Anything you could want to know about guns or related subjects (It's like Wikipedia for your boomstick) - 5,557 pages as of Wednesday, March 4, 2015.
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.
Today's liberals wish to disarm us so they can run their evil and oppressive agenda on us. The fight against crime is just a convenient excuse to further their agenda.

From 1964 until 1967 Winchester sacrificed quality to maintain low pricing and buyers began using the phrase "pre 64" to describe the better made and therefore more desireable Winchesters.
Scoring mechanisms differ. In some, reactive targets are used (targets that fall when hit) and the goal is to knock over all the targets with the minimum elapsed time. In others, paper targets are used, and the score is based on a mathematical formula. One commonly used formula, called Comstock Scoring by the IPSC is (total points scored) / (elapsed time). With the given formula, the goal would be to maximize the points per second scored. Penalties may also be assessed for procedural errors, such as:
not engaging all targets
engaging targets in the wrong order
firing more than the allowed number of shots
Action shooting using reactive targets requires shooters use ammunition with enough momentum to knock over the targets reliably; the tradeoff is that the higher momentum ammunition also results in higher recoil, which makes rapid and accurate shooting difficult. In disciplines that use paper targets, there is often a minimum required power, and use of rounds with less power may be penalized or forbidden.
