Reading up
 
Can anyone tell me where I can go to read up on the ins and outs of guns and learn everything an intelligent person in the gun realm should know?

Start with Massad Ayoob's "In the Gravest Extreme" and "Principles of Personal Defense" by Col. Jeff Cooper.

Thank you. And that will teach me about firearms mechanics, terminology, and caliber difference?

Start with a basic home firearm safety course.

No, it will teach you the significance and responsibility of owning a handgun.

These are great but likely more advanced then what you're looking for.

A good reloading manual will familiarize you with most of the

popular calibers, and many of the guns used with them.

As to the rest, perhaps Gun Digest, and Google.


Sorry, there's no real substitute for years of owning and shooting guns,

and many people who are proficient in one area know next to nothing

about other types. Case in point:

See many of my posts in the AR section?

That's because I know less about ARs than B.O.

knows about morals and ethics...
