You've got to see this...

If you write thrillers or mysteries and include gunfire, check this out: Corner Shot: Who Says Bullets Don’t Bend?

I've posted about Lee Lofland before. He's a former detective who literally wrote the book on writing accurate detective fiction. The gun featured here will definitely makes it's way into the genre and onto TV - so GET AHEAD OF THE GAME and check it out!

Important side note: I am not a gun enthusiast. I have never fired a gun, nor do I advocate personal gun ownership. I am posting this solely as a resource for mystery/suspense writers.


  1. Thanks for the link, Michele! I'm checking it out.

    Mystery Writing is Murder

  2. I'm reminded of the movie Wanted with Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman. The twist here was they had the ability to do special things like bend space so bullets could move around objects to find their targets. I wonder if this is a case of fiction predeeding reality.

  3. Thanks for mentioning the blog, Michele.

    So how do you really feel about guns... :)

  4. I thought of Wanted, too! I saw it three times in the theater b/c of the adrenaline rush.

    Anytime, Lee. Big fan.
    And I don't hate guns, I just felt the need to clarify for some reason. Maybe it's the mother in me. Trust me, I'm not so gentle in my fiction!


  5. Ohhh, I've seen this in action (on TV)... Military channel, I think, did a special... most impressive.

  6. Glad to have you, Jim! The Military Channel and the like are great places to find ideas for books...Hope to see more comments from you. Welcome!
