What Women Talk About When They Talk About Shooting Guns

What Women Talk About When They Talk About Shooting Guns

According to the latest New York Post "trend" piece, which manages to be both chauvinistic and fetishy with a dash of service thrown in for good measure, "girls' night out is now more gunslinging than cocktail-sipping"! Here's what the ladies are saying about their enjoyable new pastime:

"It felt pretty natural and organic."

"It's similar to yoga in a lot of ways."

"I've been going through a lot of changes recently."

"I really liked archery when I was a Girl Scout."

"It won't be all sketchy and weird."

"This was not my first time at the rodeo."

"It felt great."

"It was sort of a 'Take Back the Night' thing for me."

"I've been wanting to do this since I was in my 20s."

"I felt really powerful and strong."

"You're like, 'Oh, my God, I am in total control here.'"

"I got so hyped, I just started dancing. I didn't care who was watching!"

That's how the saying goes, right? Dance like no one is watching, shoot a gun like you're doing yoga?

Full disclosure: This blogger took riflery at camp. She would still rather have a cocktail than shoot a gun, any day...but that's her.
