Try reading HANDGUNS magazine and AMERICAN HANDGUNNER magazine on a plane
ride...that'll getcha some odd looks.
Speaking of which, I was disappointed to see so many gun-related errors in
GUN WORK by David Schow. As common as they are in crime/thriller/adventure
fiction, I typically let that stuff roll off with a shrug (and a gentle
eyeroll), but in a book that purports to be so strongly focused on guns and
their design/performance/etc., it was puzzling to see several blatant errors
that simple research would have corrected. I give Schow credit for
trying...but he fell short in the end. The book itself? Well, it was
okay...kinda slow in the second one-third of the tale.
