West Virginia gun maker Melvin Forbes has changed the way shooters and hunters look at lightweight hunting rifles. We caught up with Forbes at his shop, and found his ideas on how to build Ultra Light Arms rifles go far beyond the number of rifles he has sold. Cowboy guns are fun to shoot, even if they really weren't around back then. One such gun is the .22 Long Rifle Uberti Silverboy, a new design with Old West flavor. We also look at the Sten Machine Carbine, the simple gun that armed British and Commonwealth troops during World War II and armed resistance fighters standing up to Nazi tyranny.
