Believe it or not, this wasn't due to massive research, it's because the guy that created the series is a HUGE gun and car enthusiast and he wanted to make a series that was a love letter to his hobby, which is what this anime basically was.
So it wasn't like the guy went out of his way to research to make this anime, he already had all this knowledge prior to creating it.
This series is kind of like the American Psycho of anime. You think it's about two girls with guns having adventures but really it's the creator using the show as a medium to express his real passion.
However, Gunsmith Cats is a spinoff of another Anime called Riding Bean, which focuses on the character Bean Bandit. Bean is a side character that works alongside Rally Vincent in Gunsmith Cats on rare occasions. In Riding Bean it's the exact opposite, where Bean is the main character and Rally is just a side character that occasionally shows up to help him.Riding Bean (1989 OVA) English Dub
In the original Rally was a blonde. Consider this kind of like a prequel to Gunsmith Cats, only it's not a prequel because it came first.
