Here is some great information here if you are new or seasoned shooter. Jerry Miculek is a good source of information when it comes to firearms.
A new Template option has been added to the ArmoryBook editors. Templates allow quick and consistent entering of notes, as well as ensure that no information is forgotten (using the Range and Maintenance boiler plates). Access the templates with the temple button in the upper left of the toolbar.
Clicking on the template button will display a list of available templates along with a description. Simply select the desired template. Pay close attention to the checkbox at the bottom of the list, if this is checked, the contents of the template will OVER RIGHT the contents. If you simply want to ADD the template contents to the current notes, remove the check mark and the temple contents will be inserted at the current cursor position.
Below are the current 7 system templates and a short description.
|Gun Information Template||Gun information block with gun value|
|Gun Value Table||Gun value information based on quality|
|Image and Title||One main image with a title and text that surround the image|
|Maintenance Information||Basic maintenance information|
|Range Information||Basic range trip information|
|Text and Table||A title with some text and a table|
|Two Columns||Two columns, each one with a title, and some text|
The ArmoryBook Home Screen is now configurable! You are in control of what information is displayed, making it easy to customize ArmoryBook to your needs. The Home Screen configuration can be accessed from the main System Settings option.
Two information panels four charts can be enabled/disabled.

|Maintenance Aging||Ammo Caliber Inventory|
|Ammo Inventory List||Caliber Breakdown|
|Guns Assigned Tags|
The Maintenance Aging Panel(new) is great to monitory total rounds fired, rounds fired since last maintenance, last maintenance type and time since last maintenance in words. This is a great tool for staying on top of gun maintenance and not waiting for the system to post a notification.
Below you can see three of the new charts: Caliber Breakdown, Collection Value and Country Breakdown. Clicking on a slice/bar of the chart will display a report or listing of the related guns.
The ability to add a User Notification has been added to ArmoryBook. Each User Notification is associated with a gun in the system. New notifications can be added from the Gun Screen using the button highlighted below.
The subject, date and message can be defined for the new notification. Links to any Contact or system Gun can be added to the message using the standard @contact or @gun ArmoryBook Mentions
When creating the notification it can be dated from the current date to any date in the future. Notifications can be used to setup reminders for a date in the future for any gun in the system.
Once a new notification has been entered it will appear the same as any System Notification on the Gun screen. The notifications can be changed and deleted using the standard notification edit and delete icons circled in the image below.
The new notification will also be displayed in the System Menu Notification list. Below both a User and Future notification is displayed. Note that User notifications are highlighted in a light blue and Future user notifications are a light purple color. These colors are used to easily distinguish the User notifications and Future notifications from the System notifications.
User notifications can be deleted using the . The User Notification delete screen has been simplified to only include a Remove and Cancel option.
A User Notification Filter has been added to the Main Menu Notification search bar. The User Notification filter will display ALL user notification, buth current and future.
The Future Notification filter will ONLY display user FUTRUE notifications. Both filter options allow for quick and easy identification of the various new user notifications.
