New Website Features Big Firearms Database, a new website for gun enthusiasts, launched this week. The new site is thin on content at this stage, but it has the potential to be an interesting resource. GunUp’s home page features a “Gun of the Day”, plus posts from popular blogs such as Gunnuts and Guns, Holsters, and Gear.

Currently, the main attraction of is a huge, searchable database of pistols, rifles, and shotguns. On the site’s Research page, you’ll find photos and specs for thousands of firearms. You can search by manufacturer, caliber, action type, price, weight, and barrel length.

If you’re shopping for a handgun, shotgun, or factory rifle, this can be a real time-saver. Using the pull-down search menus, in a matter of seconds we located data for the Savage 6.5-284 F-Class rifle. That was impressive. However, the choice of calibers needs to be expanded. There is no entry for 6mmBR, or 6.5 Grendel, for example. And you won’t find any listings for boutique rifle-makers such as Cooper Firearms, or even McMillan.

But if you’re looking for a mainstream caliber from a big-name manufacturer such as Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, Ruger and Savage, you’ll find the database very useful. With just a couple clicks you can comparison shop among thousands of different firearms. website

Enhanced Features for Registered Members invites readers to register. This gives readers access to “real-time” gun pricing, and the enhanced “Gunfinder” search tools. In addition, members can participate in discussions about various guns, or follow site updates via Twitter and Facebook. With so many gun forums already on the internet, we question the need for yet another venue to discuss “9mm vs. .45acp” ad nauseum, but we still think could be a popular site in the future. It has a sophisticated “back-end” database that allows the reader to access huge amounts of information quickly, and it’s nice to see highlights of multiple blogs collected in one location.
