Electronic-media technology has now made it possible for NRA E-Media to bring back the hot-selling Ultimate Gun Guide, the most ambitious guidebook to contemporary guns ever produced at the time of its original publication in 2008. Now available in a hard-working, easy-to-use app, this new Guide won’t have the constraints of limited pages, and so we are making it bigger and better than ever.
Right off the bat you will find performance profiles and specs of more than 600 recently introduced and current-production rifles, pistols and shotguns, and we will be adding new ones constantly.
For anyone considering the purchase of a new gun—and especially a first gun—the Ultimate Gun Guide is an incredibly useful resource that provides instant comparison shopping of all leading models within every possible category. With the Guide’s advanced search capability you can focus your inquiry on price, size/weight, magazine capacity, and other key features. Because we can constantly update all of this important info, this e-media work will never become outdated like a printed publication.
With the instant-update capability of this new medium, our goal is to hit 1,000 guns by the end of 2012, and continue from there. Before long we plan to include shooting-instruction videos, tips for buying used firearms, and much more. App owners will get great value as this product grows and improves with each upgrade.
You wanted more guns. You wanted a resource to help you compare and evaluate all of the great new guns emerging in today’s marketplace. Well here it is, at your fingertips, available anywhere you can connect to the web or use a mobile device.
Welcome to the new NRA Ultimate Gun Guide.
What's New in Version 1.2
Improvements to Advanced Search and Update features.
NRA Gun Guide update
The prior version worked fine and I was really impressed by the daily gun updates (weekdays). This update does not work at all! Seems to start and then I get the menu bar over a black screen. The app is now worthless until they fix this. If it is fixed again, I would rate probably a 4-4.5. I have been spreading the word about this as a good addition on a couple forums, but now have to alert others not to update!! Running the iPad version on an iPad 1. Found the fix, even with no help for developer. Delete the app and reinstall it. Now it works fine. For those seeing the black screen try this!
Fun but needs more content
It’s fun to browse through the photos. The links to the manufacturers web sites are handy.
This app gives the impression of being an early version. Some of the data is incorrect. For instance, the photo for the Beretta Bobcat is actually a photo of a Beretta Tomcat. The magazine capacity for the Beretta 92 in 9mm is stated as 12, but for most people the magazines are 15.
The data is sparse. For instance, for the Beretta PX4 Storm, it shows only the full size model. I’d like to see the listing include the compact and subcompact models. I’d also like to see text describing the histories of these guns, the design goals and motivations, and so on.
Great App! I've been waiting for this to be released, and was a bit worried when I saw the negative reviews, but so far it works perfectly for me. I even watched an embedded video and searched for several different firearms. Please keep adding more guns, especially older ones that are no longer in production.
