    Shotgun Discussion
    I have a Winchester 1897 shotgun, D series, and I bought a box of 2 3/4 inch Waterfowl Steel shells.

    General Gun Discussion
    Hi there, I don't know much about guns so I hope there is a gun expert who could answer some questions :) Is it possible to tell if someone using a glock is using blanks by observing the gun flare upon firing, or the sound of the shot, or gun recoil? Thanks in advance.
