I’m doing major research on guns today: the firing of them, the cleaning of them, what the bullets look like.  Blanks vs. live ammunition.   I’m certain I am now on Homeland Security’s radar (if I wasn’t already). And I’m still not sure I’m going to get it all correct.  Good thing I have Brian Allison from Andrew Jackson’s The Hermitage in my pocket to check me for accuracy!
