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.

Ah, the Ar-15... is there anything it can't do be?

The rifle that's often referred to (sometimes only half jokingly) as the "Barbie doll for guys" was the brainchild of Eugene Stoner, working forward from his earlier AR-10 design, and first saw production in 1958. Since then, literally millions of AR15s and its variants have been made for the civilian market by just about every company that's ever made guns.

(Okay, so we're exaggerating about that last part; but it really does seem like everybody and their dog has manufactured these things at one time or another.)

With a cornucopia of accessories that would put Mr. Potato Head to shame, the AR15 can adapt to almost any shooting need. Pound for pound, the AR15 is quite possibly the shooter's best buy for under $1000.

That's none too shabby for a rifle that originally weighed less than 6 lbs.

Food for thought
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?

Article Of The Moment
Dry firing is the practice of "firing" a firearm without ammunition. That is, to pull the trigger and allow the hammer or striker to drop on an empty chamber.

This technique is often used to simulate actual firing when there is not a suitable place to practice with live ammunition. The primary benefit of this practice is refined trigger control. For most common cartridges, there are snap caps available to reduce the risk of damaging the firing pin. It is generally acceptable to dry fire more modern centerfire firearms without a cartridge or snap cap. However, dry firing a shotgun or rimfire firearm can damage the firing pin. Furthermore, damage can occur to the chamber mouth of a rimfire firearm.

Dry firing may also refer to the firing of a bow or other weapon without ammunition. Dry firing a compound bow may cause the cracking of the limbs of the bow, or may completely knock the string off causing possible injury to the shooter, or it may do nothing at all depending on the draw weight, cam type, and bow type.
