A special "Thank you!" to all who have taken the time to visit this
site. Thanks, too, to those of you who take the time to make comments,
suggestions and provide additional link and range information. This site is for
you -- those who understand that Amendment II of the US Constitution, as does the Constitution itself, does not grant an individual right -- it
proclaims this right to be inherent in a free citizenry.
"The right to bear arms is not granted by the
Constitution; neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The second amendment means no more than that it shall not be
infringed by Congress, and has no other effect than to restrict the powers of
the national government."
- The Supreme Court of the United States,
in U.S. v. Cruikshank
"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having
the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and
form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a most sacred
right - a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world."
-- Abraham Lincoln, 1848
[T]he American right to bear arms [is] "the palladium
of the liberties of a republic," which served as the ultimate guarantor of
all other rights. -- Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story, Commentaries on
the Constitution of the United States § 1889, at 746 (Boston, Hilliard, Gray,
& Co. 1833).
"Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure."
-- Thomas Jefferson
This site is for you -- those who enjoy the oldest outdoor activity:
hunting; being afield. This site is for you -- those who enjoy various forms of
competition with arms with the inherent building of self-confidence and
comradeship. A friend told me this site was my way of "talkin' with gun
people." I guess that's true. I'll be working to enhance and improve the
information available at "The Gun Guy®." The number of you who
"stop 'round" demonstrates it is a worthwhile effort.

While some sites parade little "achievement icons," this site gets
little notice due to a minimum of glitz. At The Gun Guy® site,
you find information - a lot of it. To that end, some of the
"awards" of which I'm most proud are detailed here:
