Gunwriter’s Office

What does a gunwriter’s office look like on a Saturday morning – after a week of shooting, photographing and beating on a keyboard? I can’t speak for others – I’ve only been in John Barsness’ and Finn Aagaard’s office. And, while there are some similarities, mine is without question the messiest!

So, guess what I’m doing today? Cleaning and organizing, at least until I stumble across something in here that distracts me. Like the new Limited Edition Remington 700 Anniversary rifle in 7mm Magnum, or the new Savage Lady Hunter, or the new in the box Browning HiPower, or the Daniel Defense DDM4V1 LW. . . . I doubt I’ll get any cleaning or organizing done. My office will probably look worse than this on Monday.

    Looks like a terrorist sleeper cell or survivalist office. Better watch out you are probably on one of those lists somewhere. Actually it looks organized to me, I was expecting a lot worse.

    Actually, your office looks better-organized than my study. With all that ammunition around though, I would seriously consider some sort of fire suppression system, like sprinklers, just in case. It could get really exciting and noisy otherwise. I admire the proximity of your desk with the loading bench. Blessings.

    Lol, come to my house. That’s clean, I am jealous that your reloading bench is readily accessible and all that ammo…
