Net News: May 1998

By Jeff W. Zimba

Greetings and salutations. First a quick re-introduction. The Internet is an invaluable source of information for each and every one of us. We basically have the resources of the entire world at our fingertips, and we would like to use this column as a means of assisting one another in our search for information. We are gladly soliciting tips from those of you who have some helpful hints for other web surfers in our audience. We would like to hear from some Sysops who may have ideas on proper internet etiquette for some of the newer internet users as well.

Other data we will accept in this forum could include new hardware we should be aware of, new firearms related software; including programs related to testing and evaluating ballistics, CAD software that may be of interest to our Title II’s, compendiums and data bases of related interests, and so on.

It is our intent to make Net News a regular column, and the amount of input we receive from you will dictate it’s frequency. If you have anything you would like to contribute to Net News, you will find our contact information at the end of this column.

We have been getting quite a few requests to run a list of gun related web sites and that is exactly what we are going to do this month. The following are just a sampling of the sites you have sent to us and we will list more as they come in. We have not had time to check each individual site, so the following listing is not any type of endorsement by SAR. We are simply passing your requests along. At a later date, we will actually get you some interesting updates on cool sites that we recommend, and hope to have a “Hall of Fame” and a “Hall of Shame” listing.
