I'm going to be writing a couple of new Role Play Guides soon. One of those is a general combat guide, and that will necessitate knowledge on firearms. On each and every guide, I do research. I read sources with verifiable credentials, ask some people who are passionate about the subject questions, and so on. I know Iwaku has a surprising number of gun nuts passionate enthusiasts, so teach me what you know. Be informative. Dispel myths and rumours that drive you nuts that you see in Hollywood or video games. I'll still be reading other, more verifiable sources for information on firearms, but teach me what y'all know, if you want to spare a few minutes for me. How does one fire a gun without horribly injuring themselves like an idiot? How effective are guns based on calibre? What the fuck is a calibre, exactly? What are some of the primary differences between historical firearms, and firearms of the modern day? How effective are defenses against firearms? (Ex: Kevlar vests, plate mail, riot blast shields.) What are some of the basic tactics and strategies involved in firearm use? If there are any particular myths you'd like to dispel about firearms, which ones in particular here grind your gears? TEACH ME.
