'Holding Fire' book examines gun ownership in America

Click here for the original audio and to read a book excerpt.

As a cowboy and rancher in Montana, Bryce Andrews carried and used guns. But inheriting a Smith and Wesson revolver caused him to question his gun ownership. He writes about that exploration in his 2023 book “Holding Fire: A Reckoning with the American West.”

It’s now out in paperback, and we revisit host Peter O’Dowd’s conversation with Andrews from last February.
