The Black Arrow: A Tale of the Resistance- Vin Suprynowicz


Unintended Consequences- John Ross


The Ballad of Carl Drega- Vin Suprynowicz


Send In The Waco Killers: Essays on the Freedom Movement, 1993-1998- Vin Suprynowicz

Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you.

I just finished Unintended Consequences and Send in the Waco Killers and The Black Arrow.

UC was different than expected. Waco just got me mad, but wish it had more references. Black Arrow was way different and more bloody than expected.

I've read UC by JR. Excellent read.

Gives you a step by step rendition of how the slippery slope that we are on happened. When you read the book it is actually kind of scary. You'll also become somewhat of an expert on gunlaw history when you read the book and realize how the second amendment has been used, abused, and trashed by those that oppose it.

+1 to all

If you have not read Enemies Foreign and Domestic you might add that to the order. Hell of a book.

+1 for UC I stole someone else's copy and have read it 4 times. I think this should put me on every fed list available.

I've read all of them. Suprynowicz's columns are IMHO excellent. A few are focused on extremely local Las Vegas issues, but most are about national issues. He also goes into rant mode every now and then, doing little more than tearing a new asshole for some left-wing weenie who made the mistake of sending him a letter opposing something he wrote in an earlier column.

Black Arrow is so-so. Very cartoonish. It's worth a read if you like that sort of thing, but you'd probably be better off checking it out of your local library.

Unintended Consequences is, of course, a classic among gun nuts, and deservedly so. The only negative, IMHO, is that the sex scenes make it inappropriate as a gift for some of my more religious friends.

ETA: if anyone has a way to get a digital copy of UC, I'd appreciate a link, too. I've been wanting to reread a few parts of it but my copies are in storage.

read "unintended consequences". comes from the tom clancy school of fiction where the hero never messes his har up and never misses and the bad guys are oily greasy cretins who scurry in the shadows and have bo. the first 2/3 of the book are also historical drivel. they don't get into the actual story until real real late in the book.

you know, i actually put a copy out into the arf.com pop to pass around. dunno whatever happened to it...

Yes, all of them

Best is Unitended Consequences. Some people get bored by al lthe setup and gun culture, but I loved it.

2nd is Black Arrow, it's a fictional book (well, maybe not soon) and it's a little odd in parts, but it's a page turner, i was up til 2am one night reading it.

the other 2 are essays, they are real life, they are well written and you will be pissed reading it. I love giving them to my friends to get them upset too
Order one of those and if you like it order the other one.

definately buy UC.
Also, there is Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Mathew Bracken, I would put that one #2 ahead fo Black Arrow.
