1. If you enjoyed this video, then you'll love the book I published in 2012 called God, Guns & Guts that inspired History Channel's God, Guns & Automobiles. I produced the TV show that stars Mark Muller who appears on the cover of the book and who also wrote the introduction. Erich 'Mancow' Muller is also featured in the book.

As a professional photographer, journalist and gun owner, I set out to do something that has never been done before. I spent four years traveling to every corner of America photographing proud, un-ashamed and legal gun owners in a raw, unbiased manner.

After meeting many uniquely different people, I can assure you that America is indeed made from a very special cloth woven from the fibers of God, guns & guts.

My experiences took me many places and I would be remiss to leave out the variety of flavors that make up the landscape, both urban and rural, that embrace these individuals, so I have included some of the landscape and location images to the book. I have also included many of the favorite quotes from the people I photographed to complete the vision of this project.

This book has been a labor of love and passion and I know that you will like it. We need to celebrate freedom, liberty and our right to bear arms in a fun and creative spirit.

Thank you very much.

Sincerely, Ben Philippi
