I know that when I read these reviews I commonly wonder who is the person that spent the time to write them. You don’t know that, not really knowing if they have any true expertise at all.
What I want you to know about me is that I have been an avid gun enthusiast for nearly 3 decades, meaning I have spent a significant amount of time not only shooting, but checking out the different kinds of equipment to make my own rounds, clean weapons, and all of the other tasks that go along with being a lifelong hunter and marksman. I wrote this review because I have spent a good portion of my life using these kinds of weapons, and people frequently ask me questions and I thought it would be good to share my knowledge with others.
I want you to know that no one has paid me for this. I am not endorsing any product because the company paid me to do so. I am giving you my honest assessment. I have examined every one of these kits, used each one of them, and read a number of reviews about each. This is how I came to my conclusion. [/swr-expand]
