One of Alexander's favourite guns and outdoor writers (there are not many, he's too choosy) is Carolee Boyles. Check out her website: no fluff and superfluous web gimmicks, but many impressive articles.
Another highly esteemed website is that of Father Frog. Excellent judgement and lots of ballistic info. I also like his humour.
Off the road recommendation: Women's Firearm Network by Keeva Segal (who is an excellent web-designer, incidentally).
The OG's (Kirby Sanders') Firearms Page, with a lot of curio & relics stuff.
Specific Firearm Webpages

Search Engines and Indices for WWW and News

Suchfibel an excellent German language guide to searching in the Net.
www.searchenginewatch.com The corresponding English language site - all you ever wanted to know about search engines, and then some more.

CAUTION: If you only enter Carcano as a single search term in any search engine, you will likely be drowned in an avalanche of webpages about the famous Carcano Theatre, Italian printing shops with the owner's name of Carcano and the JFK assassination. Try to combine search terms such as Carcano rifle(s), Carcano carbine(s), or Carcano ammo, or to exclude words like "kennedy" and "teatro" with the NO operator.
AOL NetFind
Infoseek Guide
SCOTT'S INTERNET HOTLIST. Outdated, but still useful.
Starting Point
Virgilio, good Italian search engine.
Shinyseek, mediocre Italian search engine
web.de, German search engine
