But, while we're on the subject of women with guns, this series includes a shot of me waving around a fake one, at the Zone LARP (at a CastleCon, IIRC). Back in the days when you could carry a vaguely realistic looking fake firearm at a hotel, and not have a five block radius immediately locked down.
Back in the days when I was about 50 pounds lighter. But I wouldn't trade my current life for that body, plus a big, honkin' jackpot. For all my bitching, I am a very lucky girl.
