I have picked up a couple good website links recently from posts here and started thinking there must be more out there. So... I though I'd start a thread where we can post links to our favorite web sites (mostly related to the forum,of course). I have scores of gun related links, many of them picked up from here, so most of you will recognize them (some of them even belong to members here), but here are the best/most used ones I have found:
http://www.spw-duf.info/ Thoughts on carrying and defensive use
http://www.handgunlaw.us/ Best info on laws out there
http://www.securityarms.com/ Huge archive of firearm pictures and brief info
http://www.theboxotruth.com/ impartial ammo test results with lots of pictures
http://www.mouseguns.com/ small guns and a lot of other information
http://stevespages.com/page7.htm PDF files of scores of firearm manuals
http://www.gunlawnews.org/Home/ keeping up on news
http://www.keepandbeararms.com/ more news
http://www.eskimo.com/~jbm/calculati...culations.html calculators for various ballistic items
http://www.swissminigun.com/home.html a fascinating little gun (that can't be imported to the USA)
http://www.blindhogg.com/gunsmithing.html misc gunsmithing projects
http://www.slinging.org/ making and using old time slings (the rock throwing kind)
http://www.alpharubicon.com/index2.html hardcore survival. Membership costs, but the front page has a lot of info you don't need to be a member to access
A wealth of info on virtualy any action , This board goes from True home building from scratch thro action jobs . Its free to regester , but costs to gain access to the library of referance material . Good helpfull folks there tho who will assist with almost any smithing issue .
For reloaders - http://www.reloadbench.com/ is a useful site, with a forum as well.
I have a list a mile long of gun oriented sites - will have to check and pick out some useful ones later.
I wonder if someone could sticky this.
+1 good idea

If this list grows - and I have yet to add some more myself - then maybe if I have time later I can make up a page to go into my help area.
Genitron Handgun Database, Handgun Reference Database, Handgun Selector Tool. A public resource for technical information on many handguns.
Wow! Talk about a 'ton' of resources in one place...great sticky...
Gun review site?
I ran into this one by accident today. Don't know if y'all might find it useful or not. It seems fairly thorough at face value but I haven't had time to drill down through them all yet.
Gun Reviews, Firearm Previews and Shooting Comparisons
I'll only toss out a couple that I don't see.
While I like Handgunlaw.us (already listed) for actual laws, I prefer the permit map generator at USACarry. Their generator takes into account your home state so makes the correct choices on your non-resident permits and whether certain states accept non-res permits.
Another little site is GunDirectory. Interesting site for specs on firearms and ratings by users.
