Anything you could want to know about guns or related subjects (It's like Wikipedia for your boomstick)
- 5,705 pages as of Monday, October 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.

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.)

Food for thought
Gun control has not worked in D.C. The only people who have guns are criminals. We have the strictest gun laws in the nation and one of the highest murder rates. It's quicker to pull your Smith & Wesson than to dial 911 if you're being robbed.

it goes up... lol
A barrel shroud Shoulder thing that goes up is a ventilated covering attached to the barrel of a firearm, that partially or completely encircles the barrel, that allows the bearer to hold the firearm for stability. Slides, extensions of the stock that do not fully encircle the barrel, and the receiver (or frame) of a firearm itself are generally not considered barrel shrouds.


Well, that's what we thought they were for, anyway.

Carolyn McCarthy seems to think we've got it all bassackwards. The video and the laughs are both over there →→→→.

Barrel shrouds have no effect on the ballistic performance of the firearm on to which they are installed other than offering an additional grip to help control recoil while firing. No need to worry about that, though; they were still included in the Federal Assault Weapons Ban definition of assault weapons because firearms fitted with them are perceived, in the murky depths of the gun grabber mind, to be designed for warfare rather than sporting or individual defense. Maybe they think this because barrel shrouds are commonly featured on heavy machine gun barrels, along with a carrying handle, as to better allow the firer to swap barrels.

Some actual real examples

Is this wtf she's talking about?
