"Guns of Colt" are a brand of gun that even people who have never held a gun in their life know by name. Arguably the most important firearms manufacturer ever, the company founded by Samuel Colt put weapons in the hands of some of the most famous criminals and lawmen in history, changed the face of warfare, and was instrumental in the settling of the American West.
"The Gunslingers" tells of outlaws and renegades who took advantage of anything and anyone in the quest for gold and glory. Others were lawmen, striving to bring some semblance of order to the Wild West.
"Infamous Guns" is about the guns that have earned a place in history for their innovations — breakthrough weapons that advanced the science of firearms. There are others, however, that secured fame through their use — the guns that have killed presidents, started wars, and starred in legendary showdowns in frontier towns.
While some of the topics are more interesting to me than others, I tend to focus on some of the older historical aspect and therefore the DVDs that deal with the 19th century and earlier are some of my favorites. I still found the ones dealing with WWI and WWII very engaging.
I will have to admit that I had watched many of these when they were first aired on The History Channel, and so when I found out that they were coming as a complete collection, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them to see some of my favorites again and to view the ones that I had never watched. I was not disappointed. If you want an excellent study of this instrument that is known as the gun, then Tales Of The Gun: The Complete Collection will exceed your expectations.
