Yes, but he's only "without a gun" in the same sense as he's without a car and without a suitcase. He simply travels light. As opposed to, say, Batman or MacGyver, who expressly choose to not use guns.

Speaking of the suitcase thing, was any one else a bit skeeved out by the fact that in the first book, Killing Floor:

Spoiler:
For about 4 days, Reacher was on the road, bumming around, walking for miles, in jail, and sleeping with the girl, all without ever changing clothes--even underwear?

I would have ignored it as an unmentioned detail, but AFTER the first few days, AFTER he sleeps with the girl, Child goes into some detail about Reacher's clothes-buying and laundry habits.


Eew.
