I met a new person yesterday, and ended up spending a while chatting with her about all sorts of stuff. As part of our conversation we got to talking about the Paleo diet, and I have a standard picture in my phone that I use to show people my weight loss. The picture is a comparison of me shooting two different matches, pistol in hand, one where I’m big and fat and disgusting, and one after I lost about 60lbs.
I always preface showing the picture to someone new with “Just so you know, my main hobby is competitive handgun shooting”.
Anyways, that comment got the ball rolling and I found out that this new friend collects Mosin Nagant rifles, and shoots a Walther PK380. Of course this lead to a 15 minute conversation about guns, gun rights, liberty, and the current state of things.
This furthers my theory that most people like guns, but nobody talks about it. I talk about it, because shooting is fun.
Are you out as a gun guy/gal?
