What's New in the Gun Industry

Mike Piccione told me to search the web for guns that were listed as new for 2010, and being a person who doesn’t know much about guns, I learned a lot. This is my last article before I return to college and I want to thank everyone for the positive comments and the hospitality that you have shown to me. As Mike would say “Thanks Gunners!”
