The Shootist/Blog

Self-defense, guns, firearms politics, the occasional rant or raving—it’s all here on Gordon’s popular blog.  When a magazine’s space doesn’t allow an in-depth review of a firearm, or someone does something great with a gun, or a politician needs a hammering over gun rights, read it here on The Shootist.

Ladies Handgun Class is covered in the "WON"

I emailed Barb Baird, a good friend and outdoor writer, about the ladies class on Saturday.

She liked the idea so much, she put in in her online magazine (called an “E-zine”) which is called WON...

Women’s Outdoor News.

Here’s the link...she’ll post more about it in another week or two, but here’s the first posting:

This column entitled 'Three Men you gotta meet.

America's First  Freedom is a major monthly publication of the

National Rifle Association.  With a circulation of approximately one

million, it is sent to members who are more interested in gun politics

Lt. Col.  Robert K. Brown (retired) is the publisher of Soldier of Fortune magazine.


Bob read Gordon’s book, “The Great New Orleans Gun Grab” (with Todd Masson) and asked Gordon to write an article for his magazine speculating on the actions of any police department after a civil disturbance or emergency.  Col. Brown wanted to know if the actions of the NOPD and civil authorities were a result of the culture and environment of New Orleans, or if the same would occur in other cities under the same circumstances.
