    Whether it's for reloading, or data-entry (specialized database for keeping track of a gun's details and provenance), or simulation (the NRA PlayStation2 game is impressive to me), I'm curious about some of the options out there.

    The software that Lee sells with handloading data etc. looks good; I wonder if it will run under WINE (which lets one run some, but not all, Windows programs under Linux). If it's not heavy on 3D graphics and such, the odds are pretty good, actually.

    I use a *FREE* program called GunSafe to keep firearms info around. Runs without needing installed so I just have it on a memory drive.

    Grab it below

    http://somanyroads.org/gunsafe/

    Heres one of the screens, notice the tabs across the top. This program almost does it all.....almost.

    Thanks for the heads up on Gunsafe AK. I'm gonna try it. I hope I can run it off of a flash drive so that the info isn't on the computer.

    Good stuff aaronkelly. I've been meaning to do some cataloging of my stuff. I'll give that a shot.

    It runs on Vista if anyone is curious.

    I've used NM Gun Collector for over a year now.

    http://nmcollector.net/nmguncollector/

    It's excellent. It's particularly useful to separate out C&R guns from other guns for the bound book. Information is easy to put on CD for a lock/safe box.

    Very intuitive. I have a routine of entering all the info with each acquisition as soon as I get it w/photos. That info is encrypted and stored in several places so should disaster strike, I still have a version and the info.

    For less than a tank of gas, it's well worth it for an easy way to keep up with your firearms and related stuff.
