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.
This story is a part of Framed By WDET: Home on the Range, an audio-visual storytelling experience that depicts the sport and tradition of recreational shooting in Southeast Michigan. Storyteller Shelby Jouppi and photographer Sean Work have collaborated to present narratives of metro Detroit families and communities who come together through this beloved pastime.
By exploring the heritage, camaraderie and values of gun hobbyists, this exhibition gives a unique look into the diversity our region.
Opening Night: Wednesday, April 26 // 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This free event will include a photography exhibit along with audio stories, hands-on activities for kids, and adventure for the young at heart. All are welcome. RSVP here.
