Ugly dude on the cover of SWAT!!

Just Kidding Mr. L!

Congratulations on another great issue of S.W.A.T.. It is the usual healthy mix of hard info and equipment reviews.

I request that you include more articles along the lines of the Pat Rogers checklist articles from past issues.

Leroy Thompson is always interesting too. It is nice for someone to break the AR/1911 lockstep. In that vein, I have really enjoyed the AK articles lately. You should have a pro like Mr. Rogers write up an article on the proper deployment of AKs.

I also love Mr. Awerbucks musings. I wish you could tie him down and formalize his thoughts a little more. I would like to see some "how to" articles from Mr. A in the future.


Thanks, I really enjoy your magazine. It seems like they are coming out more frequently lately, which is a good thing. Hell, I wish you could go weekly.

Thanks!

Thanks, Greg.
In Jan '06 we moved from 9X per year to monthly. It's worked out well.

As to the writers, we'd be hard pressed to "assign" topics to the likes of Louis or Pat. I think the reason their pieces are so well received is because they choose their topics of personal interest.

Greg,
For something different than Louis' regular column, look back at the September 2007 issue for his article Target Diagnostics: Finding And Fixing Shooting Problems. It's complete with a clock-type chart showing typical problems.

I especially enjoyed this last issue. I'm curious about the Grail rifle--how much does it weigh without the suppressor, without the light, and without the Aimpoint (iron sights only)?

Thanks!

For some reason Sully does not list the weight on his website. However, try this link for other specs on the Grail.

Sorry it took so long for my reply. Was waiting for an email response from Sully and he was off training. Here's that response:

I weighed one via our postal scale.
Weight with iron sights only is 7lbs-9oz.
