August Issue: Best Ever? Maybe
Reader Durham liked the 9mm and budget-shotgun reviews last month. Reader Allen pointed out some flaws in our 45 Colt load math. Reader Lewis says we might consider dressing our gelatin.
I subscribe to no less than six gun-related magazines. Although I read and enjoy every letter to the editor and editorial column enough to justify the subscription price, I rarely read more than one article from any of them. Dont get me wrong, I skim them all, but most articles just dont fit my use or taste. The August 2010/Vol. XXII, No. 8 issue of Gun Tests magazine was an exception. The 9mm compact article was the very best article Ive read in a year. You guys picked three solid pistols and one that Id call a sleeper (the Ruger). Your testers were thorough and fair and didnt nitpick much. Having owned and/or shot three of the four, I know how hard it is to find enough fault with this group to call a winner and a loser.
