    Has anyone read Luara Browder's book?: Her Best Shot

    I'm curious about it. I think I might buy it just to see what she has to say.

    It does sound to me to be more a scholarly history of gun use by American women, with maybe little or no modern interest? Phil E

    I listened to the interview. She is definitely NOT a shooter. But I think I will buy it so I can see what is her spin on the subject. It would be good to stay informed of what is going on in the media regarding women and guns.

    Pro-gun...but not a shooter? It occurs to me that there are people in the world who specialize at turning their Master's Thesis into a career.


    Sounds like this book was her way of getting an invite onto the lecture and speakers' panel circuit. Don't laugh - she was on NPR, wasn't she? Catchy title that allows her to tap the leftist "Womens' Studies" and right-wing gun nut markets with one swoop.



    Intriguing...but sorry. I don't pay $30 to read somebody's term paper.



    Devi - before you buy, might I suggest that the local Borders and Barnes & Noble have some _very_, ahem, comfortable chairs? They have saved me from several potentially expensive mistakes. And you can have a hazelnut latte while you peruse.

    I have a friend who is an NRA member, but who owns no guns. He just got miffed the day Clinton signed the '94 semi-auto ban and joined up.
