What is Guns Guns Guns

Guns Guns Guns: Gun Pages Central is a continuation of the effort started on The Gun Page to build an index of firearms related links. It started as a list of less than 50 links (this was years ago – when the web was still young). As the list grew and the job of editing it by hand became bigger and bigger – an automated procedure was started.

Eventually this grew into the system used today. There are hundreds (1000+) URLs in the database that are used to generate the alphabetical and categorical files on GunHoo.


Are there ever any broken links ?

There will always be broken links. Looking at our access logs – we have an international audience surfing our pages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know our server or internet connection can be down occasionally (sometimes due to a router in a far away city owned by somebody else) – so with the hundreds of links on GunHoo – there is probably a link right now that is unaccessible.

To minimize broken links – an automated process generates a report, that is then double checked before links are removed from our master list. This process takes hours of computer/connect time – attempting to check ALL the URLs that go onto the Guns Guns Guns pages.
