You Know You're A Shooter When....

Recommended Posts

You know for a fact that you can drive through the airport security entrance with a trunk full of whatever type of firearms. . . What are they looking for when they ask to see in the trunk? :ph34r:

You know you are a female shooter when -

  • That clank in your dryer is a barney bullet and not spare change you left in your jeans pocket
  • Your idea of a sparkly now comes from a gun shop and not a jewelry store - ok not all the time
  • You have 'range rules' with your kids so they don't repeat the words they hear mom say when a stage goes bad
  • You have work clothes, play clothes and RANGE clothes
  • You ask if that holster, range bag, agrip etc comes in colors!

You name your kids Colt and Remington (not me obviously - the SW region glock rep).

You pie a corner to spy on what your kid is doing.

Your dog will sit and raise it's paws in the air into surrender position when you say "shooter ready?"

You sweep your jacket to reach into your pants pocket.

You shop the juniors department to find low rise jeans/shorts so you don't have to sew new belt loops.

You test various start positions when trying on sports bras.

You have something called a "hobby room" instead of a home office or den and have decorated the same with geometric shapes that are coindentally the same size as an A zone.

You've had a date practically break a leg running for the front door when he saw Women & Guns on your coffee table.

You've been dumped because you didn't like to stay out late the night before a match.

I did not read all of these so I hope this is not a dulplicate.

a little modification of the red dot hood ornament

"your hood ornament is a miniature target so you can dry fire at the stoplights on the way to the range"

....you freak the delivery guy out that shows up at the office when you're dry firing on the day your boss is out of the office... :ph34r:

...you convince your husband to have any future son's middle name be Gauge (may have to compromise a bit and go with Gage)

...telling everyone to buy you gift cards to stores that sell ammo or cash (and they know what you'll be doing with it)for any occasion and holiday

...when your LEO friends do the right thing at your birthday dinner with gifts of good legal ammo for your carry handgun... wrapped in plain brown paper bags... and a smirk on their faces. :D

You give your son the middle name "Cooper" and don't tell your wife where that name came from until after the ink on the birth certificate is dry.

Yes, one of the local USPSA members here in Massachsuetts did that. "Cooper" is now shooting 9mm in production division.

Your wife buys you a parts tank for Christmas knowing that you'll fill it with rifle bore cleaner and use it to clean your guns. Then for your birthday she buys an air compressor so you can blow dry the guns you cleaned in the parts tank.

When downwind of a person shooting, you can identify what type of smokeless powder is being shot by smell.

When your laying on your bed looking at the ceiling fan, and thinking its a texas star, and imagining what order to shoot it in.

When you get a tatoo of an IPSC target on your body.

When you have all your front site magazines catogorized by date, volume and number.

When you get cold shakes after long bouts of non shooting.

When everything in your house has been aimed at, at one time or another.

When you cant sleep because you are thinking about what possible scenarios may show up at the next match.

when your dog or cat has become immune to the sound of the buzzer.

When half of your tee shirts have some sort of gun, gun name or match that you have attended.

When you have an overlay in your wallet.

When you run through your house like its a field course.

When you get hit by lead off the steel targets and laugh about it.

When you buy those bullet hole stickers and paste them all over your car.

When you use bullet cases as ear plugs.

When you go into the local academy, wal-mart etc you go straight to the gun section.

When you polish all your wifes brass figurines to a brilliant shine in your tumbler, because you've got your technique down.

....you wear shoes when you dry fire at home because magazines have squished your toes too many times...

....you have permanent grease/powder residue stains on your shirts from wiping your cmore.....

Addendum to knowing you're a female shooter...

....guys who pretend to know how to shoot and then proceed to hold the gun incorrectly turns you off (no matter how cute they are)...

....during the off season you have nice long manicured nails, during shooting season, you don't have nails....

...you have a certain pair of (longer) shorts to use when going prone (learned this the hard way)...
