I have been offered eight pairs of tickets to give away to my readers, to attend "The Trick with the Gun" at the Thursday, November 19 at 6:30 p.m. screening in Toronto, Canada.  (I understand that there's also a Q&A with director Michael McNamara and subjects Scott Hammell and Christopher Gudgeon.)

Did you know that Scott is a four-time Guinness World Record holder?  I know he's got the record for "Highest Suspension Straight Jacket Escape."  Can anyone let me know what the other three are for?

Watch the trailer at  Markham Street Films YouTube channel.

If you don't want to leave tickets to chance, you can either purchase them at the cinema box office, or have a look at this post in the Browser's Den of Magic Facebook group:
