I don't feel I can honestly call myself a gun blogger, because while folks like Linoge and Weerd and Tam talk about them on a daily basis, I'm lucky to talk about them once a week. If anything, I am the gunblog community's bratty little sister: when I'm not too busy playing with my dolls or having imaginary tea parties, I sometimes tag along with them to the range to shoot my .22 rimfire.
I feel very much like a child desperately trying to blend in with, and impress, a group of adults.
Be that as it may, I've written a fair amount about my experiences with owning, buying, shooting, accessorizing and maintaining guns. A few female friends have told me that I make gun concepts accessible and less scary to them in a way that other blogs and articles do not. I really don't know how to respond to comments like that, other than "Uh, thank you?"
This is a resource page for those gunnies who want to look at what I've written about firearms without having to wade through all the other nerdy stuff I like to talk about, like role-playing games and science fiction and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
