    Dan Hall, a former Army captain just launched GunUp.com, a new resource for gun enthusiasts.

    http://www.gunup.com

    The main focus is to build a resource for new and experienced gun owners, helping them to discover guns and pricing info and promoting responsible gun use with articles from a wide network of bloggers.

    They are still adding guns so you won't find every single gun there (sorry Sig fans), but there are many thousands so it's a good start.

    The GunFinder is a pretty cool way to compare thousands of guns by caliber, features, price etc. You need to register to check that out . From the home page, look for the GunFinder banner with the six 1911's. You need to have Silverlight and a recent version of Windows or Mac OS X.

    Here's an article about Dan from last week:

    tried to register but they didn't know what Kimber I had?
    WTF?

    too much work there.He needs to change that crap.
    Why would it not take my gun? If I need more details,he needs to ask for less.

    pretty cool system, messed around with it for a little after registering, not bad to have a cool database for my firearm inquiries.

    8 - thanks for the post. We are excited about our launch and appreciate the support from the local gun enthusiast community.

    mjbskwim,
    We are in process of adding more guns and images to our database, including kimber. We added a text box for you to type in your favorite gun even if it is not in our database. If you PM your GunUp Username and favorite kimber, I would be happy to add that to your profile. Thanks,

    Dan Hall
    CEO, GunUp.com

    I had a brief look. I selected Ruger in the manufacturer list and semi-automatics (and semi automatic) in the action list, and the result was "there are no guns of that type". If just the manufacturer is selected then it will show photos of the various Ruger semi-autos. People new to guns are going to have problems with searching.
