Well Goll-ly, I Bought A Gun

Don't laugh now....

I know, it's a gun, but not a gun.  But it is a gun.  I have mixed feelings about it.  I'm such a nurturer by nature, this is completely against my being to own.  But I need to be able to defend my animals, so that's part of nurturing too, I guess.  For right now, this is about as violent as I'm willing to get, unless it doesn't work.  Then I have to look inside myself and see what I really believe.

It's a BB gun and a pellet gun in one.  It's fairly manly-ish, mostly.  They had a pink one, but since I'm fighting against all the girly-girl stereotypes here, buying a pink gun just ain't gonna cut it.  Most of what I do (and all of you do, too, for that matter), is considered by most around here to be "men's work", but I never bought into that.  Puh-leeze.  Men's work, schmen's work.  Anything they can do, I can do SO much better.  Buying a pink gun would just go against my inner everything, so no, I bought the oaky looking one with a site.  But it's still called a Daisy.  That just cracks me up.

Next I build myself a target and learn to use the dang thing.  And I defend my own.  Bring out that Annie Oakley that's in there somewhere.  What a step.

  1. Oh see I could not resist getting the pink one, but I simply can not resist anything pink and intend to have hubby paint my tractor pink when I buy one :)
    I hope this helps protect your flock.

  2. Oh heck, I would have bought the pink one, too, just because.
    Practice is a good idea - hopefully you won't have to use it.

  3. Oh man, how ironic..just before Christmas I too was looking at that exact gun. Me, who's so against those damn hunters! I laughed when I told my family I may ask Santa for a gun. I never did though, I think I'll wait and see how yours works. :)


I always love to hear from you. Thank you for leaving your comment here!
