    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.
