If you are a history buff, or an imaginary armchair soldier (videogame buff?), or heck even if you used one of these guns in service to your country, this is the show for you. Although it is approaching a decade old, this is one of the more informative shows on firearms. It brings you inside the gun, its history, its effectiveness, and how it changed the world. For authenticity, Historical Weapons Experts give you the details, and even put in a little trigger time. Tales of the Gun exposes aspects and perspectives of the gun and its critical role in history that other shows do not.
Episodes cover such things as Infamous Guns that were used in famous assassinations, Guns of WWII, the M-16,and the Ak-47. If it's a gun, be it historical or futuristic(for 10 years ago anyway), Tales of the Gun knows about it and has an episode all about it.
You can still occasionally catch episodes of Tales of the Gun on the History Channel in the mornings, but such showings are becoming increasingly rare. This series is one of the best that History Channel has to offer, and definitely one of the least known. Check it out!
The only way this show could be better is if they brought it back with R. Lee Ermey from Mail Call (or Hollywood fame, as it were).
