Here are some good TS links that either I have
run across or else someone else in our group recommends.
Top Secret Resource Links
Nation of Riflemen - Pretty cool site. Check out some links at the
top of the homepage called "Gun Pics" and "Weekend Women". ESPECIALLY
- US Air Force link.
Airman - As the title of the site says, "A
magazine of America's Air Force. I'm sure the hard copy would have
Armament Systems - Just what it says it is!
- Selected companies, but some good ones. IMI, Glock, H&K, SIG,
Steyr, Walther to name a few.
World - Primarily features Russian weapons, but has a mix of
Technology -This link has all kinds of good stuff about different
weapons and weapons systems.
ATF - Alcohol,
Tobacco, & Firearms link.
- Home page of this firearm manufacturer.
Ten.com - It is what it says it is. Pretty cool site loaded with
Army - Home page of the British Army.
Royal Air Force - Home page of the British Royal Air Force. The
links page is probably the best one of the lot.
British Royal Navy - Home page of the British Royal Navy.
CIA - Central
Intelligence Agency link.
Colt - Home
page of the huge manufacturer of weapons.
Wesson - Home page of the other half of Smith & Wesson :)
Apparently now owned by CZ-USA.

time to explore.
Delta Force - Home page of the superlative special fighting force
of the United States.
DOJ - United
States Department of Justice home page.
- Federal Bureau of Investigation home page.
of American Scientists - A site recommended by one of the players.
FirearmsID.com - Interesting site that has a page
of links to weapons pictures. The links are to the site listed below
Security.org - Site recommended by one of the players.
& Ammo - This is the site of the magazine that was so much
inspiration to many of the guns designed in our game. UPDATE: As of 4/21/06, some information has
gone up on the Firearms Directory part of the site. As of this date
(2/24/05) The site seems to be in the early stages of development.
Could potentially be a HUGE resourse since there is a listing of an
item called "Firearms Directory". It says coming soon so when it does
arrive, it could be an invaluable resource.
& Koch - "When only the best will do. . . " to quote a TS
- Manufacturer's website. Some good pictures here also!
International Molybdenum Association.
Israeli Weapons - The other two Israeli sites that
were on this page have been removed. One is no more, the other is a
- This website is from the author of one of my favorite series of men's
adventure books, "They Call Me the Mercenary". Neat insight into an
Gun - Site that appears to be hosted in France. This site was down
for awhile but now appears to be back up at a slightly different web
address. Nifty site that seems to have some obscure weapons.
Long Mountain Outfitters, LLC - This interesting
little site has some pictures of weapons used in movies. Don't forget
to check out the tab at the top of the webpage called "Fun Photos".
Research Inc. - One of my favorite sites since it features one of
my favorite handguns! Turn up your speakers!
Firearms and Ammunition -This site has a lot of good pictures of
weapons. Probably one of the best sites out there for weapons.
- If you like women and guns then this is the site for you!
Nasog.net - A good site for
information on items ranging from ships, planes, weapons, etc. No
pictures but has the all important barrel length information on weapons
for use with the Gun Design rules.
(http://www.nasog.net/datasheets/index.htm). Site is no longer active.
Notebook of Modern Firearms - This site is a
pretty slick looking site that has lots of weapon pictures and
information. Site is designed for the roleplayer in mind.
NRA - Take
action to protect your Second Amendment rights!!
Firearms Museum - If you ever get to the Washington DC area, make
sure you head over to NRA headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia and visit
this museum. At the time of this writing, the admission price is right
(FREE!) and if you are a firearms fan, plan to spend a couple hours
The Best Firearms - Newer site we've discovered that has some
awesome pictures and movies of folks shooting weapons.
- Manufacturer's website. Pretty good in that it contains a section
where you can look at pictures of specific weapons.
Arms - This link has plenty of pictures of different weapons. Good
site but a little flaky at times.
Arms Illustrated - This link has lots of pictures but no
information about specific weapons. You need to know the country of
origin in order to find a specific weapon.
- This is an interesting/different site.
Central - Not to be confused with the other sniper website listed
This is a sweet link for the fans of the Mack Bolan books. For a little
while, there was a series that ran on the back covers of the books that
featured certain weapons systems. As far as I can tell, this link has
all of those.
(http://stonyland.stormy-night.org/stonyland/weapons.html). Site is no
Page - Cool up-to-date site with a ton of information to look over.
Gear - Cool website from the magazine with the same name.
The Box O' Truth - As it says on the homepage, "The purpose of the
Box is to test the penetration of various rounds."

THE Administrator, Merle Rasmussen, has come out
of retirement and has made some appearances!! He
attended and ran a previously unpublished TS module at GaryCon VI

convention. Merle is in the red shirt. Click on image to see a larger
In addition, there is a fantastic interview of
Mr. Rasmussen on a website called "Dead Games Society". The interview
is in audio form and is a bit over an hour in length but it is well
worth the time to listen to it if you are a hard-core Top Secret™ fan!
Here is the link to the interview, Episode #7: The
Rasmussen Debrief. During this interview Merle mentions that at the
Nexus Game Fair, he ran a mission called Operation: Machete and
that he also ran a prequel mission to Operation:Rendezvous Oasis.
This prequel mission had a working title of Operation: Evil Axis
but he changed the name to Operation: A Farewell to Arms. As
of July 2014, none of these additional missions has been published

sites. (w4creations.com/secureideasdir/tsrpg/). This site is now
