Gun Encyclopedia - Useful site for Authors

Author's Note: This is a repost from my other blog, but I thought a gun encyclopedia would be useful to some so I've posted it here as well.

So I'm currently writing a short story with a character who is an assassin and I wanted her to use handguns. Since I know nothing about handguns at all I turned to Google and this really useful site popped up. It has everything you could possibly need to know about guns and ammo. of the 20th Century.

World Guns
World Guns - An Encyclopedia of Weapons of the 20th Century


I thought I'd pass it on because these are the kind of resources I know we writers are always after. I suspect many of you have found it already, but I hadn't so for those that also haven't here is the link.

I had no idea there were so many different types of gun out there; it's all a little scary really. The site gives run downs on what a type of gun is as well, so if you want to know the difference between a submachine gun and a machine gun, this is the site for you.

The site is in English and Russian.

This is a list of the categories the site has:


  • Handguns
  • Submachine guns
  • Military Rifles
  • Assault Rifles
  • Sniper Rifles
  • Civilian Rifles
  • Shotguns
  • Machine guns
  • Anti-tank rifles
  • Grenade launchers
  • Ammunition
  • Traumatic Weapons
