Book About Gun Culture

I started to read this book about 3 years ago. It's a book about the gun culture in America. I saw the book on either American Rifleman TV or Guns and Ammo TV.

 

The book followed a few different characters. I remember near the begining there was a military weapons "show" and they were shotting off new guns. Then one of the other stories followed a man taking his son in to get his first gun. 

 

I have no clue as to what the book was called. I do know it was a HUGE book. I think it had close to 1000 pages. It was about 3 or 4 inches thick. The author has never written anything else, that I'm aware of. The author is havily involved in the gun culture. I know he now makes and sells bullets, but I'm not sure if he did that when he wrote the book.

 

The book wasn't new either. I want to say it was from the early nineties but it could be much older than that. I also think there was a woman wearing red on the cover.

 

 I know my details are a little sketchy, thus why I haven't been able to find the book on my own. It's a shot in the dark, but I'm hopefull someone knows what I'm talking about.

Re: Book About Gun Culture

I've come across that one also. I want to finish the other one because it was a pretty decent book, but I had to return it to the library before I got a chance to finish it.

 

Thank you for your response.
