My new column in the International Ammunition Association Journal

Posted on June 22nd, 2013

The upcoming issue of the International Ammunition Association‘s Journal contains the first issue of my new The Pinfire Page. I will use this recurring column to showcase things related to the pinfire system. The following image is taken from this issue and is just a small example of the many things found in this publication. I also attached the index of this issue to show some of the other things that can be found. If you are not familiar with the International Ammunition Association you may wish to check out their website (which I happened to redevelop and maintain) at You can even download an example whole issue on the website at this link.
