Whether you're a seasoned veteran or completely new to the shooting sports, one thing we all have in common as Canadians is that we live in a country that is, for the most part, not very 'gun-friendly'. With firearms retailers and Clubs few and far between, and internet/published resources heavily influenced by business interests geared primarily to American shooters it can be frustrating for those of us who practice safe, responsible firearms ownership and hunting in the Great White North.

Enter Guns-101; a free, internet-based resource available to anyone looking for unbiased general and specific firearms information on a wide range of subjects from handguns and longguns to ammunition and reloading targeted specifically to Canadian shooting enthusiasts.
