"This DVD set is the most impressive, organized and well done collection of the birth of the gun and it's evolution that I've ever run across. You'll enjoy the hours of factual documentary style information about the gun and it's history, without tiring. You'll find yourself looking forward to sitting down to watch the next DVD. This is very well done, both factually and entertainingly. This set is a treasure for anyone who is a gun enthusiast of any degree. This is one of my most prized additions to my library. Get this, you will be very pleased."
Excellent History and Entertainment

"I fell in love with this History Channel program several years ago, when I would catch it on television. Now, I am proud to say that I own this collection. The historical information surrounding the history of each weapon is both reliable and entertaining. The narration is superb, clearly audible and pleasing to the ear. After watching most of the episodes in this collection, I have noticed that the show does not necessarily glamorize firearms, but gives a fair assessment of their historical significance and place in time. It is a great collection both for its entertainment value as well as its informational value.

The packaging is also nice, with all of the discs in individual cases, two discs per case. The menus on each disc are easy to navigate, allowing the viewer to select clearly identifiable segments of each particular show. For any fan of history, firearms, or both, this collection is a must."
Great reference to a great series.

"I wish they would make more of these shows. They were very informative and entertaining to watch. As a collector, I really like the background and history on the designers, engineering, politics, companies, and work events related to each subject. I am glad that I can watch there whenever I want now. There is too much info to remember it all."
