Cool catalogue of all things larger than small-arms pistols and rifles and heavy cannons: heavy-machine guns through automatic cannon. Things like .50 caliber machine guns to anti-aircraft 40mm auto-cannon are discussed here....and in an orderly catalogued sense with very nice wit and style. Definetly a plus for left-brained tech-heads.
