Just received the book from the Military Bookclub. I must say, the book is excellent.

The author and photographer, Kyle Cassidy, traveled across the state to take a portrait of a gun/and his his family, and ask them one question:
"Why do you own a gun?"
There is not a political message pushed by the author what so ever, just that one question, and their answer.

The portraits are excellent, portraying a wide scope of different people, who own an amazing variety of firearms. Anything from your grand pappies .22 bolt action, to machine guns. Elderly people, young people, families, anyone and everyone owning anything from .22's to machine guns. Very interesting.

A must read for anyone (pro and anti) who feels they have an "idea" of what the average gun owner looks like. Anyone who wants to hold an anti-gun position should (among other things, learn about guns, and maybe even read the gun laws!) read the book.

I have nearly 30, and still want more.

Should have another within a week or two, a Type 99 Arisaka. A WWII Japanese rifle.
I'll be ordering another 1891/30 Mosin Nagant (WWII Soviet rifle) and a M24/47 Mauser (WWII Yugoslavian rifle) sometime next month. Hopefully doing the first half.

I think I'll have 28. Maybe 29. I lost count.

In May I'll spend my tax rebate (should be around $300 or more) on a WWII German Mauser, all markings intact., for about $260.
