Firearms In Fiction (Podcast – Season 2, Ballistic Radio Episode 68 – June 29th, 2014)

“…What I imagined would be a series of books that were firearm literate, that were about the guns, that talked about how the guns were used (and) that portrayed the guns accurately or as accurately as possible…And I thought that if I got the guns right, I would have something that nobody else had.” – Stephen Hunter


Just as in high school, John sits alone for this episode as he interviews “New York Times” best selling author and Pulitzer Prize winner, Stephen Hunter. Mr Hunter talks about the development of Bob Lee Swagger, the main  character in many of his novels. He discusses his passion for writing, his love of firearms, and how the two combine to create very detailed and accurate works of fiction. As well, John asks Stephen’s opinion of  his book being turned into a Marky Mark movie, and we also get a quick update on the Knight’s Armament test rifle.
