Need a Book Title

I finally have a publisher for the book on early gunsmithing.  They want it recast as a history of American gun culture; then and now.  No problem.

I need a catchy title for what will be a popularly targeted book.  The book explores the evidence of America's gun culture through thew Mexican War; evidence of early gunsmithing and gun making and how the industry changed the world.

Suggestions for titles that would force you to buy?

Well, your object is to sell books right? What better way than with a catchy title!

The Making of the American Gun

Although this would also make a good subtitle under Lock, Stock, and Barrel
