Book Spotlight: Confessions of an Ex-Gun Dealer by: Ludwig Sawicki

Self publishing a book is exciting whether an author chooses to publish using a full service provider, like Outskirts Press, or they decide to “go it alone.” Because we understand the dedication that is required to write a quality book, we like to feature our top authors each week so that you can get to know a little bit more about them and their book. This week, we are featuring Ludwig Sawicki’s Confessions of an Ex-Gun Dealer.

In his latest book, self-publishing Outskirts Press author, Ludwig Sawicki’s lively, entertaining saga presents a view from both sides of the counter of the inner workings of a type of institution that hardly exists anymore in America: the truly personal gun store, its amiable proprietor and the collection of unforgettable patrons who felt so at home there.

There are seventy million gun owners in America. More than forty-five million of them use their firearms on a regular basis, either for recreation or for work. Unlike in Sawicki’s native England, where shooting is only a gentleman’s sport, in America every man can enjoy the sport of a gun. When Sawicki emigrated here and bought his first .22, he knew he was at home.

Confessions of an Ex-Gun Dealer also provides a unique entrepreneurial view of Sawicki’s business expertise, and he shares the hard won, out-of-classroom knowledge and experience he gleaned over the years to make his enterprise so successful. His advice is simple: Find your passion. Follow it. Live it.



Ludwig made his gun store a home, as well, to the many memorable characters — Uncle Al, Bull Frog Bob, Adolph the eccentric gunsmith, Charlie of blow-up doll fame – who not only bought their firearms there, but who also loved to spend countless hours, elbows on the counter, telling tales of their hunting trips in search of big game or of their safaris in Africa.
