After reading the latest issue of “Combat Handguns“, I’ve decided to never look at this magazine again. Its headlines are almost a male-testosterone-gun-owner version of stuff you might see in supermarket tabloids:

“4 AGAINST 1 SHOWDOWN – You’re Surrounded by Gangbangers – You’re 15-foot .32Auto Equalizer!”
“YOUR DAUGHTER’S UNDER ATTACK – He’s Got A Knife To Her Throat – You’ve got One Shot Across The Bedroom!”

If there exists a sane, non-fanatical monthly publication for owners of firearms, that doesn’t suck up to the NRA and/or take up half its pages with rantings about how our “rights are being taken away” and how everyone needs to join the local militia and carry a gun 24/7/365 because of “unsavory people” who might rob you, let me know because I haven’t been able to find it yet. Yes, we have a right to keep and bear arms, but hysterical propaganda like this is NOT the way to promote it.

Yes, I’m a member of the NRA – but both the NRA and its advocates go overboard when it comes to politics and fanaticism; I stay out of that. I own a gun, let me own my gun and take training courses and shoot at the range and buy ammunition in peace.
