And I also suffer from a life-long addiction to the written word.
So, naturally, an article in the Atlanta newspaper about a club called Girls, Guns, and Good Books kinda grabbed my interest by the collar and gave it a good shaking. Yup, sure enough, once a month, after this group of gals puts a hurting on some targets at the SharpShooters USA shooting range, they adjourn to the Peerless Book Store, where they discuss books over wine and cheese.
I mean, WOW! Talk about a ladies night out, huh?
WHAT? You don't think it's lady-like for women to shoot guns? You think it's a sign of today's rough and tumble world?
|Tell it to this group of ladies from the 1920s.|
|Or this gal circa WWII.|
|Or these Southern belles featured in a documentary.|
- Janie's Got a Gun [Aerosmith]
- Happiness is a Warm Gun [Beatles]
- Pistol Packin' Mama [Bing Crosby]
- I Didn't Know My Gun Was Loaded [Andrews Sisters]
- Time to Get a Gun [Fred Eagelsmith]
- Machine Gun [Jimi Hendrix]
Can you think of any other songs that'd fill the bill? How about books? Maybe The Guns of Navarone? I'll betcha you guys and gals can load me up with some great suggestions. So shoot 'em at me. I can take it. And tell me, have you ever gone target shooting? (It's a gr-r-reat way to kill time.)
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
