Friends with Guns

I posted a message on my Facebook page asking which of my friends who also happen to be gun-owners would be willing to let me photograph them. Out of 195 friends I got one response. This is my Facebook friend Ben Kramer. He is also my friend in real life. I wanted to get a glimpse of what it is like to own a gun. I hadn’t had my hands on a firearm in over a decade. I hadn’t seen my friend Ben in over 3 years. So in the name of friendship and photojournalism we arranged to meet here at the Summit County Shooting Range in Dillon, Colorado.
