OpenSoar Handgun Wizard Tutorial


Handgun Wizard is just about the only thing on the site at the moment. Brand new site in general. I created the handgun wizard, primarily to give folks who are looking for a new handgun especially brand new shoppers, those who have never bought one before potentially a single source of information to get them started with their buying experience. Now at the time of this video, right now…this app is basically in beta phase, alpha really. I haven’t truly vetted it. I’ve run it through a few browsers and had some friends and family take it for a spin and apparently that’s good enough for me to just set it loose on the general public So lucky you. Anyway, there are a bunch of features that I’ve held out on including an initial release
I’ll Additionally, I plan on adding a couple more handguns Sorry, a couple more HUNDRED handguns within the next few months I am also making a little more
mobile-friendly right now I don’t work on a mobile
device but it’s not So bear with me on this folks. I’ll get this thing humming here soon It’s a living breathing thing. We’re going to go ahead and get started is right now Starting off, I’m going to go with some selfish motives, and ask you to share this with your with
your friends if you like it share it here you don’t like it to your
friends who don’t like You can also follow OpenSoar on Twitter, Facebook and RSS. Go ahead and do that too please. Up at the top menu here, we have the companion guide, which is a 12,000 Word
document I wrote just to help new shoppers kind of
understand what some these filters mean, like what the different, the different trigger actions mean in terms of how that coincides with their shooting experience just about anything you have a question
on here or the true significance of it, the companion
guide answers that The help video is actually this video that we’re shooting right now, which should go ahead and blow your mind a little bit Contact…self explanatory, but basically if you…like I said, this is probably going to be pretty buggy this is actually my first attempt at
programming anything, so have fun. If you find some bugs, or you want new features added, or new guns added or you think a gun shouldn’t be on there, or
you wanna tell me I suck, or you wanna tell me I’m great, hit me up here at contact. Frequently Asked Questions. Everybody who uses the Internet or is alive should know what that means And “Thanks”. Right off the bat, I’m just gonna thank a few folks who were my opinion made
this possible Give a shout out to DataTables.net, Genitron.com, Backwoods Guns, my local gun store and Code Academy. Thank you folks. We’re gonna jump down to the meat and potatoes of this web application, and that is the table. I’m going to go ahead and just go through these columns right now you can I got about 540 different models of handguns Starting off with the model column The make column–basically who made the gun, which is also found in the model column A little redundancy, but it helps navigate quicker, or more quickly rather sorry, ok. You have the type between semi-automatic, or auto-loader or however you want to say it versus revolver, or wheelgun. Calibers You can sort by calibers. And by the way, yes, you can sort by columns. Trigger actions in addition to single action only double action only, double action single action, I also added striker fired in there I know it somewhat debated on whether or
not that’s really a trigger action, but for the sake of simplicity I just lumped it all in there. I give a pretty detailed explanation on why I did that in the companion guide. If you want to know what that means, or why you think I’m an idiot for doing that, or whatever the case may be, read that first before contacting me and telling me I suck please. The capacity also again pretty self-explanatory. If you see the plus one designation that means the potential for a gun to be held pardon me, for the cartridge to be held in the chamber. We’re going to see that primarily on semi-autos Overall length barrel length weight of the gun unloaded MSRP the Suggested Retail Value the the used price estimated and in the the overall the overall column is completely relative, in fact when you first pull this up, the overall column is going to say “NaN”, and that is all null values, and that’s because this “Determine Overall Rank Column” tool, sub tool, has not been run yet. It’s going to be all zeroes when you come to the site for the first time and what this does is that you can choose
and these these use four primary attributes you can choose what are most important. So if you want a powerful man stopping personal defense pistol you might want to put a hundred in there. I’m going to put a hundred. Capacity personally, I don’t really care too much about what it will hold if you do carry for more than five got
two other again concealment are how easy it is to either Yunnan by the way good qualities
tooltips at any time you know you just a quick explanation
what that means are in recall and that’s an estimated are felt recall lot of things going to require all are or in IMAX so way to the payroll or so I the cartridge
that in there’s a whole lotta girls enter
this is really just to be used as a guideline it’s not our it’s not gospel I mean a lot of it
depends on on your hand your hand itself and that’s obviously
going difficult to measure remotely here so to say that what it is
you put all these values and their it calculated its gonna on-the-fly
determine what the overall callers you sort by the overall ministers give
you a general idea what guns might be best for you I’m me to do or did you know you’re so yes
or no you know i IR Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan to pretty sweet dunno 554 school awesome arm now I want to do our or or or using or yes I want to sort through some list of 10 what’s that
old arm lets them looking for a Glock so I can
use the search function here and it it filters very
quickly as the typings general primary filter

is used to 224 I wanna show more than 10 entries I
can united to use up to 100 at a time scroll

sweet perot for NHK the type that and again in serious cases
recent ones might my table here no rate with the overall USP Compact tackle for instance 45 as an IT arm and yeah apologize or really slow
connection right now so it takes a minute for these pictures for when you get there you could just hear a
form of that no power clear the surgeon backspace from there are a few more columns that
are included on the answers to the screen roles their
own sure a few at a time you can also add to all the percentiles
over Oregon attributes right relative to each
other you know whether arm whether or not they
