We are always on the search for interesting stories and other articles to share with you here on Guns and Gunsmiths. Most of the articles come from the staff of instructors at the American Gunsmithing Institute, but occasionally we have featured articles from subscribers such as yourself. Excellent examples are “What’s that rifle?” – a Canadian Custom by Dana Delesoy and Fitting Magpul Hunter Bottom Metal to a Remington 700 BDL Stock by Ryan Hoover.
As gunsmiths or gun “tinkerers” we all like to share information about how to solve a particular firearms problem, how to set up a gun for a particular purpose, or in fact, anything to do with guns. So here is an opportunity for you all to reach fame and fortune (well, fame at least) by sharing your own stories, tips, projects, ideas or whatever you think may be of interest to other Guns and Gunsmiths readers.
We are looking for articles on firearm projects that you have completed (with either photos or video), stories about your hunting exploits, gunsmithing tips and tricks you have accumulated over the years, tips for building your gunsmithing business, product reviews, hunting, shooting, home defense and survival tips, personal experiences that have shaped your love for firearms–basically anything to do with guns.
Here are a few guidelines:
- Articles should to be at least 250 words long and drawings, photos or videos are encouraged (photos also need to be reasonable quality–not tiny cell phone photos taken from 100 yards away, and preferably no more than 6 photos per article.)
- Avoid politics, sexual references, crude language, gory hunting disembowelment photos, or anything else that may offend those among us of a more sensitive nature
- Don’t worry about spelling or grammar–my job as editor is to fix those kind of mistakes
- As editor it is also my decision as to whether I publish your story or not–bribes will be considered but are not a guarantee of acceptance
- Plagiarism will not be tolerated and if you quote someone else, include the source. We want your original material, not a rehash of something you read or heard somewhere else
- If possible please also include a photo of yourself to accompany the story and a short bio telling us where you live, what you do, etc.
- If you runs a firearms business of any kind you may also include a reference to that including a website link if you have one–THAT’S FREE ADVERTISING FOR YOU!
All submissions or questions should be sent to me by email.
