Firearm Favorites by Chuck Hawks


January 27, 2003, 09:27 PM
I don't know who Chuck Hawks is, but researching a thread comparing the .223 to the .243, I came across his web site. One of the pages was named Firearm Favorites, and I found myself basically agreeing with Chuck. So much so, that I thought I would share with my fellow Highroaders:

But of course, I imagine, most of the experienced TFL and THR folks have already seen this.

Chuck Hawk's websight offers in-depth analysis of a great many rifle cartridges. I rely on it extensively. He's extremely knowledgable, and his information is far from a mere re-hash of the standard "Cartridges of the World." He's also always adding information. I always wondered if he was a member of TFL.

Hale and well met, sir!

I was referred to your website by a fellow member of the firearms discussion forum that I regard as the best to be found on the Web:

I wandered around your informational and editorial pages, and I was impressed at the well-considered, clearly expressed material. However, when I looked over your firearms links, I found no references to an obvious discusion board. Since you do have a link to one of our own, the much respected Oleg Volk, I would like to be the first to extend you an invitation to join us on the forum.

The High Road was created by Oleg as a result of the closure of at the first of the year. The Firing Line was widely regarded as the standard against which other forums should be judged, and it's closure would have left a gaping hole in the gun-owning Internet community. Fortunately Oleg was able to enlist some assistance and open The High Road, and a significant portion of The Firing Line's membership are able to continue to benefit from the high standards of behavior and information exchange that we enjoyed before.

Come and share/discuss your opinions with a group of equally articulate, like-minded folks who regard politeness and good manners to be a priority, rather than a burden. From what I've seen on your site, I believe you would enjoy the quality of the conversation we have at The High Road, and I think you have a lot to contribute as well.

I hope to see you there!


Colin Fisher, known at The High Road as Hand_Rifle_Guy.

I hope he takes me up on it. He's got a great site, and displays a lot of open-minded, respectable viewpoints. He would be an asset to our community.

He seems to be a very knowledgable and sensible shooter. I'm sure we would all welcome his experience and opinions but he has his own website. I don't get the idea that he's much into the tactical or military side of shooting as much as hunting and our forum is certainly a bit heavy on the tactical/military aspects as was TheFiringLine.

I would certainly encourage everyone on this forum to take a gander over at his website, read up on his opinions on many topics and retain that information. Like I said, lots of very 'sensible' advice.
