Home of the brave...little toaster

Now this was a fun assignment.

A few weeks ago I got a call from Bloomberg to photograph a toaster. Not your typical assignment, I know, but this wan't your typical toaster. 

The bagel burner in question belonged to Nita Tune of Gardnerville, Nev. And, get this, it toasts a National Rifle Association (NRA) logo onto the bread. 

Tune won the appliance at an NRA fundraiser in California.

After laughing with my editor, I bought a loaf of fresh bread and drove south. Tune welcomed me into her kitchen where—for about an hour—we made toast.

Here's a few I liked.
