Just a quick post to keep some informational links in place. Over at Kindleboards, there was a recent thread on writing about guns for those of us who don’t have much shooting experience. The thread is worth reading, but a couple of links were posted that I don’t want to lose track of.
One discovery from that thread is from author R. Doug Wicker, who has written a series of blog posts on firearms for fiction writers. He began with a post on revolvers, and then added a two-part series on semiautomatiics. Here’s Part 1 and here is Part 2. Thanks, R. Doug, for sharing your expertise with the rest of us!
In addition, there was a good bit of discussion on terminology, particularly the use of “clip” vs. “magazine” as ammunition-holding tools. Minuteman Review has an article discussing this further.
