TRUSTWORTHY GUN REVIEW OR SPAM? Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement review raises questions

November 19, 2015

Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement is a Harris Publication that has been around for a long time.  I can remember buying it twenty-five years ago when I got out of college.

It's still around today, although like many, they are shrinking in circulation.

An article has come to our attention that might detail why that is.

Specifically, take a closer look at that photo and the scope mounted backwards, then read the relevant sections of the article below.

    Wow! ARe you being petty, or what?

    You do realize the gun was handed over to some photographer who, unless it’s Oleg Volk, probably doesn’t know the dangerous end of the gun from his own nostril.

    he probably dropped it and had to get the scope back on for a quick photo shoot.

    C’mon, John! YOu can do better.

    I would just about bet the camera guy was the author.

    Either way, why would Mr. Cameraman change something like a scope.

    My money is on spam.

    It is curious how in many gun rags there is never a bad review?

    When it comes to gun reviews, the only national mag I trust is GunTests.

    I always found it a bit hokey how in other reviews I’ve read they’d take closeups of everything, including the shot groupings. Now I respect that kind of detail and transparency.

      Yep! No pics of groups here, or of the author shooting it, or of his range/setup.

      BEST case, the guy’s otherwise telling the truth, an idiot photographer messed up … and both the author AND editor didn’t catch this. Nor did anyone else at the rag. Completely inexcusable, even if this best case scenario is true.

    Does anyone actually buy or read that crappy mag?

    It is about as worthless as Guns & Ammo, and that’s pretty worthless.

    G&A hasn’t even bothered to visit us in Peoria, either. Somehow I think their dedication to gun rights is tissue thin.

    But what do ya expect from a mag (rag!) for Fuddy-types?
