Home on the Range: Audio Profile

 

Sean Work / Framed by WDET

If you’ve never fired a gun before, everyone at Double Action will tell you, “You really should.” People here at the part gun shop, part indoor shooting range in Madison Heights say that just like there isn’t one kind of firearm or shooting sport, there isn’t one kind of person who uses guns.
