A Girl and Her Gun puts her new M&P through its paces, she of course shoots like a girl, meaning that her groups are half the size of any grown man of equal training 8) Still the quote is from the comments:
Men, I want to shoot a watermelon so bad…lol. Only paper and steel so far:)
Reminded me of this video from one of my first blog shoots:
Lucky video, caught me putting a 1oz 12 gauge slug through a nice summer watermelon. You can also see the dirt fly as I miss all around that melon because I’m a total ape with a shotgun!
I’m sure if she wants to head to New Hampshire this summer I’ll pack in a TON of melons and ammo! But in Virginia there is no shortage of bloggers to arrange kickass shoots like this!
Oh and to tie back into the title. Shooting is fun. Showing off old guns is fun, and taking training classes is fun. And knowing that if things get bad you have the power to defend yourself feels VERY good.
Meanwhile look at the antis. They’re dour, they talk about death, and they promote helplessness. While women like A Girl and Her Gun, and cool people like Kathy Jackson, both I think will admit will NEVER be king of the steel cage are learning and teaching others how to defend themselves against violent people who are twice their size and physical strength. Tall, Athletic, and strong Collin Goddard is suggesting people give up their rights and hide under their desks.
Is there any question why so few people choose the avenue presented by the antis, and so many people are getting into shooting for the first time in their lives.
