Bang Bang, I Shot You Down

So, today I waffled between talking about guns or food. They're both fun topics, but with the cold and the snow and the ice and the fact that Winter isn't even trying to pretend it's over, I decided to talk about guns. No, not my scrawny guns and you can just ignore that scary face I'm making too.

Let's just focus on these kinds of guns. As I mentioned, we shot us some guns this weekend. It's the only really appropriate Valentine's Day activity there is as far as I'm concerned...At least the only one you'd want to see photos of anyway. My friend R. knows his guns and is all about safety. In fact, he had us wait to drink anything fun, until we put our toys away.

R. has this great pheasant dog name Scuba. Scuba was very excited when the guns started going off and wanted to go retrieve our stuffed animal kill again and again and again and again. Erik was really good about playing that game with him.

Just imagine how cold and wet and gross that stuffed animal was after an hour.

As you can see, us ladies (and I do use that term loosely) were super into shooting off guns. We even used the shot gun, and all made hilarious faces after we felt that kick-back against our shoulders.

These were the hideous creatures we shot. Seriously, each and every one of them was scarier than a clown.

I think you'd all agree, they really did deserve to be shot. I finally picked this one off it's branch with one of my last shots. I honestly don't know when I've been prouder of myself.

And this photo really doesn't have anything to do with the post. I just wanted to post another gratuitous pic of Erik in his eighties cowboy outfit - this time holding pistols. I'm going to go ahead and assume you all wanted to see it too. And if not, all y'all can just humor me.

That photo of the three of you ladies is hot....girls n guns rule!!

I agree 100% with those things you were shooting at, they are creepy looking little dolls. They needed to be shot at for sure.

Evil evil doll thing. Death to them. Over and over.
You're tagged.

Oh my god that pic of Erik is hilarious! Acid washed, wool collar, cowboy hat...NICE! Fashion dream date.
And yes--even though I am insanely not down with guns, those dolls need to die. thank you for taking care of them so that I may sleep at night!

Looks like a great fun weekend, not the least reason because you south far enough to be rid of the SNOW.

Like djsassafrass, I'm not a big gun fan, but you guys make it look so fun!

Erik in that jacket and hat seem somehow so familiar.... could it be I saw way too many peers in that same look growing up? nah. couldn't be it.

Scary face or not, I like that first photo of your guns. "Two tickets to the gun show."

Shooting guns sounds like loads of fun! You and your friends in that one shot look like Charlie's Angels.

Hey Ace, looking kinda squinty on the lever action there.

Looks like you had a good time.
Going to the Gun Show in Des Moines this weekend?

in response to all your posts of recent - you are looking way toooo hot, skinny and lovey
I'm totally jealous
Ohhhh those targets are super scary - were they bought at WalMart?

Gyuss Baaltar said...

Awesome idea for targets. I'm gonna remember those creepy things next time I head out to the plinking range.

1. You and your girls could do another, superior remake of Charlie's Angels. That photo could go on the poster.

2. The scary dolls could play the villans with conviction. Much better than Demi Moore.

Oh, I agree. Those are just ASKING to be riddled with bullets. Pumpkins are pretty good, too.

MrManuel said...

I would love to shoot these evil looking things! You have some guns on you too!

Churlita said...


That would be hilarious, but no.


Thanks. What is it about girls and guns?

No Regrets,

We done kilt them real good.


I know, Erik is totally hott as the eighties cowboy of my dreams, right?

And if you were ever all for gun control, those dolls will make you reconsider.


I have to say, it was really nice not to see snow for a couple of days. Of course, driving home was a different story.


We were totally gonna do the Charlies Angels pose, but then we got drunk and forgot. Oops.


You would have been so proud of me. I finally got the site figured out and ripped up some evil baby stuffed animals.


If I've said it once, I've said it a million times, it's all about presentation.


Whatever. I wish I looked half as good as you do.

I'm not sure where Erik got those. He seems to have a special gift for finding exactly what we need when we need it.


Yeah. They're perfect for shooting at.


Thanks. Those stuffed things are villainous.

Booda Baby,

Oooh. I wish we did have some pumpkins now that you mention it.

Mr Manuel,

Thanks. There was great pleasure in shooting those devil dolls.
