A big event has just occurred within the Source modding community. A classic mod from GoldSRC has just been updated and evolved into a Source beta release. I was personally a big fan of the original Firearms back in the day and have played the new release and can honestly say they kept true to the spirits and roots of what made Firearms so great.
While it is a Beta 1.0 release, it offers a wide variety of content and features. It of course has a few bugs, but for a Beta 1.0 release it's very solid.
Keep your eye on this.
Here is the press release from the Firearms Team:
