I just found this place,Firearms History, Technology & Development , thanks to The Gun Blog Black List and Oh Boy am I stoked.
For one thing, I love old machinery,history and learning about old technology.
This place has it all clear up to modern weapons.
I can't even begin to describe it properly, there is so much there.
The different ways people have used to put rifling in gun barrels?
Several ways, explained in detail and then backed up with video.
Crazy antique guns you never heard of, bizarre guns, modern guns,explanations of the technology that was available and when innovations came about. Educational articles about every aspect of firearms, Ballistics, bullets, powder, primers, reloading, rifles, cannons, Modern jargon explained, definitions of terminology with illustrations,you name it, it's there.
Absolutely fascinating information.
I took a peek and hit a time warp, the next thing I know I have been there 45 minutes already and that was just browsing!
Go take a gander but be prepared to spend some time there, you won't be able to help yourself.
It's like an encyclopedia and a museum combined with Ripley's Believe It or Not.
