I am not the normal gun owner. Insert a bunch of generalizations about stereotypical gun owners here. I don't fit the mold of a gun owner. And I don't own one or more (not saying how many I do or don't have) just because I have to protect myself and my livestock either.
Found photo on Facebook, sorry I can't give credit to the creator. Edit; Thanks to Stephen the photographer is Oleg Volk. Great photos!
Now I haven't had dreadlocks in years, I have been every shade of purple hair color they could find and come up with. I do wear combat boots (tanker boots on special occasions). I have boots that high, I call them my hooker boots, and wear them on the motorcycle. I have fishnet stockings and have many piercings and tats. I recently died my hair back to a normal color because of my business venture, but in time it will go back to another not nature color. Heck I even got married on Halloween with a slit throat and blood running down my cleavage.
And I enjoy reading gun blogs.
I recently had a conversation with a reader. She has been experiencing some attitude from some of the bloggers she likes to read because she looks like the above picture. I suggested she tell them to eff off. I really don't see the problem. If your readers are agreeing with you on a passionate subject, or heck even if they don't, what does it matter if they are normal looking or not?
I have been lucky in this department. I don't get criticized over my appearance by the bloggers I read. I get criticized for other things and we disagree about things, maybe have a little spat about it, but these guys just don't give a hoot about what I look like. And I like that about them.
Some people say I look like this to get attention. Funny because I don't care much for attention. I don't do it to shock, I do it because I love it. I like my clothes and am comfortable in them. And my favorite color is purple, plus it brings out the blue in my eyes. All my tats have a personal meaning, like my boys foot prints running up my back. My piercing are because I was a test subject years ago, a friend was learning to be a piercer, I was the only one willing to let her practice (phone calls about things not suppose to be bleeding were a bit scary at times).
There are some blogs that catch my attention and I will start to read them, however I will sometimes catch a glimpse that this blogger is too self involved to be much fun. I will pass that blog by.
YeoldFurt is one of my favorite gun bloggers. He commented on one of my posts years ago, and I have been following him ever since. His blog is Old Lightning.
Wolfe over on Wolf's Blog is another. He isn't limited to guns, he talks about all kinds of survivalist/prepper and personal things.
Stephen is a relatively new blogger to me. But I like his style. I enjoy his joys. I think we will make a good fit. You can find him at Standing outside looking in.
Many of the homesteading blogs occasionally discuss guns. But I will not include you in this list. I love ya, but . . .
The newest gun related blog to my list is Survivor man lite. I will just have to see how it goes there.
So I only have a few of you on this list. I must really like you. (sorry giggling)
What about you. Got Gun? Got a blog you would welcome some freak girls to hang out in, and comment?
