    I would like one or two samples of pretty much all the guns.

    I suppose at the more achievable end is a single shot falling block rifle. Not sure why I want one. Not sure how I'd justify needing...

    Cooper also had a pretty strong opinion on the .223 Remington being a wimpy little poodle shooter, a proper military rifle having to be a .308, and has written that since the Ruger Mini-14 has a...

    During our 1911 period, my girlfriend and I went through quite a lot of Meg-Car 8 round magazines. We shot a fair bit in an indoor range back then, and discovered the base plates fractured easily...
