"Tales of the Gun" A historical look

I thought we should have a topic dedicated to looking at the history and evolution of the gun, the inventors and the makers.
.“Tales of the Gun” was a History Channel documentary series.
Although I appropriated that title for this topic, and this first post about “John Browning” is one of those episodes, it isn’t limited to just those episodes.
There are certainly other good documentaries and shows on the subject that will belong here as well.

what i like about Russian firearms, their guns are simple to operate and maintain, heavy, but impervious the weather and conditions, and accurate. in other words , tough and reliable. a lot of em, even though on curio and relic lists, are still used around the world in police forces, military and private security

@GOBLIN I agree. The fact that they are still in service says something.

This was one of the coolest things I had ever seen, when I was a kid learning about WW2.
