A collection of articles in and around Gun Control, and how it has been skewed and does not work. Statistics are also here along with a good amount of reading, that is PRO gun. This will be one of your favorites to keep I am sure!
- Handgun Wounding
Factors and Effectiveness
Onsite link to the FBI file if you want to download or open the pdf (about 202k ... not too big) to read about the effectiveness of handgun wounding. Their observation is that most handguns, including the biggest, are simply over rated. Need to stop someone, use a shotgun or rifle, but carrying them is difficult, so we use handguns.
- Gun Owners of
Much information on firearm legislation, gun owner issues, articles, resources, and more. They are a lobby group, similar to the NRA. They have a recent statement about the "National Geographic" TV special "Guns In America, that shows that there is more bunk than truth in that program. Another excellent PRO-GUN link.

Worlds foremost outfitters! From tents, hiking, fishing, hunting, cooking, YOU name it, they probably have it. One of the most unique guarantees of the business as well. They have several store locations scattered across the country with the main store at Sidney, Nebraska. I worked there in the warehouse one winter just before Christmas. HUGE is a good description. That was several years ago, and now they have scattered warehouses to make shipping from online orders much quicker to you. If you are into outdoors and outdoor recreation, this is a definite stop.

Ken Rockwell Photography
If you do any photography, or contemplate doing photography, you will find an IMMENSE resource of info at his site. He covers a lot of aspects of photography, including newer digital, all the way up to large format camera. He has excellent reviews on things just our or recently out regarding photography.
