Anything you could want to know about guns or related subjects (It's like Wikipedia for your boomstick)
- 5,555 pages as of Friday, August 22, 2014.
If it's about guns, gun rights, gun grabbers or any other related subject, sooner or later it's going to be here. Whether it's sniper rifles, shotguns, WWII arms, ammunition or anything else, we're out there scrounging up anything and everything that we can find. Yes, this is something of an ambitious (some would say impossible) project but we're not quitting until we have it all in one place. Have a look around and see some of what our contributors have put together so far.
