A Primer on Primers
Behold the primer—like Rodney Dangerfield, the simple primer does not get the respect it deserves, but the primer is the most critical component of metallic cartridges or shotshells, for it is the primer that ignites the powder charge that sends the bullet or pellets toward their targets.
Women and Firearms - The More the Better
There are myriad reasons why more and more American women are demonstrating increased interest in firearms, with perhaps the most urgent reason being the dramatic increase in civil unrest, prolonged urban rioting and general lawlessness. Increasingly, women are participating in greater numbers in the shooting sports, particularly the shotgun sports.
223 vs 5.56
The answer to the above question is a resounding NO, though far too many shooters are confused over the difference. The parent cartridge of the.223 Remington is the .222 Remington introduced in 1950 as a completely new rimless center-fire cartridge in .22 caliber.
THE “NON-TOXIC” SHOT CONTROVERSY
Lead is a heavy, malleable, durable elemental metal with a low melting point actively used by humans for thousands of years: It is both boon and bane to humankind. Like other metallic elements, lead has properties that, in excess, can cause physiological and neurological damage (plumbism) to humans and other mammals. There is scientific evidence that ancient Romans suffered neurological injury by drinking water and wine containing lead solutions leached out of pipes and vessels.
The Origins of the Second Amendment
Ponder the meaning and origin of these words: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Though it has been criticized for poor syntax, this straightforward statement has generated millions of words in defense of, ridicule of, and opposition to the premise that people of a free State have the right to own firearms. We shall examine this statement closely.
Blog is back up! So lets start... at the beginning!
Jean Samuel Pauly Was an innovator in the early decades of the 19thCentury whose seminal contributions to firearms and ammunition developments are largely unknown and unheralded. But in truth, we salute Pauly every time we fire a cartridge, and had another of his innovations come to earlier fruition, we might today be using a vastly different ammunition ignition system.
Hello! My first blog post ever! (Ernie Shipman - Founder/Retired)
What to write? How to begin? What could I have to say that anyone would want to hear?
So… since this is a blog from RenArms, let’s start at the beginning of how I, Ernie Shipman, the owner, became interested in firearms and shooting in the first place:
Fantasy vs Reality
How many times have you heard this one: “The BEST gun for you is X.” This statement is usually made after you ask “I need a gun for protection, what should I get?” That seemingly simple question is a Pandora’s box which can lead to arguments and broken friendships. (Ask me how I know)

Just wanted to give a shout out to Jay who does the cerakote and custom work in the back. He was very professional and able to do exactly what I want with my firearm. Jay was super friendly, communicated well via email and my experience in his area of the shop was great. Everyone was friendly and courteous in the main area as well. I've found my gun shop in NH. Bravo Zulu
Very welcoming. I love that the firearms are available to pickup and handle without needing an employee right there to hand them to you.
I was looking everywhere for a difficult to find item. I found this shop online and submitted an inquiry. Customer service goes a long way and Renaissance Firearms goes above and beyond. Devon responded the same day with details on how to acquire. 20% down on a pre-order and less than a week later, it’s in. AMAZING and SUPERB customer service. Renaissance Firearms gained a lifelong customer. Thanks Again!
Great prices given the circumstances in today's world. The staff has been great at answering any questions, and has never looked down on me for not knowing everything about firearms, plus they're not helicopter salesmen/women when you're looking at a firearm, so you don't feel pressured. All in all, I've had nothing but great experiences here.
