My Personal Top 10 Most Iconic Firearms

It all started with a simple discussion with a group of friends and it slowly turned into a heated debate in way one gun was better than the other. In this article I talk about my personal Top 10 Favorite Most Iconic Guns ever to be produced and gives you reasons behind why I chose each gun.

The Gunfighter Brain
The Gunfighter Brain
