Home Again, Gone Again

Arrived at home around 1 AM this morning. Today was the first day of school so after the kids were out the door, we actually slept in.

Tomorrow I leave for an event with Revision Eye Wear in Vermont. This includes a tour of the factory, face to face testimonials from soldiers and police officers that have had their eyes saved by Revision eye wear and a morning of firearms training from Max Michel.

On another note, Drema is contemplating how she can get back to Gunsite to take the 250 class from Il Ling New. We may wait until next fall and let the Gunwriter Assistant take the class with her. In the mean time, she will looking for a gun. I have a sneaking suspicion it will look something like a Colt Defender in 9mm and I know without a doubt she will want the XS Big Dot Sights.

Now I must go unpack, wash clothes and pack again.

    Do you actually get paid money for doing all this stuff you’ve been writing in this blog about? Who pays the airfare for all this flying around?

  2. gunwriter says:

    That is a very good question and one I should probably address in one or more posts.

    The short answer:

    The blog has several sponsors. They get their logo on this blog for a VERY small fee. As of now, the only sponsors I have are those that make products I would not hesitate to endorse. I do not get paid for what I write here.

    Most of the time but not all ways, airfare is covered by the companies that sponsor the various events.

    I make money by selling articles to magazines about what I do. I find something cool (product or experience) and query an editor with a story idea. I send text and images and the magazine sends me a check.

    I’ll elaborate on how this all works in a more detailed posts.

    Thanks Richard. My question wasn’t real clear. I didn’t really want to know about the money making side of the blog. I don’t figure there is much if anything there. It’s all the other stuff you’ve been writing about that I was curious about. Sure seems to be allot of coming and going and you’re making money to boot. What a gig!
