Anything you could want to know about guns or related subjects (It's like Wikipedia for your boomstick)
- 5,704 pages as of Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
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.

OOPS!

Well, this is embarrassing.

We don't seem to have an article of the day for this date. Maybe you could help us out and make or suggest one.
(It's fun! trust us.)

Nothing, apparently. Maybe you know something that happened today...?

Food for thought
False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crime.
- Cesare Beccaria, quoted by Thomas Jefferson

Did you know?
  • The only version of the Madsen sold in any quantity was the .30 caliber (.30-06). These were bought by Columbia.
  • With over 7,000,000 sold, the Remington 870 holds the record for the best-selling shotgun in US history, but has not matched the longevity of the Winchester model 12 (which was produced for over 90 years)

Not very impressive, are they?
A Hellfire trigger is a patented[1] device that allows a semi-automatic firearm to fire at a rate approaching that of fully automatic firearms. When the trigger is pressed, the Hellfire device disengages the trigger return spring, which moves the operator's trigger finger. Basically, it's a small metal gizmo that clamps to the trigger guard behind the trigger of your semi-automatic rifle or pistol. It has a "finger" that presses against the back of your trigger, and the pressure exerted on the trigger is adjustable. The net effect of this is to increase the force that attempts to return your trigger to its forward position. Thus the Hellfire system allows you to fire your gun at "full-auto" rates, even though you are still pulling the trigger each time a round is discharged. Some users may also use the Hellfire device in conjunction with bump firing techniques to fire more rapidly.

While the device is simple, it is also both unsafe and inefficient. Many users complain about the awkward firing position required to shoot a Hellfire trigger-equipped firearm. Use of the trigger may also damage a gun or cause it to malfunction, since most semi-automatic firearms are simply not designed to handle the substantially greater stress of high rates fire.
