New Blog - High Capacity Magazines

I decided that since I can string words together into semi-coherent sentences, that maybe I should write down some of my thoughts so that they might be used to help our cause. Feel free to link and share as you'd like.

The first article is about "High capacity" magazines. Let me know what you think.

Feel free to list any grammar or spelling mistakes here so I can change them. Certainly, if you see a factual error, I'd like to know about that as well!

I've got a bunch of other articles I'm working on, so stay tuned for more.

Sounds like a good article to me. I did not pick it apart for any errors though. The reason I think it is good is because it does not get bogged down in too many specifics or technical details and could be easily understood by the general public that may not know much or anything about guns.
This is my gun. There are many like her, but this one is mine.

I'm not old. I'm CLASSIC!

Seems reasonably well written, whether or not I might agree with every point.

One thing though:

The capacity of a firearm is called firepower,...
I've NEVER heard that definition before in relation to a single, civilian handgun.

In military terms, firepower is a measure of the number of rounds/missles available to put on target but I've never heard it applied to a SINGLE weapon in civilian hands.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.

Pretty good LevelHead. Can't wait to see some more.
I have a mild interest in guns. Actually, I think the clinical term is "obsession," but that makes me sound like some kind of gun-nut. Which is fair, since I am.

Very readable. Good Job!

One thing. Do you know where I can get one of those engraved AR dust covers that says "MAGIC DEATH RAY" on it?
