Quote of the day - Chicks with guns

"I was so surprised by the variety and breadth and diversity of these women,”.... “There are so many stereotypes about guns, mostly derived from popular culture, but the reality is so much more complex and varied than you can imagine.”

- Lindsey McCrum - Author of Chicks With Guns

One of the great things about becoming a gun owner, or in McCrum's case, interacting with gun owners, is that it forces you to reevaluate stereotypes and prejudices.  I don't know how many times someone has found out I own guns and their reaction was "wow!, really? I would never have expected that!" because in their mind I'm not what they picture as a "typical gun owner."
