Although I haven’t subscribed to any magazine in years I recently sent my subscription in for both of yours. When I choose one to buy from the magazine rack, I always buy the ones that have Mike in them. His articles are always well researched, good reading and interesting. I learn from them. He breaks new ground with articles on homemade shot loads, comparing WWII rifles, actually owning and shooting submachine guns. Any magazine Mike writes for I figure is a quality one. Robert Jennings via e-mail Something in My Coffee) is a classic. What is needed now is a book of John’s articles. It should sell like $15 primers at a gunshow. Great job Connah-mon Watta-Boo. Sam Juckett Albuquerque, New Mexico FiEld EdiTORS John Taffin, Holt Bodinson, Dave Anderson, Clint Smith, Massad Ayoob, Mike “Duke” Venturino Sam Fadala, David Codrea, John Morrison, Glen Zediker, John Sheehan, Jacob Gottfredson, Mike Cumpston, John Barsness, Dave Douglas Traveling With Handguns Nice article by Massad Ayoob, however, he may need to clarify his text and the accompanying photo showing the TSA “mini locks” is just plain wrong. Massad states “TSA approved locks are pathetic, but it’s the rules…” The rules actually prohibit the use of TSA “pass key type” locks on the case containing the firearm. The locks are to be operable/opened only by the passenger checking said baggage. The luggage containing the locked, gun case/box can be any type, hard side or fabric and the traveler should use the deservedly maligned TSA approved locks on this “outer” luggage. My wife and I use a Pelican 1200 case for our pistols, one in her luggage, one in mine, and so far have had no issues with either the airlines or TSA. We have our names and cell phone numbers affixed to the Pelican cases, to allow the authorities to contact us in case of any “issues.” As an aside, Ayoob notes both New York and Chicago airports are potential problem spots for passengers traveling with handguns. Not surprising since both cities are home to the most anti-gun, anti-self defense mayors in the US. My suggestion (and personal practice) is not to visit either city. Vote with your feet and your dollars! John Clark Sebring, Florida I suspect I phrased it badly in the article. What I was trying to say was that you need locks on the “inside case,” as required by TSA. Agreed that you don’t want them to be locks anyone but you can open.—Mas FmG PUBliCATiONS shootingindustry.com Publisher & Editor: Russ Thurman Advertising: Delano Amaguin, 888.732.6461 email: delano@shootingindustry.com americancopmagazine.com Editor: Suzi Huntington Advertising: Denny Fallon, 800.426.4470 email: denny@americancopmagazine.com americanhandgunner.com Publisher & Editor: Roy Huntington Advertising: Steve Evatt, 800.533.7988 email: steve@americanhandgunner.com gunsmagazine.com Editor: Jeff John Advertising: Andrew Oram, 866.903.1199 email: andrew@gunsmagazine.com fmgpublications.com Editor: Sammy Reese Advertising: Scott McGregor, 800.553.7780 email: scott@gunsmagazine.com TEL: 888.651.7566, FAX 858.605.0205 tracy@fmgpublications.com NATIONAL ADVERTISING: 12345 World Trade Dr., San Diego, CA 92128, TEL: 866.972.4545, FAX 858.605.0211, anita@shootingindustry.com Spyderco I would appreciate the opportunity to say thank you to Spyderco knives for their support to members of the US Armed Forces. Not only do they produce high-quality tools we can use in the discharge of our duties, but they have a monthly drawing for a special edition Native knife for deployed service members. Their devotion and kindness does not go unnoticed. Kudos to their leadership. Lastly, there are four things I have in my possession at all times here in Iraq: my sunglasses, my M9 Beretta, an MOD automatic knife accessible to my right hand and a Spyderco Delica accessible to my left hand. We pass around copies of American Handgunner and GUNS magazine until they’re ragged. Keep up the great work. Soper out! Dana D.
