- KurzbeschreibungWhat is the nature of firearm ownership and gun club <br>activity in Australia? This book explores cultural <br>aspects of consumer behaviour in Australian target <br>shooting clubs. It is the culmination of nine years <br>ethnographic research.<br>Three themes are explored; firstly, the <br>intrapersonal relationships between shooters and <br>guns, secondly, the interpersonal relationships between members of the shooting fraternity, and <br>thirdly the perceptions and attitudes of shooters <br>vis-à-vis the larger community. Analysis of the data <br>not only confirmed the intuitive expectation that <br>shooters love their guns, but revealed a rich <br>extended web of meaning and possibilities afforded <br>by firearm possession and usage.<br>The inexorable evolution against shooting as a <br>valued and legitimate recreational pastime is also <br>documented along with the implications of this on <br>fraternity attitudes. While shooters are well aware <br>they are becoming more anachronistic and alienated <br>over time they are largely powerless to influence <br>this process, which in turn does not bode well for <br>the future of the sport.
