Gusler M-Blasts Articles
This information defies being placed in a single category because these illustrated articles, published over several years, cover such a wide variety of topics.

What you see below is simply an index of the titles and dates of publication of the articles. As of the fall of 2010 all of these back issues of Muzzle Blasts were still available at very reasonable prices from the NMLRA offices in Friendship, Indiana.
