Also- guys usually think its hot, but I'm wondering if you guys find it intimidating, or a turn-off, or whatever else you can come up with.
So, what's your reaction to a girl who is experienced with guns?
Anything that is stereotyped for guys, like guns for example, would be a great turn on if a girl went shooting too. It's right up there, like if a dude is a sports fan, and he finds a girl who is a fan of that sport, she will get a lot of bonus points.
I can only imagine it being a bad thing, if the dude is dense, and has that "For men only attitude."
I grew up in a home where hunting is a part of our normal, my husband also likes to hunt. So I've been taught to respect firearms for the tool they are perceived to be in our home. I've been taught to handle and safely use firearms, including using them for deer and elk hunting so I've witnessed first hand the devastating effects that any firearm can inflict on another living thing. I've been taught that if you are going to take an animals life using a firearm or even a bow and arrow, that it should humanely done so its death is quick and inflicts the least pain and suffering possible. It's something I have never and probably never will take lightly, it has a high degree of reverence. I have taken deer, elk, wildfowl hunting for food that we utilize as much of the animal as we possibly can. It's not about the trophy, it's about the amazingly high quality source of lean unprocessed, untainted meat for food used to supplement our diet.
So I guess you could say I am a little pro-gun. I see nothing wrong with a female knowing how to use a firearm. Whether that be to protect herself from urban wildlife or using a firearm to put food on the table.
I believe that more people female and male should be familiar with firearms at the very least how to safely store, handle, load and fire a gun; there would probably be a lot less lax attitudes towards firearms as a result.
Then again, I'm not your normal "gun chick", I've been trained, I have a concieled weapons permit, I've had to carry a firearm for my own protection. (Advised by a Judge to get the training, the CWP and to carry a defensive weapon.). Which totally changed my perceptions.
Girls and guns, I love them both so girl with a gun is equal to double love for girl...lol
Seriously I will love to have a girl who knows how to trigger a gun...coz I know how to handle both of them and knows what they want and when they want...if you know what I mean:)
I grew up in an upscale uptight suburban area and I now can shoot better than most of my guy friends. I love it, its definitely a great stress reliever.
Hot. Why? I believe it's because it shows confidence.
It would be a turn off it she's dragging me to the shooting range but not at all if I take her there and she can handle a 12 gauge and doesn't shriek "OMG! NO WAY!" That's more of a turn off than anything.
I think it's kind of interesting as a hobby. I would probably ask her if she could show me how to use one. If she carried a handgun around with her though I would be disturbed. I don't rreally think civilians she could carry guns around casually.
I have a serious thing for girls that are confident, capable and positive. Shooting guns, or at least not being afraid of them seems to coincide with that a lot.
So yeah. I absolutely love it when my girlfriend is a better shot than me. :-)
Personally I hate guns, so I guess I wouldn't be too enthusiastic about it.
But it also depends. If you go hunting, then no thanks. If you just do sport shooting, that's OK. But shoot at living things and I'm outta here.
Um, depends on what she shoots. 'Deer rifles' and '30-30's'? Hick.
Semi-auto handguns, ar-15's? Impressive and charming.
I get similar reactions when I tell people. I think it's cool and fun. Shooting helps you become stronger mentally. I wish more girls went shooting. And if a guy gets scared by it he's not a man
Don't really care one way or the other. One hobby is as good as any other.
I'm a firearms instructor, should be pretty self-evident lol.
As a woman, I really wanna know how to shoot and how to use a gun. It is because using a gun is not only for men. And also, I find it attractive as a woman to use a gun. Maybe If I would be a guy, I also would find it so sexy.
