Professor David Yamane has gotten permission to publish several of the essays from his Sociology of Guns seminar. They are mostly from people who had never fired or even held a gun in their lives. The person who had fired a gun still had somewhat limited experience.

  1. Student Range Visit Reflection: Fear to Fun
  2. Student Range Visit Reflection: Fear of the Unknown
  3. Student Range Visit Reflection #3: A Strange Mixture of Emotions
  4. Student Range Visit Reflection #4: Becoming More Comfortable Around Firearms
