I love to hunt and shoot and because I truly believe in the 2nd Amendment and the rights I have as an American.
How do you feel about pink guns?
Do not have an opinion one way or another
Do you go to the range to amp up or chill
Neither, as my schedule does not allow me the time. Wish I could.
Best gun tip?
Be sure your gun fits. Don't use a firearm that was cut for a man. You will not shoot correctly and you will know you have been shooting the next day because of the black and blue marks you will have on your shoulder and arm.
