When I get an idea for a book, something appeals to me, it’s usually a character. I’ll see a picture of a female marshal in front of the courthouse in Miami and she’s got a shotgun on her hip and it goes up on an angle. And she’s good-looking. And I say, ‘I’ve got to use her.’
I remember one of them – it was a 1941 black Ford. As it went by very slow, a guy leaned out with a shotgun, keeping a bead on us all the time, and we just had to walk slowly and wait for him to kill us… They didn’t kill us, but they didn’t end it, either.
I consider myself to have been the bridge between the shotgun and the binoculars in bird watching. Before I came along, the primary way to observe birds was to shoot them and stuff them.

Programmers have been wandering out and shooting a shotgun into the night sky and hoping they hit something, and I end up paying $150 for channels full of nothing I want to watch.
My cousin cleaned out a shotgun for me and let me carry it around the house, because he said, ‘Anybody who knows anything about guns is going to know in a second if someone has held a gun before.’ I didn’t want to be that person. I wanted to be practiced.
Well, I’m about as tall as a shotgun, and just as noisy.
Guys think that the military associations of camo are going to make them look tough, as if they might just break out a shotgun and take down a passing duck at any given moment. I’m not so sure.
All those car battles with my brother Ned were excellent training. Even now, on the set, if we’re getting into a vehicle, I’ll yell ‘shotgun’ first. Thus forcing Steve Martin into the back of the car.

In Florida, to buy a gun, you do not need a permit, you do not need a gun license, and once you buy it, you do not need to register it. You do not need a permit to carry a concealed rifle or shotgun. You can buy as many guns as you want at one time.
We have a shotgun we inherited from my father-in-law, a paranoid Englishman living in Texas. I have a .22 Marlin rifle, similar to the one Annie Oakley had, and my husband has a .357 Magnum pistol.
