with this type of rifle. I do not say this with out having done alot of though on this matter. But if something does not change these school mass shooting will continue and state legislatures will follow Florida’s example one after another. And as for voting age. The vote is a much more damaging weapon than a gun. If you look at what is happening in our colleges with these 18 to 20 year olds, we should all move to change the voting age to 21. One exception, honorable military service should over ride both gun ownership and voting age issues.
I have a MS in human psychosocial development and spent many years working with traumatized children and teens, both as a child interventionist and as a juvenile probation officer. I worked with kids who’d witnessed their parents being murdered, who had grown up in very abusive homes, and most disturbingly, two little girls who were pimped out by their drug addict mother starting at the ages of 4 and 5 years old. These kids all had serious attachment disorders.
And in the end for most of them, no amount of kindness or nurturing could reverse the early childhood disruption of normal emotional development. And this phenomenon is only increasing in today’s world world of non-existent families, Liberal destruction of morality, and an increasingly dysfunctional government that tries to interfere in every aspect people’s lives in the delusional belief that they can somehow do it better than parents and only end up making things worse. Believe me, I saw it many times in case after case that hit the juvenile system. There is no fixing it once it’s broken, we need to rebuild functional families or the trend will just continue to slide down the slippery slope.
So, in the meantime it’s up to all of us to be the sheepdogs for schools, movie theaters, restaurants and concerts among other places.
