Really great articles and I will have to get back to them and re-read them carefully. ( It's late and I just gave them a quick read. )

Oh, for some odd reason the Doglock article gives me an error message: YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO ACCESS THIS PAGE ??? I assume some sort of technical glitch that will get fixed soon. ( Yes Nathan I realize you have to sleep sometime Razz Laughing Out Loud )

Glad to see some articles about firearms as well as swords or armour.

( Edited: Glitch gone. Happy )

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Interesting read on the lance to pistol history, and I agree with Gordon's thoughts at the end of the piece.

Verycool. I am really happy to see content like this, completely different from the general run of generic sword-site postings. Hope there is more along these lines!

Excellent! Not to sound to cliché, but variety is the spice of life and these additions really add something to what is already an outstanding forum.

Thanks for the feedback, everybody. We've always had mission for a broad scope with this site, but haven't really been able to attack it succesfully. To do so requires a diverse set of contributors. Gordon Frye really came through this update and added a lot to this goal of ours. We want to keep doing this and pubilsh articles on other cultures and subject as well. We're trying hard to recruit people with knowledge of these diverse things to get articles out there for you all.

Cheers

I really appreciated the article on the transition from armored cavalry to pistoliers. This was a huge blank spot in my knowledge and it was great to read this handy article with sources cited. Very good work Gordon!

Thank you, Gentlemen, for all of the kind words! I look forward to discussing these things (and other bits of trivia and esoteric information) on the Boards!

Cheers!

Kudos to you, Nathan, and the myArmoury team for this week's update.

Gordon, Richard B. Neely, and Sean Flynt (and contributors)....my hat is off. These excellent articles serve as a truly informative next step in realizing myArmoury's full potential. 'Simply a great effort guys.
