    DescriptionIn 'American Gun', the deadliest sniper in US history tracks down and shoots the most important American firearms, from a flintlock rifle to a Colt revolver to the latest high-tech weapon he used as a Navy SEAL. Chris Kyle uses these guns as a window on US history, making the sweeping argument that the American story has been tied to and shaped by the gun.
