I am a 20 year old southern california girl who just took a shine to guns. I bought a winchester wildcat rifle and a .38 revolver. I really want a black widow though...

Welcome! I'm glad that you're here. I'm glad that you've become interested in firearms. For all of us here, they've been a lifelong enjoyment.
My two daughters became interested in firearms in elementary school, and their interest has continued. Now their children have also become interested.

Post a photo of yourself, preferably with a firearm

Or don't. That way, the controversy will go on longer, and who knows - may be more fun.

You have a point. But if you post a photo of a 4'11", 365 lb. woman with a mean look and an Uzi, everyone will sure take notice.

Not just me! I'm only one of many (and not that much of a skeptic). Let some of the other people get in on this.

How about it, guys? Give her your ideas.

Hello Charles,

What a pleasure to see you weigh in on the picture possibilities.

Unfortunately it would seem my stripes are starting to show through,
as I do not own a confederate flag...I feel like a disappointment...

Perhaps there is some other way I could assure the community of my
actuality

I love 'em too! Especially hogs. Pork roast, pork chops, bacon, short ribs, ham - WOW - send me in! Well, I draw the line at chitlin's - I don't eat guts. When I was a kid and we'd kill a hog, I was always right there when grandma would fry up cracklin's! I still love pigskins, but they're nowhere near as good as when they're fresh.

I love fish, too. Catfish right out of the river are fantastic. So are perch, crappie & bream right out of a lake or pond.

Damn! I'm making myself hungry!

I'm getting even hungrier!
When I was a kid we couldn't eat cottontails. Tularemia (sp?) was endemic.
Now some whitetail backstrap would sure hit the spot!

ebear is fun. Everybody picks on him, but he's a great guy, and gives back every bit as much shit as he gets.

You're a young girl from CA. What part? How do the races for governor and senator look to you? If you don't mind telling us, whom are you hoping to win?
Most of the people on here are hoping for the Republicans, but it may be because there aren't any better choices.

I have to be honest and say I don't like anyone who runs for office. By the time they get there they have just become part of the giant government machine.

I am sorry I am not going to be much of a good conversationalist on that front...I don't like governments very much.

Yea Greg, where are all the argumentative people? It's too quite. Interesting thing about study hall, that's where my mom met my dad. He convinced the study hall teacher that he needed my mom to help him practice his spanish for spanish class, so she allowed him to go sit by my mom. The really interesting part is, my mother never took spanish. My sly old man.

We are a bunch of good guys for the most part. As of late we have had a few people that pose as things they are not. The internet is that way some shlub thinks he is talking to some 20 year old hottie on the net, when in actualality he is talking to a 45 year old fatty sitting in dirty underwear eating sheetos play with his.......mouse. Just be yourseld and you will get along just fine and you will make some good freinds.

Either way, it's either some lame attempt to get attention from guys in the cyber world or some 15 year-old kid trying to have a laugh. Whoever you are, try being yourself. Most of us here realize that not every woman online is a 25 year old Swedish stewardess and not every guy is a Chip-n-Dales dancer
