As Gunnery Network has grown and matured, I have tried to create
sections and sub-directories that contain similar content. The
best Index is on the Main Index page,
typically the second page you see after you click on the gun graphic
or "Enter GunneryNetwork.com" on page one. For ease of
navigation, this is also the page you return to if you click on the
"Cross Hairs or Bullet" graphic on the top and bottom of most
To return to the Main Index, simply click on the
"Cross Hairs" on the top and
bottom of most pages and you will be taken to the main index
page. From the main index, you can see the many different
sections and pages from the left hand column. The main
areas are: Gun Safety, Gun
Rights, Gun News, Gun
Glossary, Gun Links,
Great Gun Sites, Ammo Web, Reloading
Web, The Unofficial SIG Web and Gun
Graphics. A link to all these sections is below. Please
consider making Gunnery Network your homepage
and help yourself to a Free Gunnery

First, Safety Last, Safety Always! - http://www.GunneryNetwork.com/safety/
Our web index starts first with "Gun Safety".
The gun safety link is on top of the index and should be the top thing
we stress and foremost in our minds whenever we handle firearms.
Almost all firearm accidents are preventable. As a
"Jumpmaster" I was taught that the three rules of safety
are; Safety First, Safety Last and Safety Always! Make safe
firearms practices a part of your gun routine and teach new shooters
and young folks about range safety. On the range or around guns, we
are all range safety officers. We are as gun owners also
"ambassadors" of our sport and for the legitimate defensive use of arms
to the "outside" world.
Sad to say, but their are "people" in this world, who would
like nothing better than to portray gun owners as a bunch of
"unsafe, inbred, booger picking morons", that are "cornfield
killers" and "low life uneducated red necks." Law
abiding gun owners can
easily dispel these ugly stereotypes with safe firearm handling
practices and by engaging the "antis" in intelligent dialog.
Particularly about the millions of legitimate defensive uses of
firearms annually. And the fact that 99.9% of all firearms
in America will never be used in a crime. Feel free to print out
or other wise redistribute any of the information on the safety
page. Safety is everyone's business, so pass it on.
Not be Infringed - RKBA Web - http://www.GunneryNetwork.com/RKBA/
The Right to Keep and Bear Arms Web or
RKBA Web is designed to increase awareness of the political issues
involving our basic Human Rights, Gun Rights and Civil Rights. The
RKBA Web exists to make the public aware of our struggle to maintain the
right to keep and bear arms. We attempt to inform and educate
our readers by using objective, honest, unfiltered information.
I feel that a definite bias exists in the main stream media and hope
that with my efforts and those of the many contributing writers, we
can even the playing field and help protect our basic human rights to
self-defense and personal firearms ownership.
Technical Information -
Glossary - http://www.GunneryNetwork.com/glossary/
The Gun Glossary is intended to
increase one's knowledge, understanding and appreciation of
firearms. Starting as a single page of definitions in 1998, it has
developed into a very large multi-media firearms
encyclopedia over the last four years. Gun Glossary is rich in
information and is chalked full of graphics, history and unusual
items. It also contains the basic definitions and common usage
of most firearm, shooting, gun, ammunition and gunnery related
The Gun Glossary is certainly worth a look and is also
available for use as a comprehensive reference and as a training tool
for new and old shooters alike. The Gun Glossary is available
for use by Gun Clubs, Police Departments and for other non-profit
use. To receive a copy of the Gun Glossary in a format suitable
for your organizations use, just give us a call at 541-487-4902
(Pacific Time) or send an e-mail to: [email protected].

A Word of
As an honest firearms enthusiast, and since I am not an engineer or
gunsmith, I must caution readers that although I have done
my best to validate and otherwise confirm the technical, legal and
historical information contained on the site, it is for reference
only. Some legal information and advise is given, but I am not a
lawyer. Please take the information and use it for reference
strongly encourage you to validate and confirm any information on
firearm and gun laws, as this area of law is complicated and varies
greatly from one location to another. The gun laws in California
are not the same as the gun laws in Oregon and so on. I also caution that much
of the ballistic and reloading information has to be taken with a
cautionary statement. For safe hand loads. start with 10% less
powder than the listed maximum loads
and work your way up. Your loads and results will vary.
The same cautionary statement applies for the owners manuals and
maintenance and customization information provided. Be careful,
be safe and seek professional help with your guns and ammo. If
you have a question, I will be happy to assist you. Feel free to
call us at the numbers below or send and e-mail to: [email protected]
All About Marv a.k.a. "Marvin The Viking"
Network loosely exemplifies my experience and interests in
firearms. I am a firearms enthusiast and shooter. I am a
certified law enforcement instructor and a certified firearm
instructor. I am
also a political activist and a writer with a love of firearms and
history. I am not a gunsmith and I am certainly not an engineer. However,
I do have great love for guns and shooting and
I have been actively involved with gunnery, both personally and
professionally for over 30 years.
I am the proud owner of
several fine arms and carry a handgun 99% of the time, as the law
allows. My personal favorites are the SIG P226 and Walther P99
in a side arms. And the AR-15 in a defensive/sport rifle and the Steyr ProHunter SBS, Weatherby Mark V and Remington 700 in a hunting
rifle. My defensive shotgun preference is for the Mossberg 500/590 series
in 12 gauge and for Sub Machine Guns I like the Swedish K, the Uzi, and the
H&K MP5. I try to visit the shooting range a few times a
week and I compete in IDPA and IPSC and do some skeet & trap
shooting as well. Mostly I just shoot holes in paper.
My personal shooting experience started back in the early 70's.
Like so many American boys and girls from the mid west, I was taught
at an early age to appreciate what the shooting sports and hunting have to
offer. My Grandfather had a large working farm and I was allowed
to progress from my Daisy BB gun to a .410 shotgun and on to a 12-gauge
Bolt-Action Mossberg, soon followed by a "sporterized" British .303 rifle with
a 3x9 Weaver scope.
As an early teen I participated in duck, quail,
pheasant and dove hunting in my Kansas and Oklahoma environs, and on my
grand parents farm in Pawnee county. I also used my paper route
money to buy a skeet thrower and several cases of clay pidgins.
I built my first gun, a .56 caliber CVA black powder mountain pistol
when I was 15 and have been reloading since I was 16. (For those
keeping track I am now 43.)
My professional gunnery experience stems from my enlistment in the
U.S. Army in 1978 and a long and fruitful carrier as a Paratrooper and
Special Operations soldier. I was medically retired as a Master
Sergeant (E-8) after 15 years of service. During my time in
service I was fortunate to be assigned or attached to some of the
finest military units in the world, including the 101st Airborne
Assault), the 82nd Airborne Division, 10th, 5th and 7th Special Forces
Groups (Airborne) and elements of the Special Operations Command in
the U.S., Europe, South West Asia and in Central and South America.
hope you enjoy Gunnery Network and I hope it can help you understand
the importance of guns and firearms in our society and their impact on
history. If you have any questions or suggestions about anything
