Guys, what do you think of a woman who likes to go target shooting?
Do you assume she is unfeminine or do you think its sexy and/or are happy to have someone who shares a common interest?

But what if guns don't interest us? They don't interest me. Frankly a girl who likes to shoot is fine by me. It shows she's comfortable, and I would imagine more confident as well. So long as she is still "feminine" in her daily life. I don't want a butch girl, but guns don't necessarily make you butch.

I have no interest in guns, thus I have no interest in women that have guns. Living in Florida...well....yeah I am not a fan of gun owners unless it is their hobby to collect.

It depends.

What do you wear when you go target shooting?
:-P

A gun is like a tool.
It is neutral.
neither sexy nor non sexy.

But strap it on with a low holster and some nice hose.....
sexy.

How you present...
is how you seem.

I think it depends on how much of an interest you have in guns.

If you have one or two handguns, and you go to the shooting range once or twice a month, then it's not at all a deterrent. Just don't expect me to come with you or to share your interest.

On the other hand, if you have multiple gun racks in your living room, and go shooting multiple times in a month...

To me it's merely an interest of hers just as stamp collecting is to others.

for me it's not my thing. in the 80's guys were obsessive with trying to be women. Wearing earrings, makeup, metrosexual attitudes and dress; hated it. Now guys are back into that.

Now women are being more like guys. Tats, piercings, shooting guns.

If you enjoy it, that is cool. But if you are doing it to try and be sexy or to do whats the in thing; then no.

It's not a turn off but it sure isn't a turn on for me.

I thought this thread title was a euphemism for Chicks with Di.cks.

Never mind. Carry on.

I'm sure she can shoot the elk, but can she carry her half back to the truck?

I don't rank the target shooting portion, but the fact that the female knows how to operate a firearm is a positive in my opinion. I love independence, and I see nothing wrong with a female incorporating such defense practice into her life.

In my opinion, the only "sexy" it adds, comes from her independence.

Quite like asking me if a woman is sexier with a sticker on her bum or not.
No, it neither makes a woman sexier nor does it make her less sexy.
Shooting a gun isn't unfeminine... it's just a sport like any other. Doing a sport doesn't make you unfeminine.

I like women who come to a date armed, I may need the backup. I always admired the way Amanda Plummer handled her gun in Pulp Fiction myself. Nothing wrong with a woman who can handle a firearm without blowing her toes off: although rare, I'm certain they do exist, probably in Montana. Reminds me of the time I tried to teach my ex how to shoot my brand new Browning Highpower 9mm. "Now whatever you do, just don't drop it." She dropped it, end of the lesson. Anyone can be taught to shoot any firearm safely and accurately, all it takes is time and ammo. Once saw a woman drop a nice buck on a dead run at about 150 yards, nice shooting for anyone.

OP,

Kudos to you.
I have taught many people firearms handling/shooting, dispelling many myths in the process. Women are better shooters.

However, don a ballistic vest, as you will catch some flack.

Guys, what do you think of a woman who likes to go target shooting?

Depends.
Depends on how she feels about it.
Depends on how competitive she gets.
Depends if she's doing it right.
Depends on if she knows the safety rules.
Depends on what types of gun(s) she has.


Do you assume she is unfeminine

Only if she's wearing a spandex miniskirt or bikini, platform heels, and giggles every time she pulls the trigger causing the gun to fly back and smack her in the head.
That isn't very feminine. Hilarious. But not that feminine.

Otherwise it's just an activity.
One activity doesn't mean she's not feminine.


do you think its sexy

Not really.
I don't see a gun as an extension of my penis though.


happy to have someone who shares a common interest?

Yes. I would be very happy to have someone who shared that as an actual interest.

I enjoy going to the range with a woman. I see nothing wrong with a woman who has her own guns and knows how to use them.

SWEET! I have taken a first meet to the gun range. We had a great time.

Now if you have a very manly "butch" type personality, then no.

Definitely a turn on for some. <img src=http://www.plentyoffish.com/smiles/icon_201.gif border=0>
