    He's pretty sharp and has a way of condensing things so that the information provided is very practical. As opposed to some who are clearly more interested in how important/intelligent their writing makes them sound.

    He's also actually a shooter - I know him. Nice guy.

    I suspect that more than a few "gun writers" are writers first, and gun people second.

    I think it's like that with a lot of things. There are more than a few "automotive journalists" who have tried club racing and weren't competitive, yet the performance numbers they can get out of a car get published.

    It has to be tough to be a real Gun Writer...

    From what I've seen some "Gun Writers" are:

    Add Writers-1st
    Gun Industry Writers-2nd
    Gun Writers-3rd

    It has to be tough to be a real "Gun Writer" in this day and age. Most everything that is worth writing about has already been done in the last 60-80 years (I think).


    Respectfully,
