Like most Americans, I have a great deal of respect and gratitude for our men and women in uniform. I myself am a Vietnam veteran and served in the US Army. However, I don’t see the point of all the articles about the latest Howitzer being used in the Middle East and the numerous articles about the war. If I wanted that, I’d subscribe to Stars and Stripes, or Army Digest. I read your magazine to learn about the shooting sports and the latest products on the market. I mean no disrespect to our uniformed services but there are better venues for the latest military news than GUNS Magazine. Leon Linderwell via e-mail This isn’t the first letter I’ve received like this recently. I run these stories from the battlefields because few stories about our heroes show up in the mainstream news. You wouldn’t have thought we had allies hard in the fight, either. So write if you think these stories should stay or go. —Jeff John His conclusion is correct, but the explanation is slightly off. The density of gases is roughly proportional to their molecular weights. Water vapor (H20) is 18, while nitrogen gas (N2), which makes up 80-percent of air is 28, and oxygen (O2), the remaining 20-percent of air, is 32. Thus is it easy to see that adding water vapor to the atmosphere lowers the density. William Habig West Chester, Penn.

During our training for a tour in Iraq, the very good instructors at Camp Shelby had a saying. Even though you may disagree with them they would say it is not the way but a way to accomplish the task at hand. It does seem that that’s what is wrong with our country today, some folks can’t believe there is a way other than theirs. John M. Taliaferro Master Sergeant, Ret. Staunton, Virginia Blackguns Sir, as a fan of your magazine for a couple of years, it has become boring for me! You have a great people writing for you. But enough is enough about black rifles! Do not get me wrong, I have three of them, but you can’t pick up a magazine without an article on one. I read your magazine for the talented writers and info you provide. Dan Church USAF Ret. WaterPistols Could you please do reviews of water pistols? It’s about the only handgun they trust us with in the UK. Now they are talking about banning airguns and I’m sure they’ll find a lame excuse to ban BB guns, soon all we’ll be able to do is point and shout “bang.” Please keep up your fight for decent law abiding citizens to own and use guns, don’t become like the UK where every decent law abiding citizen who wants a firearm is treated like a wannabe criminal. Great magazine—even the adverts are interesting.
