There was a recent thread on Facebook in a group run by Seton Hill University college friends where some questions about firearms recently came up. Before that thread ever posted, I was already playing around with the idea of doing a multi-post series on guns and writing. I've done a blog post before on guns, but it was geared more toward self-defense rather than writing. My intent with this series would be to give authors a basic course on firearms, their operation, use, and other information based around the senses with the hopes that it would help said authors create realistic scenes involving firearms. Nothing beats hands on training, but this might help in a pinch. However, this is a larger endeavor, so before I start into this project I would like to know if this is something you'd like? I would run a blog post on each of the following: revolvers, semi-automatic pistols, shotguns, bolt action rifles, and semi-automatic rifles. Each post would involve some basic terminology, common calibers and what they mean, different uses for each type of weapon, and perhaps even a video of said weapon's operation (maybe even fire it at something as well). What do you think? Vote below please.
