When ruthless anti-gun activists pick up guns, who will they shoot first?

January 21, 2019

My satirical novel on US gun culture, TARGET 91, has just been published by Penmore Press

I became interested in the maths of guns when trying to work out why “Dirty” Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) in the film 

carries a Smith & Wesson Model 29,  .44 Magnum.

What’s this .44?

The caliber of guns in the USA is the diameter of the bullet measured in decimalised inches.

.44 = .44 inch

Why write satire on such a serious topic?

Because HUMOUR HAS THE POWER TO TAKE ILLOGICAL THINKING TO ITS LOGICAL CONCLUSION.

TARGET 91 includes illogical and often hilarious thinking on both sides of this debate.

More at Penmore Press here.

You’ll find TARGET 91 print copy & ebook on AMAZON  USA, UK and finally now on AMAZON AUS. (ebook to follow).

Also KOBOSMASHWORDS and Barnes&Noble NOOK and Apple iBook.
