The Pistol Place is one year old today!


On 7th October 2013, I put the first review on-line at the Pistol Place and wondered if anyone would read it. I was living in Thailand at the time and the rainy season heat was stifling. One year on and I’m living in Italy, it is notably less hot and the site receives over 5000 visitors and 12,000 views per month. So, many thanks to everyone who has read, commented on and written articles for the Pistol Place. It’s great to be able to share thoughts about our hobby and to communicate with so many passionate, knowledgeable and articulate people around the world. But I’d like to make it even better. And you can help!

I have created a simple survey to find out what people like, don’t like and want to see more of on the site. You can find it here. It’s very short (completing it takes less time than reloading your ASG CZ P-09, honest!), anonymous, you only have to answer the questions you want to and I promise not to tell your better half what you answered for the “How many replicas do you own?” question. Filling it in won’t win you a prize, but it will help to ensure more of what you like on the site, so please take a couple of minutes to complete it.

Of course, I’m also happy to hear from readers (the “Contact” section provides my email). Have you got a replica pistol you’d like to review? Let me know, and I’ll provide you with a template and any advice you may need to produce a review for the site. Disagree with one of the reviews here? Let me know – I’ll include a “Second opinion” section in any review if you think I have been unfair to your favourite. Would you like to see different types of article, or a different format for reviews? Let me know!

Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoy reading the articles on the site as much as I enjoy researching and writing them.

Happy shooting.
