my 69 year old Mom (Dem, but not overly liberal) has recently talked about wanting a handgun.
I recently built an AR for my girlfriend - I had a dust cover engraved with her nic-name on outside and Durty Gurl on inside... she LOVES it and gave me the biggest hug she's ever given me... She also made me smile when I showed her a .308 cartridge from a batch of Fed Gold Medal Match I got a while back - her response was "it's beautiful"
She acted like I gave her a diamond ring - I laughed and she said, no - it truly is! Gotta love her
Anyway - chicks are into guns more and more these days...
