Who or what got you into shooting?

I was introduced to shooting by my loving boyfriend. With his help I discovered a new found confidence in all areas of my life and not to mention some of the best dates I’ve ever been on! I’m so glad to have been introduced to my new passion :)

Do you shoot handguns, shotguns, rifles or all of the above?

All guns! I have a revolver, a pistol, shotgun, and two rifles.

Do you have a favorite accessory or clothing item you won't go shooting or hunting without? What makes it so important?

Can’t go out without my pink range bag and pink earmuffs :)

What's your most unusual gun-related item?

Probably my AK-47. I feel like most women don’t gravitate towards that choice.

I own a gun because:

I am a powerful, empowered woman that does not want to depend on a man or the police to protect me. And practicing isn’t so bad ;)
