We know.

We are working on it.


As some of you know, we have been wanting to move Weaponsman.com content to our webhost so that we can cover the upkeep costs. Unfortunately we have not gained root access or access to the domain host.

That said, we were able to make a backup of Weaponsman.com a while back. Not as good as having root FTP access, but it was still done.

I don’t know why Weaponsman.com is down right now. But I have been working on uploading the backup to a subdomain here. I’ve run into lots of issues which is why it isn’t up yet.

Part of the content backup with corrupt. We lost maybe a dozen images. That is unfortunate, but a relative small price to pay.

Current issue I am having is that I am running into all sorts of issues trying to import the sql database. phpMyAdmin keeps telling me “incorrect format parameter” and everything I have tried so far has not worked.

The data base is larger than the import tool allows, so I am having to have it done via tech support. I’ll keep you all updated.


  1. Thank you very much.
    Preserving Kevin’s work is important, perhaps not as important as the 5.56 timeline, but still important and very much appreciated.

  2. Add my name to the list of thanks.

    And I know multiple folks took backups after Kevin’s death—or claimed to anyway—so asking around may turn up copies of the pictures in question.

  3. Good onyer Gentlemen. Kevin’s work and memory should be preserved.

    There’s hardly a week goes by I don’t read some stupidity and think “I wonder what the Weaponsman would have to say about *that*”.

    • you are not the only one. Since its coming up on two years, I recently emailed Kevin’s brother to see how he was doing. He noted in the email that often he sees a news story and thinks to himself. “I wonder hwat Kevin would think

      You guys may be interested to know that Kevin’s brother does visit looserounds and reads your comments

  4. I don’t think you could call yourself a reader of weaponsman without wondering that. So many times I think “man I really wish I could get his take on this.”
