Well , she has good taste!

However, I must point out that she is carrying the shotgun improperly.

One should properly carry the gun with the butt over the shoulder and hold it by the barrel. Thereby ensuring that you have control of where and at whom the muzzle points.

And also so you don't whack somebodys expensive new toy in their expensive new wood stock they just had fitted, or worse whack them in the head with the muzzle (very painfull!)

Really folks, I don't make this stuff up,having been both whacked on the head and having my barrels dinged by persons slinging their barrels over their shoulder.

I regret to report I've never met this beauty, much to my chagrin. To doubters, I can prove it easily.

First, the toe of the pad has not been sanded down to make it more comfortable for ladies.

Second, neither ammo nor backup weapon are available, unless she's VERY good at concealing same.

Third, anyone who's been instructed by me knows long hair HAS to be tied off when shooting.

Fourth,it appears the action is closed.Need I say more?

All levity aside, Oleg, thanks for the pic, no offense taken for the joke, and let me know when the swimsuit issue is coming out.....

A 7-shot .357 and a nice, sharp knife are on the other side of the person. runt says that she does shoot with her hair down

A serious question has occured to me: the safety on this gun had been replaced with a larger button. Weirdly, it operates in reverse of every other crossbolt safety I've seen: push right to fire, left to make safe. Is there any way to reverse that?

Now that's good concealed carry, Oleg!

An explanation of long hair and shooting....

Besides the possibility of long hair getting caught in the action or moving parts, it also catches detritus such as unburned powder flecks, lead particles and other contaminants we do not want around our eating and breathing. I recommend tying long hair back and up, and washing it soon after shooting just as we wash our hands.

Best regards to you both....
