Success with the Legend Round

Re “350 Legend Bolt-Actions from Winchester, Savage, and Ruger,” July 2020 I purchased a Ruger American Ranch Rifle in 350 Legend and used it last deer season. I shot a buck at about 40 yards using Hornady’s 170-grain round, and it really brought him down with just one shot. Also, used it on a coyote […]

A Second on What Women Want

Re “Firing Line,” June 2020 I second the letter on women over 50 looking for a good carry weapon! As I read the letter, I was like, check, check, check! I’m 51. I’ve had a permit for more than 20 years. I’ve owned a CZ 75 P01 9mm for many years, and it’s an excellent […]

More 9mm Compacts, Yes

Re “Four New 9mm Pistols from Stoeger, Arex, Ruger, and SIG,” February 2020 Hi, Todd. Let me just begin by saying that I really enjoy your magazine, and it’s getting better all the time. The prose and grammar are much better recently than even a couple of years ago. I understand that the raters aren’t […]
