Many errors related to weapons and the people who use them appear in television, movies, and books. We help writers, journalists, and enthusiasts. No question is too basic or detailed to ask here. This group is moderated by experts in the field, and questions will normally be answered within 48 hours, if not sooner. Feel free to ask questions about guns, blades, poisons, etc. in self-defense, military, flying, hunting, law enforcement, competitions, crime, and so on. General survival, firefighter, medical, forensics, law enforcement, hunting, disaster recovery, and MacGyver-esque questions can also be answered.
Examples of questions: What type of gun could I hide in my bra? What is the difference between this and that, and which brand is best for __? What weapon does this gang-banger prefer? What weapon would a soldier use in 1943? What characteristics would a samurai sword have? What weapons do assassins use for this circumstance, and how would they prepare or cleanup? What can I tell about the gun and user by looking at the bullet? How would SAR handle this situation? What happens to prisoners when __? Can I really make a flare gun from bubblegum and mouthwash? What happens in a knife fight? If I were dropped in Antarctica, how could I survive? . . . Anyway, you get the idea.
