As a writer, have you ever received the comment, "It doesn't work like that,” whatever 'it' happens to be? Maybe the commenter was nice and found a way to send you a private message explaining the error and offered some advice for a fix. Or maybe the commenter wasn't so nice and wrote up a scathing summary of everything that was wrong in a public and glaring review. It takes courage to write a story and then publish it for the world to see, and most writers overcome doubt and fear constantly to share their stories with people. We research, because we want to get the details right. But guns or firearms (or whatever term you prefer) are very easy to get wrong. Especially if you have little to no experience with them. Enter Adam Richardson's "Crime-Fiction Guns" course. Adam does an excellent job of communicating the basics of firearms (ammunition, pistols, shotguns, and rifles) and how they work. He also covers how police use the evidence guns leave behind. He provides the information in a straightforward, no-nonsense series of lessons without condescending or talking down to us. All facts, no patronizing. If you have zero to little experience with firearms and want to know enough to get the basics right--like the difference between the terms primer, bolt, bore, or slide--this course is for you. Whether you write the kind of stories where guns are common but you have little to no experience with them or you’re writing your first story featuring a firearm, this course is well worth the investment. I discovered Adam Richardson through his interview with Joanna Penn on The Creative Penn Podcast, and I have followed his work since then. I have never been disappointed or dissatisfied with any information Adam presents, and this course is no exception.
