Well, here are a couple things we’ve noticed that you could use to alleviate that problem.
Boris Karpa (who did a great job translating Dror testing reports for us a little while back) is running a Kickstarter to translate “The Soldier and Squad in Night Combat”, a WWII Soviet manual on night fighting without modern [...]
We got a tip from Weaponsman that there’s a Brazilian G43 copy, called an M954, closing on GunBroker in a couple hours. These were made in .30-06, and are pretty rare items – and this one has a buy-it-now price of $3975. We don’t know the seller or anything more than the auction notes state, [...]

I’m happy to announce that I will be live with Charles Heller on “America Armed & Free” discussing firearms history and whatever else the conversation wanders into today, from noon until 2pm, Arizona time. It you’re in Southern Arizona, please tune in to AM 1030, KVOI to listen live – and I’ll add the link [...]
After shooting the Bannerman Mosin-Nagant conversion recently, the subject of dangerous military rifles came up when I was talking with a friend. And y’know, there are more than a few designs and conversions that are widely considered dangerous…some really are and some aren’t. To name a few:

So much so that I have decided to take the plunge and make the site my full-time occupation, so that I can continue to expand and improve it. As part of this new step [...]
