I have that movie in my mind tonight. Bob Lee Swagger is a character I can relate with. My favorite lines:

Bob Lee Swagger: Welcome to Tennessee, patron state of shootin' stuff.

Bob Lee Swagger: I don't really like the President much. Didn't like the one before that, much, either.
Colonel Isaac Johnson: You like the idea of the President, living in a free country. Do we allow America to be ruled by thugs?
Bob Lee Swagger: Sure, some years we do.

Bob Lee Swagger: I don't think you understand, these boys killed my dog

My favorite of the whole movie is when they go to see the old man....

"and they said Anna Nicole married for love....."

"Still got the shovel"

I forgot that one. That was when he was talking to "Mr. Rate", the late Levon Helm.

Another I like is "I'm just a peckerwood who lives in the hills with too many guns."

You should read the book it was taken from Point of Impact. I couldn't put it down. "You don't hunt Bob Lee he hunts you."

There is a whole series of books on the Swagger family. Started with Bobby Lee's Daddy Earl, then on to Bobby Lee. There actually was a Swagger from that area that Hunter based his book on. And I do believe that his name was Earl.

1993: Point of Impact
1994: Dirty White Boys
1996: Black Light
1998: Time To Hunt
2000: Hot Springs
2001: Pale Horse Coming
2003: Havana
2007: The 47th Samurai
2008: Night Of Thunder

Word of caution...don't expect the story and the movie to be the same. They are not. Both are good in their own right, but entirely different.
