Historical Firearms is creating articles about the history of firearms!

Historical Firearms began back in February 2013, as a place for me to share information about the firearms I was studying. Since then its continued to grow with the support of my readers. I've been able to start a number of series including 'The Gun That Killed…' which looks at the firearms used in famous (and some lesser known) assassinations, 'Inventors and Their Guns' which spotlights the men behind the weapons, 'In Action' which looks at combat photographs of firearms in action and 'Cutaway of the Day' which brings together detailed diagrams and photographs of historic guns and explains how they work and the history behind them.

I'm a historian and researching and writing about the past is my passion. I want to continue to expand and improve the content I post on Historical Firearms and to do that I need your help! I appreciate my readers' support and I know that not everyone who reads this will want, or be able, to help but to those of you who are able to and wish to help support Historical Firearms I am very grateful.

To put your patronage into perspective; if you have a monthly subscription to a magazine on average it might cost you as much as £5 ($7) per issue. If you donate just $1 a month you're ensuring that Historical Firearms' daily content can continue to be created for much less than you'd pay for a monthly magazine subscription. 

Everyone who becomes a patron will have the opportunity to suggest/request content they would like to see on the site. Anything from a historical event to an antique firearm. In addition to this everyone who pledges $3+ will receive Historical Firearms' monthly hi-resolution desktop wallpaper! Those who pledge $8 a month will receive a 'Thank You Package' including a Historical Firearms bookmark, a cool keyring and a personal thank you note from me.

Historical Firearms is a work in progress, there is much more I'd like to do and your help will enable me to bring you more articles, images and information.  

Thanks for reading and thanks for your support!
