Comments of the Week

By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily

Editor's Note: Some of the best stuff written on this blog comes from those who post comments at the end of Dave's entries. These are three from last week's posts. Click on the headline above each comment to post your own opinion.

On Where are the Women
"I come from an outdoors family where my mothers and sisters have hunted and/or shoot as well! My fiance hunts and goes to the range with me. Her children are interested in hunting as well. I am a VERY lucky man to have a lady in life that enjoys the shooting (as well as fishing) sports!
Nothing turns me off, and scares me more, than men who think women shouldn't hunt or fish. This behavior has done more to contribute to the decline of hunting and fishing in today's society than alienating women from the grand wonderful heritage of hunting and fishing."

On The Colt Model 1911
"I have heard this before, about the 1911 NOT being a sporting gun, and it has not been especially true in my book. I have enjoyed using it on armadillos, snakes, jackrabbits, and once scared the wits out of a running coyote at 200 yards--witnessed. I believe that we have consigned the old workhorse to a retirement home, and forgot that he has a lot of mule in him, and when he arrives, he has a lot of kick in him . . ."

On My Deal With the Anti-Gun Mayors
"I agree that most of the rationale behind gun control laws amounts to knee-jerk reactionary political band aid solutions to complex social problems. But as a resident of the greater Chicago area, I am also aware of the horrific price of gun violence on a nearly daily basis. In the past few weeks, two 14-year-old girls were shot dead in their homes by random gang gunfire. Not aimed at them of course, but victims of stray bullets. As a responsible gun owner I don’t want to have my rights curbed by these terrible events. But as a father, I don’t want some random round to hit my child."

Don't know anything about a Davis P380, but the Iver Johnson 22 Target rings a bell.A publication called "Shotgun News" carries parts for just about anything. Numrich Arms also has a supply of hard to find parts that are nearly impossible to locate elsewhere!Don't have any other info but I'm sure that they can both be located on the web somewhere!Bubba

You can not use gun and violence together, guns do NOTHING unless in a hand of a human. They are only ITEMS [tools] that can not determain right from wrong.Violence, is the main word or problem to solve. Its sad that people die, but is it any more orany less if they're beaten to death or stabbed? Violence has Many ways of hurting or killing,knifes, pens, pencils, scissors, ball bats, chains, cars, a closed fist. It mostly depends on what the individual[s] are capable of. The human Brain is the weapon, ANYTHING else is simply a tool.Thank you for listeningJohn
